Numbers 9

Chapter 9

9:3 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to a all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.

(a) Even in all points as the Lord has instituted it.
9:6 And there were certain men, who were defiled b by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:
(b) By touching a corpse, or being at the burial.
9:7 And those men said unto him, We [are] defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not c offer an offering of the LORD in his appointed season among the children of Israel?
(c) Or, celebrate the Passover the fourteenth day of the first month.
9:10 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or [be] in a journey afar off, yet d he shall keep the passover unto the LORD.
(d) And cannot come where the tabernacle is, when others keep it.
9:11 The fourteenth day of the e second month at even they shall keep it, [and] eat it with unleavened bread and bitter [herbs].
(e) So that the unclean and those who are not at home, have a month longer granted to them.
9:13 But the man that [is] clean, and is not in a f journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the LORD in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.
(f) When the Passover is celebrated.
9:15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, [namely], the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the g appearance of fire, until the morning.

(g) Like a pillar, read ( Exodus 13:21 Exodus 13:22 ).
9:18 At the commandment of the h LORD the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the LORD they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.
(h) Who taught them what to do by the cloud.
9:19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the i charge of the LORD, and journeyed not.
(i) They waited when the Lord would signify either their departure, or their abode by the cloud.
9:23 At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed: they kept the charge of the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the k hand of Moses.
(k) Under the charge and government of Moses.
