Isaiah 18:2-4 New Century Version (NCV)

That land sends messengers across the sea;
    they go on the water in boats made of reeds.

Go, quick messengers,
    to a people who are tall and smooth-skinned,
    who are feared everywhere.
They are a powerful nation that defeats other nations.
    Their land is divided by rivers.

All you people of the world, look!
    Everyone who lives in the world, look!
You will see a banner raised on a mountain.
    You will hear a trumpet sound.
The Lord said to me,
    “I will quietly watch from where I live,
like heat in the sunshine,
    like the dew in the heat of harvest time.”

Isaiah 18:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

which sends envoys by sea
    in papyrus boats over the water.

Go, swift messengers,
to a people tall and smooth-skinned,
    to a people feared far and wide,
an aggressive nation of strange speech,
    whose land is divided by rivers.

All you people of the world,
    you who live on the earth,
when a banner is raised on the mountains,
    you will see it,
and when a trumpet sounds,
    you will hear it.
This is what the Lord says to me:
    “I will remain quiet and will look on from my dwelling place,
like shimmering heat in the sunshine,
    like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”
