1Miriam, and Aaron too, criticised Moses over the Cushite woman he had married. He had indeedmarried a Cushite woman. 2They said, 'Is Moses the only one through whom Yahweh has spoken? Has he not spoken through ustoo?' Yahweh heard this. 3Now Moses was extremely humble, the humblest man on earth. 4Suddenly Yahweh said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, 'Come out, al three of you, to the Tent ofMeeting.' They went, al three of them, 5and Yahweh descended in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the Tent. He cal ed Aaronand Miriam and they both came forward. 6Yahweh said: Listen to my words! if there is a prophet among you, I reveal myself to him in a vision, I speak to him in a dream. 7Not so with my servant Moses; to him my whole household is entrusted; 8to him I speak face to face, plainly and not in riddles, and he sees Yahweh's form. How, then, couldyou dare to criticise my servant Moses? 9Yahweh's anger was aroused by them. He went away, 10and as soon as the cloud left the Tent, there was Miriam covered with a virulent skin-disease, whiteas snow! Aaron turned to look at her and saw that she had contracted a virulent skin-disease. 11Aaron said to Moses: 'Oh, my Lord, please do not punish us for the sin we have been foolishenough to commit. 12Do not let her be like some monster with its flesh half eaten away when it leaves its mother's womb!' 13Moses pleaded with Yahweh. 'O God,' he said, 'I beg you, please heal her!' 14Yahweh then said to Moses, 'If her father had done no more than spit in her face, would she not beunclean for seven days? Have her shut out of the camp for seven days, and then have her brought in again.' 15Miriam was shut out of the camp for seven days. The people did not set out until she returned. 16Then the people moved on from Hazeroth and pitched camp in the desert of Paran.
