Oracle Of Judgment On Cush

1 Woe to the land of whirring wings that is beyond the rivers of Cush, 2 which sends envoys by the sea, in papyrus boats over the water! Go, swift messengers, to a tall, smooth-skinned nation, to a people feared far and wide, a nation that metes out punishment and oppresses, whose land the rivers divide.
