Isaiah 18:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
1 Ah! Land of buzzing insects,
beyond the rivers of Ethiopia,
2 Sending ambassadors by sea,
in papyrus boats on the waters!
Go, swift messengers,
to a nation tall and bronzed,
To a people dreaded near and far,
a nation strong and conquering,
whose land is washed by rivers.
