ISA-14:1 For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet

choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers

shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of


ISA-14:2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their

place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of

the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them

captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over

their oppressors.

ISA-14:3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD

shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and

from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve.

ISA-14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king

of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden

city ceased!

ISA-14:5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, [and] the

sceptre of the rulers.

ISA-14:6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual

stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, [and]

none hindereth.

ISA-14:7 The whole earth is at rest, [and] is quiet: they break

forth into singing.

ISA-14:8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, [and] the cedars of

Lebanon, [saying], Since thou art laid down, no feller is come

up against us.

ISA-14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet [thee] at

thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, [even] all the

chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones

all the kings of the nations.

ISA-14:10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also

become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?

ISA-14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, [and] the noise

of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover


ISA-14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the

morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst

weaken the nations!

ISA-14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into

heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will

sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the


ISA-14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will

be like the most High.

ISA-14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides

of the pit.

ISA-14:16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee,

[and] consider thee, [saying, Is] this the man that made the

earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

ISA-14:17 [That] made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed

the cities thereof; [that] opened not the house of his prisoners?

ISA-14:18 All the kings of the nations, [even] all of them, lie

in glory, every one in his own house.

ISA-14:19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable

branch, [and as] the raiment of those that are slain, thrust

through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as

a carcase trodden under feet.

ISA-14:20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because

thou hast destroyed thy land, [and] slain thy people: the seed

of evildoers shall never be renowned.

ISA-14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of

their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor

fill the face of the world with cities.

ISA-14:22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of

hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son,

and nephew, saith the LORD.

ISA-14:23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and

pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of

destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

ISA-14:24 The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have

thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so]

shall it stand:

ISA-14:25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my

mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from

off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.

ISA-14:26 This [is] the purpose that is purposed upon the whole

earth: and this [is] the hand that is stretched out upon all the


ISA-14:27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall

disannul [it]? and his hand [is] stretched out, and who shall

turn it back?

ISA-14:28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.

ISA-14:29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of

him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root

shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit [shall be] a fiery

flying serpent.

ISA-14:30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the

needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with

famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.

ISA-14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina,

[art] dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke,

and none [shall be] alone in his appointed times.

ISA-14:32 What shall [one] then answer the messengers of the

nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his

people shall trust in it.
