The Woman in a Basket

Zechariah 5: 5-11

 5 Then the angel who was speaking to me came forward and said to me, "Look up and see what this is that is appearing."

 6 I asked, "What is it?"
      He replied, "It is a measuring basket. " And he added, "This is the iniquity of the people throughout the land."

 7 Then the cover of lead was raised, and there in the basket sat a woman! 8 He said, "This is wickedness," and he pushed her back into the basket and pushed the lead cover down over its mouth.

 9 Then I looked up—and there before me were two women, with the wind in their wings! They had wings like those of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between heaven and earth.

 10 "Where are they taking the basket?" I asked the angel who was speaking to me.

 11 He replied, "To the country of Babylonia to build a house for it. When it is ready, the basket will be set there in its place."
