Vision of the Flying Scroll
1Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying ⚓scroll.
2And 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.”
3Then he said to me, “This is the ⚓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 ⚓thief
And the house of ⚓the one who swears falsely by My name.
It shall remain in the midst of his house
And consume ⚓it, with its timber and stones.”
Vision of the Woman in a Basket
5Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, “Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth.”
6So I asked, “What is it?” And he said, “It is a basket that is going forth.”
He also said, “This is their resemblance throughout the earth:
7Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket”;
8then he said, “This is Wickedness!” And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth.
9Then 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 ⚓stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven.
10So I said to the ⚓angel who talked with me, “Where are they carrying the basket?”
11And he said to me, “To ⚓build a house for it in ⚓the land of Shinar; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base.”
