Woe to the land shadowing with wings,
is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia.
That sends ambassadors by the sea,
in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying,
you swift messengers,
a nation scattered and peeled,
a people terrible from their beginning hitherto.
nation meted out and trodden down,
land the rivers have spoiled
All you inhabitants of the world,
dwellers on the earth, see you,
he lifts up an ensign on the mountains;
when he blows a trumpet, hear you."
For so Jehovah/God said unto me,
will take My rest,
I will consider in My dwelling place
a clear heat upon herbs,
like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest."
For afore the harvest,
the bud is perfect,
the sour grape is ripening in the flower,
shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks,
take away and cut down the branches.
They shall be left together
the fowls of the mountains,
to the animals/beasts of the earth.
the fowls shall summer upon them,
all the animals/beasts of the earth
winter upon them.
In that time
the present be brought
Jehovah/God of the armies/hosts
a people scattered and peeled,
from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto.
nation meted out and trodden under foot,
land the rivers have spoiled,
the place of the name
Jehovah/God of the armies/hosts,
