Isaiah 18:1-2 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

Oracle of Judgment on Cush

18 Ah! land of the whirring of wings,
    which is beyond the rivers of Cush,
that sends messengers by the sea
    and in vessels of papyrus on the surface of the waters!
Go, swift messengers, to a tall[a] and smooth[b] nation,
    to a people feared near and far,[c]
a mighty, mighty[d] and trampling[e] nation,
    whose land rivers divide.
