        It sends messengers by sea
            in boats made of reeds
                skimming over the surface of the water.
        Go, swift messengers, to a tall and smooth-skinned people,

            a strong and aggressive nation,
                whose land is divided by rivers.

Listen when someone blows a ram’s horn,

    My presence will be like scorching heat in the sunshine,
        like heavy dew in the heat of the harvest.
