12 Then aMiriam and Aaron 1spoke bagainst Moses because of the 2Ethiopian woman whom he had married; for che had married an Ethiopian woman. 2 So they said, “Has the Lord indeed spoken only through dMoses? eHas He not spoken through us also?” And the Lord fheard it. 3 (Now the man Moses was very humble, more than all men who were on the face of the earth.)
4 gSuddenly the Lord said to Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the tabernacle of meeting!” So the three came out. 5 hThen the Lord came down in the pillar of cloud and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam. And they both went forward. 6 Then He said,
“Hear now My words:
If there is a prophet among you,
I, the Lord, make Myself known to him iin a vision;
I speak to him jin a dream.
7 Not so with kMy servant Moses;
8 I speak with him nface to face,
And he sees pthe form of the Lord.
Why then qwere you not afraid
To speak against My servant Moses?”
