1 Et conversus sum et levavi ocu los meos et vidi: et ecce volu men volans.
2 Et dixit ad me: "Quid tu vides?". Et dixi: "Ego video volumen volans; longitudo eius viginti cubitorum et latitudo eius decem cubitorum".
3 Et dixit ad me: "Haec est maledictio, quae egreditur super faciem omnis terrae; quia omnis fur hinc iuxta illud expurgatur, et omnis periurus illinc iuxta illud expurgatur.
4 Educo illud, dicit Dominus exercituum, et veniet ad domum furis et ad domum iurantis in nomine meo mendaciter; et commorabitur in medio domus eius, et consumet eam et ligna eius et lapides eius".
5 Et egressus est angelus, qui loquebatur in me, et dixit ad me: "Leva, quaeso, oculos tuos et vide. Quid est hoc, quod egreditur?".
6 Et dixi: "Quidnam est?". Et ait: "Haec est epha egrediens". Et dixit: "Hoc est peccatum eorum in universa terra".
7 Et ecce operculum plumbi elevatum est, et ecce mulier una sedens in medio ephae.
8 Et dixit: "Haec est impietas". Et proiecit eam in epham et misit massam plumbeam in os eius.
9 Et levavi oculos meos et vidi: et ecce duae mulieres egredientes, et ventus in alis earum, et habebant alas quasi alas milvi; et levaverunt epham inter terram et caelum.
10 Et dixi ad angelum, qui loquebatur in me: "Quo istae deferunt epham?".
11 Et dixit ad me: "Ut aedificetur ei domus in terra Sennaar; et, postquam constructa fuerit, ponetur ibi super basem suam".
King James Version
1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.
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.
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.
10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?
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.
