“And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:14 Spit in her face - That is, expressed some eminent token of indignation and contempt, which was this, #Job 30:10 Isa 50:6|. Ashamed - And withdraw herself, from her father's presence, as Jonathan did upon a like occasion, #1Sam 20:34|. So though God healed her according to Moses's request, yet he would have her publickly bear the shame of her sin, and be a warning to others to keep them from the same transgression.
