Then 1the angel who was speaking with me went out and said to me, "Lift up now your eyes and seewhatthis is goingforth."
I said, "What is it?" And he said, "This is the a2ephahgoingforth." Again he said, "This is their bappearance in all the cland7
(and behold, a leadcover was lifted up); and this is a womansittinginside the ephah."
Then he said, "This is 3Wickedness!" And he threw her down into the middle of the ephah and cast the leadweight on its dopening.
Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and there twowomen were coming out with the wind in their wings; and they had wings like the wings of a 4stork, and they lifted up the ephahbetween the earth and the heavens.
I said to the angel who was speaking with me, "Where are they taking the ephah?"
Then he said to me, "To build a etemple for her in the land of 5Shinar; and when it is prepared, she will be setthere on her own pedestal."
