Bible: Numbers 9:6-10

9:6 It happened that some men 1  who were ceremonially defiled 2  by the dead body of a man 3  could not keep 4  the Passover on that day, so they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day. 9:7 And those men said to him, “We are ceremonially defiled by the dead body of a man; why are we kept back from offering the Lord’s offering at its appointed time among the Israelites? 9:8 So Moses said to them, “Remain 5  here and I will hear 6  what the Lord will command concerning you.”

9:9 The Lord spoke to Moses: 9:10 Tell the Israelites, ‘If any 7  of you or of your posterity become ceremonially defiled by touching a dead body, or are on a journey far away, then he may 8  observe the Passover to the Lord.
