29 At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the prisoner who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of 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 arose in the night, he and all his officials and all the Egyptians; and there was a loud cry in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead. 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 Then he summoned Moses and Aaron in the night, and said, "Rise up, go away from my people, both you and the Israelites! Go, worship the Lord, as you said. 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 Take your flocks and your herds, as you said, and be gone. And bring a blessing on me too!" 32 Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me."
33 The Egyptians urged the people to hasten their departure from the land, for they said, "We shall all be dead." 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 it was leavened, with their kneading bowls wrapped up in their cloaks on their shoulders. 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 The Israelites had done as Moses told them; they had asked the Egyptians for jewelry of silver and gold, and for clothing, 35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing.
36 and the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. And so they plundered 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 journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides children. 37 The Israelites journeyed from Rameses to Succoth. There were about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and children.
38 A mixed crowd also went up with them, and livestock in great numbers, both flocks and herds. 38 Many other people went up with them, as well as large droves of livestock, both flocks and herds.
39 They baked unleavened cakes of the dough that they had brought out of Egypt; it was not leavened, because they were driven out of Egypt and could not wait, nor had they prepared any provisions for themselves. 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 time that the Israelites had lived in Egypt was four hundred thirty years. 40 Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypt was 430 years.
41 At the end of four hundred thirty years, on that very day, all the companies of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt. 41 At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the LORD's divisions left Egypt.
42 That was for the Lord a night of vigil, to bring them out of the land of Egypt. That same night is a vigil to be kept for the Lord by all the Israelites throughout their generations. 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 said to Moses and Aaron: This is the ordinance for the passover: no foreigner shall eat of it, 43 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "These are the regulations for the Passover: "No foreigner is to eat of it.
44 but any slave who has been purchased may eat of it after he has been circumcised; 44 Any slave you have bought may eat of it after you have circumcised him,
45 no bound or hired servant may eat of it. 45 but a temporary resident and a hired worker may not eat of it.
46 It shall be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the animal outside the house, and you shall not break any of its 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 congregation of Israel shall celebrate it. 47 The whole community of Israel must celebrate it.
48 If an alien who resides with you wants to celebrate the passover to the Lord, all his males shall be circumcised; then he may draw near to celebrate it; he shall be regarded as a native of the land. But no uncircumcised person shall eat of 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 there shall be one law for the native and for the alien who resides among you. 49 The same law applies to the native-born and to the alien living among you."
50 All the Israelites did just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron. 50 All the Israelites did just what the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron.
51 That very day the Lord brought the Israelites out of the land of Egypt, company by company. 51 And on that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt by their divisions.
