12:2 They said, Has Yahweh indeed spoken only with Moses? Hasn`t he spoken also with us? Yahweh heard it.
12:3 Now the man Moses was very humble, above all the men who were on the surface of the earth.
12:4 Yahweh spoke suddenly to Moses, and to Aaron, and to Miriam, Come out you three to the tent of meeting. They three came out.

12:6 He said, Hear now my words: if there be a prophet among you, I Yahweh will make myself known to him in a vision, I will speak with him in a dream.
12:7 My servant Moses is not so; he is faithful in all my house:
12:8 with him will I speak mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark speeches; and the form of Yahweh shall he see: why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses?

12:14 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.
12:15 Miriam was shut up outside of the camp seven days: and the people didn`t travel until Miriam was brought in again.
12:16 Afterward the people journeyed from Hazeroth, and encamped in the wilderness of Paran.
