1 Locutaque est Maria et Aaron contra Moysen propter uxorem eius Aethiopissam
2 et dixerunt: "Num per solum Moysen locutus est Dominus? Nonne et per nos similiter est locutus?" Quod cum audisset Dominus
3 erat enim Moyses vir humillimus super omnes homines, qui morabantur in terra
4 statim locutus est ad eum et ad Aaron et Mariam: "Egredimini vos tantum tres ad tabernaculum conventus" Cumque fuissent egressi,
5 descendit Dominus in columna nubis et stetit in introitu tabernaculi vocans Aaron et Mariam. Qui cum issent,
6 dixit ad eos: "Audite sermones meos! Si quis fuerit inter vos propheta Domini, in visione apparebo ei vel per somnium loquar ad illum.
7 At non talis servus meus Moyses, qui in omni domo mea fidelissimus est!
8 Ore enim ad os loquor ei, et palam et non per aenigmata et figuras Dominum videt! Quare ergo non timuistis detrahere servo meo Moysi?"
9 Iratusque contra eos abiit,
10 nubes quoque recessit, quae erat super tabernaculum; et ecce Maria apparuit candens lepra quasi nix. Cumque respexisset eam Aaron et vidisset perfusam lepra,
11 ait ad Moysen: "Obsecro, domine mi, ne imponas nobis hoc peccatum, quod stulte commisimus,
12 ne fiat haec quasi mortua et ut abortivum, quod proicitur de vulva matris suae; ecce iam medium carnis eius devoratum est a lepra"
13 Clamavitque Moyses ad Dominum dicens: "Deus, obsecro, sana eam!"
14 Cui respondit Dominus: "Si pater eius spuisset in faciem illius, nonne debuerat saltem septem diebus rubore suffundi? Separetur septem diebus extra castra et postea revocabitur"
15 Exclusa est itaque Maria extra castra septem diebus, et populus non est motus de loco illo, donec revocata est Maria.
16 Profectusque est populus de Aseroth, fixis tentoriis in deserto Pharan.
King James Version
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.
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.
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.
