Zechariah’s Sixth Vision

1 {I looked up again},a and I saw, and look!--a flying scroll! 2 And he asked me, "What [are] you seeing?" And I said, "I [am] seeing a flying scroll twenty cubits long and ten cubits wide."b 3 And he said to me, "This [is] the curse going out over the surface of the whole earth. For everyone who steals has gone unpunishedc according to it, and [likewise] everyone who swears [falsely] has gone unpunished according to it. 4 'I have sent it out,' {declares}d Yahweh of hosts, 'and it will go into the house of the thief and into the house of the one swearing {falsely by my name},e and it will spend the night in thatf house and will destroy it, with its timber and its stone.'"

Zechariah’s Seventh Vision

5 And the angel who was speaking to me went out, and he said to me, "{Please look up}!g See what this [is] going out." 6 And I asked, "What [is] it?" And he said, "This [is] a basketh going out. And he said, "This [is] their iniquityi throughout all the earth. 7 And look, the lead cover was lifted and a woman [was] sitting inside the basket.j 8 And he said, "This [is] Wickedness!" And he thrust her [back down] into the basket,k and threw the lead cover on top of it.l 9 And I {looked up}m and saw, and look!--two women coming forward, and [the] wind [was] in their wings, and they had wings like those of a stork, and they lifted up the basketn between the earth and the sky.o 10 And I asked the angel who was talking to me, "Where [are] they taking the basket?"p 11 And he said to me, "To build for it a houseq in the land of Shinar,r and [when] it is put in place, it will be placed there on its site."
