Numbers chapter 9 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "the (Shekinah) Lord (red radius) spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying, Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a (Perseus) dead body (150°), or be in a (Gemini) journey afar off (210°), yet he shall keep the passover unto the (Shekinah) Lord. The fourteenth day of the second month at (sun on red radius horizon) even they shall keep it, and eat it (Aries - lamb) with (lunar) unleavened bread (150° = 2.5 hours) and (green Milky Way) bitter herbs (+ 60° = 210° or 1 more hour). They shall leave none of it unto the (sun on red radius horizon) morning (360°), nor (red radius) break any (lunar white) bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it" (9:9-12). Therefore the Passover should take about 3.5 hours start to finish.

 

 




A Second Passover

9:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year (1445 B.C.) after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

2 Let the (Gemini) children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.

3 In the fourteenth day of this (lunar) month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.

4 And (Ophiuchus) Moses (red radius) spake unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.

5 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at (sun on red radius line) even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses, so did the (Gemini) children of Israel.

6 And there were certain (Gemini) men, who were defiled by the dead (Perseus) body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before (Ophiuchus) Moses and before (Hercules) Aaron on that day:

7 And those (Gemini) men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body of a (Perseus) man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of the (Shekinah) Lord in his appointed season among the (Gemini) children of Israel?

8 And (Ophiuchus) Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the (Shekinah) Lord will (red radius) command concerning you.

9 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

10 Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a (Perseus) dead body, or be in a (red radius) journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the (Shekinah) Lord.

11 The fourteenth day of the second month at (sun on red radius horizon) even they shall keep it, and eat it with (lunar) unleavened bread and (green Milky Way) bitter herbs.

12 They shall leave none of it unto the (sun on red radius horizon) morning, nor (red radius) break any (lunar) bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.

13 But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be (red radius) cut off from among his (Gemini) people: because he brought not the (Aries) offering of the (Shekinah) Lord in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.

14 And if a (Perseus) stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto the (Shekinah) Lord; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the (Perseus) stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

15 And on the day that the (red radius) tabernacle was reared up the (Milky Way) cloud covered the (red radius) tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at (sun on red radius horizon) even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of (solar) fire, until the (sun on red radius horizon) morning.

16 So it was alway: the (Milky Way) cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of (solar) fire by night.

17 And when the (Milky Way) cloud was taken up from the (red radius) tabernacle, then after that the (Gemini) children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the (Milky Way) cloud abode, there the (Gemini) children of Israel pitched their (red radius) tents.

18 At the (red radius) commandment of the (Shekinah) Lord the (Gemini) children of Israel journeyed, and at the (red radius) commandment of the (Shekinah) Lord they pitched: as long as the (Milky Way) cloud abode upon the (red radius) tabernacle they rested in their (red radius) tents.

19 And when the (Milky Way) cloud tarried long upon the (red radius) tabernacle many days, then the (Gemini) children of Israel kept the charge of the (Shekinah) Lord, and journeyed not.

20 And so it was, when the (Milky Way) cloud was a few days upon the (red radius) tabernacle; according to the (red radius) commandment of the (Shekinah) Lord they abode in their (red radius) tents, and according to the commandment of the (Shekinah) Lord they (red radius) journeyed.

21 And so it was, when the (Milky Way) cloud abode from (sun on red radius horizon) even unto the (sun on red radius horizon) morning, and that the (Milky Way) cloud was taken up in the (sun on red radius horizon) morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the (Milky Way) cloud was taken up, they journeyed.

22 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the (Milky Way) cloud tarried upon the (red radius) tabernacle, remaining thereon, the (Gemini) children of Israel abode in their (red radius) tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they (red radius) journeyed.

23 At the (red radius) commandment of the (Shekinah) Lord they rested in the (red radius) tents, and at the (red radius) commandment of the (Shekinah) Lord they (red radius) journeyed: they kept the charge of the (Shekinah) Lord, at the (red radius) commandment of the (Shekinah) Lord by the hand of (Castor) Moses.
