And the angel who was talking to me went out and said to me, Let your eyes be lifted up now, and see the ephah which is going out.
And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah which is going out. And he said further, This is their evil-doing in all the land.
And I saw a round cover of lead lifted up; and a woman was seated in the middle of the ephah.
And he said, This is Sin; and pushing her down into the ephah, he put the weight of lead on the mouth of it.
And lifting up my eyes I saw two women coming out, and the wind was in their wings; and they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they took the ephah, lifting it up between earth and heaven.
And I said to the angel who was talking to me, Where are they taking the ephah?
And he said to me, To make a house for her in the land of Shinar: and they will make a place ready, and put her there in the place which is hers.
