|New International Version (© 2011)|
He replied, "To the country of Babylonia to build a house for it. When the house is ready, the basket will be set there in its place."
King James Bible
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.
American Standard Version
And he said unto me, To build her a house in the land of Shinar: and when it is prepared, she shall be set there in her own place.
Young's Literal Translation
And he saith unto me, 'To build to it a house in the land of Shinar.' And it hath been prepared and hath been placed there on its base.
Zechariah 5:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
To build it a house in the land of Shinar - The land of Shinar means Babylon; and Babylon means Rome, in the Apocalypse. The building the house for the woman imprisoned in the ephah may signify, that there should be a long captivity under the Romans, as there was under that of Shinar or Babylon, by which Rome may here be represented. That house remains to the present day: the Jewish woman is still in the ephah; it is set on its own base - continues still as a distinct nation; and the talent of lead - God's displeasure - is still on the top. O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel!
