NET © Notes

tn In the Hebrew text the noun has no definite article, and so it signifies “some” or “certain” men.

tn The meaning, of course, is to be ceremonially unclean, and therefore disqualified from entering the sanctuary.

tn Or “a human corpse” (so NAB, NKJV). So also in v.7; cf. v. 10.

tn This clause begins with the vav (ו) conjunction and negative before the perfect tense. Here is the main verb of the sentence: They were not able to observe the Passover. The first part of the verse provides the explanation for their problem.
