When they were in Hazeroth, 1Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman he had married: “He married a Cushite woman!” 2They said, “Has the LORD spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us as well?” The LORD heard it. 3Now Moses was a very humble man, more so than any other man on earth. 4Suddenly the LORD called to Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the Tent of Meeting.” So the three of them went out. 5The LORD came down in a pillar of cloud, stopped at the entrance of the Tent, and called out, “Aaron and Miriam!” The two of them came forward; 6and He said, “Hear these My words: d‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. Others “If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord.” When a prophet of the LORD arises among you, I ‐d Meaning of Heb. uncertain.

How then did you not shrink from speaking against My servant Moses!” 9Still incensed with them, the LORD departed.

10As the cloud withdrew from the Tent, there was Miriam stricken with snow‐white scales! a Cf. Lev. 13.2–3. When Aaron turned toward Miriam, he saw that she was stricken with scales. 11And Aaron said to Moses, “O my lord, account not to us the sin which we committed in our folly. 12Let her not be as one dead, who emerges from his mother's womb with half his flesh eaten away.” 13So Moses cried out to the LORD, saying, “O God, pray heal her!”

14But the LORD said to Moses, “If her father spat in her face, would she not bear her shame for seven days? Let her be shut out of camp for seven days, and then let her be readmitted.” 15So Miriam was shut out of camp seven days; and the people did not march on until Miriam was readmitted. 16After that the people set out from Hazeroth and encamped in the wilderness of Paran.
