5:2 He said to me,“What do you see?”I answered,“I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits, and its breadth ten cubits.”
5:3 Then he said to me,“This is the curse that goes out over the surface of the whole land; for everyone who steals shall be cut off according to it on the one side; and everyone who swears falsely shall be cut off according to it on the other side.says Yahweh of Armies,

5:7 (and behold, a talent of lead was lifted up); and this is a woman sitting in the midst of the ephah basket.”

5:9 Then lifted I up my eyes, and saw, and behold, there were two women, and the wind was in their wings. Now they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the ephah basket between earth and the sky.

5:11 He said to me,“To build her a house in the land of Shinar. When it is prepared, she will be set there in her own place.”
