CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:6 He - The angel. An ephah - A measure which held about three bushels. Goeth forth - Out of the temple. Their resemblance - This is an emblem of this people everywhere. Thus there is limited time and measure for them, while they sin, and are filling the ephah with their sins, they will find that the ephah of wrath is filled up also, to be poured out upon them.

Then the heavy lead cover was lifted off the basket, and there was a woman sitting inside it.
