A Vision of a Woman in a Basket

5 1Then 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."
6 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."
7 And behold, the leaden cover was lifted, and there was a woman sitting in the basket!
8 And he said, "This is Wickedness." And he thrust her back into the basket, and thrust down 4the leaden weight on its opening.
9 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.
10 Then I said to the angel who talked with me, "Where are they taking the basket?"
11 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."
