Who is it you have insulted and blasphemed?1 Against whom have you raised your voice and lifted your eyes in pride? Against the Holy One2 of Israel!
By your messengers you have heaped insults on the Lord. And you have said,3 "With my many chariots4 I have ascended the heights of the mountains, the utmost heights of Lebanon. I have cut down5 its tallest cedars, the choicest of its pines. I have reached its remotest parts, the finest of its forests.
I have dug wells in foreign lands and drunk the water there. With the soles of my feet I have dried up all the streams of Egypt."
