13 You said in your heart,
    “I will ascend(A) to the heavens;
I will raise my throne(B)
    above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,(C)
    on the utmost heights(D) of Mount Zaphon.[a]
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;(E)
    I will make myself like the Most High.”(F)

The pride(A) of your heart has deceived you,
    you who live in the clefts of the rocks[a](B)
    and make your home on the heights,
you who say to yourself,
    ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’(C)
Though you soar like the eagle
    and make your nest(D) among the stars,
    from there I will bring you down,”(E)
declares the Lord.(F)
