1Then again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, a flying scroll.
  2He said to me, “What do you see?” I answered, “I see a flying scroll; its length is 20 cubits and its width is ten cubits.”

3Then he said to me, “This is the curse that goes out over the surface of the whole land; for everyone who steals will be purged away according to one side of it, and everyone who swears falsely will be purged away according to the other side of it.
  4I will cause it to go out, says Yahweh of Armies, and it will enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him who swears falsely by my name; and it will remain in the middle of his house, and will destroy it along with its timber and its stones.”

5Then the angel who talked with me came forward and said to me, “Lift up now your eyes, and see what is this that is going out.”

6I said, “What is it?” He said, “This is the ephah basket that is going out.” He said moreover, “This is their appearance in all the land.”
  7And behold, a round lead cover was lifted up, and there was a woman sitting inside the ephah basket.
  8He said, “This is Wickedness,” and he threw her down into the middle of the ephah basket and thrust the weight of lead on its mouth.
  9Then lifted I up my eyes and saw, and behold, there were two women coming forward with the wind in their wings. And they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the ephah basket between earth and the heavens.

10Then I said to the angel who talked with me, “Where are these carrying the ephah basket?”

11He said to me, “To build her a house in the land of Shinar. When it is prepared, she will be set there in her own place.”
