392. HOW DO WE KNOW THAT ONE COONTRACTS LEPROSY for the evil tongue? Because it is written: "And Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses..." (Bemidbar 12:1) and it is written further: "And Aaron looked upon Miriam, and behold, she was leprous" (Ibid. 10). For false testimony, HOW DO WE KNOW THAT ONE CONTRACTS LEPROSY? We find that Yisrael testified falsely and said, "These are your Elohim, Yisrael" (Shemot 32:4) in a loud voice, as it is written: "There is a noise of war in the camp" (Ibid. 17). Thus, "they put out of the camp everyone with leprosy and everyone that has an issue..." (Bemidbar 5:2). BOTH CASES THE TERM OF "CAMP" IS USED TO INDICATE AN ANALOGY BETWEEN THEM.
