New Century Version
2 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.
3 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.
4 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.”
