The book of the prophet Isaiah, chapter 18, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 18


   1 Vae terrae alarum strepitantium, quae est trans flumina Aethiopiae!
   2 Quae mittit in mari legatos et in vasis papyri super aquas: "Ite, nuntii veloces, ad gentem proceram et lucidam, ad populum terribilem, prope et procul, gentem robustam et conculcantem, cuius flumina scindunt terram".
   3 Omnes habitatores orbis et in terra commorantes, cum elevatum fuerit signum in montibus, videbitis et, cum clanguerit tuba, audietis.
   4 Quia haec dixit Dominus ad me: "Quiescam et considerabo in loco meo, sicut calor torrens orta iam luce et sicut nubes roris in aestu messis".
   5 Etenim ante vindemiam, cum consummatus fuerit flos, et uva germinans maturescens erit, praecidet ramusculos falcibus et propagines abscindet et proiciet;
   6 et relinquentur simul avibus montium et bestiis terrae; et aestate erunt super ea volucres, et omnes bestiae terrae super illa hiemabunt.
   7 In tempore illo deferetur munus Domino exercituum a populo procero et lucido, a populo terribili, prope et procul, a gente robusta et conculcante, cuius terram flumina scindunt, ad locum nominis Domini exercituum, montem Sion.

King James Version

   1 Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:
   2 That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
   3 All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.
   4 For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
   5 For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.
   6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.
   7 ¶ In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.
