A Message about Ethiopia

18Listen, Ethiopia—land of fluttering sails that lies at the headwaters of the Nile,H1945H776H6767H3671H5676H5104H3568 2that sends ambassadors in swift boats down the river. Go, swift messengers! Take a message to a tall, smooth-skinned people, who are feared far and wide for their conquests and destruction, and whose land is divided by rivers.H7971H6735H3220H3627H1573H6440H4325H3212H7031H4397H1471H4900H4178H5971H3372H1973H1471H6978H4001H776H5104H958 3All you people of the world, everyone who lives on the earth—when I raise my battle flag on the mountain, look! When I blow the ram’s horn, listen!H3427H8398H7931H776H7200H5375H5251H2022H8628H7782H8085 4For the Lord has told me this. “I will watch quietly from my dwelling place—as quietly as the heat rises on a summer day, or as the morning dew forms during the harvest.”H3541H3068H559H8252H5027H4349H6703H2527H216H5645H2919H2527H7105 5Even before you begin your attack, while your plans are ripening like grapes, the Lord will cut off your new growth with pruning shears. He will snip off and discard your spreading branches.H6440H7105H6525H8552H1155H1580H5328H3772H2150H4211H5493H8456H5189 6Your mighty army will be left dead in the fields for the mountain vultures and wild animals. The vultures will tear at the corpses all summer. The wild animals will gnaw at the bones all winter.H5800H3162H5861H2022H929H776H5861H6972H929H776H2778 7At that time the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will receive gifts from this land divided by rivers, from this tall, smooth-skinned people, who are feared far and wide for their conquests and destruction. They will bring the gifts to Jerusalem, where the Lord of Heaven’s Armies dwells.H6256H7862H2986H3068H6635H5971H4900H4178H5971H3372H1973H1471H6978H4001H776H5104H958H4725H8034H3068H6635H2022H6726
