The sixth vision
1 Again I raised my eyes and saw a flying scroll. 2 He asked me, “What do you see?” And I answered, “A flying scroll, thirty feet long and fifteen feet wide.”
3 He said to me, “This is the curse going forth throughout the earth. On one side it is written that every thief shall be banished; on the other side, that everyone who swears falsely shall be expelled. 4 I will send it out to the house of the thief, as well as to the house of anyone who swears falsely. It will lodge there and destroy the house – timber, stone and everything.
The seventh vision
5 Then the angel who talked with me came forward and said, “Look up and see what this is that is coming forth.” 6 I asked, “What is it?” He answered, “This is a bushel container. This is the guilt of the people throughout the land.” 7 The lead cover was lifted, and there sitting inside was a wo man. 8 “This is wickedness,” he said and thrust the woman inside the bushel stopping the opening with the lead cover.
9 I looked up and saw two winged women coming; their wings were like that of a stork. As they lifted the bushel into the air, 10 I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “Where are they taking the bushel?” 11 He answered, “To Baby lonia, to build a temple for it and set it down on a plinth.”
