Isaiah 14:7-17 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
7 All of the earth rests [and] is quiet; they break forth [into] singing. 8 Even [the] cypresses rejoice over you, the cedars of Lebanon: 'Since you were laid down, no [wood] cutter comes up against us.' 9 Sheol below is getting excited over you, to meet {you when you come};a it arouses [the] dead spirits for you, all of [the] leaders of [the] earth. It raises all of [the] kings of [the] nations from their thrones. 10 All of them will respond and say to you, 'You yourself also were made weak like us! You have become the same as us!' 11 Your pride is brought down [to] Sheol, [and] the sound of your harps; maggotsb are spread out beneath you like a bed, and your covering is worms.c 12 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of dawn! You are cut down to the ground, conqueror of nations! 13 And you yourself said in your heart, 'I will ascend [to] heaven; I will raise up my throne above the stars of God; and I will sit on [the] mountain of assembly on the summit of Zaphon; 14 I will ascend to [the] high places of [the] clouds,d I will make myself like the Most High.' 15 But you are brought down to Sheol, to [the] depths of [the] pit. 16 Those who see you will stare at you, they will look closely at you: '[Is] this the man who made the earth tremble, who caused kingdoms to shake, 17 who made [the] world like the desert and destroyed its cities, [who] would not let his prisoners go home?'
