God rebuketh the sedition of Miriam and Aaron.
Numbers 12:1 And Miriam speakethAaron alsoagainst Moses concerning the circumstance of the Cushite woman whom he had taken: for a Cushite woman he had taken; Numbers 12:2 and they say, 'Only by Moses hath Jehovah spoken? also by us hath he not spoken?' and Jehovah heareth. Numbers 12:3 And the man Moses [is] very humble, more than any of the men who [are] on the face of the ground. Numbers 12:4 And Jehovah saith suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, 'Come out ye three unto the tent of meeting;' and they three come out. Numbers 12:5 And Jehovah cometh down in the pillar of the cloud, and standeth at the opening of the tent, and calleth Aaron and Miriam, and they come out both of them. Numbers 12:6 And He saith, 'Hear, I pray you, My words: If your prophet is of Jehovahin an appearance unto him I make Myself known; in a dream I speak with him; Numbers 12:7 not so My servant Moses; in all My house he [is] stedfast; Numbers 12:8 mouth unto mouth I speak with him, and [by] an appearance, and not in riddles; and the form of Jehovah he beholdeth attentively; and wherefore have ye not been afraid to speak against My servantagainst Moses?' Numbers 12:9 And the anger of Jehovah burneth against them, and He goeth on,
Miriam's leprosy is healed at the prayer of Moses.
Numbers 12:10 and the cloud hath turned aside from off the tent, and lo, Miriam [is] leprous as snow; and Aaron turneth unto Miriam, and lo, leprous! Numbers 12:11 And Aaron saith unto Moses, 'O, my lord, I pray thee, lay not upon us sin [in] which we have been foolish, and [in] which we have sinned; Numbers 12:12 let her not, I pray thee, be as [one] dead, when in his coming out from the womb of his motherthe half of his flesh is consumed.' Numbers 12:13 And Moses crieth unto Jehovah, saying, 'O God, I pray Thee, give, I pray Thee, healing to her.'
God commandeth her to be shut out of the host.
Numbers 12:14 And Jehovah saith unto Moses, 'And her father had but spat in her faceis she not ashamed seven days? she is shut out seven days at the outside of the camp, and afterwards she is gathered.' Numbers 12:15 And Miriam is shut out at the outside of the camp seven days, and the people hath not journeyed till Miriam is gathered; Numbers 12:16 and afterwards have the people journeyed from Hazeroth, and they encamp in the wilderness of Paran.
