Twisted scriptures in the KJV rob the sinners of the hope of salvation!

The original Hebrew says:

Zec 5:1  ואשׁוב ואשׂא עיני ואראה והנה מגלה עפה׃ 

Zec 5:2  ויאמר אלי מה אתה ראה ואמר אני ראה מגלה עפה ארכה עשׂרים באמה ורחבה עשׂר באמה׃ 

Zec 5:3  ויאמר אלי זאת האלה היוצאת על־פני כל־הארץ כי כל־הגנב מזה כמוה נקה וכל־הנשׁבע מזה כמוה נקה׃ 

Zec 5:4  הוצאתיה נאם יהוה צבאות ובאה אל־בית הגנב ואל־בית הנשׁבע בשׁמי לשׁקר ולנה בתוך ביתו וכלתו ואת־עציו ואת־אבניו׃ 

Zec 5:5  ויצא המלאך הדבר בי ויאמר אלי שׂא נא עיניך וראה מה היוצאת הזאת׃ 

Zec 5:6  ואמר מה־היא ויאמר זאת האיפה היוצאת ויאמר זאת עינם בכל־הארץ׃ 

Zec 5:7  והנה ככר עפרת נשׂאת וזאת אשׁה אחת יושׁבת בתוך האיפה׃

Zec 5:8  ויאמר זאת הרשׁעה וישׁלך אתה אל־תוך האיפה וישׁלך את־אבן העפרת אל־פיה׃

Zec 5:9  ואשׂא עיני וארא והנה שׁתים נשׁים יוצאות ורוח בכנפיהם ולהנה כנפים ככנפי החסידה ותשׂאנה את־האיפה בין הארץ ובין השׁמים׃ 

Zec 5:10  ואמר אל־המלאך הדבר בי אנה המה מולכות את־האיפה׃ 

Zec 5:11  ויאמר אלי לבנות־לה בית בארץ שׁנער והוכן והניחה שׁם על־מכנתה׃

KJV version says:

Zec 5:1  Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. 

Zec 5:2  And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. 

Zec 5:3  Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. 

Zec 5:4  I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof. 

Zec 5:5  Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth. 

Zec 5:6  And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth. 

Zec 5:7  And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah. 

Zec 5:8  And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof. 

Zec 5:9  Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. 

Zec 5:10  Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah? 

Zec 5:11  And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base. 

Literal translation from the Hebrew says:

Zechariah 5

1 and I turned and lifted my eyes and saw a flying scroll(or roll)

2 and he said to me, what did you see? And he said, I saw a flying scroll(or roll) twenty cubits by ten cubits

3 and he said to me, these are the ones who go out on the face of all the earth because all who thieve are cleansed and all who swore an oath are cleansed

4 You shall speak, YHVH of armies(hosts) said, go to the house of the thief and to the house where they swore to lie in My Name and to the rest that dwell among(in the midst) his house and his bride and his trees and his stones

5 And the messenger went out and said unto me, go, see with your own eyes what is going out

6 And he said what he said, and said, this is the way out and what their eyes have seen shall be told in all the earth

7 and see, in the valley of Ephrath(Euphrates) I married this one wife(woman) and settled in the midst of it(her).

8 And the wicked one said this, cast it with you into the midst of it and cast the stone into the Ephrath(Euphrates)

9 and I lifted up my eyes and saw, and see, there were two wives(or women) and I saw a spirit fly out with wings like a stork and camped out between the earth and the heavens

10 and the messenger said to me, that's what they reign(rule) there

11 and he said unto me, build a house in the shaken land(or in the land of Shinar) and prepare and put a name on it.
