Chapter 12

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 to Moses, and to Aaron, and to Miriam, Come out ya'll three to 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 to him in a vision, [and] will speak to him in a dream.
12:7 My servant Moses [is] not so, who [is] faithful in all mine house.
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 departed.

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 to 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 to the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech ya'll .
12:14 And the LORD said to 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 in [again].
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.
