You have been cut down to the earth,
You who have weakened the nations!
‘I will aascend to heaven;
I will braise my throne above the stars of God,
And I will sit on the mount of assembly

aI will make myself like the Most High.’

‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world like a awilderness
And overthrew its cities,
