View In My Bible
29 Now it came about at 1midnight that 2the LORD struck all 3the 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 4cattle. 30 Pharaoh arose in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was 5a great cry in Egypt, for there was no home where there was not someone dead. 31 Then 6he called for Moses and Aaron at night and said, "Rise up, 7get out from among my people, both you and the sons of Israel; and go, aworship the LORD, as you have said. 32 "Take 8both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and go, and bless me also."

Exodus of Israel

33 9The 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 10their dough before it was leavened, with their kneading bowls bound up in the clothes on their shoulders. 35 11Now 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 12plundered the Egyptians. 37 Now the 13sons of Israel journeyed from 14Rameses to Succoth, about 15six hundred thousand men on foot, aside from children. 38 A 16mixed multitude also went up with them, balong with flocks and herds, a 17very 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 18driven out of Egypt and could not delay, nor had they cprepared any provisions for themselves. 40 Now the time dthat the sons of Israel lived in Egypt was 19four hundred and thirty years. 41 And at the end of four hundred and thirty years, eto 20the very day, 21all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Ordinance of the Passover

42 22It is a night fto be observed for the LORD for having brought them out from the land of Egypt; this night is for the LORD, gto be observed hby all the sons of Israel throughout their generations. 43 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "This is the ordinance of 23the Passover: no i24foreigner is to eat of it; 44 but every man's 25slave purchased with money, after you have circumcised him, then he may eat of it. 45 "26A 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, 27nor are you to break any bone of it. 47 "28All the congregation of Israel are to jcelebrate this. 48 "But 29if a kstranger sojourns with you, and lcelebrates the Passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near to mcelebrate it; and he shall be like a native of the land. But no uncircumcised person may eat of it. 49 "n30The same law shall oapply to the native as to the pstranger 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 31the LORD brought the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt q32by their hosts.
