Exodus 12:1–14

And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, aThis month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a ||lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a ||lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be bwithout blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the cfourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in qthat night, roast with fire, and dunleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of it raw, nor esodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the fpurtenance thereof. 10 gAnd ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. 11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: hit is the Lord’s passover. 12 For I iwill pass through the land of Egypt qthis night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the ||gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: jI am the Lord. 13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. 14 And qthis day shall be unto you kfor a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast lby an ordinance for ever.
