Numbers 12 (WEBP)

[1] Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married; for he had married a Cushite woman.
[2] They said, “Has Yahweh indeed spoken only with Moses? Hasn’t he spoken also with us?” And Yahweh heard it.
[3] Now the man Moses was very humble, more than all the men who were on the surface of the earth.
[4] Yahweh spoke suddenly to Moses, to Aaron, and to Miriam, “You three come out to the Tent of Meeting!” The three of them came out.
[5] Yahweh came down in a pillar of cloud, and stood at the door of the Tent, and called Aaron and Miriam; and they both came forward.
[6] He said, “Now hear my words. If there is a prophet among you, I, Yahweh, will make myself known to him in a vision. I will speak with him in a dream.
[7] My servant Moses is not so. He is faithful in all my house.
[8] With him, I will speak mouth to mouth, even plainly, and not in riddles; and he shall see Yahweh’s form. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses?”
[9] Yahweh’s anger burned against them; and he departed.
[10] The cloud departed from over the Tent; and behold, Miriam was leprous, as white as snow. Aaron looked at Miriam, and behold, she was leprous.
[11] Aaron said to Moses, “Oh, my lord, please don’t count this sin against us, in which we have done foolishly, and in which we have sinned.
[12] Let her not, I pray, be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he comes out of his mother’s womb.”
[13] Moses cried to Yahweh, saying, “Heal her, God, I beg you!”
[14] Yahweh said to Moses, “If her father had but spit in her face, shouldn’t she be ashamed seven days? Let her be shut up outside of the camp seven days, and after that she shall be brought in again.”
[15] Miriam was shut up outside of the camp seven days, and the people didn’t travel until Miriam was brought in again.
[16] Afterward the people traveled from Hazeroth, and encamped in the wilderness of Paran.

Young’s Literal Translation

Numbers 12 (YLT)

[1] And Miriam speaketh-Aaron also-against Moses concerning the circumstance of the Cushite woman whom he had taken: for a Cushite woman he had taken;
[2] and they say, ‘Only by Moses hath Jehovah spoken? also by us hath he not spoken?’ and Jehovah heareth.
[3] And the man Moses is very humble, more than any of the men who are on the face of the ground.
[4] And Jehovah saith suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, ‘Come out ye three unto the tent of meeting;’ and they three come out.
[5] And Jehovah cometh down in the pillar of the cloud, and standeth at the opening of the tent, and calleth Aaron and Miriam, and they come out both of them.
[6] And He saith, ‘Hear, I pray you, My words: If your prophet is of Jehovah-in an appearance unto him I make Myself known; in a dream I speak with him;
[7] not so My servant Moses; in all My house he is stedfast;
[8] mouth unto mouth I speak with him, and by an appearance, and not in riddles; and the form of Jehovah he beholdeth attentively; and wherefore have ye not been afraid to speak against My servant-against Moses?’
[9] And the anger of Jehovah burneth against them, and He goeth on,
[10] and the cloud hath turned aside from off the tent, and lo, Miriam is leprous as snow; and Aaron turneth unto Miriam, and lo, leprous!
[11] And Aaron saith unto Moses, ‘O, my lord, I pray thee, lay not upon us sin in which we have been foolish, and in which we have sinned;
[12] let her not, I pray thee, be as one dead, when in his coming out from the womb of his mother-the half of his flesh is consumed.’
[13] And Moses crieth unto Jehovah, saying, ‘O God, I pray Thee, give, I pray Thee, healing to her.’
[14] And Jehovah saith unto Moses, ‘And her father had but spat in her face-is she not ashamed seven days? she is shut out seven days at the outside of the camp, and afterwards she is gathered.’
[15] And Miriam is shut out at the outside of the camp seven days, and the people hath not journeyed till Miriam is gathered;
[16] and afterwards have the people journeyed from Hazeroth, and they encamp in the wilderness of Paran.
