Then Moshe called for all the Zakenim of Yisra'el, and said to them, "Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Pesach.
You shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side-posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning.
For the LORD will pass through to strike the Mitzrim; and when he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two side-posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you.
You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever.
It shall happen when you have come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he has promised, that you shall keep this service.
It will happen, when your children ask you, 'What do you mean by this service?'
that you shall say, 'It is the sacrifice of the LORD's Pesach, who passed over the houses of the children of Yisra'el in Mitzrayim, when he struck the Mitzrim, and spared our houses.'" The people bowed their heads and worshiped.
The children of Yisra'el went and did so; as the LORD had commanded Moshe and Aharon, so they did.
It happened at midnight, that the LORD struck all the firstborn in the land of Mitzrayim, from the firstborn of Par`oh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
Par`oh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Mitzrim; and there was a great cry in Mitzrayim, for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
He called for Moshe and Aharon by night, and said, "Rise up, get out from among my people, both you and the children of Yisra'el; and go, serve the LORD, as you have said!
Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also!"
The Mitzrim were urgent with the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, "We are all dead men."
The people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading-troughs being bound up in their clothes on their shoulders.
The children of Yisra'el did according to the word of Moshe; and they asked of the Mitzrim jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and clothing.
The LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Mitzrim, so that they let them have what they asked. They despoiled the Mitzrim.
The children of Yisra'el journeyed from Ra`meses to Sukkot, about six hundred thousand on foot who were men, besides children.
A mixed multitude went up also with them, with flocks, herds, and even very much cattle.
They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Mitzrayim; for it wasn't leavened, because they were thrust out of Mitzrayim, and couldn't wait, neither had they prepared for themselves any food.
Now the time that the children of Yisra'el lived in Mitzrayim was four hundred thirty years.
It happened at the end of four hundred thirty years, even the same day it happened, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Mitzrayim.
It is a night to be much observed to the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Mitzrayim. This is that night of the LORD, to be much observed of all the children of Yisra'el throughout their generations.
The LORD said to Moshe and Aharon, "This is the ordinance of the Pesach. There shall no foreigner eat of it,
but every man's servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it.
A sojourner and a hired servant shall not eat of it.
In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth anything of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall you break a bone of it.
All the congregation of Yisra'el shall keep it.
When a stranger shall sojourn with you, and will keep the Pesach to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one who is born in the land: but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.
One law shall be to him who is born at home, and to the stranger who sojourns among you."
Thus did all the children of Yisra'el. As the LORD commanded Moshe and Aharon, so they did.
It happened the same day, that the LORD brought the children of Yisra'el out of the land of Mitzrayim by their hosts.
