New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
29 At midnight the LORD struck down every oldest son in Egypt. He killed the oldest son of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne. He killed all of the oldest sons of prisoners, who were in prison. He also killed all of the male animals that were born first to their mothers among the livestock. 29 At midnight the LORD struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well.
30 Pharaoh and all of his officials got up during the night. So did all of the Egyptians. There was loud crying in Egypt because someone had died in every home. 30 Pharaoh and all his officials and all the Egyptians got up during the night, and there was loud wailing in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead.
31 During the night, Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron. He said to them, "Get out of here! You and the Israelites, leave my people! Go. Worship the Lord, just as you have asked. 31 During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the LORD as you have requested.
32 Go. Take your flocks and herds, just as you have said. And also give me your blessing." 32 Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me."
33 The Egyptians begged the people of Israel to hurry up and leave the country. "If you don't," they said, "we'll all die!" 33 The Egyptians urged the people to hurry and leave the country. "For otherwise," they said, "we will all die!"
34 So the people took their dough before the yeast was added to it. They carried it on their shoulders in bread pans that were wrapped in clothes. 34 So the people took their dough before the yeast was added, and carried it on their shoulders in kneading troughs wrapped in clothing.
35 They did just as Moses had directed them. They asked the Egyptians for articles that were made out of silver and gold. They also asked them for clothes. 35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing.
36 The LORD had caused the Egyptians to treat the people of Israel in a kind way. So they gave them what they asked for. The people of Israel took many expensive things that belonged to the Egyptians. 36 The LORD had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians.
37 The Israelites traveled from Rameses to Succoth. There were about 600,000 men who were old enough to go into battle. The women and children went with them. 37 The Israelites journeyed from Rameses to Succoth. There were about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and children.
38 So did many other people. The Israelites also took large flocks and herds with them. 38 Many other people went up with them, as well as large droves of livestock, both flocks and herds.
39 They brought dough from Egypt. With it they baked bread without yeast. The dough didn't have any yeast in it. That's because the people had been driven out of Egypt before they had time to prepare their food. 39 With the dough they had brought from Egypt, they baked cakes of unleavened bread. The dough was without yeast because they had been driven out of Egypt and did not have time to prepare food for themselves.
40 The people of Israel lived in Egypt for 430 years. 40 Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypt was 430 years.
41 At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all of the LORD's people marched out of Egypt like an army. 41 At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the LORD's divisions left Egypt.
42 The LORD kept watch that night to bring them out of Egypt. So on that same night every year all of the Israelites must keep watch. They must do it to honor the LORD for all time to come. 42 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.
43 The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron. He said, "Here are the rules for the Passover. "No one from another country is allowed to eat the Passover meal. 43 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "These are the regulations for the Passover: "No foreigner is to eat of it.
44 Any slave you have bought is allowed to eat it after you have circumcised him. 44 Any slave you have bought may eat of it after you have circumcised him,
45 But a hired worker or someone who lives with you for a while is not allowed to eat it. 45 but a temporary resident and a hired worker may not eat of it.
46 "It must be eaten inside a house. Do not take any of the meat outside. Do not break any of the bones. 46 "It must be eaten inside one house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.
47 The whole community of Israel must celebrate the Passover. 47 The whole community of Israel must celebrate it.
48 "Suppose an outsider who is living among you wants to celebrate the LORD's Passover. Then all of the males in that home must be circumcised. After that, the person can take part, just like an Israelite. Only males who are circumcised can eat it. 48 "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. No uncircumcised male may eat of it.
49 "The same law applies to Israelites and to outsiders who are living among you." 49 The same law applies to the native-born and to the alien living among you."
50 All of the people of Israel did just what the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron. 50 All the Israelites did just what the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron.
51 On that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt like an army on the march. 51 And on that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt by their divisions.
