God rebuketh the sedition of Miriam and Aaron.
Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married: for he had married a Cushite woman. Numbers 12:2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only with Moses? hath he not spoken also with us? And the LORD heard it. Numbers 12:3 Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth. Numbers 12:4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tent of meeting. And they three came out. Numbers 12:5 And the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud, and stood at the door of the Tent, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth. Numbers 12:6 And he said, Hear now my words: if there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, I will speak with him in a dream. Numbers 12:7 My servant Moses is not so; he is faithful in all mine house: Numbers 12:8 with him will I speak mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark speeches; and the form of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses? Numbers 12:9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
Miriam's leprosy is healed at the prayer of Moses.
Numbers 12:10 And the cloud removed from over the Tent; and, behold, Miriam was leprous, as [white as] snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous. Numbers 12:11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Oh my lord, lay not, I pray thee, sin upon us, for that we have done foolishly, and for that we have sinned. Numbers 12:12 Let her not, I pray, be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb. Numbers 12:13 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her, O God, I beseech thee.
God commandeth her to be shut out of the host.
Numbers 12:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut up without the camp seven days, and after that she shall be brought in again. Numbers 12:15 And Miriam was shut up without the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again. Numbers 12:16 And afterward the people journeyed from Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.
