Numbers 5:7-17 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
7 and must admit the wrong that has been done. The person must fully pay for the wrong that has been done, adding one-fifth to it, and giving it to the person who was wronged. 8 But if that person is dead and does not have any close relatives to receive the payment, the one who did wrong owes the Lord and must pay the priest. In addition, the priest must sacrifice a male sheep to remove the wrong so that the person will belong to the Lord. 9 When an Israelite brings a holy gift, it should be given to the priest. 10 No one has to give these holy gifts, but if someone does give them, they belong to the priest.'" 11 Then the Lord said to Moses, 12 "Tell the Israelites: 'A man's wife might be unfaithful to him 13 and have sexual relations with another man. Her sin might be kept hidden from her husband so that he does not know about the wrong she did. Perhaps no one saw it, and she wasn't caught. 14 But if her husband has feelings of jealousy and suspects she has sinned -- whether she has or not -- 15 he should take her to the priest. The husband must also take an offering for her of two quarts of barley flour. He must not pour oil or incense on it, because this is a grain offering for jealousy, an offering of remembrance. It is to find out if she is guilty. 16 "'The priest will bring in the woman and make her stand before the Lord. 17 He will take some holy water in a clay jar, and he will put some dirt from the floor of the Holy Tent into the water.
