1 And Yahweh spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, The Second Passover. 
2 "Let the people of Israel keep the passover at its appointed time.  
3 On the fourteenth day of this month, in the evening, you shall keep it at its appointed time; according to all its statutes and all its ordinances you shall keep it."  
4 So Moses told the people of Israel that they should keep the passover.  
5 And they kept the passover in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, in the wilderness of Sinai; according to all that Yahweh commanded Moses, so the people of Israel did.  
6 And there were certain men who were unclean through touching the dead body of a man, so that they could not keep the passover on that day; and they came before Moses and Aaron on that day;  
7 and those men said to him, "We are unclean through touching the dead body of a man; why are we kept from offering Yahweh's offering at its appointed time among the people of Israel?"  
8 And Moses said to them, "Wait, that I may hear what Yahweh will command concerning you."  
9 Yahweh said to Moses,  
10 "Say to the people of Israel, If any man of you or of your descendants is unclean through touching a dead body, or is afar off on a journey, he shall still keep the passover to Yahweh.  
11 In the second month on the fourteenth day in the evening they shall keep it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.  
12 They shall leave none of it until the morning, nor break a bone of it; according to all the statute for the passover they shall keep it.  
13 But the man who is clean and is not on a journey, yet refrains from keeping the passover, that person shall be cut off from his people, because he did not offer Yahweh's offering at its appointed time; that man shall bear his sin.  
14 And if a stranger sojourns among you, and will keep the passover to Yahweh, according to the statute of the passover and according to its ordinance, so shall he do; you shall have one statute, both for the sojourner and for the native."  
15 On the day that the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony; and at evening it was over the tabernacle like the appearance of fire until morning.

The fiery cloud. Nu.9.15-23
16 So it was continually; the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.  
17 And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tent, after that the people of Israel set out; and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the people of Israel encamped.  
18 At the command of Yahweh the people of Israel set out, and at the command of Yahweh they encamped; as long as the cloud rested over the tabernacle, they remained in camp.  
19 Even when the cloud continued over the tabernacle many days, the people of Israel kept the charge of Yahweh, and did not set out.  
20 Sometimes the cloud was a few days over the tabernacle, and according to the command of Yahweh they remained in camp; then according to the command of Yahweh they set out.  
21 And sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning; and when the cloud was taken up in the morning, they set out, or if it continued for a day and a night, when the cloud was taken up they set out.  
22 Whether it was two days, or a month, or a longer time, that the cloud continued over the tabernacle, abiding there, the people of Israel remained in camp and did not set out; but when it was taken up they set out.  
23 At the command of Yahweh they encamped, and at the command of Yahweh they set out; they kept the charge of Yahweh, at the command of Yahweh by Moses.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
