A.M. 3484. B.C. 520.

In this chapter the prophet is shown two visions,

(1,) That of an immense roll, or book, like that which Ezekiel describes, Ezekiel 2:9-10 , filled with curses, and in the act of flying, to denote the celerity and speed, as well as the certainty with which the thief and false swearer would be visited to their utter destruction, Zechariah 5:1-4 .

(2,) The vision of an ephah, or measure, in which sat a woman representing a nation, whose wickedness was arrived at such a height as required an immediate check. Accordingly a heavy cover is cast over her, and she is carried into exile in a distant land, there to abide the full time allotted for her punishment, Zechariah 5:5-11 .
