Isaiah 18Names of God Bible (NOG)

Sudan Will Be Punished

18 How horrible it will be for the land of whirring wings
    which lies beyond the rivers of Sudan.
        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 people who are feared far and near,
            a strong and aggressive nation,
                whose land is divided by rivers.
Look when someone raises a flag on the mountains.
    Listen when someone blows a ram’s horn,
        all you inhabitants of the world who live on the earth.

This is what Yahweh says to me:

I will keep quiet and watch from my dwelling place.
    My presence will be like scorching heat in the sunshine,
        like heavy dew in the heat of the harvest.
Before the harvest, when blossoms are gone
    and grapes are ripening from blossoms,
        he will cut off the shoots with pruning shears
            and chop off the spreading branches.
They will be left for the birds of prey on the mountains
    and the wild animals.
        The birds of prey will feed on them in the summer,
            and all the wild animals on earth
                will feed on them in the winter.
At that time gifts will be brought to Yahweh Tsebaoth
    from a tall and smooth-skinned people,
    a people who are feared far and near,
    a strong and aggressive nation,
        whose land is divided by rivers.
    They will be brought to Mount Zion,
    the place where the name of Yahweh Tsebaoth is.
