Numbers 12
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Miriam speaks—Aaron also—against Moses concerning the circumstance of the Cushite woman whom he had taken, for he had taken a Cushite woman; 2and they say, “Has YHWH only spoken by Moses? Has he not also spoken by us?” And YHWH hears. 3And the man Moses [is] very humble, more than any of the men who [are] on the face of the ground. 4And YHWH suddenly says to Moses, and to Aaron, and to Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the Tent of Meeting”; and those three come out. 5And YHWH comes down in the pillar of the cloud, and stands at the opening of the tent, and calls Aaron and Miriam, and both of them come out.

6And He says, “Now hear My words: If your prophet is of YHWH, "" I make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.

7Not so My servant Moses; He [is] steadfast in all My house.

8I speak with him mouth to mouth, "" Even [by] an appearance, and not in riddles; And he beholds the form of YHWH attentively. Now why have you not been afraid "" To speak against My servant—against Moses?”

9And the anger of YHWH burns against them, and He goes on, 10and the cloud has turned aside from off the tent, and behold, Miriam [is] leprous as snow; and Aaron turns to Miriam, and behold, leprous! 11And Aaron says to Moses, “O my lord, please do not lay [this] sin on us [in] which we have been foolish, and [in] which we have sinned; 12please do not let her be as [one] dead, when in his coming out from the womb of his mother—the half of his flesh is consumed.” 13And Moses cries to YHWH, saying, “O God, please give healing to her! Please!” 14And YHWH says to Moses, “But [if] her father had but spat in her face—is she not ashamed [for] seven days? She is shut out [for] seven days at the outside of the camp, and afterward she is gathered.” 15And Miriam is shut out at the outside of the camp [for] seven days, and the people have not journeyed until Miriam is gathered;

16and afterward the people have journeyed from Hazeroth, and they encamp in the wilderness of Paran.
