Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 5:11

_ _ To build ... house in ... Shinar — Babylonia (Genesis 10:10), the capital of the God-opposed world kingdoms, and so representing in general the seat of irreligion. As the “building of houses” in Babylon (Jeremiah 29:5, Jeremiah 29:28) by the Jews themselves expressed their long exile there, so the building of an house for “wickedness” there implies its permanent stay.

_ _ set ... upon her own base — fixed there as in its proper place. “Wickedness” being cast out of Judah, shall for ever dwell with the antichristian apostates (of whom Babylon is the type), who shall reap the fruit of it, which they deserve.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 5:5-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 5:11

To build — Not in mercy, but in judgment. Of Shinar — Of Babylon whither many of the Jews fled, and others of them were forced by the Romans. Set there — There they shall be confined without hope of release. Her own base — They are settled upon the lees of their own unbelief: their wickedness is established on its own bases.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And he said to me, To build for it an house in the land of (l) Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.

(l) To remove the iniquity and affliction that came from Judah because of the judgment, to place it forever in Babylon.
