Ang Palanan-awon Parte sa Linukot nga Kasulatan nga Nagalupad

Nakita ko pa gid ang linukot nga kasulatan nga nagalupad. Nagpamangkot ang anghel sa akon, “Ano ang nakita mo?” Nagsabat ako, “Nakita ko ang linukot nga kasulatan nga nagalupad, nga may kalabaon nga mga 30 ka tapak kag may kasangkaron nga mga 15 ka tapak.”

Dayon nagsiling ang anghel sa akon, “Nasulat sa sini nga kasulatan ang pagpakamalaot nga magaabot sa bug-os nga duta sang Israel. Sa pihak sang kasulatan nagasiling nga ang tagsa ka makawat pagadulaon sa Israel, kag sa pihak naman nagasiling nga ang kada isa nga nagasumpa sing butig pagadulaon man. Nagasiling ang Ginoo nga Makagagahom, ‘Ipadala ko ini nga pagpakamalaot kag magasulod ini sa balay sang makawat kag sa balay sang nagasumpa sing butig sa akon ngalan. Magapabilin ini sa ila mga balay hasta nga magkalaguba ina.’ ”

Ang Palanan-awon Parte sa Babayi nga sa Sulod sang Kaing

Nagpakita liwat ang anghel nga nagpakigsugilanon sa akon kag nagsiling, “Tan-awa bala kon ano inang nagapadulong.” Nagpamangkot ako, “Ano ina?” Nagsabat siya, “Kaing.” Kag nagsiling pa gid siya, “Nagakahulugan ina sang sala[a] sang mga tawo sa bug-os nga duta sang Israel.”

Ang kaing may takop nga tingga. Kag sang pag-alsa sang takop, nakita ko nga may babayi nga nagapungko sa sulod sang kaing. Nagsiling ang anghel, “Ina nga babayi nagarepresentar sang kalautan.” Kag ginduso niya ang babayi pabalik sa kaing kag ginsira dayon ang takop. Dayon nakita ko ang duha ka babayi nga nagalupad sing madasig, nga may malapad nga mga pakpak nga pareho sang iya ka dugwak.[b] Gin-alsa nila ang kaing kag gindala paibabaw. 10 Nagpamangkot ako sa anghel nga nagapakigsugilanon sa akon, “Diin nila dal-on ang kaing?” 11 Nagsabat siya, “Sa Babilonia,[c] nga sa diin pagahimuan ang kaing sang templo. Kag kon matapos na ang templo, ibutang ini didto sa iya tulungtungan agod simbahon.


  1. 5:6 sala: Amo ini sa Septuagint kag sa Syriac. Sa Hebreo, mata.
  2. 5:9 dugwak: sa English, stork.
  3. 5:11 Babilonia: sa Hebreo, Shinar.

The Flying Scroll

I looked again, and there before me was a flying scroll.(A)

He asked me, “What do you see?”(B)

I answered, “I see a flying scroll, twenty cubits long and ten cubits wide.[a]

And he said to me, “This is the curse(C) that is going out over the whole land; for according to what it says on one side, every thief(D) will be banished, and according to what it says on the other, everyone who swears falsely(E) will be banished. The Lord Almighty declares, ‘I will send it out, and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of anyone who swears falsely(F) by my name. It will remain in that house and destroy it completely, both its timbers and its stones.(G)’”

The Woman in a Basket

Then the angel who was speaking to me came forward and said to me, “Look up and see what is appearing.”

I asked, “What is it?”

He replied, “It is a basket.(H)” And he added, “This is the iniquity[b] of the people throughout the land.”

Then the cover of lead was raised, and there in the basket sat a woman! He said, “This is wickedness,” and he pushed her back into the basket and pushed its lead cover down on it.(I)

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,(J) and they lifted up the basket between heaven and earth.

10 “Where are they taking the basket?” I asked the angel who was speaking to me.

11 He replied, “To the country of Babylonia[c](K) to build a house(L) for it. When the house is ready, the basket will be set there in its place.”(M)


  1. Zechariah 5:2 That is, about 30 feet long and 15 feet wide or about 9 meters long and 4.5 meters wide
  2. Zechariah 5:6 Or appearance
  3. Zechariah 5:11 Hebrew Shinar

Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.

And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.

Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.

I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.

Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.

And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.

And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.

And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.

Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.

10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?

11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.
