Go to Commentary on Isa 18
 

 1 Ah, the land of the whirring wings

 that is beyond the rivers of Cush,

 

 2 that sends ambassadors by the sea,

 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!”

 

 3 All you inhabitants of the world

 and you dwellers on the earth,

 when a banner is lifted up on the mountains, look!

 When the shofar is blown, listen!

 

4For Yahweh said to me,

 “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.”

 

 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 cut down and take away the spreading branches.

 

 6 They will be left together for the ravenous birds of the mountains

 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.
