Isaiah 18:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

A Prophecy regarding Cush

18 Ah, the land of whirring wings,[a]

    that is beyond the rivers of Cush,[b]
sending their messengers by the way of the Nile
    in papyrus vessels gliding on the water!
    Go, you swift messengers,
    to a tall, smooth-skinned people[c] feared far and wide,
    to a mighty conquering nation whose land the rivers divide.[d]
