Numbers 12

1 And Miryam and Aaron (Aharon) spake against Moses (Mosheh) because of the Ethiopian (Kushi) woman whom he had married; for he had married an Ethiopian (Kushi) woman.

2 And they said, “Hath יהוה indeed spoken only by Moses (Mosheh)? Hath he not spoken also by us?” And יהוה heard it.

3 (Now the man Moses (Mosheh) was very meek, above all the men who were upon the face of the earth.)

4 And יהוה spake suddenly unto Moses (Mosheh), and unto Aaron (Aharon), and unto Miryam, “Come out you three unto the tabernacle of the congregation.” And they three came out.

5 And יהוה came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron (Aharon) and Miryam; and they both came forth.

6 And He said, “Hear now My words: If there be a prophet among you, I יהוה will make Myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

7 My servant Moses (Mosheh) is not so, who is faithful in all Mine house.

8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of יהוה shall he behold. Wherefore then were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses (Mosheh)?”

9 And the anger of יהוה was kindled against them, and He departed.

10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miryam became leprous, white as snow; and Aaron (Aharon) looked upon Miryam, and, behold, she was leprous.

11 And Aaron (Aharon) said unto Moses (Mosheh), “Alas, my lord (adoni), I beseech you, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.

12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother’s womb!”

13 And Moses (Mosheh) cried unto יהוה, saying, “Heal her now, O God (Elohim), I beseech You.”

14 And יהוה said unto Moses (Mosheh), “If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? Let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.”

15 And Miryam was shut out from the camp seven days; and the people journeyed not till Miryam was brought in again.

16 And afterward the people moved from Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.
