And Jehovah spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
This month shall be unto you the beginning a of months: it shall be the first month of the year b to you.
Speak unto all the assembly c of Israel, saying, On the tenth of this month let them take themselves each a lamb, d for a father's house, a lamb for a house.
And if the household be too small for a lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take [it] according to the number of the souls; each according to [the measure] of his eating shall ye count for the lamb.
Your lamb shall be without blemish, e a yearling male; ye shall take [it] from the sheep, or from the goats.
And ye shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month; and the whole congregation f of the assembly of Israel shall kill it between the two evenings.
