Deuteronomy 24:8-9

Context
Respect for Human Dignity

24:8 Be careful during an outbreak of leprosy to follow precisely 1  all that the Levitical priests instruct you; as I have commanded them, so you should do. 24:9 Remember what the Lord your God did to Miriam 2  along the way after you left Egypt.

1 tn Heb “to watch carefully and to do.”

2 sn What the Lord your God did to Miriam. The reference is to Miriam’s having contracted leprosy because of her intemperate challenge to Moses’ leadership (Num 12:1-15). The purpose for the allusion here appears to be the assertion of the theocratic leadership of the priests who, like Moses, should not be despised.
