18 *aWoe to the land shadowing bwith wings,

Which is beyond the rivers of cEthiopia:

dThat sendeth ambassadors by ethe sea,

Even in vessels of fbulrushes upon the waters, saying,

Go, ye gswift messengers,

To ha nation ||scattered and jpeeled,

hTo a people terrible kfrom their beginning hitherto;

||hA nation meted out and trodden down,

||hWhose land the rivers have spoiled!

All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth,

See ye, when he nlifteth up an ensign on the mountains;

And when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.

For so the Lord said unto me,

I will take my rest, and I will ||consider in omy dwelling place

Like a clear heat ||upon pherbs,

And like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.

For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect,

And qthe sour grape is ripening in qthe flower,

He shall both cut off the sprigs with rpruning hooks,

And take away and cut down sthe branches.

tThey shall be left together unto uthe fowls of the mountains,

And to the beasts of the earth:

And uthe fowls shall summer upon them,

And all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.

In that time vshall the present be brought unto the Lord of hosts

Of ha people ||scattered and peeled,

And from ha people terrible from their beginning hitherto;

hA nation meted out and trodden under foot,

hWhose land the rivers have spoiled,

To the place of the name of the Lord of hosts, the mount Zion.
