Then the angel speaking with me went forward and said to me, "Now raise your eyes, and see what this thing is, passing by."
I asked, "What is it?" He said, "This is the eifah-measure [a one-bushel dry-measure] passing by." Then he added, "This is their eye in all the land."
Next I saw a lead disc lifted up to reveal a woman sitting in the eifah.
He said, "This is Evil." He threw her down into the eifah and pressed the lead weight over its opening.
I raised my eyes and saw two women coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like those of a stork. They lifted the eifah up between the earth and the sky.
I asked the angel speaking with me, "Where are they taking the eifah?"
He answered me, "To build it a shrine in the land of Shin'ar. When it's ready, [the eifah] will be set down there on its base."
