Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And I turn back, and lift up mine eyes, and look, and lo, a flying roll. 1 I looked again--and there before me was a flying scroll!
2 And he saith unto me, `What art thou seeing?' And I say, `I am seeing a flying roll, its length twenty by the cubit, and its breadth ten by the cubit.' 2 He asked me, "What do you see?" I answered, "I see a flying scroll, thirty feet long and fifteen feet wide. "
3 And he saith unto me, `This [is] the execration that is going forth over the face of all the land, for every one who is stealing, on the one side, according to it, hath been declared innocent, and every one who hath sworn, on the other side, according to it, hath been declared innocent. 3 And he said to me, "This is the curse that is going out over the whole land; for according to what it says on one side, every thief will be banished, and according to what it says on the other, everyone who swears falsely will be banished.
4 `I have brought it out -- an affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts -- and it hath come in unto the house of the thief, and unto the house of him who hath sworn in My name to a falsehood, and it hath remained in the midst of his house, and hath consumed it, both its wood and its stones.' 4 The LORD Almighty declares, 'I will send it out, and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of him who swears falsely by my name. It will remain in his house and destroy it, both its timbers and its stones.' "
5 And the messenger who is speaking with me goeth forth, and saith unto me, `Lift up, I pray thee, thine eyes, and see what [is] this that is coming forth?' 5 Then the angel who was speaking to me came forward and said to me, "Look up and see what this is that is appearing."
6 And I say, `What [is] it?' And he saith, `This -- the ephah that is coming forth.' And he saith, `This [is] their aspect in all the land. 6 I asked, "What is it?" He replied, "It is a measuring basket." And he added, "This is the iniquity of the people throughout the land."
7 And lo, a cake of lead lifted up; and this [is] a woman sitting in the midst of the ephah.' 7 Then the cover of lead was raised, and there in the basket sat a woman!
8 And he saith, `This [is] the wicked woman.' And he casteth her unto the midst of the ephah, and casteth the weight of lead on its mouth. 8 He said, "This is wickedness," and he pushed her back into the basket and pushed the lead cover down over its mouth.
9 And I lift up mine eyes, and see, and lo, two women are coming forth, and wind in their wings; and they have wings like wings of the stork, and they lift up the ephah between the earth and the heavens. 9 Then I looked up--and there before me were two women, with the wind in their wings! They had wings like those of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between heaven and earth.
10 And I say unto the messenger who is speaking with me, `Whither [are] they causing the ephah to go?' 10 "Where are they taking the basket?" I asked the angel who was speaking to me.
11 And he saith unto me, `To build to it a house in the land of Shinar.' And it hath been prepared and hath been placed there on its base. 11 He replied, "To the country of Babylonia to build a house for it. When it is ready, the basket will be set there in its place."
