Rebellion of Miriam and Aaron
12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake
against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married
for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
12:2 And they said, Has the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses ?
has he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard [it].
12:3 (Now the man Moses [was] very meek, above all the men which
[were] upon the face of the earth.)
12:4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and
unto Miriam, Come out ya'll three unto the tabernacle of the
congregation. And they three came out.
12:5 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood
[in] the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam and
they both came forth.
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,
[and] will speak unto him in a dream.
12:7 My servant Moses [is] not so, who [is] faithful in all mine
12:8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and
not in dark speeches ; and the similitude of the LORD shall he
behold wherefore then were ya'll not afraid to speak against my
servant Moses ?
12:9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he
Miriam healed of leprosy
12:10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle ; and,
behold, Miriam [became] leprous, [white] as snow and Aaron looked
upon Miriam, and, behold, [she was] leprous.
12:11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech ya'll,
lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and
wherein we have sinned.
12:12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half
consumed when he comes out of his mother's womb.
12:13 And Moses
cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech ya'll.
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
out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received
12:15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days and the
people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in [again ].
12:16 And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth, and pitched
in the wilderness of Paran.
