Exodus 12:29–51

29 Now it came about at amidnight that bthe Lord struck all cthe 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 dcattle.

30 Pharaoh arose in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was aa great cry in Egypt, for there was no home where there was not someone dead.

31 Then ahe called for Moses and Aaron at night and said, “Rise up, bget out from among my people, both you and the sons of Israel; and go, 1worship the Lord, as you have said.

32 “Take aboth your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and go, and bless me also.”

Exodus of Israel

33 aThe 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 atheir dough before it was leavened, with their kneading bowls bound up in the clothes on their shoulders.

35 aNow 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 aplundered the Egyptians.

37 Now the asons of Israel journeyed from bRameses to Succoth, about csix hundred thousand men on foot, aside from children.

38 A amixed multitude also went up with them, 1along with flocks and herds, a bvery 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 adriven out of Egypt and could not delay, nor had they 1prepared any provisions for themselves.

40 Now the time 1that the sons of Israel lived in Egypt was afour hundred and thirty years.

41 And at the end of four hundred and thirty years, 1to athe very day, ball the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.

Ordinance of the Passover

42 aIt is a night 1to be observed for the Lord for having brought them out from the land of Egypt; this night is for the Lord, 1to be observed 2by all the sons of Israel throughout their generations.

43 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the ordinance of athe Passover: no 1bforeigner is to eat of it;

44 but every man’s aslave purchased with money, after you have circumcised him, then he may eat of it.

45 aA 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, anor are you to break any bone of it.

47 aAll the congregation of Israel are to 1celebrate this.

48 “But aif a 1stranger sojourns with you, and 2celebrates the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near to 3celebrate it; and he shall be like a native of the land. But no uncircumcised person may eat of it.

49 1aThe same law shall 2apply to the native as to the 3stranger 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 athe Lord brought the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt 1bby their hosts.
