Numbers 9:8 Meaning and Commentary

Numbers 9:8

And Moses said unto them, stand still
Where they were; Aben Ezra says, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

and I will hear what the Lord will command concerning you;
as it was a singular case, of which there had been no instance before, Moses would not determine anything about it himself, but would inquire of the Lord his mind and will concerning it; and for that purpose, very probably, went into the most holy place, where the Lord had promised to meet him and commune with him, from off the mercy seat, about any matter of difficulty he should inquire about, ( Exodus 25:22 ) .

Numbers 9:8 In-Context

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
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?"
8 Moses replied to them, "Wait here until I hear what the Lord commands for you."
9 Then the Lord spoke to Moses:
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.
