A Vision of a Woman in a Basket

5 Then the angel who was talking with me came forward. He said to me, "Look at what is coming." 6 "What is it?" I asked. "A measuring basket," he replied. "The sins of the people all through the land are in it." 7 Then the basket's cover was lifted up. It was made out of lead. A woman was sitting in the basket! 8 The angel said, "She stands for everything that is evil." Then he pushed her down into the basket. He put the lead cover back over its opening. 9 I looked up and saw two other women. They had wings like the wings of a stork. A wind sent by the LORD carried them along. They lifted the basket up between heaven and earth. 10 "Where are they taking the basket?" I asked the angel. 11 He replied, "To the country of Babylonia. A temple will be built for it. When the temple is ready, the basket will be set there in its place."
