The Passover

1 The LORD spoke to Moses in the Desert of Sinai in the first month1 of the second year after they came out of Egypt.2 He said, 2 "Have the Israelites celebrate the Passover3 at the appointed time.4 3 Celebrate it at the appointed time, at twilight on the fourteenth day of this month,5 in accordance with all its rules and regulations.6" 4 So Moses told the Israelites to celebrate the Passover,7 5 and they did so in the Desert of Sinai8 at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.9 The Israelites did everything just as the LORD commanded Moses.10 6 But some of them could not celebrate the Passover on that day because they were ceremonially unclean11 on account of a dead body.12 So they came to Moses and Aaron13 that same day 7 and said to Moses, "We have become unclean because of a dead body, but why should we be kept from presenting the LORD's offering with the other Israelites at the appointed time?14" 8 Moses answered them, "Wait until I find out what the LORD commands concerning you."15 9 Then the LORD said to Moses, 10 "Tell the Israelites: 'When any of you or your descendants are unclean because of a dead body16 or are away on a journey, they may still celebrate17 the LORD's Passover.
