Now it came about at 1midnight that 2the LORDstruckall3the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captivewho was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of 4cattle.
30Pharaoharose in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was 5a greatcry in Egypt, for there was nohomewherethere was not someone dead.
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"Take8both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and go, and bless me also."
339The Egyptiansurged the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, "We will all be dead."
So the peopletook10their doughbefore it was leavened, with their kneadingbowlsbound up in the clothes on their shoulders.
3511Now the sons of Israel had done according to the word of Moses, for they had requested from the Egyptiansarticles of silver and articles of gold, and clothing ;
and the LORD had given the peoplefavor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have their request. Thus they 12plundered the Egyptians.
Now the 13sons of Israeljourneyed from 14Rameses to Succoth, about 15sixhundredthousandmen on foot, aside from children.
A 16mixedmultitudealsowent up with them, balong with flocks and herds, a 17verylargenumber of livestock.
They baked the doughwhich they had brought out of Egypt into cakes of unleavenedbread. For it had not becomeleavened, since they were 18driven out of Egypt and could not delay, nor had they cpreparedanyprovisions for themselves.
Now the timedthat the sons of Israellived in Egypt was 19fourhundred and thirtyyears.
And at the end of fourhundred and thirtyyears, eto 20the veryday, 21all the hosts of the LORDwent out from the land of Egypt.
4222It is a nightfto be observed for the LORD for having brought them out from the land of Egypt ; thisnight is for the LORD, gto be observedhby all the sons of Israel throughout their generations.
The LORDsaid to Moses and Aaron, "This is the ordinance of 23the Passover : noi24foreigner is to eat of it;
but everyman's25slavepurchased with money, after you have circumcised him, then he may eat of it.
"26A sojourner or a hiredservant shall not eat of it.
"It is to be eaten in a singlehouse ; you are not to bringforthany of the fleshoutside of the house, 27nor are you to break any bone of it.
"28All the congregation of Israel are to jcelebrate this.
"But 29if a kstrangersojourns with you, and lcelebrates the Passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him comenear to mcelebrate it; and he shall be like a native of the land. But nouncircumcised person may eat of it.
"n30The samelaw shall oapply to the native as to the pstranger who sojournsamong you."
Then all the sons of Israeldid so; they didjust as the LORD had commandedMoses and Aaron.
And on that sameday31the LORDbrought the sons of Israel out of the land of Egyptq32by their hosts.
