Numbers 5:7-17 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible
7 Such persons will confess the sin they have done. Each will make payment for his guilt, add one-fifth more, and give it to the injured party. 8 If the person has no close relative to whom the payment can be made, then the compensation payment will go to the LORD for the priest. This is in addition to the ram of reconciliation by which the guilty party himself is reconciled. 9 Any gift offering from all the sacred donations that the Israelites offer will be the property of the priest. 10 The sacred donations belong to each person alone; whatever anyone gives to the priest will be his.

A woman accused of adultery

11 The LORD spoke to Moses: 12 Speak to the Israelites and say to them: A man may suspect that his wife has had an affaira and has broken faith with him, 13 that a man has had intercourse with her unknown to her husband and that she has defiled herself in secret—even though there are no witnesses and she isn't caught. 14 If jealousy overcomes him and he is jealous of his wife who has defiled herself, or if jealousy overcomes him and he is jealous of his wife who hasn't defiled herself, 15 then the man will bring his wife to the priest. He will bring the offering required for her, one-tenth of an ephahb of barley flour. He will not pour oil on it, nor offer frankincense with it, because it is a grain offering for jealousy, a grain offering for recognition in order to recognize guilt. 16 The priest will bring her close and make her stand before the LORD 17 The priest will take holy water in a clay jar, and taking dust from the floor of the dwelling, the priest will place it in the water.
