13 You said to yourself:
“I will ascend to the heavens;(A)
I will set up my throne
above the stars of God.(B)
I will sit on the mount of the gods’ assembly,
in the remotest parts of the North.[a](C)
14 I will ascend above the highest clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High.”

  1. Isaiah 14:13 Or of Zaphon

Your presumptuous heart has deceived you,(A)
you who live in clefts of the rock[a][b](B)
in your home on the heights,
who say to yourself,
“Who can bring me down to the ground?”(C)
Though you seem to soar[c] like an eagle(D)
and make your nest among the stars,(E)
even from there I will bring you down.
This is the Lord’s declaration.
