9:1 And the LORD spake to Moses
in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year
after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
9:2 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his
9:3 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ya'll shall keep
it in his appointed season according to all the rites of it, and
according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ya'll keep it.
9:4 And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should
keep the passover.
9:5 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first
month at even in the wilderness of Sinai according to all that
the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.
9:6 And there were certain men, who were defiled 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
9:7 And those men said to him, We [are] defiled by the dead
body of a man wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer
an offering of the LORD in his appointed season among the
children of Israel ?
9:8 And Moses said to them, Stand still, and I will hear what
the LORD will command concerning you.
9:9 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
9:10 Speak to 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 he shall keep the passover to the LORD.
9:11 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall
keep it, [and] eat it with unleavened bread and bitter [herbs].
9:12 They shall leave none of it to the morning, nor break any
bone of it according to all the ordinances of the passover they
shall keep it.
9:13 But the man that [is] clean, and is not in a 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.
9:14 And if a stranger shall temporary stays among you, and will keep the
passover to the LORD ; according to the ordinance of the
passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do ya'll
shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that
was born in the land.
The Directing Cloud
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 appearance
of fire, until the morning.
9:16 So it was alway the cloud covered it [by day], and the
appearance of fire by night.
9:17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then
after that the children of Israel journeyed and in the place
where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their
9:18 At the commandment of the 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
9:19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many
days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the LORD,
and journeyed not.
9:20 And [so] it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the
tabernacle ; according to the commandment of the LORD they abode
in their tents, and according to the commandment of the LORD they
9:21 And [so] it was, when the cloud abode from even to the
morning, and [that] the cloud was taken up in the morning, then
they journeyed whether [it was] by day or by night that the cloud
was taken up, they journeyed.
9:22 Or [whether it were] two days, or a month, or a year, that
the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the
children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not but
when it was taken up, they journeyed.
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 hand of
