Exodus 12:1 And the LORD <03068> spake <0559> (8799) unto Moses <04872> and Aaron <0175> in the land <0776> of Egypt <04714>, saying <0559> (8800),

2
This month <02320> shall be unto you the beginning <07218> of months <02320>: it shall be the first <07223> month <02320> of the year <08141> to you.

3
Speak <01696> (8761) ye unto all the congregation <05712> of Israel <03478>, saying <0559> (8800), In the tenth <06218> day of this month <02320> they shall take <03947> (8799) to them every man <0376> a lamb <07716>, according to the house <01004> of their fathers <01>, a lamb <07716> for an house <01004>:

4
And if the household <01004> be <01961> (8800) too little <04591> (8799) for the lamb <07716>, let him and his neighbour <07934> next <07138> unto his house <01004> take <03947> (8804) it according to the number <04373> of the souls <05315>; every man <0376> according <06310> to his eating <0400> shall make your count <03699> (8799) for the lamb <07716>.

5
Your lamb <07716> shall be without blemish <08549>, a male <02145> of the first <01121> year <08141>: ye shall take <03947> (8799) it out from the sheep <03532>, or from the goats <05795>:

6
And ye shall keep <04931> it up until the fourteenth <0702> <06240> day <03117> of the same month <02320>: and the whole <03605> assembly <06951> of the congregation <05712> of Israel <03478> shall kill <07819> (8804) it in <0996> the evening <06153>.

7
And they shall take <03947> (8804) of the blood <01818>, and strike <05414> (8804) it on the two <08147> side posts <04201> and on the upper door post <04947> of the houses <01004>, wherein they shall eat <0398> (8799) it.

8
And they shall eat <0398> (8804) the flesh <01320> in that night <03915>, roast <06748> with fire <0784>, and unleavened bread <04682>; and with bitter <04844> herbs they shall eat <0398> (8799) it.

9
Eat <0398> (8799) not of it raw <04995>, nor sodden <01310> (8794) <01311> at all with water <04325>, but roast <06748> with fire <0784>; his head <07218> with his legs <03767>, and with the purtenance <07130> thereof.

10
And ye shall let nothing of it remain <03498> (8686) until the morning <01242>; and that which remaineth <03498> (8737) of it until the morning <01242> ye shall burn <08313> (8799) with fire <0784>.

11
And thus <03602> shall ye eat <0398> (8799) it; with your loins <04975> girded <02296> (8803), your shoes <05275> on your feet <07272>, and your staff <04731> in your hand <03027>; and ye shall eat <0398> (8804) it in haste <02649>: it is the LORD’S <03068> passover <06453>.

12
For I will pass <05674> (8804) through the land <0776> of Egypt <04714> this night <03915>, and will smite <05221> (8689) all the firstborn <01060> in the land <0776> of Egypt <04714>, both man <0120> and beast <0929>; and against all the gods <0430> of Egypt <04714> I will execute <06213> (8799) judgment <08201>: I am the LORD <03068>.

13
And the blood <01818> shall be to you for a token <0226> upon the houses <01004> where ye are: and when I see <07200> (8804) the blood <01818>, I will pass <06452> (8804) over you, and the plague <05063> shall not be upon you to destroy <04889> you, when I smite <05221> (8687) the land <0776> of Egypt <04714>.

14
And this day <03117> shall be unto you for a memorial <02146>; and ye shall keep <02287> (8804) it a feast <02282> to the LORD <03068> throughout your generations <01755>; ye shall keep it a feast <02287> (8799) by an ordinance <02708> for ever <05769>.

15
Seven <07651> days <03117> shall ye eat <0398> (8799) unleavened bread <04682>; even <0389> the first <07223> day <03117> ye shall put away <07673> (8686) leaven <07603> out of your houses <01004>: for whosoever eateth <0398> (8802) leavened bread <02557> from the first <07223> day <03117> until the seventh <07637> day <03117>, that soul <05315> shall be cut <03772> (8738) off from Israel <03478>.

16
And in the first <07223> day <03117> there shall be an holy <06944> convocation <04744>, and in the seventh <07637> day <03117> there shall be an holy <06944> convocation <04744> to you; no manner of work <04399> shall be done <06213> (8735) in them, save <0389> that which every man <05315> must eat <0398> (8735), that only may be done <06213> (8735) of you.

