12 “How dyou are fallen from heaven,
O Day Star, eson of Dawn!
How you are cut down to the ground,
you who laid the nations low!
f‘I will ascend to heaven;
above the stars of God
gI will set my throne on high;
I will sit on the mount of assembly
in the far reaches of the north;3
I will make myself like the Most High.’
15 hBut you are brought down to Sheol,
to the far reaches of the pit.
and ponder over you:
‘Is this ithe man who made the earth tremble,
who shook kingdoms,
and overthrew its cities,
jwho did not let his prisoners go home?’
each in his own tomb;4
like a loathed branch,
kclothed with the slain, those pierced by the sword,
who go down to the stones of the pit,
like a dead body trampled underfoot.
because you have destroyed your land,
you have slain your people.
“May lthe offspring of evildoers
nevermore be named!
mbecause of the guilt of their fathers,
lest they rise and possess the earth,
and fill the face of the world with cities.”
Or in the remote parts of Zaphon
