And the anger of YHWH was kindled against them; and He departed.

And the great anger of the Lord was upon them, and he departed.

And being angry against them, he went away.

10  And when the cloud was removed from over the Tent, behold, Miriam was leprous, as white as snow; and Aaron looked upon Miriam; and, behold, she was leprous.

10  And the cloud departed from the tabernacle; and, behold, Mariam was leprous, white as snow; and Aaron looked upon Mariam, and, behold, she was leprous.

10  Likewise, the cloud which was over the tabernacle withdrew. And behold, Miriam appeared to be white with a leprosy, like snow. And when Aaron had looked upon her, and he had seen the spreading of the leprosy,

11  And Aaron said unto Moses: 'Oh my lord, lay not, I pray thee, sin upon us, for that we have done foolishly, and for that we have sinned.

11  he said to Moses: “I beg you, my lord, not to impose upon us this sin, which we have committed foolishly.

12  Let her not, I pray, be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.'

12  Let her not be as it were like death, as an abortion coming out of his mother’s womb, when the disease devours the half of the flesh.

12  Do not let this one be like one who is dead, or like an abortion that has been cast from the womb of her mother. Behold, half of her flesh is already consumed by leprosy.”

14  And YHWH said unto Moses: 'If her father had but spit in her face, should she not hide in shame seven days? let her be shut up without the camp seven days, and after that she shall be brought in again.'

14  And the Lord said to Moses, If her father had only spit in her face, would she not be ashamed seven days? let her be set apart seven days without the camp, and afterwards she shall come in.

14  And the Lord answered him: “If her father had spit on her face, should she not have been filled with shame for at least seven days? Let her be separated, outside the camp, for seven days, and after that, she will be called back.”

15  And Miriam was shut up without the camp seven days; and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.

15  And Mariam was separated without the camp seven days; and the people moved not forward till Mariam was cleansed.

15  And so Miriam was excluded from the camp for seven days. And the people did not move from that place, until Miriam was called back.

16  And afterward the people journeyed from Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.

Nm13:1  And the people set out from Hazeroth, and they pitched their tents in the desert of Paran.

16  And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran. And Moses is saying to sons of Israel: You came until the mountain of Amorites that LORD God gave to us. See you, LORD God gave you the land. Now rise and occupy so as spoken LORD God of your fathers to you. But they were afraid and they came to Moses and they said: we shall send mortals from us and they are spying out the land for us. And when they will return they will tell us which was we should ascend there and what cities we will pass upon. And this was good in the eyes of Moses.
