Isaiah 18:1-2 New English Translation (NET Bible)
The Lord Will Judge a Distant Land in the South
18 Beware, land of buzzing wings,
the one beyond the rivers of Cush,
2 that sends messengers by sea,
who glide over the water’s surface in boats made of papyrus.
Go, you swift messengers,
to a nation of tall, smooth-skinned people,
to a people that are feared far and wide,
to a nation strong and victorious,
whose land rivers divide.
