Message to Ethiopia

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 18:1 - Alas, oh land of whirring wings
Which lies beyond the rivers of [fn]Cush,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 18:2 - Which sends envoys by the sea,
Even in papyrus vessels on the surface of the waters.
Go, swift messengers, to a nation [fn]tall and smooth,
To a people feared [fn]far and wide,
A powerful and oppressive nation
Whose land the rivers divide.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 18:3 - All you inhabitants of the world and dwellers on earth,
As soon as a standard is raised on the mountains, you will see it,
And as soon as the trumpet is blown, you will hear it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 18:4 - For thus the LORD has told me,
“I will look [fn]from My dwelling place quietly
Like dazzling heat in the [fn]sunshine,
Like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 18:5 - For before the harvest, as soon as the bud [fn]blossoms
And the flower becomes a ripening grape,
Then He will cut off the sprigs with pruning knives
And remove and cut away the spreading branches.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 18:6 - They will be left together for mountain birds of prey,
And for the beasts of the earth;
And the birds of prey will spend the summer feeding on them,
And all the beasts of the earth will spend harvest time on them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 18:7 - At that time a gift of homage will be brought to the LORD of hosts
[fn]From a people [fn]tall and smooth,
Even from a people feared [fn]far and wide,
A powerful and oppressive nation,
Whose land the rivers divide—
To the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, even Mount Zion.
