Numbers 5:16-18 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16 The priest shall first have the woman come forward and stand before the Lord. 17 In an earthen vessel he shall take holy water,[a] as well as some dust from the floor of the tabernacle and put it in the water. 18 Making the woman stand before the Lord, the priest shall uncover her head and place in her hands the grain offering of remembrance, that is, the grain offering of jealousy, while he himself shall hold the water of bitterness that brings a curse.


  1. 5:17 Holy water: water from the basin that stood in the court of the tabernacle.
