Numbers 5:7-17 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
7 They must confess their sin and make full restitution for what they have done, adding a penalty of 20 percent and returning it to the person who was wronged. 8 But if the person who was wronged is dead, and there are no near relatives to whom restitution can be made, it belongs to the LORD and must be given to the priest, along with a ram for atonement. 9 All the sacred gifts that the Israelites bring to a priest will belong to him. 10 Each priest may keep the sacred donations that he receives." 11 And the LORD said to Moses, 12 "Say to the people of Israel: 'Suppose a man's wife goes astray and is unfaithful to her husband. 13 Suppose she sleeps with another man, but there is no witness since she was not caught in the act. 14 If her husband becomes jealous and suspicious of his wife, even if she has not defiled herself, 15 the husband must bring his wife to the priest with an offering of two quarts a of barley flour to be presented on her behalf. Do not mix it with olive oil or frankincense, for it is a jealousy offering -- an offering of inquiry to find out if she is guilty. 16 "'The priest must then present her before the LORD. 17 He must take some holy water in a clay jar and mix it with dust from the Tabernacle floor.
