(5742) Rashi: (Num. 9:1): "In the first month" The disgrace to Israel that [throughout the forty years the children of Israel were in the desert,] they brought only this Passover sacrifice alone.
"In the first month: The portion at the beginning of the Book [of Numbers] was not said until Iyar. [From this], you learn that there is no chronological order in the Torah. But why did Scripture not begin with this [chapter]? For it is a disgrace to Israel that throughout the forty years the children of Israel were in the desert, they brought only this Passover sacrifice alone. — [Sifrei Beha’alothecha 1:18]
