He was really upset and gave to Miriam a leprous hand. And the Bible, I think — and I could be wrong about this — maybe pushing it too far — it points out that her hand was white as snow. Perhaps God is saying to Miriam, “Look, if you are so concerned about Moses’s wife being too dark, I will give you something really light. Noel and I were in Urbana in 1967, and a great missions leader was on a panel. Here is snow called leprosy on your hand.” I think this is a picture of God’s indignation that Moses would be confronted — not as to whether or not the Cushite was a believer — but whether she was the right color or the right ethnicity for the man. Somebody asked him from the audience — they had microphones in those days — “aren’t you concerned in going to Pakistan for so long that your daughter is going to grow up there, fall in love with a Pakistani, and marry a Pakistani? They are from down the Nile River, and we know it caused problems because Miriam, his sister, and Aaron got very angry about this. And he said, “Better a believing Pakistani farmer than a rich unbelieving American banker.” It sank into me that, yes, that’s exactly the right answer. They confronted him in Numbers 12:1 “because of the Cushite woman whom he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman,” the text says. In that anger, as they opposed Moses, God showed his colors.

I’ve got a whole chapter on interracial marriage, and here’s a summary of my argument. I get that from 1 Corinthians , which says, “A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. And my answer to that is that those stipulations in the Old Testament were religiously motivated, not racially motivated.

I said to myself, 'I will confess them to the Lord.' And You forgave me! Now I say that each believer should confess his sins to God when he is aware of them, while there is time to be forgiven. You are my hiding place from every storm of life; You even keep me from getting into trouble!
