May this water1 that brings a curse2 enter your body so that your abdomen swells and your thigh wastes away.a " " 'Then the woman is to say, "Amen. So be it.3"
" 'The priest is to write these curses on a scroll4 and then wash them off into the bitter water.
He shall have the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and this water will enter her and cause bitter suffering.
The priest is to take from her hands the grain offering for jealousy, wave it before the LORD5 and bring it to the altar.
The priest is then to take a handful of the grain offering as a memorial offering6 and burn it on the altar; after that, he is to have the woman drink the water.
If she has defiled herself and been unfaithful to her husband, then when she is made to drink the water that brings a curse, it will go into her and cause bitter suffering; her abdomen will swell and her thigh waste away,b and she will become accursed7 among her people.
