'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 be like the Most High.'
" The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
"Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;
I cast you to the ground,
I laid you before kings,
That they might gaze at you.
And the pride of Israel testifies to his face,
But they do not return to the LORD their God,
Nor seek Him for all this.
