  • I'm GUESSING that you're referring to the Tower of Babel. The quote is quite different from what you remember, as is the story itself. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=gen+11%3A1-9&version=NASB1995;NRSV There is no other Biblical story that is more similar to what you describe. The "become like him" and "kicking out" portions are found in a different story, the story of Adam and Eve. They were kicked out of paradise...but not out of Heaven. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=gen+3&version=NASB1995;NRSV

      Isaiah 14:13 it was Lucifer here is the scriptureFor you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north.

      A - That's not Lucifer speaking. It's a mockery of the thoughts of a particular King of Babylon. The LATIN word "lucifer" is a misrepresentation (in an English translation of a Hebrew text). That is: in an English translation, the word should be translated into English, not Latin! It should be rendered "Morning Star" or something similar in English. B - Nothing about "let us (plural) go up to Heaven" as in the Tower of Babel story. Still: I did not think about that passage in relation to this question, and it does also bear a slight similarity to the question-asker's account...but not as much as The Tower of Babel or The Fall of Adam and Eve.

      I hate to kill your puppy read the scripture so many people have something to say and they never bother to read the Bible just read the scripture Lucifer Lucifer oh how you have fallen you were perfect in all your ways when I created you but now iniquity has been found in you for you have said let us go on up to the heavens where we will make our home with the gods. Read your Bible friend don't make up stories read the Bible

      Exactly. The author clearly identifies the subject of that passage...and it isn't Satan, and it isn't Lucifer in any scholarly English translation of the Bible, and even in English translations of the Bible that do (unjustifiably) use "Lucifer", the author clearly identifies who that "Lucifer" is...and it's not Satan.
