Do not leave any of it till morning;1 if some is left till morning, you must burn it.
This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste;2 it is the LORD's Passover.312
"On that same night I will pass through4 Egypt and strike down5 every firstborn6--both men and animals--and I will bring judgment on all the gods7 of Egypt. I am the LORD.813
The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over9 you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.1014
"This is a day you are to commemorate;11 for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD--a lasting ordinance.1215
For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast.13 On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off14 from Israel.
On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work15 at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat--that is all you may do.
"Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread,16 because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt.17 Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.1818
In the first month19 you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day.
For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And whoever eats anything with yeast in it must be cut off20 from the community of Israel, whether he is an alien21 or native-born.
Eat nothing made with yeast. Wherever you live,22 you must eat unleavened bread."23
