12 How you have fallen(A) from heaven,
    morning star,(B) son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
    you who once laid low the nations!(C)
13 You said in your heart,
    “I will ascend(D) to the heavens;
I will raise my throne(E)
    above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,(F)
    on the utmost heights(G) of Mount Zaphon.[a]
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;(H)
    I will make myself like the Most High.”(I)
15 But you are brought down(J) to the realm of the dead,(K)
    to the depths(L) of the pit.(M)

16 Those who see you stare at you,
    they ponder your fate:(N)

    and made kingdoms tremble,
17 the man who made the world a wilderness,(P)

  1. Isaiah 14:13 Or of the north; Zaphon was the most sacred mountain of the Canaanites.

11 The word of the Lord came to me: 12 “Son of man, take up a lament(A) concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“‘You were the seal of perfection,
    full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.(B)
13 You were in Eden,(C)
    the garden of God;(D)
every precious stone(E) adorned you:
    carnelian, chrysolite and emerald,
    topaz, onyx and jasper,
    lapis lazuli, turquoise(F) and beryl.[a]
Your settings and mountings[b] were made of gold;
    on the day you were created they were prepared.(G)
14 You were anointed(H) as a guardian cherub,(I)
    for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
    you walked among the fiery stones.
15 You were blameless in your ways
    from the day you were created
    till wickedness was found in you.
16 Through your widespread trade
    you were filled with violence,(J)
    and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
    and I expelled you, guardian cherub,(K)
    from among the fiery stones.
17 Your heart became proud(L)
    on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom
    because of your splendor.
So I threw you to the earth;
    I made a spectacle of you before kings.(M)
18 By your many sins and dishonest trade
    you have desecrated your sanctuaries.
So I made a fire(N) come out from you,
    and it consumed you,
and I reduced you to ashes(O) on the ground
    in the sight of all who were watching.(P)
19 All the nations who knew you
    are appalled(Q) at you;
you have come to a horrible end
    and will be no more.(R)’”
