Isaiah 14 (WEBP)

[1] For Yahweh will have compassion on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land. The foreigner will join himself with them, and they will unite with the house of Jacob.
[2] The peoples will take them, and bring them to their place. The house of Israel will possess them in Yahweh’s land for servants and for handmaids. They will take as captives those whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
[3] It will happen in the day that Yahweh will give you rest from your sorrow, from your trouble, and from the hard service in which you were made to serve,
[4] that you will take up this parable against the king of Babylon, and say, “How the oppressor has ceased! The golden city has ceased!”
[5] Yahweh has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers,
[6] who struck the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, who ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that no one restrained.
[7] The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet. They break out in song.
[8] Yes, the cypress trees rejoice with you, with the cedars of Lebanon, saying, “Since you are humbled, no lumberjack has come up against us.”
[9] Sheol° from beneath has moved for you to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the departed spirits for you, even all the rulers of the earth. It has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
[10] They all will answer and ask you, “Have you also become as weak as we are? Have you become like us?”
[11] Your pomp is brought down to Sheol,° with the sound of your stringed instruments. Maggots are spread out under you, and worms cover you.
[12] How you have fallen from heaven, shining one, son of the dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low!
[13] You said in your heart, “I will ascend into heaven! I will exalt my throne above the stars of God! I will sit on the mountain of assembly, in the far north!
[14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds! I will make myself like the Most High!”
[15] Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,° to the depths of the pit.
[16] Those who see you will stare at you. They will ponder you, saying, “Is this the man who made the earth to tremble, who shook kingdoms,
[17] who made the world like a wilderness, and overthrew its cities, who didn’t release his prisoners to their home?”
[18] All the kings of the nations sleep in glory, everyone in his own house.
[19] But you are cast away from your tomb like an abominable branch, clothed with the slain who are thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit; like a dead body trodden under foot.
[20] You will not join them in burial, because you have destroyed your land. You have killed your people. The offspring of evildoers will not be named forever.
[21] Prepare for slaughter of his children because of the iniquity of their fathers, that they not rise up and possess the earth, and fill the surface of the world with cities.
[22] “I will rise up against them,” says Yahweh of Armies, “and cut off from Babylon name and remnant, and son and son’s son,” says Yahweh.
[23] “I will also make it a possession for the porcupine, and pools of water. I will sweep it with the broom of destruction,” says Yahweh of Armies.
[24] Yahweh of Armies has sworn, saying, “Surely, as I have thought, so shall it happen; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
[25] that I will break the Assyrian in my land, and tread him under foot on my mountains. Then his yoke will leave them, and his burden leave their shoulders.
[26] This is the plan that is determined for the whole earth. This is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations.
[27] For Yahweh of Armies has planned, and who can stop it? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”
[28] This burden was in the year that King Ahaz died.
[29] Don’t rejoice, O Philistia, all of you, because the rod that struck you is broken; for out of the serpent’s root an adder will emerge, and his fruit will be a fiery flying serpent.
[30] The firstborn of the poor will eat, and the needy will lie down in safety; and I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant will be killed.
[31] Howl, gate! Cry, city! You are melted away, Philistia, all of you; for smoke comes out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks.
[32] What will they answer the messengers of the nation? That Yahweh has founded Zion, and in her the afflicted of his people will take refuge.

Isaiah 14:11 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Isaiah 14 (KJVS)

[1] For the LORD H3068 will have mercy H7355 (8762) on Jacob H3290, and will yet choose H977 (8804) Israel H3478, and set H3240 (8689) them in their own land H127: and the strangers H1616 shall be joined H3867 (8738) with them, and they shall cleave H5596 (8738) to the house H1004 of Jacob H3290.
[2] And the people H5971 shall take H3947 (8804) them, and bring H935 (8689) them to their place H4725: and the house H1004 of Israel H3478 shall possess H5157 (8694) them in the land H127 of the LORD H3068 for servants H5650 and handmaids H8198: and they shall take them captives H7617 (8802), whose captives H7617 (8802) they were; and they shall rule H7287 (8804) over their oppressors H5065 (8802).
[3] And it shall come to pass in the day H3117 that the LORD H3068 shall give thee rest H5117 (8687) from thy sorrow H6090, and from thy fear H7267, and from the hard H7186 bondage H5656 wherein thou wast made to serve H5647 (8795),
[4] That thou shalt take up H5375 (8804) this proverb H4912 against the king H4428 of Babylon H894, and say H559 (8804), How hath the oppressor H5065 (8802) ceased H7673 (8804)! the golden city H4062 ceased H7673 (8804)!
[5] The LORD H3068 hath broken H7665 (8804) the staff H4294 of the wicked H7563, [and] the sceptre H7626 of the rulers H4910 (8802).
[6] He who smote H5221 (8688) the people H5971 in wrath H5678 with a continual H1115 H5627 stroke H4347, he that ruled H7287 (8802) the nations H1471 in anger H639, is persecuted H4783, [and] none H1097 hindereth H2820 (8804).
