|Nu 5:1||The unclean are removed out of camp. |
¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp1 every leper, and every2 one that hath an issue, and whosoever3 is defiled by the dead:
Both male and female shall ye put out, without4 the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not5 their camps, in the midst6 whereof I dwell.
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.
|Nu 5:5||Restitution is to be made in trespass. |
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, When7 a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the LORD, and that person8 be guilty;
Then they shall confess9 their sin which they have done: and he shall10 recompense his trespass with the principal11 thereof, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed.
But if the man have no12 kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, even to the priest; beside the ram13 of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him.
And every offering14 of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they bring unto the priest, shall be his.
¶ And every man's hallowed things15 shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth the priest, it shall be his.
|Nu 5:11||The trial of jealousy. |
¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
16Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,
17And 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;
18And 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:
Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her,19 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, bringing20 iniquity to remembrance.
And the priest shall bring her near21, and set her before the LORD:
And the priest shall take holy water22 in an earthen vessel; and of the dust23 that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water:
And the priest24 shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover25 the woman's head, and put26 the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water27 that causeth the curse:
And the priest shall charge her28 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 another29 instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:
¶ 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:
Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath30 of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make31 thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot32, and thy belly to swell;
And this water that causeth the curse shall go into33 thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman34 shall say, Amen35, amen.
And the priest shall write these36 curses in a book, and he shall blot37 them out with the bitter water:
38And 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.
Then the priest39 shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave40 the offering before the LORD, and offer it upon the altar:
41And 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.
And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled42, 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 woman43 shall be a curse among her people.
And if44 the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall45 conceive seed.
This is the law46 of jealousies, when a wife goeth47 aside to another instead of her husband, and is defiled;
¶ Or when the spirit48 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.
Then shall the man be guiltless49 from iniquity, and this woman shall bear50 her iniquity.
