A Vision of Horns and Craftsmen

18 [a] And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, (A)four horns! 19 And I said to (B)the angel who talked with me, “What are these?” And he said to me, (C)“These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.” 20 Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen. 21 And I said, “What are these coming to do?” He said, (D)“These are the horns that scattered Judah, so that no one raised his head. And these have come (E)to terrify them, to cast down the horns of the nations (F)who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter it.”

A Vision of a Woman in a Basket

(A)Then the angel who talked with me came forward and said to me, (B)“Lift your eyes and see what this is that is going out.” And I said, “What is it?” He said, “This is (C)the basket[a] that is going out.” And he said, “This is their iniquity[b] in all the land.” And behold, the leaden cover was lifted, and there was a woman sitting in the basket! And he said, “This is Wickedness.” And he thrust her back into the basket, and thrust down (D)the leaden weight on its opening.

Then I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, two women coming forward! (E)The wind was in their wings. They had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. 10 Then I said to the angel who talked with me, “Where are they taking the basket?” 11 He said to me, “To the (F)land of Shinar, to build a house for it. And when this is prepared, they will set the basket down there on its base.”
