NASB — Numbers 12 — KJV

The Murmuring of Miriam and Aaron

1 Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married (for he had married a aCushite woman); 2 aand they said, “Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us as well?” And the LORD heard it. 3 (Now the man Moses was avery humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth.) 4 Suddenly the LORD said to Moses and Aaron and to Miriam, “You three come out to the tent of meeting.” So the three of them came out. 5 aThen the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud and stood at the doorway of the tent, and He called IAaron and Miriam. When they had both come forward, 6 He said,
  “Hear now My words:
  If there is a prophet among you,
  I, the LORD, shall make Myself known to him in a avision.
  I shall speak with him in a bdream.
  7 “Not so, with aMy servant Moses,
  bHe is faithful in all My household;
  8 aWith him I speak mouth to mouth,
  Even openly, and not in dark sayings,
  And he beholds bthe form of the LORD.
  Why then were you not afraid
  To speak against My servant, against Moses?”

9 ¶ So the anger of the LORD burned against them and aHe departed. 10 But when the cloud had withdrawn from over the tent, behold, aMiriam [was] leprous, as b[white as] snow. As Aaron turned toward Miriam, behold, she [was] leprous. 11 Then Aaron said to Moses, “Oh, my lord, I beg you, ado not account [this] sin to us, in which we have acted foolishly and in which we have sinned. 12 Oh, do not let her be like one dead, whose flesh is half eaten away when he comes from his mother’s womb!” 13 Moses cried out to the LORD, saying, “O God, aheal her, I pray!” 14 But the LORD said to Moses, “If her father had but aspit in her face, would she not bear her shame for seven days? Let her be shut up for seven days boutside the camp, and afterward she may be received again.” 15 So aMiriam was shut up outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not move on until Miriam was received again.

God rebuketh the sedition of Miriam and Aaron.

1 ¶ And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. 2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard [it]. 3 (Now the man Moses [was] very meek, above all the men which [were] upon the face of the earth.) 4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out. 5 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood [in] the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth. 6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, [I] the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, [and] will speak unto him in a dream. 7 My servant Moses [is] not so, who [is] faithful in all mine house. 8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses? 9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.

Miriam's leprosy is healed at the prayer of Moses.

10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam [became] leprous, [white] as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, [she was] leprous. 11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned. 12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb. 13 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.

God commandeth her to be shut out of the host.

14 ¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in [again]. 15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in [again]. 16 And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.
