9 “Hell j 3from beneath is excited about you,

To meet you at your coming;

It stirs up the dead for you,

All the chief ones of the earth;

It has raised up from their thrones

All the kings of the nations.

10 They all shall kspeak and say to you:

‘Have you also become as weak as we?

Have you become like us?

11 Your pomp is brought down to Sheol,

And the sound of your stringed instruments;

The maggot is spread under you,

And worms cover you.’

The Fall of Lucifer

12 “How lyou are fallen from heaven,

O 4Lucifer, son of the morning!

How you are cut down to the ground,

You who weakened the nations!

13 For you have said in your heart:

m‘I will ascend into heaven,

nI will exalt my throne above the stars of God;

I will also sit on the omount of the congregation

pOn the farthest sides of the north;

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,

qI will be like the Most High.’

15 Yet you rshall be brought down to Sheol,

To the 5lowest depths of the Pit.

16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,

And consider you, saying:

Is this the man who made the earth tremble,

Who shook kingdoms,

17 Who made the world as a wilderness

And destroyed its cities,

Who 6did not open the house of his prisoners?’
