BaMidbar 9 – במדבר ט

1And  יהוה  spoke unto Moshe in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first khodesh of the second year after they were come out of the land of Mitzrayim, saying, 2“Let B’nei Yisra’el keep the Pesakh in its appointed season. 3In the fourteenth day of this khodesh, at dusk, you shall keep it in its appointed season; according to all the Khukot of it, and according to  all  the  Mishpatim thereof shall you keep it.” 4And Moshe spoke unto B’nei Yisra’el, that they should keep the Pesakh. 5And they kept the Pesakh in the first khodesh, on the fourteenth day of the khodesh, at dusk, in the wilderness of Sinai; according to all that  יהוה  commanded Moshe, so did B’nei Yisra’el. 6But there were certain men, who were unclean by the dead body of a man, so that they could not keep the Pesakh on that day; and they came before Moshe and before Aharon on that day. 7And those men said unto him, “We are unclean by the dead body of a man; therefore are we to be kept back, so as not to bring the offering of  יהוה  in its appointed season among B’nei Yisra’el?” 8And Moshe said unto them, “Stay you, that I may hear what  יהוה  will command concerning you.”

9And  יהוה  spoke unto Moshe, saying, 10“Speak unto B’nei Yisra’el, 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 Pesakh unto  יהוה  ; in11 the second khodesh on the fourteenth day, at dusk, they shall keep it; they shall eat it with Matzot and bitter herbs; 12they shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break a bone thereof; according to all the statute of the Pesakh they shall keep it. 13But the man that is clean, and is not on a journey, and forbears to keep the Pesakh, that soul shall be cut off from his people; because he brought not the offering of  יהוה  in its appointed season, that man shall bear his sin. 14And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the Pesakh unto  יהוה , according to the statute of the Pesakh, and according to the ordinance thereof, so shall he do; you shall have one statute, both for the stranger, and for him that is born in the land.” 

15And on the day that the Mishkan was reared up the cloud covered the Mishkan, even the Ohel HaEdut; and at evening there was upon the Mishkan as it were the appearance of fire, until morning. 16So it was always: the cloud covered it, and the appearance of fire by night. 17And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the Ohel, then after that B’nei Yisra’el journeyed; and in the place where the cloud abode, there B’nei Yisra’el encamped. 18By the direction of  יהוה  B’nei Yisra’el journeyed, and by the direction of  יהוה  they encamped: as long as the cloud abode upon the Mishkan they remained encamped. 19And when the cloud tarried upon the Mishkan many days, then B’nei Yisra’el kept the charge of  יהוה , and journeyed not. 20And sometimes the cloud was a few days upon the Mishkan; according to the direction of  יהוה  they remained encamped, and according to the direction of  יהוה  they journeyed. 21And 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. 22Whether it was two days, or a khodesh, or a year that the cloud tarried upon the Mishkan, abiding thereon, B’nei Yisra’el remained encamped, and journeyed not; but when it was taken up, they journeyed. 23By the direction of  יהוה  they encamped, and by the direction of  יהוה  they journeyed; they kept the charge of  יהוה , according to the direction of  יהוה  by the hand of Moshe.
