The Rebellion of Satan in the Hebrew Bible

Two Old Testament texts (Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:11-19) could be a description of Satan’s rebellion. In the Life of Adam and Eve (the original Hebrew probably dates from the first century bc or ad), the fall of the Day Star is interpreted as the fall of Satan and his angels (Life of Adam 12–15; see 2 Enoch 29:4–5). Angels were often compared to stars (Judges 5:20; Job 38:7; 1 Enoch 104:1; Testament of Moses 10:9). According to this tradition, Satan belonged to the first creatures cast out of heaven by God.
