14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;s

I will make myself like the Most High.”t

15 But you are brought downu to the realm of the dead,v

to the depthsw of the pit.x

16 Those who see you stare at you,

they ponder your fate:y

“Is this the man who shookz the earth

and made kingdoms tremble,

17 the man who made the world a wilderness,a

who overthrewb its cities

and would not let his captives go home?”c

18 All the kings of the nations lie in state,

each in his own tomb.d

19 But you are cast oute of your tomb

like a rejected branch;

you are covered with the slain,f

with those pierced by the sword,g

those who descend to the stones of the pit.h

Like a corpse trampled underfoot,

20 you will not join them in burial,i

for you have destroyed your land

and killed your people.

Let the offspringj of the wickedk

never be mentionedl again.

21 Prepare a place to slaughter his childrenm

for the sins of their ancestors;n

they are not to rise to inherit the land

and cover the earth with their cities.
