A Woman in a Basket?

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 8:59 AM

 

One of the substantial changes in the Eth Cepher is Chapter 5 of the book of Zakaryahu (Zechariah).  Let’s take a look at the original:

Zechariah 5:1-11

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.

We took a look at this passage in the Hebrew and found at least one notable difference, all of which hinges around the word “woman” which in the Hebrew is the word אשה  'ishshah, which means a woman.

However, we note that the word אשה  eshshaw also means fire (Strong’s 800).  The problem with this word in the original requires the interpreter to choose between woman and fire.  We elected to use the word fire, as we believe it is contextually more correct than woman.

THEN I turned, and lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.

Now in this verse, one must distinguish between a scroll, which has two handles upon which the document is fixed, and a roll, which is a document wrapped around a single handle.  This roll can also be a fixed cylinder of clay upon which writing is inscribed, then inked to be rolled out over some form of manuscript, allowing an edict to exist indefinitely.  A roll, then, is much more like a cylinder than a scroll.

2 And he said unto me, What do you see? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.

Isaac Newton is one among just a few who calculated what he called the sacred cubit – a length of 22.3 inches.  The roll then was nearly 40 feet high and 20 feet around.  Picture this “roll” in your mind for just a minute.

3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth: for everyone that steals is innocent according to her; and everyone that swears is innocent according to her. 4 I will bring her forth, says YAHUAH TSEVA’OT, and she shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that swears falsely by my name: and she shall remain in the midst of this house, and she shall finish it, its timber and its stones.

This roll is a curse, and it resides among the thief and those who swear falsely in the name of YAH.  That is to say, it resides among hypocrites who pretend to be followers of the faith – those who call themselves “Christians” but practice abortion, homosexuality, secular humanism, theft as a fundamental basis of commerce, atheism in government, and so forth, for instance. 

5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now your eyes, and see what is this that goes forth. 6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is the measure that goes forth. He said moreover, This is how they appear through all the earth.

The word that is found in some texts which we have translated as the “measure” is ephah (Strong’s 374) which means a measure.  How much of a measure?  Who knows, but note that nuclear weapons are all measured in terms of their explosive capability, i.e., 10 kiloton, 1 megaton, even 100 megaton (Tsar Bomba), and that all nations measure their nuclear weapons in the same manner.

7 And, behold, there was lifted up a disk of lead: and there a fire sits in the midst of the measure. 8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the measure; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.

This is, as you can see, markedly different than a woman in a basket.  Instead you see a fire – that is to say, that which you will see when a rocket ignites, beneath a disk of lead, which is where radioactive intercontinental ballistic missiles were kept in their silos.

9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two of them, the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up their measure between the earth and the heavens.

This verse makes more sense, doesn’t it?  Now, it is not two women coming out of the silo (a place where a measure of grain is stored), but rather two fires – which is to say, could imply a two-stage rocket, which has the wings of a stork and lifts itself up between the earth and the heavens.

10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, where are they causing the measure to go? 11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shin`ar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.

The land of Shinar is a plane in ancient Babylonia, or Babel.  Here, according to this prophecy, around the time that the house of Yahudah is established back in the area surrounding Yerushaliym, the measure of this roll will have a house built for it, where it will be established, and set in her own base.  An interesting use of terms. 

Such is the interpretation of this chapter in the Eth Cepher.
