민수기 5

의식상 부정한 사람들을 진영 밖으로 내보냄

1여호와께서 모세에게 말씀하셨다.

“너는 이스라엘 백성에게 명령하여 모든 문둥병자와 유출병 있는 자와 시체를 만져 부정하게 된 자들을 진영 밖으로 내보내도록 하라.

너는 남자든 여자든 그런 자들을 다 진영 밖으로 내보내 내가 머물고 있는 진영을 더럽히지 않도록 하라.”

그래서 이스라엘 백성은 여호와께서 모세에게 명령하신 대로 그들을 모두 진영 밖으로 내보냈다.

피해 보상에 관한 규정

5-6 여호와께서는 이스라엘 백성에게 이렇 게 전하라고 모세에게 말씀하셨다. “어떤 남자나 여자가 [a]남에게 피해를 입혀 나 여호와에게 신실하지 못하면 그 사람은 죄를 범하였으므로

그 죄를 고백하고 그 피해액에 5분의 을 더하여 피해자에게 배상하라.

그러나 만일 그 피해자가 죽었을 경우 배상금을 받을 가까운 친척이 없으면 그것은 나 여호와의 것이므로 그 사람의 죄를 씻을 속죄의 숫양과 함께 제사장에게 바쳐야 한다.

9-10 이스라엘 백성이 나 여호와에게 드리 려고 제사장에게 가져오는 모든 거룩한 예물은 제사장의 것이니 제사장이 갖도록 하여라.”

아내의 순결이 의심스러울 때

11-12 여호와께서는 이스라엘 백성에게 이 렇게 전하라고 모세에게 말씀하셨다. “만일 어떤 사람의 아내가 간음하여

13 남편에게 탄로되지 않고 증인도 없으며 현장에서 잡히지도 않았지만

14 남편이 아내의 부정을 의심하거나 또 아내가 몸을 더럽히지 않았어도 그녀에 대하여 의심이 생기면

15 남편은 아내를 제사장에게 데리고 가서 그녀를 위해 보릿가루 [b]2.2리터를 바쳐야 한다. 그러나 그 보릿가루에 기름을 붓거나 유향을 넣어서는 안 된다. 이것은 의심하는 남편이 사실을 밝히려고 드리는 예물이기 때문이다.

16 “제사장은 그 여자를 가까이 오게 하여 나 여호와 앞에 세우고

17 토기에 거룩한 물을 담아 거기에 성막 바닥의 티끌을 집어 넣어라.

18 그리고 그 여자의 머리를 풀게 한 후 그 예물을 손에 들게 하고 제사장은 저주를 불러일으킬 쓴물을 들고

19 그녀에게 맹세하게 한 다음 이렇게 말하여라. ‘만일 당신이 간음하지 않았으면 저주를 불러일으킬 이 쓴물로 해를 입지 않을 것입니다.

20 그러나 만일 당신이 간음하였으면

21-22 저주를 불러일으킬 이 물이 당신의 몸에 들어가 배가 부어오르고 당신의 하체가 썩어 문드러질 것입니다.’ 그러면 그 여자는 [c]‘예, 그렇게 되게 하십시오’ 하고 말해야 한다.

23 “그런 후에 제사장은 이 저주의 말을 두루마리에 기록하여 그것을 쓴물에 빨아

24 그 물을 그 여자에게 마시게 하라. [d]그녀가 죄를 지었다면 이 물이 그녀의 몸 속에 들어가 쓰라린 고통을 느끼게 할 것이다.

25 그러나 그 물을 먹이기 전에 제사장은 먼저 그 여자가 들고 있는 보릿가루 예물을 가져다가 나 여호와 앞에서 흔든 다음 제단으로 가지고 가서

26 예물 전체를 바쳤다는 뜻으로 그것을 한 움큼 집어 제단에서 태운 후에 그 물을 마시게 하라.

27 만일 그 여자가 자기 남편을 배신하고 간음하여 더러워졌다면 그 물이 뱃속에 들어갈 때 쓰라린 고통을 느끼게 될 것이며 그 배는 부어오르고 그녀의 하체는 썩어 문드러질 것이다. 그리고 그 여자는 사람들 가운데 저줏거리가 될 것이다.

28 그러나 그 여자가 자신을 더럽히지 않았고 순결하다면 아무런 해도 입지 않을 것이며 그녀는 임신할 수 있을 것이다.

29-30 “이것은 간음하는 아내와 아내를 의심 하는 남편에 관한 법이다. 제사장은 그 여자를 나 여호와 앞에 세우고 이 법을 시행해야 한다.

