Why then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses? 8 With him I speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?"
9 And the anger of Jehovah was kindled against them, and he went away; 9 The anger of the LORD burned against them, and he left them.

Confine her outside the camp for seven days; after that she can be brought back."
