Numbers 9:10

Context
9:10 “Tell the Israelites, ‘If any 1  of you or of your posterity become ceremonially defiled by touching a dead body, or are on a journey far away, then he may 2  observe the Passover to the Lord.

1 tn This sense is conveyed by the repetition of “man” – “if a man, a man becomes unclean.”

2 tn The perfect tense with vav (ו) consecutive functions as the equivalent of an imperfect tense. In the apodosis of this conditional sentence, the permission nuance fits well.
