Book of Isaiah
Chapter 18 - King James Version
1Woe to the land shadowed with buzzing
wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia,
2 Which sends
ambassadors by sea, Even in vessels of reed on the waters,
saying, "Go, swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth
of skin, To a people terrible from their beginning onward,
A nation powerful and treading down, whose land the rivers
3 All inhabitants of the world and dwellers
on the earth: When he lifts up a banner on the mountains, you
it; And when he blows a trumpet, you hear it.
4 For so
the Lord said to me, "I will take My rest, and I will look
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 bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening
He will both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks
and take away and cut down the branches.
6 They will be left
together for the mountain birds of prey and for the beasts
earth; The birds of prey will summer on them, and all
the earth will winter on them.
7 In that time a present
will be brought to the Lord of hosts from a people
tall and smooth
of skin, and from a people terrible from their
beginning onward, A nation powerful and treading down, whose
land the rivers
divide-to the place of the name of the Lord of
To mount Zion.
