1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
3 Moses said to the people, “aRemember this day in which you went out from Egypt, from the house of 1slavery; for bby 2a powerful hand the Lord brought you out from this place. cAnd nothing leavened shall be eaten.
4 “On this day in the amonth of Abib, you are about to go forth.
5 “It shall be when the Lord abrings you to the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Hivite and the Jebusite, which bHe swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, cthat you shall 1observe this rite in this month.
6 “For aseven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a feast to the Lord.
8 “aYou shall tell your son on that day, saying, ‘It is because of what the Lord did for me when I came out of Egypt.’
15 ‘It came about, when Pharaoh was stubborn about letting us go, that the aLord killed every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and the firstborn of beast. Therefore, I sacrifice to the Lord the males, the first 1offspring of every womb, but every firstborn of my sons I redeem.’
17 Now when Pharaoh had let the people go, God did not lead them by the way of the land of the Philistines, even though it was near; for God said, “aThe people might change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.”
20 Then they set out from aSuccoth and camped in Etham on the edge of the wilderness.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