[7] The whole earth H776 is at rest H5117 (8804), [and] is quiet H8252 (8804): they break forth H6476 (8804) into singing H7440.
[8] Yea, the fir trees H1265 rejoice H8055 (8804) at thee, [and] the cedars H730 of Lebanon H3844, [saying], Since thou art laid down H7901 (8804), no feller H3772 (8802) is come up H5927 (8799) against us.
[9] Hell H7585 from beneath is moved H7264 (8804) for thee to meet H7125 (8800) [thee] at thy coming H935 (8800): it stirreth up H5782 (8790) the dead H7496 for thee, [even] all the chief ones H6260 of the earth H776; it hath raised up H6965 (8689) from their thrones H3678 all the kings H4428 of the nations H1471.
[10] All they shall speak H6030 (8799) and say H559 (8799) unto thee, Art thou also become weak H2470 (8795) as we? art thou become like H4911 (8738) unto us?
[11] Thy pomp H1347 is brought down H3381 (8717) to the grave H7585, [and] the noise H1998 of thy viols H5035: the worm H7415 is spread H3331 (8714) under thee, and the worms H8438 cover H4374 thee.
[12] How art thou fallen H5307 (8804) from heaven H8064, O Lucifer H1966, son H1121 of the morning H7837 (8676) H3213 (8685)! [how] art thou cut down H1438 (8738) to the ground H776, which didst weaken H2522 (8802) the nations H1471!
[13] For thou hast said H559 (8804) in thine heart H3824, I will ascend H5927 (8799) into heaven H8064, I will exalt H7311 (8686) my throne H3678 above H4605 the stars H3556 of God H410: I will sit H3427 (8799) also upon the mount H2022 of the congregation H4150, in the sides H3411 of the north H6828:
[14] I will ascend H5927 (8799) above the heights H1116 of the clouds H5645; I will be like H1819 (8691) the most High H5945.
[15] Yet thou shalt be brought down H3381 (8714) to hell H7585, to the sides H3411 of the pit H953.
[16] They that see H7200 (8802) thee shall narrowly look H7688 (8686) upon thee, [and] consider H995 (8709) thee, [saying, Is] this the man H376 that made the earth H776 to tremble H7264 (8688), that did shake H7493 (8688) kingdoms H4467;
[17] [That] made H7760 (8804) the world H8398 as a wilderness H4057, and destroyed H2040 (8804) the cities H5892 thereof; [that] opened H6605 (8804) not the house H1004 of his prisoners H615?
[18] All the kings H4428 of the nations H1471, [even] all of them, lie H7901 (8804) in glory H3519, every one H376 in his own house H1004.
[19] But thou art cast out H7993 (8717) of thy grave H6913 like an abominable H8581 (8737) branch H5342, [and as] the raiment H3830 of those that are slain H2026 (8803), thrust through H2944 (8794) with a sword H2719, that go down H3381 (8802) to the stones H68 of the pit H953; as a carcase H6297 trodden under feet H947 (8716).
[20] Thou shalt not be joined H3161 (8799) with them in burial H6900, because thou hast destroyed H7843 (8765) thy land H776, [and] slain H2026 (8804) thy people H5971: the seed H2233 of evildoers H7489 (8688) shall never H5769 be renowned H7121 (8735).
[21] Prepare H3559 (8685) slaughter H4293 for his children H1121 for the iniquity H5771 of their fathers H1; that they do not H1077 rise H6965 (8799), nor possess H3423 (8804) the land H776, nor fill H4390 (8804) the face H6440 of the world H8398 with cities H6145 (8676) H5892.
[22] For I will rise up H6965 (8804) against them, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, and cut off H3772 (8689) from Babylon H894 the name H8034, and remnant H7605, and son H5209, and nephew H5220, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[23] I will also make H7760 (8804) it a possession H4180 for the bittern H7090, and pools H98 of water H4325: and I will sweep H2894 (8773) it with the besom H4292 of destruction H8045 (8687), saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635.
[24] The LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 hath sworn H7650 (8738), saying H559 (8800), Surely as I have thought H1819 (8765), so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed H3289 (8804), [so] shall it stand H6965 (8799):
[25] That I will break H7665 (8800) the Assyrian H804 in my land H776, and upon my mountains H2022 tread him under foot H947 (8799): then shall his yoke H5923 depart H5493 (8804) from off them, and his burden H5448 depart H5493 (8799) from off their shoulders H7926.
[26] This [is] the purpose H6098 that is purposed H3289 (8803) upon the whole earth H776: and this [is] the hand H3027 that is stretched out H5186 (8803) upon all the nations H1471.
[27] For the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 hath purposed H3289 (8804), and who shall disannul H6565 (8686) [it]? and his hand H3027 [is] stretched out H5186 (8803), and who shall turn it back H7725 (8686)?
[28] In the year H8141 that king H4428 Ahaz H271 died H4194 was this burden H4853.
[29] Rejoice H8055 (8799) not thou, whole Palestina H6429, because the rod H7626 of him that smote H5221 (8688) thee is broken H7665 (8738): for out of the serpent’s H5175 root H8328 shall come forth H3318 (8799) a cockatrice H6848, and his fruit H6529 [shall be] a fiery H8314 flying H5774 (8789) serpent H8314.
