Exodus 12:1-7 GW

1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt,
2 "This month will be the very first month of the year for you.
3 Tell the whole community of Israel: On the tenth [day] of this month each man must take a lamb or a young goat for his family--one animal per household.
4 A household may be too small to eat a whole animal. That household and the one next door can share one animal. Choose your animal based on the number of people and what each person can eat.
5 Your animal must be a one-year-old male that has no defects. You may choose a lamb or a young goat.
6 Take care of it until the fourteenth [day] of this month. "Then at dusk, all the assembled people from the community of Israel must slaughter their animals.
7 They must take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they will eat the animals.
