43 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is hthe ordinance of the Passover: No foreigner shall eat it. 44 But every man’s servant who is bought for money, when you have icircumcised him, then he may eat it. 45 jA sojourner and a hired servant shall not eat it. 46 In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, knor shall you break one of its bones. 47 lAll the congregation of Israel shall keep it. 48 And mwhen a stranger 3dwells with you and wants to keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as a native of the land. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. 49 nOne law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger who dwells among you.”
50 Thus all the children of Israel did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. 51 oAnd it came to pass, on that very same day, that the Lord brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt paccording to their armies.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
