The Fourth Book of Moses, Called Numbers
Miriam and Aaron Speak against Moses
And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
And they said, Hath the L ORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the L ORD heard it.
(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
And the L ORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
And the L ORD 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.
And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the L ORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. Heb. 3.2
With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the L ORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
¶ And the anger of the L ORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
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.
And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.
Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.
And Moses cried unto the L ORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.
And the L ORD 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 in Num. 5.2, 3 again.
And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.
And afterward the people removed from Haze'roth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.
