Exodus 12:3-113Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb aaccording to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household. 4And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb. 5Your lamb shall be bwithout blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, 6and you shall keep it until the cfourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight. ▼

7“Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the etwo doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it. 8They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with funleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but groasted, its head with its legs and its inner parts. 10And hyou shall let none of it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn. 11In this manner you shall eat it: with iyour belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. jIt is the Lord’s Passover.
