“And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:7 And behold - Here is another part of this vision. Lifted up - Brought thither to cover it. A talent - A piece of lead of a talent weight, as large as the mouth of the ephah. A woman - A woman, the third in the vision. Perhaps this vision was purposely obscure, least a plain denunciation of the second overthrow of the state and temple, might discourage them from going forward in the present restoration of them.
