Numbers 12
A Faithful Version

1And Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had taken, for he had taken a Cushite woman. 2And they said, "Has the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? Has He not also spoken by us?" And the LORD heard it. 3(Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all the men on the face of the earth. ) 4And the LORD spoke suddenly to Moses and to Aaron and to Miriam, "You three come out to the tabernacle of the congregation." And the three came out. 5And 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 forward.

6And He said, "Hear now My words. If there is a prophet among you, I the LORD will make Myself known to him in a vision, and will speak to him in a dream.

7Not so with My servant Moses. He is faithful in all My house.

8I will speak with him mouth to mouth, even clearly, and not in dark speeches. And he shall behold the likeness of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses?"

9And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them, and He departed. 10And the cloud moved from the tabernacle. And behold, Miriam became leprous as snow. And Aaron looked on Miriam, and behold, she was leprous. 11And Aaron said to Moses, "Oh, my lord, I beg you, do not lay upon us the sin in which we have done foolishly, and in which we have sinned. 12Let her not be like one dead of whom the flesh is half gone when he comes out of his mother's womb." 13And Moses cried to the LORD saying, "Heal her now, O God, I beseech You." 14And 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." 15And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days. And the people did not journey until Miriam was brought in.

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