Zechariah 5


Zechariah 5:1 Then I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, there was a flying scroll.
Zechariah 5:2 And he said to me," What do you see?" And I answered," I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits."
Zechariah 5:3 Then he said to me," This is the curse that is going forth over the face of the whole land; surely everyone who steals will be purged away according to the writing on one side, and everyone who swears will be purged away according to the writing on the other side.
Zechariah 5:4 I will make it go forth," declares the Lord of hosts,"and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name; and it will spend the night within that house and consume it with its timber and stones."
Zechariah 5:5 Then the angel who was speaking with me went out and said to me," Lift up now your eyes and see what this is going forth."
Zechariah 5:6 I said," What is it?" And he said," This is the ephah going forth." Again he said," This is their appearance in all the land
Zechariah 5:7 (and behold, a lead cover was lifted up); and this is a woman sitting inside the ephah."
Zechariah 5:8 Then he said," This is Wickedness!" And he threw her down into the middle of the ephah and cast the lead weight on its opening.
Zechariah 5:9 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 stork, and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens.
Zechariah 5:10 I said to the angel who was speaking with me," Where are they taking the ephah?"
Zechariah 5:11 Then he said to me," To build a temple for her in the land of Shinar; and when it is prepared, she will be set there on her own pedestal."

Zechariah 5:1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. Zechariah 5:1 Then I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, there was a flying scroll. Zechariah 5:1 καὶ ἐπέστρεψα καὶ ἦρα τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ δρέπανον πετόμενον
Zechariah 5:2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.

Zechariah 5:3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. Zechariah 5:3 Then he said to me," This is the curse that is going forth over the face of the whole land; surely everyone who steals will be purged away according to the writing on one side, and everyone who swears will be purged away according to the writing on the other side. Zechariah 5:3 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με αὕτη ἡ ἀρὰ ἡ ἐκπορευομένη ἐπὶ πρόσωπον πάσης τῆς γῆς διότι πᾶς ὁ κλέπτης ἐκ τούτου ἕως θανάτου ἐκδικηθήσεται καὶ πᾶς ὁ ἐπίορκος ἐκ τούτου ἕως θανάτου ἐκδικηθήσεται
Zechariah 5:4 I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof. Zechariah 5:4 I will make it go forth," declares the Lord of hosts,"and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name; and it will spend the night within that house and consume it with its timber and stones." Zechariah 5:4 καὶ ἐξοίσω αὐτό λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ κλέπτου καὶ εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ ὀμνύοντος τῷ ὀνόματί μου ἐπὶ ψεύδει καὶ καταλύσει ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ συντελέσει αὐτὸν καὶ τὰ ξύλα αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς λίθους αὐτοῦ
Zechariah 5:5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth. Zechariah 5:5 Then the angel who was speaking with me went out and said to me," Lift up now your eyes and see what this is going forth." Zechariah 5:5 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ ἄγγελος ὁ λαλῶν ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ εἶπεν πρός με ἀνάβλεψον τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ ἰδὲ τί τὸ ἐκπορευόμενον τοῦτο
Zechariah 5:6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth. Zechariah 5:6 I said," What is it?" And he said," This is the ephah going forth." Again he said," This is their appearance in all the land Zechariah 5:6 καὶ εἶπα τί ἐστιν καὶ εἶπεν τοῦτο τὸ μέτρον τὸ ἐκπορευόμενον καὶ εἶπεν αὕτη ἡ ἀδικία αὐτῶν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ
Zechariah 5:7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah. Zechariah 5:7 (and behold, a lead cover was lifted up); and this is a woman sitting inside the ephah." Zechariah 5:7 καὶ ἰδοὺ τάλαντον μολίβου ἐξαιρόμενον καὶ ἰδοὺ μία γυνὴ ἐκάθητο ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ μέτρου
Zechariah 5:8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof. Zechariah 5:8 Then he said," This is Wickedness!" And he threw her down into the middle of the ephah and cast the lead weight on its opening. Zechariah 5:8 καὶ εἶπεν αὕτη ἐστὶν ἡ ἀνομία καὶ ἔρριψεν αὐτὴν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ μέτρου καὶ ἔρριψεν τὸν λίθον τοῦ μολίβου εἰς τὸ στόμα αὐτῆς
Zechariah 5:9 Then lifted 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 lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. Zechariah 5:9 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 stork, and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens. Zechariah 5:9 καὶ ἦρα τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ δύο γυναῖκες ἐκπορευόμεναι καὶ πνεῦμα ἐν ταῖς πτέρυξιν αὐτῶν καὶ αὗται εἶχον πτέρυγας ὡς πτέρυγας ἔποπος καὶ ἀνέλαβον τὸ μέτρον ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ
Zechariah 5:10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah? Zechariah 5:10 I said to the angel who was speaking with me," Where are they taking the ephah?" Zechariah 5:10 καὶ εἶπα πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον τὸν λαλοῦντα ἐν ἐμοί ποῦ αὗται ἀποφέρουσιν τὸ μέτρον
Zechariah 5:11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base. Zechariah 5:11 Then he said to me," To build a temple for her in the land of Shinar; and when it is prepared, she will be set there on her own pedestal." Zechariah 5:11 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτῷ οἰκίαν ἐν γῇ Βαβυλῶνος καὶ ἑτοιμάσαι καὶ θήσουσιν αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ ἐπὶ τὴν ἑτοιμασίαν αὐτοῦ
