lamb
or, kid.
The word {seh} means the young of both sheep and goats, and may be indifferently rendered either lamb or kid. It is evident from ver. 5 that the Hebrews might take either; but they generally preferred a lamb, from being of a more gentle nature.

an house
The Israelites were divided into twelve tribes, these tribes into families, the families into houses, and the houses into particular persons.
