The Flying Scroll

1 Then I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, there was a flying ascroll.

2 And he said to me, “aWhat do you see?” And I answered, “I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty 1cubits and its width ten cubits.”

3 Then he said to me, “This is the acurse that is going forth over the face of the whole 1land; surely everyone who bsteals will be purged away according to 2the writing on one side, and everyone who cswears will be purged away according to 2the writing on the other side.

4 “I will amake it go forth,” declares the Lord of hosts, “and it will benter the house of the cthief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name; and it will spend the night within that house and dconsume it with its timber and stones.”

5 Then athe angel who was speaking with me went out and said to me, “Lift up now your eyes and see what this is going forth.”

6 I said, “What is it?” And he said, “This is the 1aephah going forth.” Again he said, “This is their 2appearance in all the 3land

7 (and behold, a lead cover was lifted up); and this is a woman sitting inside the ephah.”

8 Then he said, “This is aWickedness!” And he threw her down into the middle of the ephah and cast the lead weight on its 1opening.

9 Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and there two women were coming out with the wind in their wings; and they had wings like the wings of a astork, and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens.

10 I said to the angel who was speaking with me, “Where are they taking the ephah?”

11 Then he said to me, “To build a 1temple for her in the land of aShinar; and when it is prepared, she will be set there on her own pedestal.”

The Four Chariots

1 Now I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, afour chariots were coming forth from between the two mountains; and the mountains were bronze mountains.

2 With the first chariot were ared horses, with the second chariot bblack horses,

3 with the third chariot awhite horses, and with the fourth chariot strong bdappled horses.

4 Then I spoke and said to the angel who was speaking with me, “aWhat are these, my lord?”

5 The angel replied to me, “These are the afour spirits of heaven, going forth after standing before the Lord of all the earth,

6 with one of which the black horses are going forth to the anorth country; and the white ones go forth after them, while the dappled ones go forth to the bsouth country.

7 “When the strong ones went out, they 1were eager to go to 2apatrol the earth.” And He said, “Go, 2patrol the earth.” So they 3patrolled the earth.

8 Then He cried out to me and spoke to me saying, “See, those who are going to the land of the north have 1aappeased My wrath in the land of the north.”
