Miryam and Aharon spoke against Moshe because of the Kushite woman whom he had married; for he had married a Kushite woman.
They said, Has the LORD indeed spoken only with Moshe? Hasn't he spoken also with us? the LORD heard it.
Now the man Moshe was very humble, above all the men who were on the surface of the eretz.
The LORD spoke suddenly to Moshe, and to Aharon, and to Miryam, Come out you three to the tent of meeting. They three came out.
The LORD came down in a pillar of cloud, and stood at the door of the Tent, and called Aharon and Miryam; and they both came forth.
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, I will speak with him in a dream.
My servant Moshe is not so; he is faithful in all my house:
with him will I speak mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark speeches; and the form of the LORD shall he see: why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moshe?
The anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
The cloud removed from over the Tent; and, behold, Miryam was leprous, as [white as] snow: and Aharon looked at Miryam, and, behold, she was leprous.
Aharon said to Moshe, Oh, my lord, please don't lay sin on us, for that we have done foolishly, and for that we have sinned.
Let her not, I pray, be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he comes out of his mother's womb.
Moshe cried to the LORD, saying, Heal her, God, I beg you.
The LORD said to Moshe, If her father had but spit in her face, shouldn't she be ashamed seven days? let her be shut up outside of the camp seven days, and after that she shall be brought in again.
Miryam was shut up outside of the camp seven days: and the people didn't travel until Miryam was brought in again.
Afterward the people journeyed from Hatzerot, and encamped in the wilderness of Paran.
