In this chapter the command for keeping the passover is repeated, and
it was accordingly kept, \\#Nu 9:1-5\\; but some persons being defiled and
disqualified for observing it, Moses inquires of the Lord, on their
solicitation, what should be done in such a case, \\#Nu 9:6-8\\; when it
was ordered to be kept by such, and those on journeys, on the
fourteenth day of the second month, but not by others, who were to
observe it according to its first appointment, \\#Nu 9:9-14\\; and an
account is given of the appearance of the cloud by day, and fire by
night, upon the tabernacle, which directed the children of Israel when
to journey, and when to pitch their tents, \\#Nu 9:15-23\\.
