Isaiah 18

    An Oracle concerning Ethiopia

  1. "Ah, land of whirring wingswhich is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia;"
  2. "which sends ambassadors by the Nile,in vessels of papyrus upon the waters!Go, you swift messengers,to a nation, tall and smooth,to a people feared near and far,a nation mighty and conquering,whose land the rivers divide."
  3. "All you inhabitants of the world,you who dwell on the earth,when a signal is raised on the mountains, look!When a trumpet is blown, hear!"
