“And Moses spake vnto the children of Israel that they should keepe the Passeouer.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. And the Lord spake vnto Moses in the wildernesse of Sinai, in the first moneth of the second yeere; after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying, 2. Let the children of Israel also keepe the Passeouer, at his appointed season. 3. In the fourteenth day of this moneth at euen, ye shall keepe it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof shall ye keepe it. 4. And Moses spake vnto the children of Israel that they should keepe the Passeouer. 5. And they kept the Passeouer on the fourteenth day of the first moneth at Euen, in the wildernesse of Sinai: according to all that the Lord commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel. 6. ¶ And there were certaine men who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keepe the Passeouer on that day: and they came before Moses, and before Aaron on that day. 7. And those men said vnto him, We are defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept backe, that wee may not offer an offring of the Lord in his appointed season among the children of Israel?
