Isaiah 18

MLV(i) 1 Ah, the land of the rustling of wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, 2 that sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of papyrus upon the waters, saying, You* go swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth, to a people fearful from their beginning onward, a nation mighty and trampled down, whose land the rivers divide!
3 All you* inhabitants of the world and you* dwellers on the earth, when an ensign is lifted up on the mountains, see you* and when the trumpet is blown, hear you*.
4 For thus Jehovah has said to me, I will be still and I will behold in my dwelling-place, like clear heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. 5 For before the harvest, when the blossom is over and the flower becomes a ripening grape, he will cut off the sprigs with pruning-hooks and he will take away and cut down the spreading branches. 6 They will be left together to the ravenous birds of the mountains and to the beasts of the earth. And the ravenous birds will summer upon them and all the beasts of the earth will winter upon them.
7 In that time a present will be brought to Jehovah of hosts from a people tall and smooth, even from a people fearful from their beginning onward, a nation mighty and tramples down, whose land the rivers divide, to the place of the name of Jehovah of hosts, the Mount Zion.
