On Defilement

(cf. Lev 15:1–33 )
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:1 - And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:2 - Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by a dead person:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:3 - both male and female shall ye put out; outside the camp shall ye put them, that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I dwell.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:4 - And the children of Israel did so, and put them outside the camp: as Jehovah had said to Moses, so did the children of Israel.
(Lev 6:1–7 )
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:5 - And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:6 - Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any of all the sins of man to work unfaithfulness against Jehovah, and that soul is guilty,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:7 - then they shall confess their sin which they have done; and he shall recompense his trespass according to the principal thereof, and shall add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:8 - And if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, the trespass which is recompensed to Jehovah shall be the priest's, besides the ram of the atonement, wherewith an atonement is made for him.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:9 - And every heave-offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they present unto the priest, shall be his.

The Adultery Test

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:11 - And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:12 - Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go astray, and commit unfaithfulness against him,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:13 - and a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and she be defiled in secret, and there be no witness against her, and she have not been caught;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:14 - and the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she have been defiled, -- or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she have not been defiled,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:15 - -- then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, a tenth part of an ephah of barley-meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an oblation of jealousy, a memorial oblation, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:19 - And the priest shall adjure her, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone astray in uncleanness, in being with another instead of thy husband, be free from this bitter water that bringeth the curse.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:20 - But if thou hast gone astray to another instead of thy husband, and hast been defiled, and a man other than thy husband have lain with thee,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:21 - -- then the priest shall adjure the woman with the oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman: Jehovah make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when Jehovah doth make thy thigh to shrink, and thy belly to swell;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:22 - and this water that bringeth the curse shall enter into thy bowels, to make the belly to swell, and the thigh to shrink. And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:23 - And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and shall blot them out with the bitter water,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:24 - and he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that bringeth the curse, that the water that bringeth the curse may enter into her for bitterness.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:25 - And the priest shall take out of the woman's hand the oblation of jealousy, and shall wave the oblation before Jehovah, and shall present it at the altar.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 5:31 - Then shall the man be free from iniquity, but that woman shall bear her iniquity.
DBY

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
