Zechariah, CHAPTER 5
Fifth Vision: The Flying Scroll.
Then I raised my eyes again and saw a flying scroll.
He asked me, “What do you see?” I answered, “I see a flying scroll, twenty cubits long and ten cubits wide.”
Then he said to me: “This is the curse which is to go forth over the whole land. According to it, every thief and every perjurer will be expelled.
I will send it forth―oracle of the LORD of hosts―so that it will come to the house of the thief, and into the house of the one who swears falsely by my name. It shall lodge within each house, consuming it, timber and stones.”
Sixth Vision: The Basket of Wickedness.
Then the angel who spoke with me came forward and said to me, “Raise your eyes and look. What is this that comes forth?”
I said, “What is it?” And he answered, “This is the basket that is coming.” And he said, “This is their guilt in all the land.”
Then a leaden cover was lifted, and there was a woman sitting inside the basket.
He said, “This is Wickedness,” and he thrust her inside the basket, pushing the leaden weight into the opening.
Then I raised my eyes and saw two women coming forth with wind under their wings―they had wings like the wings of a stork―and they lifted the basket into the air.
I said to the angel who spoke with me, “Where are they taking the basket?”
He replied, “To build a temple for it in the land of Shinar. When the temple is constructed, they will set it there on its base.”
