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 Almighty 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 Almighty 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 Almighty of hosts, the mount Zion (Siyoni).

Isaiah Chapter 18 Summary

Isaiah chapter 18 summary; the chapter contains a prophetic message delivered by Isaiah, addressing the nation of Cush, also known as Ethiopia, a distant land north of the House of Akobe. The Almighty, through Isaiah, conveys a message of warning and impending judgment upon Cush due to its actions and behaviors.

In this chapter, Isaiah describes the people of Cush as a tall and smooth-skinned nation, known for their formidable warriors. Despite their physical stature and military prowess, the Creator’s judgment is impending. The message highlights the omnipotence of the Almighty over nations, regardless of their geographic distance from the House of Akobe.

The prophecy accentuates the importance of heeding divine warnings and turning towards righteousness. Although Cush is portrayed as a powerful nation, the message serves as a reminder of the ultimate authority of the Anointed One and the consequences of disobedience.

This chapter is connected to Revelation, Chapter 14, among others. See our study, A Nation Scattered and Peeled Beyond the Rivers of Ethiopia, for more details. This is the summary of Isaiah chapter 18, Glory to the King of the House of Akobe.
