51Then the angel who talked with me came forward and said to me, 2"Lift your eyes and see what this is that is going out."
And I said, "What is it?" He said, "This is 3the basketa that is going out." And he said, "This is their iniquityb in all the land."
And behold, the leaden cover was lifted, and there was a woman sitting in the basket!
And he said, "This is Wickedness." And he thrust her back into the basket, and thrust down 4the leaden weight on its opening.
Then I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, two women coming forward! 5The wind was in their wings. They had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven.
Then I said to the angel who talked with me, "Where are they taking the basket?"
He said to me, "To the 6land of Shinar, to build a house for it. And when this is prepared, they will set the basket down there on its base."
