Isaiah 18:1
Context
A Message to Ethiopia

1Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: 2That sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes on the waters, saying, Go, you swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning till now; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled! 3All you inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see you, when he lifts up an ensign on the mountains; and when he blows a trumpet, hear you. 4For so the LORD said to me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat on herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. 5For before 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. 6They shall be left together to the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer on them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter on them. 7In that time shall the present be brought to the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning till now; 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.

Treasury of Scripture

Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:

A.M. cir.

3290. B.C. cir

714.
woe. Bp. Lowth renders, after Bochart, 'Ho! to the land of the winged cymbal;' which he thinks is a periphrasis for the Egyptian sistrum; and consequently, that Egypt, 'which borders on the rivers of Cush,' is the country to which the prophecy is addressed. If we translate 'shadowing with wings,' it may allude to the multitude of its vessels, whose sails may be represented under the notion of wings.
