The Israelites journeyed from Rameses1 to Succoth.2 There were about six hundred thousand men3 on foot, besides women and children.
Many other people4 went up with them, as well as large droves of livestock, both flocks and herds.
With the dough they had brought from Egypt, they baked cakes of unleavened bread. The dough was without yeast because they had been driven out5 of Egypt and did not have time to prepare food for themselves.
Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypta was 430 years.641
At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the LORD's divisions7 left Egypt.842
Because the LORD kept vigil that night to bring them out of Egypt, on this night all the Israelites are to keep vigil to honor the LORD for the generations to come.9
