Rev 12:9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of
old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives
the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were
cast out with him. NKJV
Isa 14:9 The denizens of hell crowd to meet you as
you enter their domain. World leaders and earth's mightiest kings, long dead,
are there to see you. 10 With one voice they all cry out, "Now you are as
weak as we are!" 11 Your might and power are gone; they are buried with you.
All the pleasant music in your palace has ceased; now maggots are your sheet,
worms your blanket!
12* How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer,
son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground-mighty though you
were against the nations of the world. 13 For you said to yourself, "I will
ascend to heaven and rule the angels. I will take the highest throne. I will
preside on the Mount of Assembly far away in the north. 14 I will climb to
the highest heavens and be like the Most High." 15 But instead, you will
be brought down to the pit of hell, down to its lowest depths. 16 Everyone
there will stare at you and ask, "Can this be the one who shook the earth
and the kingdoms of the world? 17 Can this be the one who destroyed the world
and made it into a shambles, who demolished its greatest cities and had no
mercy on his prisoners?"
18 The kings of the nations lie in stately glory in their graves, 19 but
your body is thrown out like a broken branch; it lies in an open grave, covered
with the dead bodies of those slain in battle. It lies as a carcass in the
road, trampled and mangled by horses' hoofs. 20 No monument will be given
you, for you have destroyed your nation and slain your people. Your son will
not succeed you as the king. 21 Slay the children of this sinner. Do not
let them rise and conquer the land nor rebuild the cities of the world.
