even in vessels of papyrus on the waters, saying,
“Go, you swift messengers,
to a nation tall and smooth,
to a people awesome from their beginning onward,
a nation that measures out and treads down,
whose land the rivers divide!”
“I will be still, and I will see in my dwelling place
like clear heat in sunshine,
like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”
and the flower becomes a ripening grape,
he will cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks,
and he will cut down and take away the spreading branches.
and for the animals of the earth.
The ravenous birds will summer on them,
and all the animals of the earth will winter on them.
7In that time, a present will be brought to Yahweh of Armies from a people tall and smooth, even from a people awesome from their beginning onward, a nation that measures out and treads down, whose land the rivers divide, to the place of the name of Yahweh of Armies, Mount Zion.
