Numbers 5


5:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
5:2 Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the
 camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whoever
 is defiled by the dead:
5:3 Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp
 shall ye put them; that they defile not their camps, in the
 midst of which I dwell.
5:4 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without
 the camp: as the LORD spoke to Moses, so did the children of
 Israel.
5:5 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
5:6 Speak to the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall
 commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the
 LORD, and that person shall be guilty;
5:7 Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and
 he shall recompense his trespass with the principal of it, and
 add to it the fifth [part] of it, and give [it] to [him]
 against whom he hath trespassed.
5:8 But if the man shall have no kinsman to recompense the
 trespass to, let the trespass be recompensed to the LORD,
 [even] to the priest; besides the ram of the atonement, by
 which an atonement shall be made for him.
5:9 And every offering of all the holy things of the children of
 Israel, which they bring to the priest, shall be his.
5:10 And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatever any
 man giveth to the priest, it shall be his.
5:11 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
5:12 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, If any
 man's wife shall go astray, and commit a trespass against him,
5:13 And a man shall lie with her carnally, and it shall 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];
5:14 And the spirit of jealousy shall come upon him, and he be
 jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of
 jealousy shall come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife,
 and she be not defiled:
5:15 Then shall the man bring his wife to the priest, and he
 shall bring her offering for her, the tenth [part] of an ephah
 of barley-meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put
 frankincense upon it; for it [is] an offering of jealousy, an
 offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
5:16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the
 LORD:
5:17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel;
 and of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle the
 priest shall take, and put [it] into the water:
5:18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and
 uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in
 her hands, which [is] the jealousy-offering: and the priest
 shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:
5:19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say to the
 woman, If no man hath lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone
 aside to uncleanness [with another] instead of thy husband, be
 thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:
5:20 But if thou hast gone aside [to another] instead of thy
 husband, and if thou art defiled, and some man hath lain with
 thee besides thy husband:
5:21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of
 cursing, and the priest shall say to the woman, The LORD make
 thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth
 make thy thigh to perish, and thy belly to swell;
5:22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy
 bowels, to make [thy] belly to swell, and [thy] thigh to
 perish. And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.
5:23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he
 shall blot [them] out with the bitter water:
5:24 And 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.
5:25 Then the priest shall take the jealousy-offering out of the
 woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and
 offer it upon the altar:
5:26 And the priest shall take a handful of the offering, [even]
 the memorial of it, and burn [it] upon the altar, and afterward
 shall cause the woman to drink the water.
5:27 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall
 come to pass, [that], if she is defiled, and hath 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 perish: and the woman shall be a
 curse among her people.
5:28 And if the woman is not defiled, but is clean; then she
 shall be free, and shall conceive seed.
5:29 This [is] the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth astray
 [to another] instead of her husband, and is defiled;
5:30 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he is
 jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD,
 and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.
5:31 Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this
 woman shall bear her iniquity.
