And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
This month [shall be] to you the beginning of months: it [shall be] the first month of the year to you.
Speak ye to all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth [day] of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of [their] fathers, a lamb for a house:
And if the household shall be too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take [it] according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take [it] from the sheep or from the goats:
And ye shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
And they shall take of the blood, and strike [it] on the two side-posts, and on the upper door-post of the houses, in which they shall eat it.
