God rebuketh the sedition of Miriam and Aaron.
Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses, on account of the Cushite woman whom he had taken,for, a Cushite woman, had he taken. Numbers 12:2 And they said: Is it, only, and solely, with Moses, that Yahweh hath spoken? With us also, hath he not spoken? And Yahweh heard it. Numbers 12:3 Now, the man Moses, was patient, exceedingly,above all the sons of earth, who were on the face of the ground. Numbers 12:4 Then said Yahweh, suddenly, unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out, ye three, unto the tent of meeting. And they three went out. Numbers 12:5 Then Yahweh came down, in a pillar of cloud, and stood at the entrance of the tent,and called Aaron and Miriam, and they both went forth. Numbers 12:6 Then said he, Hear, I beseech you, my words. When ye have your prophet, As Yahweh, in a vision, will I make myself known, unto him; In a dream, will I speak with him. Numbers 12:7 Not so, my servant Moses,In all my house, trusty, is he: Numbers 12:8 Mouth to mouth, do I speak with him, And plainlynot in dark sayings, And, the form of Yahweh, doth he discern,Wherefore, then, were ye not afraid to speak against my servantagainst Moses? Numbers 12:9 And the anger of Yahweh kindled upon them, and he departed.
Miriam's leprosy is healed at the prayer of Moses.
Numbers 12:10 And, when, the cloud, removed from off the tent,lo! Miriam, leprous, like snow! And Aaron turned unto Miriam, and lo! . . . leprous! Numbers 12:11 Then said Aaron unto Moses,Oh my lord, do not, I beseech thee, lay upon us sin, although we have made ourselves foolish, and although we have sinned. Numbers 12:12 Let her not, I beseech thee, remain like the still-born,which, when it is born of its mother, the half of its flesh is consumed. Numbers 12:13 Then Moses made outcry unto Yahweh, saying,O GOD, I beseech thee, grant healing, I beseech thee, unto her.
God commandeth her to be shut out of the host.
Numbers 12:14 And Yahweh said unto Moses: If, her own father, had, but spat, in her face, would she not have acknowledged the shame for seven days? Let her shut herself up for seven days, outside the camp, and, afterwards, let her be received back. Numbers 12:15 So Miriam shut herself up, outside the camp, for seven days,and, the people, set not forward, until Miriam had been received back. Numbers 12:16 Then, afterwards, did the people set forward from Hazeroth, and encamped in the desert of Paran.
