An Oracle Concerning Cush
18 Ah, land of owhirring wings
that is beyond the rivers of pCush,
2 which qsends ambassadors by the sea,
in vessels of papyrus on the waters!
Go, you swift messengers,
to a nation rtall and smooth,
to a people feared near and far,
a nation smighty and conquering,
whose land the rivers divide.
5 qThen they shall be dismayed and ashamed because of Cush their hope and of Egypt their boast.
