The Passover Lamb1 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of ▼
▼ Lit Egypt, sayingEgypt, 2 b “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you. 3 “Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, ‘On the tenth of this month they are each one to take a ▼ lamb for themselves, according to their fathers’ households, a ▼ lamb for ▼
▼ Lit theeach household. 4 ‘Now if the household is too small for a ▼ lamb, then he and his neighbor nearest to his house are to take one according to the ▼
▼ Or amountnumber of persons in them; according to ▼
▼ Lit each man’s eatingwhat each man should eat, you are to ▼
▼ Lit compute fordivide the lamb. 5 ‘Your ▼ lamb shall be k an unblemished male a year old; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. 6 ‘ ▼
▼ Lit It shall be to you for a guardingYou shall keep it until the m fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to kill it ▼
▼ Lit between the two evenings, o at twilight. 7 ‘ p Moreover, they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel ▼
▼ Lit uponof the houses in which they eat it. 8 ‘They shall eat the flesh r that same night, s roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with t unleavened bread ▼
▼ Lit in addition to, v and bitter herbs. 9 ‘Do not eat any of it raw or boiled at all with water, but rather w roasted with fire, both its head and its legs along with x its entrails. 10 ‘ y And you shall not leave any of it over until morning, but whatever is left of it until morning, you shall burn with fire. 11 ‘Now you shall eat it in this manner: with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste— it is z the Lord’s Passover. 12 ‘For aa I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and ab against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments— ac I am the Lord. 13 ‘ ad The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you ▼
▼ Lit arelive; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you ▼
▼ Lit for destructionto destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
Feast of Unleavened Bread14 ‘Now ag this day will be ah a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as ▼
▼ Or an eternal, aj a permanent ordinance. 15 ‘ ak Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, but on the first day you shall ▼
▼ Lit cause to ceaseremove leaven from your houses; for whoever eats anything leavened from the first day until the seventh day, am that ▼
▼ Lit soulperson shall be cut off from Israel. 16 ‘ ao On the first day you shall have a holy assembly, and another holy assembly on the seventh day; no work at all shall be done on them, except what must be eaten ▼
▼ Lit pertaining toby every person, that alone may be ▼
▼ Lit doneprepared by you. 17 ‘You shall also observe ar the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this as very day I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt; therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as at a ▼
▼ Or eternalpermanent ordinance. 18 ‘ av In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty-first day of the month at evening. 19 ‘ aw Seven days there shall be no leaven found in your houses; for whoever eats what is leavened, that ▼
▼ Lit soul, ay person shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is an alien or a native of the land. 20 ‘You shall not eat anything leavened; in all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened bread.’” 21 Then az Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, ▼
▼ Lit Draw out“Go and bb take for yourselves ▼
▼ Lit sheeplambs according to your families, and slay bd the Passover lamb. 22 be “You shall take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and ▼
▼ Lit cause to touchapply some of the blood that is in the basin to the lintel and the two doorposts; and none of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning.
A Memorial of Redemption23 “For bg the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and will bh not allow the bi destroyer to come in to your houses to smite you. 24 “And bj you shall observe this event as an ordinance for you and your children forever. 25 “When you enter the land which the Lord will give you, as He has ▼
▼ Lit spokenpromised, you shall observe this ▼
▼ Lit servicerite. 26 bm “And when your children say to you, ‘ ▼
▼ Lit What is this service to you?What does this rite mean to you?’ 27 you shall say, ‘It is a Passover sacrifice to bo the Lord ▼
▼ Lit because Hewho passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but ▼
▼ Lit deliveredspared our homes.’” br And the people bowed low and worshiped. 28 Then the sons of Israel went and did so; just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. 29 Now it came about at bs midnight that bt the Lord struck all bu the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of bv cattle. 30 Pharaoh arose in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was bw a great cry in Egypt, for there was no home where there was not someone dead. 31 Then bx he called for Moses and Aaron at night and said, “Rise up, by get out from among my people, both you and the sons of Israel; and go, ▼
▼ Or serveworship the Lord, as you have said. 32 “Take ca both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and go, and bless me also.”
Exodus of Israel33 cb The Egyptians urged the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, “We will all be dead.” 34 So the people took cc their dough before it was leavened, with their kneading bowls bound up in the clothes on their shoulders. 35 cd Now the sons of Israel had done according to the word of Moses, for they had requested from the Egyptians articles of silver and articles of gold, and clothing; 36 and the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have their request. Thus they ce plundered the Egyptians. 37 Now the cf sons of Israel journeyed from cg Rameses to Succoth, about ch six hundred thousand men on foot, aside from children. 38 A ci mixed multitude also went up with them, ▼
▼ Lit andalong with flocks and herds, a ck very large number of livestock. 39 They baked the dough which they had brought out of Egypt into cakes of unleavened bread. For it had not become leavened, since they were cl driven out of Egypt and could not delay, nor had they ▼
▼ Lit madeprepared any provisions for themselves. 40 Now the time ▼
▼ Or of the sons of Israel who dweltthat the sons of Israel lived in Egypt was co four hundred and thirty years. 41 And at the end of four hundred and thirty years ▼
▼ Lit that it happened on this very dayto cq the very day cr all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.
Ordinance of the Passover42 cs It is a night ▼
▼ Or of vigilto be observed for the Lord for having brought them out from the land of Egypt; this night is for the Lord ▼
▼ Or of vigilto be observed ▼
▼ Lit to the sonsby all the sons of Israel throughout their generations. 43 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the ordinance of cw the Passover: no ▼
▼ Lit son of a stranger, cy foreigner is to eat of it; 44 but every man’s cz slave purchased with money, after you have circumcised him, then he may eat of it. 45 da “A sojourner or a hired servant shall not eat of it. 46 “It is to be eaten in a single house; you are not to bring forth any of the flesh outside of the house, db nor are you to break any bone of it. 47 dc “All the congregation of Israel are to ▼
▼ Lit docelebrate this. 48 “But de if a ▼

▼ Lit doescelebrates the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near to ▼
▼ Lit docelebrate it; and he shall be like a native of the land. But no uncircumcised person may eat of it. 49 ▼
▼ Lit One law, dj “The same law shall ▼
▼ Lit beapply to the native as to the ▼
▼ Lit sojournerstranger who sojourns among you.” 50 Then all the sons of Israel did so; they did just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron. 51 And on that same day dm the Lord brought the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt ▼
