Next, Isaiah talks about what will happen to Ethiopia, the land that sends ambassadors up the Nile in papyrus ships to transmit messages.
Isaiah tells swift messengers to go to Ethiopia, a land of people "tall and smooth." The Ethiopians are considered to be mighty rulers, controlling a wide kingdom.
Addressing everyone in the world, Isaiah says that God will appear like the heat on a sunny day or a cloud of dew during the harvest. He'll destroy the harvest, tossing the shoots and branches to the birds of prey and the animals of the earth.
After all that's happened, the Ethiopians will come and bring gifts to God at Mount Zion.
