Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Mary and Aaron spoke against Moses, because of his wife the Ethiopian, 1 Miriam and Aaron began to talk against Moses because of his Cushite wife, for he had married a Cushite.
2 And they said: Hath the Lord spoken by Moses only? Hath he not also spoken to us in like manner? And when the Lord heard this, 2 "Has the LORD spoken only through Moses?" they asked. "Hasn't he also spoken through us?" And the LORD heard this.
3 (For Moses was a man exceeding meek above all men that dwelt upon earth) 3 (Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.)
4 Immediately he spoke to him, and to Aaron and Mary: Come out you three only to the tabernacle of the covenant. And when they were come out, 4 At once the LORD said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, "Come out to the Tent of Meeting, all three of you." So the three of them came out.
5 The Lord came down in a pillar of the cloud, and stood in the entry of the tabernacle calling to Aaron and Mary. And when they were come, 5 Then the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud; he stood at the entrance to the Tent and summoned Aaron and Miriam. When both of them stepped forward,
6 He said to them: Hear my words: if there be among you a prophet of the Lord, I will appear to him in a vision, or I will speak to him in a dream. 6 he said, "Listen to my words: "When a prophet of the LORD is among you, I reveal myself to him in visions, I speak to him in dreams.
7 But it is not so with my servant Moses who is most faithful in all my house: 7 But this is not true of my servant Moses; he is faithful in all my house.
8 For I speak to him mouth to mouth: and plainly, and not by riddles and figures doth he see the Lord. Why then were you not afraid to speak ill of my servant 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 being angry with them he went away: 9 The anger of the LORD burned against them, and he left them.
10 The cloud also that was over the tabernacle departed: and behold Mary appeared white as snow with a leprosy. And when Aaron had looked on her, and saw her all covered with leprosy, 10 When the cloud lifted from above the Tent, there stood Miriam--leprous, like snow. Aaron turned toward her and saw that she had leprosy;
11 He said to Moses: I beseech thee, my lord, lay not upon us this sin, which we have foolishly committed: 11 and he said to Moses, "Please, my lord, do not hold against us the sin we have so foolishly committed.
12 Let her not be as one dead, and as an abortive that is cast forth from the mother’s womb. Lo, now one half of her flesh is consumed with the leprosy. 12 Do not let her be like a stillborn infant coming from its mother's womb with its flesh half eaten away."
13 And Moses cried to the Lord, saying O God, I beseech thee heal her. 13 So Moses cried out to the LORD, "O God, please heal her!"
14 And the Lord answered him: If her father had spitten upon her face, ought she not to have been ashamed for seven days at least? Let her be separated seven days without the camp, and afterwards she shall be called again. 14 The LORD replied to Moses, "If her father had spit in her face, would she not have been in disgrace for seven days? Confine her outside the camp for seven days; after that she can be brought back."
15 Mary therefore was put out of the camp seven days: and the people moved not from that place until Mary was called again. 15 So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not move on till she was brought back.
16 (13-1) And the people marched from Haseroth, and pitched their tents in the desert of Pharan. 16 After that, the people left Hazeroth and encamped in the Desert of Paran.
