Zechariah 5:11

Context
5:11 He replied, “To build a temple 1  for her in the land of Babylonia. 2  When it is finished, she will be placed there in her own residence.”

1 tn Heb “house” (so NIV, NRSV, CEV).

2 sn The land of Babylonia (Heb “the land of Shinar”) is another name for Sumer and Akkad, where Babylon was located (Gen 10:10). Babylon throughout the Bible symbolizes the focus of anti-God sentiment and activity (Gen 11:4; 14:1; Isa 13–14; 47:1-3; Jer 50–51; Rev 14:8; 17:1, 5, 18; 18:21).
