Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 5:2

_ _ length ... twenty cubits ... breadth ... ten cubits — thirty feet by fifteen, the dimensions of the temple porch (1 Kings 6:3), where the law was usually read, showing that it was divinely authoritative in the theocracy. Its large size implies the great number of the curses contained. The Hebrew for “roll” or “volume” is used of the law (Psalms 40:7).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 5:2

And he said to me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying (a) scroll; its length [is] twenty cubits, and its breadth ten cubits.

(a) Because the Jews had provoked God's plagues by condemning his word, and casting off all judgment and equity, he shows that God's curses written in this book had justly happened both to them and their fathers. But now if they would repent, God would send the same among the Chaldeans and their former enemies.
