Zechariah Sees a Flying Book

I looked up again and saw a flying book. And the angel said to me, “What do you see?” I said, “I see a flying book, as long as ten long steps and as wide as five long steps.” Then he said to me, “This is the curse that is going out over all the land. Everyone who steals will be cut off by what is written on one side. And everyone who swears will be cut off by what is written on the other side. I will send it out,” says the Lord of All, “and it will go into the house of the robber and the house of the one who makes false promises using My name. It will spend the night in that house and destroy it, both its wood and stones.”

Zechariah Sees a Woman in a Basket

Then the angel who was speaking with me came out and said to me, “Look up and see what this is that is going out.” And I said, “What is it?” He said, “This is the large basket going out.” And he said, “This is the sin of all the people in all the land.” Then the lead cover was lifted up, and there was a woman sitting in the large basket. The angel said, “This is Sin!” And he threw her back into the basket and threw the lead weight on its opening. Then I looked up and saw two women coming out with the wind in their wings. They had wings like the wings of a stork. And they lifted up the large basket between earth and heaven. 10 I said to the angel who was speaking with me, “Where are they taking the basket?” 11 He said to me, “To build a house for it in the land of Shinar. When it is ready, it will be put in its place.”
