    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:11

    Y él me respondió: Para que le sea edificada casa en tierra de Sinar; y será asentado y puesto allá sobre su asiento.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 5:11

    Verse 11. 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!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. And he said unto me, To build it an
    house in the land of Shinar , etc.] That is, in the province of Babylon, as the Targum paraphrases it; for Babel, or Babylon, was in the land of Shinar, ( Genesis 10:10 11:2) whither the Jews were carried captive, ( Daniel 1:2) ( Isaiah 11:11), and the bearing of the “ephah” thither may denote the cause of their captivity, the measure of sins filled up by them: though this some understand of the like injuries, oppressions, and vexations, brought upon the Chaldeans in the land of Shinar, which they before exercised towards and upon the Jews; and others of the rejection of wicked men from among the Jews, by Ezra and Nehemiah, transporting them as it were back to Babylon again: others of the dispersion of the Jews by the Romans, who chiefly settled after that in the eastern parts of the world; though indeed the whole world was a land of Shinar, or “shaking out” unto them; they being shook out of their own land, and scattered about everywhere; which dispersion has been long and lasting, notorious and conspicuous; and they are now settled upon their own base, established upon their former principles of legality and self-righteousness, and rejection of the true Messiah; or rather this may be understood of the transfer of the ephah, or whole measure of iniquity, into mystical Babylon. The antichristian church of Rome is called Babylon; she is represented as a sink of sin, a mystery of iniquity, ( Revelation 17:5) and a house being built for this man of sin, antichrist, denotes the continuance of him; and being established on its own base, shows the false foundation on which the church of Rome is built, and her carnal security. So Cocceius, by the “two women”, understands the two kingdoms or powers of antichrist, the civil and ecclesiastical powers; which support the man of sin, lift him up, and give him the highest place in the church, and fix his seat where idolatry and persecution reign, as formerly did in Babylon, in the land of Shinar. Though the whole may very well be applied to the last and everlasting punishment of sin and sinners, when the whole measure is filled up. The end of sin and sinners is death and everlasting destruction. The ephah, and the woman in it, are carried, not upwards to heaven, nor to the New Jerusalem, but to the land of Shinar, the land of shaking; to hell, where are utter darkness, weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth; where a house is built for them, which denotes their continuance there; and which, being established on its own base, shows their punishment shall forever remain; their worm never dies; their fire is not quenched; the smoke of it ascends for ever and ever; their destruction is an everlasting destruction.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-11 - In this vision the
    prophet sees an ephah, something in the shape of corn measure. This betokened the Jewish nation. They are filling the measure of their iniquity; and when it is full, they shall be delivere into the hands of those to whom God sold them for their sins. The woma sitting in the midst of the ephah represents the sinful church an nation of the Jews, in their latter and corrupt age. Guilt is upon the sinner as a weight of lead, to sink him to the lowest hell. This seem to mean the condemnation of the Jews, after they filled the measure of their iniquities by crucifying Christ and rejecting his gospel Zechariah sees the ephah, with the woman thus pressed in it, carrie away to some far country. This intimates that the Jews should be hurried out of their own land, and forced to dwell in far countries, a they had been in Babylon. There the ephah shall be firmly placed, an their sufferings shall continue far longer than in their lat captivity. Blindness is happened unto Israel, and they are settled upo their own unbelief. Let sinners fear to treasure up wrath against the day of wrath; for the more they multiply crimes, the faster the measur fills __________________________________________________________________