[30] And the firstborn H1060 of the poor H1800 shall feed H7462 (8804), and the needy H34 shall lie down H7257 (8799) in safety H983: and I will kill H4191 (8689) thy root H8328 with famine H7458, and he shall slay H2026 (8799) thy remnant H7611.
[31] Howl H3213 (8685), O gate H8179; cry H2199 (8798), O city H5892; thou, whole Palestina H6429, [art] dissolved H4127 (8738): for there shall come H935 (8804) from the north H6828 a smoke H6227, and none [shall be] alone H909 (8802) in his appointed times H4151.
[32] What shall [one] then answer H6030 (8799) the messengers H4397 of the nation H1471? That the LORD H3068 hath founded H3245 (8765) Zion H6726, and the poor H6041 of his people H5971 shall trust H2620 (8799) in it.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 14 (YLT)

[1] Because Jehovah loveth Jacob, And hath fixed again on Israel, And given them rest on their own land, And joined hath been the sojourner to them, And they have been admitted to the house of Jacob.
[2] And peoples have taken them, And have brought them in unto their place, And the house of Israel have inherited them, On the land of Jehovah, For men-servants and for maid-servants, And they have been captors of their captors, And have ruled over their exactors.
[3] And it hath come to pass, In the day of Jehovah’s giving rest to thee, From thy grief, and from thy trouble, And from the sharp bondage, That hath been served upon thee,
[4] That thou hast taken up this simile Concerning the king of Babylon, and said, How hath the exactor ceased,
[5] Ceased hath the golden one. Broken hath Jehovah the staff of the wicked, The sceptre of rulers.
[6] He who is smiting peoples in wrath, A smiting without intermission, He who is ruling in anger nations, Pursuing without restraint!
[7] At rest-quiet hath been all the earth, They have broken forth into singing.
[8] Even firs have rejoiced over thee, Cedars of Lebanon-saying: Since thou hast lain down, The hewer cometh not up against us.
[9] Sheol beneath hath been troubled at thee, To meet thy coming in, It is waking up for thee Rephaim, All chiefs ones of earth, It hath raised up from their thrones All kings of nations.
[10] All of them answer and say unto thee, Even thou hast become weak like us! Unto us thou hast become like!
[11] Brought down to Sheol hath been thine excellency, The noise of thy psaltery, Under thee spread out hath been the worm, Yea, covering thee is the worm.
[12] How hast thou fallen from the heavens, O shining one, son of the dawn! Thou hast been cut down to earth, O weakener of nations.
[13] And thou saidst in thy heart: the heavens I go up, Above stars of God I raise my throne, And I sit in the mount of meeting in the sides of the north.
[14] I go up above the heights of a thick cloud, I am like to the Most High.
[15] Only-unto Sheol thou art brought down, Unto the sides of the pit.
[16] Thy beholders look to thee, to thee they attend, Is this the man causing the earth to tremble, Shaking kingdoms?
[17] He hath made the world as a wilderness, And his cities he hath broken down, Of his bound ones he opened not the house.
[18] All kings of nations-all of them, Have lain down in honour, each in his house,
[19] And-thou hast been cast out of thy grave, As an abominable branch, raiment of the slain, Thrust through ones of the sword, Going down unto the sons of the pit, As a carcase trodden down.
[20] Thou art not united with them in burial, For thy land thou hast destroyed, Thy people thou hast slain, Not named to the age is the seed of evil doers.
[21] Prepare ye for his sons slaughter; Because of the iniquity of their fathers, They rise not, nor have possessed the land, Nor filled the face of the world with cities.
[22] And I have risen up against them, (The affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts,) And have cut off, in reference to Babylon, Name and remnant, and continuator and successor, The affirmation of Jehovah.
[23] And have made it for a possession of a bittern, And ponds of waters, And daubed it with the mire of destruction, The affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts!
[24] Sworn hath Jehovah of Hosts, saying, ‘As I thought-so hath it not been? And as I counselled-it standeth;
[25] To break Asshur in My land, And on My mountains I tread him down, And turned from off them hath his yoke, Yea, his burden from off their shoulder turneth aside.
[26] This is the counsel that is counselled for all the earth, And this is the hand that is stretched out for all the nations.
[27] For Jehovah of Hosts hath purposed, And who doth make void? And His hand that is stretched out, Who doth turn it back?’
[28] In the year of the death of king Ahaz was this burden:
[29] Rejoice not thou, Philistia, all of thee, That broken hath been the rod of thy smiter, For from the root of a serpent cometh out a viper, And its fruit is a flying saraph.
[30] And delighted have the first-born of the poor, And the needy in confidence lie down, And I have put to death with famine thy root, And thy remnant it slayeth.
[31] Howl, O gate; cry, O city, Melted art thou, Philistia, all of thee, For from the north smoke hath come, And there is none alone in his set places.
[32] And what doth one answer the messengers of a nation? ‘ That Jehovah hath founded Zion, And in it do the poor of His people trust!’
