At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the LORD's divisions1 left Egypt.242
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.3
The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "These are the regulations for the Passover:4 "No foreigner5 is to eat of it.
Any slave you have bought may eat of it after you have circumcised6 him,
but a temporary resident and a hired worker7 may not eat of it.
"It must be eaten inside one house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.847
The whole community of Israel must celebrate it.
"An alien living among you who wants to celebrate the LORD's Passover must have all the males in his household circumcised; then he may take part like one born in the land.9 No uncircumcised10 male may eat of it.
The same law applies to the native-born and to the alien11 living among you."
All the Israelites did just what the LORD had commanded12 Moses and Aaron.
And on that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt13 by their divisions.14
