Isaiah 18

18
XVIII
1Ho! Thou land that makest a loud noise with thy wings,
Which is beyond the rivers of Cush;
2Which sendeth ambassadors along the sea,
And in vessels of papyrus on the face of the waters:
Go, ye swift messengers,
To a nation strong and formidable,
To a people terrible; and, from beyond them,
To a nation very strong and overpowering,
Whose lands the rivers tear up; and say:
3All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth,
When the standard is lifted up on the mountains, see ye;
And when the trumpet is sounded, hear!
4For thus hath Jehovah said unto me:
I will take my rest, and I will look on in my dwelling-place,
Like a clear heat in the sun-shine,
Like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
5For before the harvest, when the bud is perfect,
And the flower is become a ripening grape,
He shall cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks;
And the branches he shall remove away, he shall cut down.
6They shall be left together unto the rapacious bird of the mountains,
And to the wild beast of the earth:
And the rapacious bird shall summer upon them,
And every wild beast of the earth shall winter upon them.
7At that time shall a present be brought to Jehovah of hosts,
From a people strong and formidable,
And from a people terrible; and, from beyond them,
From a nation very strong and overpowering,
Whose lands the rivers tear up;
To the place of the name of Jehovah of hosts, the mount Zion.

Yeshayah (Isaiah) 18

18
1Woe to the land shadowed with whirring wings, which is beyond the rivers of Kush,
2which sends envoys by sea, even in vessels of reed on the waters, saying, “Go, swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth-skinned, to a people dreaded from their beginning onward, a nation mighty and trampling, whose land the rivers divide.”
3All inhabitants of the world, and you that dwell on the earth: When a banner is lifted up on the mountains, look! And when a shophar is blown, hear!
4For thus יהוה said to me, “I am still, and I watch in My dwelling place like dazzling heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”
5For before harvest, when the bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, then He shall cut off the twigs with pruning hooks, and shall cut down and take away the spreading branches.
6They are left together for the mountain birds of prey and for the beasts of the earth. And the birds of prey shall summer on them, and all the beasts of the earth winter on them.
7In that time a present shall be brought to יהוה of hosts from a people tall and smooth-skinned, and from a people awesome from their beginning onward – a nation mighty and trampling, whose land the rivers have divided – to the place of the Name of יהוה of hosts, to Mount Tsiyon.
