Numbers 9:22 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Two days - a month - a year - It was by the Divine counsel alone that they were directed in all their peregrinations: and from the above words we see that their times of tarrying at different stations were very unequal.

Then follow laws for the exclusion of the unclean, v. 1-4, for determining the manner and amount of restitution
