Bamidbar (Book of Numbers), Chapter 9
'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 And HaShem spoke unto 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:
'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 'Let the children of Israel keep the passover in its appointed season.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 In the fourteenth day of this month, at dusk, ye shall keep it in its appointed season; according to all the statutes of it, and according to all the ordinances thereof, shall ye keep it.'
'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And Moses spoke unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And they kept the passover in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at dusk, in the wilderness of Sinai; according to all that HaShem commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 But there were certain men, who were unclean by the dead body of a man, so that they could not keep the passover on that day; and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And those men said unto him: 'We are unclean by the dead body of a man; wherefore are we to be kept back, so as not to bring the offering of HaShem in its appointed season among the children of Israel?'
'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 And Moses said unto them: 'Stay ye, that I may hear what HaShem will command concerning you.'
'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 And HaShem spoke unto Moses, saying:
'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 'Speak unto the children of Israel, saying: If any man of you or of your generations shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto HaShem;
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 in the second month on the fourteenth day at dusk they shall keep it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs;
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 they shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break a bone thereof; according to all the statute of the passover they shall keep it.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 But the man that is clean, and is not on a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, that soul shall be cut off from his people; because he brought not the offering of HaShem in its appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto HaShem: according to the statute of the passover, and according to the ordinance thereof, so shall he do; ye shall have one statute, both for the stranger, and for him that is born in the land.'
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, even the tent of the testimony; and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until morning.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it, and the appearance of fire by night.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the Tent, then after that the children of Israel journeyed; and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel encamped.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 At the commandment of HaShem the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of HaShem they encamped: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they remained encamped.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 And when the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of HaShem, and journeyed not.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 And sometimes the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of HaShem they remained encamped, and according to the commandment of HaShem they journeyed.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 And sometimes the cloud was from evening until morning; and when the cloud was taken up in the morning, they journeyed; or if it continued by day and by night, when the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 Whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, abiding thereon, the children of Israel remained encamped, and journeyed not; but when it was taken up, they journeyed.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 At the commandment of HaShem they encamped, and at the commandment of HaShem they journeyed; they kept the charge of HaShem, at the commandment of HaShem by the hand of Moses.
