You told yourself, “I will ·go up to heaven [or ascend to the sky]. I will put my throne above God’s stars. I will ·sit [or rule] on the mountain of the ·gods [L assembly], on the slopes of ·the sacred mountain [or the north; or Mount Zaphon; C known as the mountain of Baal].
You said to yourself, “I’ll climb to heaven. I’ll set my throne over the stars of God. I’ll run the assembly of angels that meets on sacred Mount Zaphon. I’ll climb to the top of the clouds. I’ll take over as King of the Universe!”
You said in your heart, ‘I will go up to the heavens. I’ll raise my throne above the stars of God. I’ll sit as king on the mountain where the gods meet. I’ll set up my throne on the highest slopes of Mount Zaphon.
For thou hast said in thine lev, I will ascend into Shomayim, I will exalt my kisse above the kokhavim (stars) of El (G-d); I will sit also upon the har mo’ed (mount of assembly), on yarketei Tzafon (on the heights of Tzafon);
Remember how you said to yourself, “I will ascend to heaven—reach higher and with more power— and set my throne high above God’s own stars?” Remember how you thought you could be a god, saying: “I will sit among them at the mount of assembly in the northern heights.
Which saidest in thine heart, I shall ascend into heaven, I shall enhance my seat above the stars of (the) heaven(s); I shall sit in the hill of (the) testament, in the sides of the north. (Who saidest in thy heart, I shall ascend into heaven, I shall exalt, or I shall set, my throne above the stars of the heavens; I shall sit on the mountain where the gods meet, on the sides of the north.)
