1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month in the second year after they were come·​·out of the land of Egypt, saying,

2 Let the sons of Israel then make the Passover at its appointed·​·time.

3 In the fourteenth day in this month, between the two·​·evenings*, you shall make it in its appointed·​·time; according·​·to all its statutes, and according·​·to all its judgments, you shall make it.

4 And Moses spoke to the sons of Israel, that they should make the Passover.

5 And they did the Passover on the fourteenth day on the first of the month between the two·​·evenings in the wilderness of Sinai; according·​·to all that Jehovah commanded Moses, so the sons of Israel did.

6 And there were certain men, who became unclean by the soul of man*, and they were· not ·able to make the Passover on that day; and they came·​·near before Moses and before Aaron on that day:

7 and those men said to him, We are unclean because of the soul of man; why are we diminished, that we may not offer an offering of Jehovah in its appointed·​·time in the midst of the sons of Israel?

8 And Moses said to them, Stand, and I will hear what Jehovah will command as·​·to you.

9 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

10 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, If a man, any man of you or of your generations, when he be unclean as·​·to the soul, or be on the way far·​·off, yet he shall make the Passover to Jehovah.

11 In the second month, in the fourteenth day, between the two·​·evenings they shall make it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

12 They shall leave none of it to the morning, nor break a bone of it; according·​·to all the statutes of the Passover they shall make it.

13 But the man, he who is clean, and is not on the way*, and forbears to do the Passover, then that soul shall be cut·​·off from his people, for he offered not the offering of Jehovah in its appointed·​·time; that man shall bear his sin.

14 And when a sojourner shall sojourn with you, then he will make the Passover to Jehovah; according·​·to the statute of the Passover, and according·​·to its judgment, so shall he do; there shall be one statute for you, and for the sojourner, and for the native of the land.

15 And on the day that the Habitation was raised·​·up the cloud covered the Habitation of the Tabernacle of the testimony; and in the evening there was upon the Habitation as·​·it·​·were the appearance of fire, until the morning.

16 So it was continually; the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

17 And when* the cloud was made to go·​·up from on the Tabernacle, then after·​·that the sons of Israel journeyed; and in the place where the cloud inhabited, there the sons of Israel encamped.

18 By the mouth of Jehovah the sons of Israel journeyed, and by the mouth of Jehovah they encamped; all the days that the cloud abided upon the Habitation* they encamped.

19 And when the cloud was·​·long upon the Habitation many days, then the sons of Israel kept the charge of Jehovah, and journeyed not.

20 And it·​·was that the cloud was a number of days on the Habitation; by the mouth of Jehovah they encamped, and by the mouth of Jehovah they journeyed.

21 And it·​·was, that the cloud was there from evening until morning, and the cloud was made to go·​·up in the morning, and they journeyed; either by·​·day or by night, and the cloud was made to go·​·up, and they journeyed.

22 Or whether two·​·days, or a month, or many days, when the cloud was·​·long on the Habitation, abiding thereon, the sons of Israel encamped, and journeyed not; but when it was made to go·​·up, they journeyed.

23 By the mouth of Jehovah they encamped, and by the mouth of Jehovah they journeyed; they kept the charge of Jehovah, by the mouth of Jehovah by the hand of Moses.