17
And ye shall observe <08104> (8804) the feast of unleavened bread <04682>; for in this selfsame <06106> day <03117> have I brought <03318> (8689) your armies <06635> out of the land <0776> of Egypt <04714>: therefore shall ye observe <08104> (8804) this day <03117> in your generations <01755> by an ordinance <02708> for ever <05769>.

18
In the first <07223> month, on the fourteenth <06240> <0702> day <03117> of the month <02320> at even <06153>, ye shall eat <0398> (8799) unleavened bread <04682>, until the one <0259> and twentieth <06242> day <03117> of the month <02320> at even <06153>.

|19
Seven <07651> days <03117> shall there be no leaven <07603> found <04672> (8735) in your houses <01004>: for whosoever eateth <0398> (8802) that which is leavened <02556> (8688), even that soul <05315> shall be cut off <03772> (8738) from the congregation <05712> of Israel <03478>, whether he be a stranger <01616>, or born <0249> in the land <0776>.

20
Ye shall eat <0398> (8799) nothing leavened <02556> (8688); in all your habitations <04186> shall ye eat <0398> (8799) unleavened bread <04682>.

21
Then Moses <04872> called <07121> (8799) for all the elders <02205> of Israel <03478>, and said <0559> (8799) unto them, Draw out <04900> (8798) and take <03947> (8798) you a lamb <06629> according to your families <04940>, and kill <07819> (8798) the passover <06453>.

22
And ye shall take <03947> (8804) a bunch <092> of hyssop <0231>, and dip <02881> (8804) it in the blood <01818> that is in the bason <05592>, and strike <05060> (8689) the lintel <04947> and the two <08147> side posts <04201> with the blood <01818> that is in the bason <05592>; and none <0376> of you shall go out <03318> (8799) at the door <06607> of his house <01004> until the morning <01242>.

23
For the LORD <03068> will pass through <05674> (8804) to smite <05062> (8800) the Egyptians <04714>; and when he seeth <07200> (8804) the blood <01818> upon the lintel <04947>, and on the two <08147> side posts <04201>, the LORD <03068> will pass over <06452> (8804) the door <06607>, and will not suffer <05414> (8799) the destroyer <07843> (8688) to come <0935> (8800) in unto your houses <01004> to smite <05062> (8800) you.

24
And ye shall observe <08104> (8804) this thing <01697> for an ordinance <02706> to thee and to thy sons <01121> for <05704> ever <05769>.

25
And it shall come to pass, when ye be come <0935> (8799) to the land <0776> which the LORD <03068> will give <05414> (8799) you, according as he hath promised <01696> (8765), that ye shall keep <08104> (8804) this service <05656>.

26
And it shall come to pass, when your children <01121> shall say <0559> (8799) unto you, What mean ye by this service <05656>?

27
That ye shall say <0559> (8804), It is the sacrifice <02077> of the LORD’S <03068> passover <06453>, who passed <06452> (8804) over the houses <01004> of the children <01121> of Israel <03478> in Egypt <04714>, when he smote <05062> (8800) the Egyptians <04714>, and delivered <05337> (8689) our houses <01004>. And the people <05971> bowed the head <06915> (8799) and worshipped <07812> (8691).

28
And the children <01121> of Israel <03478> went away <03212> (8799), and did <06213> (8799) as the LORD <03068> had commanded <06680> (8765) Moses <04872> and Aaron <0175>, so did <06213> (8804) they.

29
And it came to pass, that at midnight <02677> <03915> the LORD <03068> smote <05221> (8689) all the firstborn <01060> in the land <0776> of Egypt <04714>, from the firstborn <01060> of Pharaoh <06547> that sat <03427> (8802) on his throne <03678> unto the firstborn <01060> of the captive <07628> that was in the dungeon <01004> <0953>; and all the firstborn <01060> of cattle <0929>.

30
And Pharaoh <06547> rose up <06965> (8799) in the night <03915>, he, and all his servants <05650>, and all the Egyptians <04714>; and there was a great <01419> cry <06818> in Egypt <04714>; for there was not a house <01004> where there was not one dead <04191> (8801).

31
And he called <07121> (8799) for Moses <04872> and Aaron <0175> by night <03915>, and said <0559> (8799), Rise up <06965> (8798), and get you forth <03318> (8798) from among <08432> my people <05971>, both ye and the children <01121> of Israel <03478>; and go <03212> (8798), serve <05647> (8798) the LORD <03068>, as ye have said <01696> (8763).

