How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!

'I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.'

Shall come upon everything proud and lofty,
Upon everything lifted up—
And it shall be brought low—

And upon all the oaks of Bashan;

And upon all the hills that are lifted up;
Upon every high tower,
And upon every fortified wall;
Upon all the ships of Tarshish,
And upon all the beautiful sloops.
The loftiness of man shall be bowed down,
And the haughtiness of men shall be brought low;
The LORD alone will be exalted in that day,
" The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?

Till iniquity was found in you.
