" NLT 11 And the said to Moses, NIV 11 Then the LORD said to Moses, NLT 12 “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. “Suppose a man’s wife goes astray, and she is unfaithful to her husband NIV 12 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If a man's wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him NLT 13 and has sex with another man, but neither her husband nor anyone else knows about it. She has defiled herself, even though there was no witness and she was not caught in the act. NIV 13 by sleeping with another man, and this is hidden from her husband and her impurity is undetected (since there is no witness against her and she has not been caught in the act), NLT 14 If her husband becomes jealous and is suspicious of his wife and needs to know whether or not she has defiled herself, NIV 14 and if feelings of jealousy come over her husband and he suspects his wife and she is impure--or if he is jealous and suspects her even though she is not impure-- NLT 15 the husband must bring his wife to the priest. He must also bring an offering of two quarts 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 to prove whether or not she is guilty. NIV 15 then he is to take his wife to the priest. He must also take an offering of a tenth of an ephah of barley flour on her behalf. He must not pour oil on it or put incense on it, because it is a grain offering for jealousy, a reminder offering to draw attention to guilt. NLT 16 “The priest will then present her to stand trial before the . NIV 16 " 'The priest shall bring her and have her stand before the LORD. NLT 17 He must take some holy water in a clay jar and pour into it dust he has taken from the Tabernacle floor. NIV 17 Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water. NLT 18 When the priest has presented the woman before the , he must unbind her hair and place in her hands the offering of proof—the jealousy offering to determine whether her husband’s suspicions are justified. The priest will stand before her, holding the jar of bitter water that brings a curse to those who are guilty. NIV 18 After the priest has had the woman stand before the LORD, he shall loosen her hair and place in her hands the reminder offering, the grain offering for jealousy, while he himself holds the bitter water that brings a curse. NLT 19 The priest will then put the woman under oath and say to her, ‘If no other man has had sex with you, and you have not gone astray and defiled yourself while under your husband’s authority, may you be immune from the effects of this bitter water that brings on the curse. NIV 19 Then the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, "If no other man has slept with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you. NLT 20 But if you have gone astray by being unfaithful to your husband, and have defiled yourself by having sex with another man—’ NIV 20 But if you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have defiled yourself by sleeping with a man other than your husband"-- NLT 21 “At this point the priest must put the woman under oath by saying, ‘May the people know that the ’s curse is upon you when he makes you infertile, causing your womb to shrivel and your abdomen to swell. NIV 21 here the priest is to put the woman under this curse of the oath--"may the LORD cause your people to curse and denounce you when he causes your thigh to waste away and your abdomen to swell. NLT 22 Now may this water that brings the curse enter your body and cause your abdomen to swell and your womb to shrivel. ’ And the woman will be required to say, ‘Yes, let it be so.’ NIV 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells and your thigh wastes away. " " 'Then the woman is to say, "Amen. So be it." NLT 23 And the priest will write these curses on a piece of leather and wash them off into the bitter water. NIV 23 " 'The priest is to write these curses on a scroll and then wash them off into the bitter water. NLT 24 He will make the woman drink the bitter water that brings on the curse. When the water enters her body, it will cause bitter suffering if she is guilty. NIV 24 He shall have the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and this water will enter her and cause bitter suffering. NLT 25 “The priest will take the jealousy offering from the woman’s hand, lift it up before the , and carry it to the altar. NIV 25 The priest is to take from her hands the grain offering for jealousy, wave it before the LORD and bring it to the altar. NLT 26 He will take a handful of the flour as a token portion and burn it on the altar, and he will require the woman to drink the water. NIV 26 The priest is then to take a handful of the grain offering as a memorial offering and burn it on the altar; after that, he is to have the woman drink the water. NLT 27 If she has defiled herself by being unfaithful to her husband, the water that brings on the curse will cause bitter suffering. Her abdomen will swell and her womb will shrink, and her name will become a curse among her people. NIV 27 If she has defiled herself and been unfaithful to her husband, then when she is made to drink the water that brings a curse, it will go into her and cause bitter suffering; her abdomen will swell and her thigh waste away, and she will become accursed among her people. NLT 28 But if she has not defiled herself and is pure, then she will be unharmed and will still be able to have children. NIV 28 If, however, the woman has not defiled herself and is free from impurity, she will be cleared of guilt and will be able to have children. NLT 29 “This is the ritual law for dealing with suspicion. If a woman goes astray and defiles herself while under her husband’s authority, NIV 29 " 'This, then, is the law of jealousy when a woman goes astray and defiles herself while married to her husband, NLT 30 or if a man becomes jealous and is suspicious that his wife has been unfaithful, the husband must present his wife before the , and the priest will apply this entire ritual law to her. NIV 30 or when feelings of jealousy come over a man because he suspects his wife. The priest is to have her stand before the LORD and is to apply this entire law to her. NLT 31 The husband will be innocent of any guilt in this matter, but his wife will be held accountable for her sin.” NIV 31 The husband will be innocent of any wrongdoing, but the woman will bear the consequences of her sin.'
