Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
29 At midnight the LORD smote all the first-born in the land of Egypt, from the first-born of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the first-born of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the first-born of the cattle. 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 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where one was not 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 And he summoned Moses and Aaron by night, and said, "Rise up, go forth from among my people, both you and the people of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as you have 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 have said, and be gone; and bless me also!" 32 Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me."
33 And the Egyptians were urgent with the people, to send them out of the land in haste; for they said, "We are all dead men." 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, their kneading bowls being bound up in their mantles 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 people of Israel had also done as Moses told them, for they had asked of the Egyptians jewelry of silver and of gold, and 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. Thus they despoiled 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 And the people of Israel journeyed from Ram'eses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and 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 multitude also went up with them, and very many cattle, both flocks and herds. 38 Many other people went up with them, as well as large droves of livestock, both flocks and herds.
39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Egypt, for it was not leavened, because they were thrust out of Egypt and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any provisions. 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 people of Israel dwelt in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years. 40 Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypt was 430 years.
41 And at the end of four hundred and thirty years, on that very day, all the hosts 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 It was a night of watching by the LORD, to bring them out of the land of Egypt; so this same night is a night of watching kept to the LORD by all the people of Israel 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 And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "This is the ordinance of 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 every slave that is bought for money may eat of it after you have circumcised him. 44 Any slave you have bought may eat of it after you have circumcised him,
45 No sojourner or hired servant may eat of it. 45 but a temporary resident and a hired worker may not eat of it.
46 In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth any of the flesh outside the house; and you shall not break a bone of it. 46 "It must be eaten inside one house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.
47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. 47 The whole community of Israel must celebrate it.
48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with you and would keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, then he may come near and keep it; he shall be 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 stranger who sojourns among you." 49 The same law applies to the native-born and to the alien living among you."
50 Thus did all the people of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. 50 All the Israelites did just what the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron.
51 And on that very day the LORD brought the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts. 51 And on that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt by their divisions.
