1 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen dicens:
2 "Praecipe filiis Israel, ut eiciant de castris omnem leprosum et qui semine fluit pollutusque est super mortuo.
3 Tam masculum quam feminam eicite de castris, ne contaminent ea, cum habitaverim cum eis"
4 Feceruntque ita filii Israel et eiecerunt eos extra castra, sicut locutus erat Dominus Moysi.
5 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen dicens:
6 "Loquere ad filios Israel: Vir sive mulier, cum fecerint ex omnibus peccatis, quae solent hominibus accidere, et fraude transgressi fuerint mandatum Domini, ille homo reus erit;
7 et confitebuntur peccatum suum et reddent ipsum caput quintamque partem desuper ei, in quem peccaverint.
8 Sin autem non fuerit qui recipiat, dabunt Domino, et erit sacerdotis, praeter arietem, qui offertur pro expiatione, ut sit placabilis hostia.
9 Omnis quoque praelibatio rerum sacrarum, quas offerunt filii Israel, ad sacerdotem pertinet;
10 et, quidquid in sanctuarium offertur a singulis et traditur manibus sacerdotis, ipsius erit"
11 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen dicens:
12 "Loquere ad filios Israel et dices ad eos: Vir, cuius uxor erraverit maritumque decipiens
13 dormierit cum altero viro, et hoc maritus deprehendere non quiverit, sed latet quod impuram se reddiderit et testibus argui non potest, quia non est inventa in stupro,
14 si spiritus zelotypiae concitaverit virum contra uxorem suam, quae vel polluta est vel falsa suspicione appetitur,
15 adducet eam ad sacerdotem et offeret oblationem pro illa decimam partem ephi farinae hordeaceae. Non fundet super eam oleum nec imponet tus, quia sacrificium zelotypiae est et oblatio investigans adulterium.
16 Afferet igitur eam sacerdos et statuet coram Domino;
17 assumetque aquam sanctam in vase fictili et pauxillum terrae de pavimento habitaculi mittet in eam.
18 Cumque posuerit sacerdos mulierem in conspectu Domini, discooperiet caput eius et ponet super manus illius sacrificium recordationis, oblationem zelotypiae; ipse autem tenebit aquas amarissimas, in quibus cum exsecratione maledicta congessit.
19 Adiurabitque eam et dicet: "Si non dormivit vir alienus tecum, et si non declinasti a viro tuo et non polluta es, deserto mariti toro, non te nocebunt aquae istae amarissimae, in quas maledicta congessi.
20 Sin autem declinasti a viro tuo atque polluta es et concubuisti cum altero viro",
21 adiurabit eam sacerdos iuramento maledictionis: "Det te Dominus in maledictionem, iuramentum in medio populi tui; putrescere faciat femur tuum, et tumens uterus tuus disrumpatur;
22 ingrediantur aquae maledictae in ventrem tuum, et utero tumescente putrescat femur!". Et respondebit mulier: "Amen, amen".
23 Scribetque sacerdos in libello ista maledicta et delebit ea aquis amarissimis
24 et dabit ei bibere aquas amaras, in quas maledicta congessit, et ingredientur in eam aquae maledictionis, quae amarae fient;
25 tollet sacerdos de manu eius sacrificium zelotypiae et agitabit illud coram Domino imponetque illud super altare;
26 pugillum sacrificii tollat de eo, quod offertur in memoriale, et incendat super altare; et deinde potum det mulieri aquas amarissimas.
27 Quas cum biberit, si polluta est et, contempto viro, adulterii rea, pertransibunt eam aquae maledictionis et, inflato ventre, computrescet femur; eritque mulier in maledictionem omni populo eius.
28 Quod si polluta non fuerit sed munda, erit innoxia et faciet liberos"
29 Ista est lex zelotypiae, si declinaverit mulier a viro suo et si polluta fuerit,
30 maritusque zelotypiae spiritu concitatus adduxerit eam in conspectu Domini, et fecerit ei sacerdos iuxta omnia, quae scripta sunt;
31 maritus absque culpa erit, et illa recipiet iniquitatem suam.
King James Version
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead:
3 Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I dwell.
4 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp: as the LORD spake unto Moses, so did the children of Israel.
5 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
6 Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the LORD, and that person be guilty;
7 Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed.
8 But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, even to the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him.
9 And every offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they bring unto the priest, shall be his.
10 And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth the priest, it shall be his.
11 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,
13 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner;
14 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:
15 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD:
17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water:
18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:
19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:
20 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:
21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;
22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.
23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water:
24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter.
25 Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and offer it upon the altar:
26 And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water.
27 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.
28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.
29 This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside to another instead of her husband, and is defiled;
30 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.
31 Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity.
