5:1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and
looked, and behold a flying roll.
5:2 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.
5:3 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.
5:4 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.

unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that
5:6 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.
5:7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and
this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.
5:8 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.
5:9 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.
5:10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither
do these bear the ephah?
5:11 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.
