1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
2`Command the sons of Israel, and they send out of the camp every leper, and every one with an issue, and every one defiled
by a body;
3from male unto female ye do send out; unto the outside of the camp ye do send them; and they defile not their camps in the
midst of which I do tabernacle.`
4And the sons of Israel do so, and they send them out unto the outside of the camp; as Jehovah hath spoken unto Moses so
have the sons of Israel done.
5And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
6`Speak unto the sons of Israel, Man or woman, when they do any of the sins of man, by committing a trespass against Jehovah,
and that person [is] guilty,
7and they have confessed their sin which they have done, then he hath restored his guilt in its principal, and its fifth is
adding to it, and hath given [it] to him in reference to whom he hath been guilty.
8`And if the man have no redeemer to restore the guilt to, the guilt which is restored [is] Jehovah`s, the priest`s, apart
from the ram of the atonements, whereby he maketh atonement for him.
9`And every heave-offering of all the holy things of the sons of Israel, which they bring near to the priest, becometh his;
10and any man`s hallowed things become his; that which any man giveth to the priest becometh his.`
11And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
12`Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When any man`s wife turneth aside, and hath committed against
him a trespass,
13and a man hath lain with her [with] the seed of copulation, and it hath been hid from the eyes of her husband, and concealed,
and she hath been defiled, and there is no witness against her, and she hath not been caught,
14and a spirit of jealousy hath passed over him, and he hath been jealous of his wife, and she hath been defiled; -- or, a
spirit of jealousy hath passed over him, and he hath been jealous of his wife, and she hath not been defiled --
15`Then hath the man brought in his wife unto the priest, and he hath brought in her offering for her, a tenth of the ephah
of barley meal, he doth not pour on it oil, nor doth he put on it frankincense, for it [is] a present of jealousy, a present
of memorial, causing remembrance of iniquity.
16`And the priest hath brought her near, and hath caused her to stand before Jehovah,
17and the priest hath taken holy water in an earthen vessel, and of the dust which is on the floor of the tabernacle doth
the priest take, and hath put [it] into the water,
18and the priest hath caused the woman to stand before Jehovah, and hath uncovered the woman`s head, and hath given into her
hands the present of the memorial, it [is] a present of jealousy, and in the hand of the priest are the bitter waters which
cause the curse.
19`And the priest hath caused her to swear, and hath said unto the woman, If no man hath lain with thee, and if thou hast
not turned aside [to] uncleanness under thy husband, be free from these bitter waters which cause the curse;
20and thou, if thou hast turned aside under thy husband, and if thou hast been defiled, and any man doth give his copulation
to thee besides thy husband --
21(then the priest hath caused the woman to swear with an oath of execration, and the priest hath said to the woman) -- Jehovah
doth give thee for an execration, and for a curse, in the midst of thy people, in Jehovah`s giving thy thigh to fall, and
thy belly to swell,
22and these waters which cause the curse have gone into thy bowels, to cause the belly to swell, and the thigh to fall; and
the woman hath said, Amen, Amen.
23`And the priest hath written these execrations in a book, and hath blotted [them] out with the bitter waters,
24and hath caused the woman to drink the bitter waters which cause the curse, and the waters which cause the curse have entered
into her for bitter things.
25`And the priest hath taken out of the hand of the woman the present of jealousy, and hath waved the present before Jehovah,
and hath brought it near unto the altar;
26and the priest hath taken a handful of the present, its memorial, and hath made perfume on the altar, and afterwards doth
cause the woman to drink the water:
27yea, he hath caused her to drink the water, and it hath come to pass, if she hath been defiled, and doth commit a trespass
against her husband, that the waters which cause the curse have gone into her for bitter things, and her belly hath swelled,
and her thigh hath fallen, and the woman hath become an execration in the midst of her people.
28`And if the woman hath not been defiled, and is clean, then she hath been acquitted, and hath been sown [with] seed.
29`This [is] the law of jealousies, when a wife turneth aside under her husband, and hath been defiled,
30or when a spirit of jealousy passeth over a man, and he hath been jealous of his wife, then he hath caused the woman to
stand before Jehovah, and the priest hath done to her all this law,
31and the man hath been acquitted from iniquity, and that woman doth bear her iniquity.`
