Exodus 12:1-13

The Passover Lamb

1 Now the LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,
2 "1This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.
3 "Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth of this month they are each one to take a lamb for themselves, according to their fathers' households, a lamb for each household.
4 'Now if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor nearest to his house are to take one according to the number of persons in them; according to what each man should eat, you are to divide the lamb.
5 'Your lamb shall be 2an unblemished male a year old; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats.
6 'You shall keep * it until the 3fourteenth * day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to kill it 4at twilight.
7 '5Moreover, they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.
8 'They shall eat the flesh 6that same night, 7roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with 8unleavened bread 9and bitter herbs.
9 'Do not eat any of it raw or boiled at all with water, but rather * 10roasted with fire, both its head and its legs along with 11its entrails.
10 '12And you shall not leave any of it over until morning, but whatever is left of it until morning, you shall burn with fire.
11 'Now you shall eat it in this manner: with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste -it is 13the LORD'S Passover.
12 'For 14I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and 15against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments -16I am the LORD.
13 '17The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where * you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
