Zechariah 5:5-11

NLT 5 Then the angel who was talking with me came forward and said, "Look up! Something is appearing in the sky." NIV 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." NLT 6 "What is it?" I asked. He replied, "It is a basket for measuring grain, and it is filled with the sins of everyone throughout the land." NIV 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." NLT 7 When the heavy lead cover was lifted off the basket, there was a woman sitting inside it. NIV 7 Then the cover of lead was raised, and there in the basket sat a woman! NLT 8 The angel said, "The woman's name is Wickedness," and he pushed her back into the basket and closed the heavy lid again. NIV 8 He said, "This is wickedness," and he pushed her back into the basket and pushed the lead cover down over its mouth. NLT 9 Then I looked up and saw two women flying toward us, with wings gliding on the wind. Their wings were like those of a stork, and they picked up the basket and flew with it into the sky. NIV 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. NLT 10 "Where are they taking the basket?" I asked the angel. NIV 10 "Where are they taking the basket?" I asked the angel who was speaking to me. NLT 11 He replied, "To the land of Babylonia, where they will build a temple for the basket. And when the temple is ready, they will set the basket there on its pedestal." NIV 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."
