Numbers 12:1-9 King James Version

Miriam and Aaron Speak against Moses

12 1  And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian [1] 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.
