Sixth Vision: The Flying Scroll

Again I looked up and saw a flying scroll. And he said to me, ‘What do you see?’ I answered, ‘I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits, and its width ten cubits.’ Then he said to me, ‘This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole land; for everyone who steals shall be cut off according to the writing on one side, and everyone who swears falsely[a] shall be cut off according to the writing on the other side. I have sent it out, says the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter the house of the thief, and the house of anyone who swears falsely by my name; and it shall abide in that house and consume it, both timber and stones.’

Seventh Vision: The Woman in a Basket

Then the angel who talked with me came forward and said to me, ‘Look up and see what this is that is coming out.’ I said, ‘What is it?’ He said, ‘This is a basket[b] coming out.’ And he said, ‘This is their iniquity[c] in all the land.’ Then a leaden cover was lifted, and there was a woman sitting in the basket![d] And he said, ‘This is Wickedness.’ So he thrust her back into the basket,[e] and pressed the leaden weight down on its mouth. Then I looked up and saw two women coming forward. The wind was in their wings; they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket[f] between earth and sky. 10 Then I said to the angel who talked with me, ‘Where are they taking the basket?’[g] 11 He said to me, ‘To the land of Shinar, to build a house for it; and when this is prepared, they will set the basket[h] down there on its base.’
