The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?
2 Kings 14:7
He, smote Edom, in the valley of salt, ten thousand, and seized Sela, in the war, - and called the name thereof Joktheel, as it is until this day.
2 Chronicles 25:12
and the sons of Judah took captive, ten thousand alive, and brought to the top of the crag, - and cast them down from the top of the crag, and, all of them, were torn asunder.
Yet, thou, didst say in thy heart - The heavens, will I ascend, Above the stars of GOD, will I lift up my throne, - That I may sit in the Mount of Assembly In the Recesses of the North:
And thou saidst, Unto times age-abiding, shall I be Mistress, - Insomuch that thou laidst not these things to thy heart, Didst not keep in mind the issue thereof,
Why shouldst thou glory in the vales, The flowing of thy vale O apostate daughter? She who is trusting in her treasures, saying, Who shall invade, me?
As much as she glorified herself, and waxed wanton, so much give, unto her, torment and grief: - because, in her heart, she saith - I sit a Queen, and, widow, am I not, and, grief, in nowise shall I see!
Before grievous injury, pride! and, before a fall, haughtiness of spirit!
