Zechariah chapter 5

So I turned me, lifting up mine eyes, and looked, and behold, a flying book. And he said unto me: what seest thou? I answered: I see a flying book of twenty cubits long, and ten cubits broad. Then said he unto me: This is the curse, that goeth forth over the whole earth: for all thieves shall be judged after this book, and all swearers shall be judged according to the same, I will bring it forth (sayeth the LORD of Hosts) so that it shall come to the house of the thief, and to the house of him, that falsely sweareth by my name: and shall remain in his house, and consume it, with the timber and stones thereof.
Then the angel that talked with me, went forth, and said unto me: lift up thine eyes and see what this is that goeth forth. And I said: what is it? He answered: this is a measure going out. He said moreover: Even thus are they (that dwell upon the whole earth) to look upon. And behold, there was lift up a talent of lead: and lo, a woman sat in the middest of the measure. And he said: This is ungodliness. So he cast her into the middest of the measure, and threw the lump of lead up in to an whole. {or hole} Then lift 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 lift up the measure betwixt the earth and the heaven. Then spake I to the angel that talked with me: whither will these bear the measure? And he said unto me: in to the land of Sinear, to build them an house: which when it is prepared, the measure shall be set there in his place.
