Miriam and Aaron Speak Against Moses

1 Miriam and Aaron began to say bad things about Moses. That's because Moses had married a woman from Cush. 2 "Has the LORD spoken only through Moses?" they asked. "Hasn't he also spoken through us?" The LORD heard what they said. 3 Moses wasn't very proud at all. In fact, he had less pride than anyone else on the face of the earth. 4 The LORD spoke to Moses, Aaron and Miriam. He said, "All three of you, come out to the Tent of Meeting." So they did. 5 Then the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud. He stood at the entrance to the tent. And he told Aaron and Miriam to come to him. Both of them stepped forward. 6 Then the LORD said, "Listen to my words. "Suppose one of my prophets is among you. I make myself known to him in visions. I speak to him in dreams. 7 But that is not true of my servant Moses. He is faithful in everything he does in my house. 8 With Moses I speak face to face. I speak with him clearly. I do not speak in riddles. I let him see something of what I look like. So why were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?"
