NKJV 1 Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, NKJV 2 "This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you. NIV 2 "This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. NKJV 3 Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: 'On the tenth day of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. NIV 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household. NKJV 4 And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man's need you shall make your count for the lamb. NIV 4 If any household is too small for a whole lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having taken into account the number of people there are. You are to determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what each person will eat. NKJV 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. NIV 5 The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats. NKJV 6 Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. NIV 6 Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. NKJV 7 And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. NIV 7 Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. NKJV 8 Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. NIV 8 That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast. NKJV 9 Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire--its head with its legs and its entrails. NIV 9 Do not eat the meat raw or cooked in water, but roast it over the fire--head, legs and inner parts. NKJV 10 You shall let none of it remain until morning, and what remains of it until morning you shall burn with fire. NIV 10 Do not leave any of it till morning; if some is left till morning, you must burn it. NKJV 11 And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord's Passover. NIV 11 This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the LORD's Passover. NKJV 12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord. NIV 12 "On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn--both men and animals--and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD. NKJV 13 Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. NIV 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt. NKJV 14 So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance. NIV 14 "This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD--a lasting ordinance. NKJV 15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel. NIV 15 For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel. NKJV 16 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation for you. No manner of work shall be done on them; but that which everyone must eat--that only may be prepared by you. NIV 16 On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat--that is all you may do. NKJV 17 So you shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I will have brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an everlasting ordinance. NIV 17 "Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt. Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. NKJV 18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty-first day of the month at evening. NIV 18 In the first month you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day. NKJV 19 For seven days no leaven shall be found in your houses, since whoever eats what is leavened, that same person shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is a stranger or a native of the land. NIV 19 For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And whoever eats anything with yeast in it must be cut off from the community of Israel, whether he is an alien or native-born. NKJV 20 You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened bread.' " NIV 20 Eat nothing made with yeast. Wherever you live, you must eat unleavened bread." NKJV 21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, "Pick out and take lambs for yourselves according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb. NIV 21 Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, "Go at once and select the animals for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. NKJV 22 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. And none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning. NIV 22 Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. Not one of you shall go out the door of his house until morning. NKJV 23 For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you. NIV 23 When the LORD goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down. NKJV 24 And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever. NIV 24 "Obey these instructions as a lasting ordinance for you and your descendants. NKJV 25 It will come to pass when you come to the land which the Lord will give you, just as He promised, that you shall keep this service. NIV 25 When you enter the land that the LORD will give you as he promised, observe this ceremony. NKJV 26 And it shall be, when your children say to you, 'What do you mean by this service?' NIV 26 And when your children ask you, 'What does this ceremony mean to you?' NKJV 27 that you shall say, 'It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.' " So the people bowed their heads and worshiped. NIV 27 then tell them, 'It is the Passover sacrifice to the LORD, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.' " Then the people bowed down and worshiped. NKJV 28 Then the children of Israel went away and did so; just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. NIV 28 The Israelites did just what the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron. NKJV 29 And it came to pass at midnight that the Lord struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock. NIV 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. NKJV 30 So Pharaoh rose in the night, he, all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead. NIV 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. NKJV 31 Then he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, "Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the Lord as you have said. NIV 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. NKJV 32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also." NIV 32 Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me." NKJV 33 And the Egyptians urged the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste. For they said, "We shall all be dead." NIV 33 The Egyptians urged the people to hurry and leave the country. "For otherwise," they said, "we will all die!" NKJV 34 So the people took their dough before it was leavened, having their kneading bowls bound up in their clothes on their shoulders. NIV 34 So the people took their dough before the yeast was added, and carried it on their shoulders in kneading troughs wrapped in clothing. NKJV 35 Now the children of Israel had done according to the word of Moses, and they had asked from the Egyptians articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing. NIV 35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing. NKJV 36 And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians. NIV 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. NKJV 37 Then the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides children. NIV 37 The Israelites journeyed from Rameses to Succoth. There were about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and children. NKJV 38 A mixed multitude went up with them also, and flocks and herds--a great deal of livestock. NIV 38 Many other people went up with them, as well as large droves of livestock, both flocks and herds. NKJV 39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were driven out of Egypt and could not wait, nor had they prepared provisions for themselves. NIV 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. NKJV 40 Now the sojourn of the children of Israel who lived in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years. NIV 40 Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypt was 430 years. NKJV 41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years--on that very same day--it came to pass that all the armies of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt. NIV 41 At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the LORD's divisions left Egypt. NKJV 42 It is a night of solemn observance to the Lord for bringing them out of the land of Egypt. This is that night of the Lord, a solemn observance for all the children of Israel throughout their generations. NIV 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. NKJV 43 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "This is the ordinance of the Passover: No foreigner shall eat it. NIV 43 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "These are the regulations for the Passover: "No foreigner is to eat of it. NKJV 44 But every man's servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then he may eat it. NIV 44 Any slave you have bought may eat of it after you have circumcised him, NKJV 45 A sojourner and a hired servant shall not eat it. NIV 45 but a temporary resident and a hired worker may not eat of it. NKJV 46 In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, nor shall you break one of its bones. NIV 46 "It must be eaten inside one house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones. NKJV 47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. NIV 47 The whole community of Israel must celebrate it. NKJV 48 And when a stranger dwells with you and wants to keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as a native of the land. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. NIV 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. NKJV 49 One law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger who dwells among you." NIV 49 The same law applies to the native-born and to the alien living among you." NKJV 50 Thus all the children of Israel did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. NIV 50 All the Israelites did just what the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron. NKJV 51 And it came to pass, on that very same day, that the Lord brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt according to their armies. NIV 51 And on that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt by their divisions.
