Zechariah 5

A Vision of a Flying Scroll

1 Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying a scroll. 2 And he said to me, "What do you see?" So I answered, "I see a flying scroll. Its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits." 3 Then he said to me, "This is the b curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: 'Every thief shall be expelled,' according to this side of the scroll; and, 'Every perjurer shall be expelled,' according to that side of it." 4 "I will send out the curse," says the LORD of hosts;
"It shall enter the house of the c thief
And the house of d the one who swears falsely by My name.
It shall remain in the midst of his house
And consume e it, with its timber and stones."

A Vision of a Woman in a Basket

5 Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, "Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth." 6 So I asked, "What is it?" And he said, "It is a 1 basket 2 that is going forth." He also said, "This is their resemblance throughout the earth: 7 "Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket"; 8 then he said, "This is Wickedness!" And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead 3 cover over its mouth.

9 Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a f stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. 10 So I said to the g angel who talked with me, "Where are they carrying the basket?" 11 And he said to me, "To h build a house for it in i the land of 4 Shinar; 5 when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base."