32
Also take <03947> (8798) your flocks <06629> and your herds <01241>, as ye have said <01696> (8765), and be gone <03212> (8798); and bless <01288> (8765) me also.

33
And the Egyptians <04714> were urgent <02388> (8799) upon the people <05971>, that they might send <07971> (8763) them out of the land <0776> in haste <04116> (8763); for they said <0559> (8804), We be all dead <04191> (8801) men.

34
And the people <05971> took <05375> (8799) their dough <01217> before it was leavened <02556> (8799), their kneadingtroughs <04863> being bound up <06887> (8803) in their clothes <08071> upon their shoulders <07926>.

35
And the children <01121> of Israel <03478> did <06213> (8804) according to the word <01697> of Moses <04872>; and they borrowed <07592> (8799) of the Egyptians <04714> jewels <03627> of silver <03701>, and jewels <03627> of gold <02091>, and raiment <08071>:

36
And the LORD <03068> gave <05414> (8804) the people <05971> favour <02580> in the sight <05869> of the Egyptians <04714>, so that they lent <07592> (8686) unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled <05337> (8762) the Egyptians <04714>.

37
And the children <01121> of Israel <03478> journeyed <05265> (8799) from Rameses <07486> to Succoth <05523>, about six <08337> hundred <03967> thousand <0505> on foot <07273> that were men <01397>, beside <0905> children <02945>.

38
And a mixed <06154> multitude <07227> went up <05927> (8804) also with them; and flocks <06629>, and herds <01241>, even very <03966> much <03515> cattle <04735>.

39
And they baked <0644> (8799) unleavened <04682> cakes <05692> of the dough <01217> which they brought forth <03318> (8689) out of Egypt <04714>, for it was not leavened <02556> (8804); because they were thrust out <01644> (8795) of Egypt <04714>, and could <03201> (8804) not tarry <04102> (8699), neither had they prepared <06213> (8804) for themselves any victual <06720>.

40
Now the sojourning <04186> of the children <01121> of Israel <03478>, who dwelt <03427> (8804) in Egypt <04714>, was four <0702> hundred <03967> <08141> and thirty <07970> years <08141>.

41
And it came to pass at the end <07093> of the four <0702> hundred <03967> <08141> and thirty <07970> years <08141>, even the selfsame <06106> day <03117> it came to pass, that all the hosts <06635> of the LORD <03068> went out <03318> (8804) from the land <0776> of Egypt <04714>.

42
It is a night <03915> to be much observed <08107> unto the LORD <03068> for bringing <03318> (8687) them out from the land <0776> of Egypt <04714>: this is that night <03915> of the LORD <03068> to be observed <08107> of all the children <01121> of Israel <03478> in their generations <01755>.

43
And the LORD <03068> said <0559> (8799) unto Moses <04872> and Aaron <0175>, This is the ordinance <02708> of the passover <06453>: There shall no stranger <01121> <05236> eat <0398> (8799) thereof:

44
But every man’s <0376> servant <05650> that is bought <04736> for money <03701>, when thou hast circumcised <04135> (8804) him, then shall he eat <0398> (8799) thereof.

45
A foreigner <08453> and an hired servant <07916> shall not eat <0398> (8799) thereof.

46
In one <0259> house <01004> shall it be eaten <0398> (8735); thou shalt not carry forth <03318> (8686) ought of the flesh <01320> abroad <02351> out of the house <01004>; neither shall ye break <07665> (8799) a bone <06106> thereof.

47
All the congregation <05712> of Israel <03478> shall keep <06213> (8799) it.

48
And when a stranger <01616> shall sojourn <01481> (8799) with thee, and will keep <06213> (8804) the passover <06453> to the LORD <03068>, let all his males <02145> be circumcised <04135> (8736), and then let him come near <07126> (8799) and keep <06213> (8800) it; and he shall be as one that is born <0249> in the land <0776>: for no uncircumcised person <06189> shall eat <0398> (8799) thereof.

49
One <0259> law <08451> shall be to him that is homeborn <0249>, and unto the stranger <01616> that sojourneth <01481> (8802) among <08432> you.

50
Thus did <06213> (8799) all the children <01121> of Israel <03478>; as the LORD <03068> commanded <06680> (8765) Moses <04872> and Aaron <0175>, so did <06213> (8804) they.

51
And it came to pass the selfsame <06106> day <03117>, that the LORD <03068> did bring <03318> (8689) the children <01121> of Israel <03478> out of the land <0776> of Egypt <04714> by their armies <06635>.