31 이런 경우에 남편에게는 아무 잘못이 없지만 아내에게 죄가 있으면 그녀는 그 죄의 대가를 받아야 할 것이다.”

Numbers 5

Making the Camp Pure

1The Lord spoke to Moses. He said, “Tell the Israelites that certain people must be sent away from the camp. Command them to send away anyone who has a skin disease. They must send away all those who have liquid waste coming from their bodies. And they must send away those who are ‘unclean’ because they have touched a dead body. That applies to men and women alike. Send them out of the camp. They must not make their camp ‘unclean.’ That is where I live among them.” So the Israelites did what the Lord commanded. They sent out of the camp those who were “unclean.” They did just as the Lord had directed Moses.

Sins Against Others Must Be Paid For

The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites. Say to them, ‘Suppose a man or woman does something wrong to someone else. Then that person is not being faithful to the Lord. People like that are guilty. They must admit they have committed a sin. They must pay in full for what they did wrong. And they must add a fifth of the value to it. Then they must give all of it to the person they have sinned against. But suppose that person has died. And suppose that person does not have a close relative who can be paid for the sin that was committed. Then what is paid belongs to the Lord. It must be given to the priest. A ram must be given along with it. The ram must be sacrificed to the Lord to pay for the sin. All the sacred gifts the Israelites bring to a priest will belong to him. 10 Sacred gifts belong to their owners. But what they give to the priest will belong to the priest.’ ”

The Test for an Unfaithful Wife

11 Then the Lord spoke to Moses again. He said, 12 “Speak to the Israelites. Say to them, ‘Suppose a man’s wife goes astray. And suppose she is not faithful to her husband. 13 Suppose another man has sex with her. And suppose this is hidden from her husband. No one knows she is not “clean.” So there is no witness against her. And she has not been caught in the act. 14 Suppose her husband becomes jealous. He does not trust his wife, and she is really “unclean.” Or suppose he does not trust her even though she is “clean.” 15 Then he must take his wife to the priest. He must also bring an offering. It must be eight cups of barley flour. The offering is for his wife. He must not pour olive oil on it. And he must not put incense on it. It is a grain offering for being jealous. It calls attention to the wrong thing a person has done.

16 “ ‘The priest must have her stand in front of the Lord. 17 He must pour some holy water into a clay jar. He must get some dust from the floor of the holy tent. And he must put it into the water. 18 The priest must have the woman stand in front of the Lord. Then he must untie her hair. He must place in her hands the offering that calls attention to the wrong thing a person has done. It is the grain offering for being jealous. The priest must keep the bitter water with him. It is the water that brings a curse. 19 Then the priest must have the woman give her word. He must say to her, “Suppose no other man has had sex with you. And suppose you haven’t gone astray. You have kept yourself pure while you are married to your husband. Then may the bitter water that brings a curse not harm you. 20 But suppose you have gone astray while you are married to your husband. You have made yourself ‘unclean.’ You have had sex with a man who isn’t your husband.” 21 At that point the priest must put the woman under the curse that will come if she breaks her word. He must say, “May the Lord cause you to become a curse among your people. You will become a curse when the Lord makes your body unable to have children. 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body. May it make your body unable to have children.”

“ ‘Then the woman must say, “Amen. Let it happen.”

23 “ ‘The priest must write the curses on a scroll. He must wash them off in the bitter water. 24 It is the water he will make the woman drink. It is bitter water that brings a curse. It will enter her body. And it will cause her to suffer bitterly. 25 The priest must take from her hands the grain offering for being jealous. He must lift it up and wave it in front of the Lord. He must bring it to the altar. 26 Then the priest must take a handful of the grain offering. It is the offering that calls attention to the wrong thing a person has done. The priest must burn it on the altar. After that, he must have the woman drink the water. 27 Suppose she has made herself “unclean.” She has not been faithful to her husband. And she has drunk the water that brings a curse. Then it will go into her body. It will cause her to suffer bitterly. It will make her body unable to have children. She will become a curse. 28 Suppose the woman has not made herself “unclean.” But suppose she is “clean.” Then she will be free of guilt. And she will be able to have children.

29 “ ‘This is the law about being jealous. It applies to a woman who has gone astray. She has made herself “unclean” while she is married to her husband. 30 And it applies to a man who becomes jealous. He has doubts about his wife. The priest must have her stand in front of the Lord. He must apply the entire law to her. 31 The husband will not be guilty of doing anything wrong. But the woman will be punished for her sin.’ ”
