God in care of his people will destroy the Ethiopians.
Isaiah 18:1 Ho! thou land of the buzzing of wings,Which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: Isaiah 18:2 That sendeth, by the sea, ambassadors, Even in vessels of paper-reed, upon the face of the waters,Go, ye swift messengers, Unto a nation drawn out and polished, Unto a people terrible from their beginning and onwards,A nation most mighty and subduing, Whose land rivers, have cut through. Isaiah 18:3 All ye inhabitants of the world, And ye, that dwell in the earth,When there is lifted up an ensign on the mountains, Ye shall look, And, when there is blown a horn, Ye shall hearken. Isaiah 18:4 For, thus, said Yahweh unto me,I must be quiet, I must look on in my fixed place of abode,Like a bright heat, on the light, Like a cloud of dew, in the heat of harvest. Isaiah 18:5 For, before harvest, when the bud is perfect, And, the blossom, becometh, a ripening grape, Then will one cut down the twigs with pruning-hooks, And, the tendrils, will he remove [and] cast down: Isaiah 18:6 They shall be left together, To the, ravenous birds, of the mountains, And to the beast of the earth,Then shall the ravenous bird, summer upon them, And, every beast of the earth, upon them, shall winter.
An access thereby shall grow unto the Church.
Isaiah 18:7 In that time, shall there be borne along, As a present unto Yahweh of hosts, A people drawn out and polished, Even from a people terrible from their beginning and onwards,A nation most mighty and subduing, Whose land rivers, have cut through, Unto the place of the Name of Yahweh of hosts. Mount Zion.
