← Numbers 11   Numbers 13 →

1 And Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses on account of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married; for he had married an Ethiopian woman.

2 And they said, Has Jehovah surely spoken only by Moses? Has He not spoken also by us? And Jehovah heard it.

3 And the man Moses was very meek, more than every man who was on the face of the ground.

4 And Jehovah said suddenly to Moses, and to Aaron, and to Miriam, Come·​·out ye three to the Tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came·​·out.

5 And Jehovah came·​·down in the pillar of cloud, and stood in the entrance of the Tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam; and the two of them came·​·out.

6 And He said, Hear now My words: If there be a prophet among you, I Jehovah will make Myself known to him in a vision; I will speak with him in a dream.

7 Not so is My servant Moses; he is·​·faithful in all My house.

8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, and to the sight, and not in enigmas; and the figure of Jehovah shall he look upon. And wherefore did you not fear to speak against My servant Moses?

9 And the anger of Jehovah was·​·fierce against them; and He went.

10 And the cloud was removed from off the Tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow; and Aaron turned· his ·face unto Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

11 And Aaron said to Moses, In·​·me*, my lord, I pray thee, put not the sin on us, wherein we have been·​·stupid, and wherein we have sinned.

12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half devoured when he comes·​·out of his mother’s womb.

13 And Moses cried to Jehovah, saying, I pray Thee, O God, heal her, I pray thee.

14 And Jehovah said to Moses, If her father spitting had spit in her face, should she not be humiliated seven days? Let her be shut outside from the camp seven days, and afterwards let her be gathered·​·in.

15 And Miriam was shut from outside of the camp seven days; and the people journeyed not until Miriam was gathered·​·in again.

16 And after this the people journeyed from Chazeroth, and encamped in the wilderness of Paran.

Explanation of Numbers 12      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-5. On the opposition of perverted good and perverted truth to Divine Truth in a state of temptation.

Verses 6-9. There is revelation in consequence, showing the distinction between the manifestation of truth to the internal and the external, or to the celestial and spiritual man, and also that the external man is averted from the Lord and ceases to recognize the truth.

Verses 10-12. And then, when truth is revealed without appearances, there is profanation, which, seen and acknowledged, induces a state of repentance.

Verses 13-16. Consequently, there is, internally, a desire for restoration from a state of profanation; and revelation is made that this can only be removed by regeneration successively.
