Zechariah, Chapter 5

5:1 Then again I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and saw a flying roll.
5:2 And he said to me, What do you see? And I answered, I see a flying roll; its length is twenty cubits, and its width ten cubits.
5:3 Then he said to me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole land: for according to this side [of the scroll], everyone who steals will be emptied; and according to the other side, everyone who swears will be emptied.
5:4 I brought it out, says Yahweh of hosts, and it will enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him who swears falsely by my name; and it will reside in the midst of his house, and will consume it with its timber and its stones.
5:5 Then the angel who talked with me went forth, and said to me, Lift up now your eyes, and see what this is that goes forth.
5:6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is the ephah that goes forth. He said moreover, This is their desire in all the land
5:7 (and, look, there was lifted up a talent of lead); and this is a woman sitting in the midst of the ephah.
5:8 And he said, This is Wickedness: and he cast her down into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead on its mouth.
5:9 Then I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and saw there came forth two women, and the wind was in their wings; now they had wings like the wings of a stork; and they lifted up the ephah between earth and heaven.
5:10 Then I said to the angel who talked with me, Where do these bear the ephah?
5:11 And he said to me, To build her a house in the land of Shinar: and when it is prepared, she will be set there in her own place.
