The Second Passover

In the first month of the second year after their departure from the land of Egypt, the LORD told Moses in the Wilderness of Sinai:

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:2 -

“The Israelites are to observe the Passover at its appointed time.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:3 -

“You must observe it at its appointed time on the fourteenth day of this month at twilight; you are to observe it according to all its statutes and ordinances.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:4 -

So Moses told the Israelites to observe the Passover,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:5 -

and they observed it in the first month on the fourteenth day at twilight in the Wilderness of Sinai. The Israelites did everything as the LORD had commanded Moses.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:6 -

But there were some men who were unclean because of a human corpse, so they could not observe the Passover on that day. These men came before Moses and Aaron the same day

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:7 -

and said to him, “We are unclean because of a human corpse. Why should we be excluded from presenting the LORD’s offering at its appointed time with the other Israelites? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:8 -

Moses replied to them, “Wait here until I hear what the LORD commands for you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:9 -

Then the LORD spoke to Moses:

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:10 -

“Tell the Israelites: When any one of you or your descendants is unclean because of a corpse or is on a distant journey, he may still observe the Passover to the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:11 -

“Such people are to observe it in the second month, on the fourteenth day at twilight. They are to eat the animal with unleavened bread and bitter herbs;

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:12 -

“they may not leave any of it until morning or break any of its bones. They must observe the Passover according to all its statutes.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:13 -

“But the man who is ceremonially clean, is not on a journey, and yet fails to observe the Passover is to be cut off from his people, because he did not present the LORD’s offering at its appointed time. That man will bear the consequences of his sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:14 -

“If an alien resides with you and wants to observe the Passover to the LORD, he is to do it according to the Passover statute and its ordinances. You are to apply the same statute to both the resident alien and the native of the land.”

Guidance by the Cloud
(Exo 13:21, 22; 40:34–38 )
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:15 -

On the day the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony, and it appeared like fire above the tabernacle from evening until morning.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:16 -

It remained that way continuously: the cloud would cover it,[fn] appearing like fire at night.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:17 -

Whenever the cloud was lifted up above the tent, the Israelites would set out; at the place where the cloud stopped, there the Israelites camped.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:18 -

At the LORD’s command the Israelites set out, and at the LORD’s command they camped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle, they camped.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:19 -

Even when the cloud stayed over the tabernacle many days, the Israelites carried out the LORD’s requirement and did not set out.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:20 -

Sometimes the cloud remained over the tabernacle for only a few days. They would camp at the LORD’s command and set out at the LORD’s command.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:21 -

Sometimes the cloud remained only from evening until morning; when the cloud lifted in the morning, they set out. Or if it remained a day and a night, they moved out when the cloud lifted.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:22 -

Whether it was two days, a month, or longer,[fn] the Israelites camped and did not set out as long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle. But when it was lifted, they set out.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 9:23 -

They camped at the LORD’s command, and they set out at the LORD’s command. They carried out the LORD’s requirement according to his command through Moses.
