Exodus 12:13-28

Rotherham(i) 13 Then shall the blood serve you for a sign, on the houses wherein ye are, then will I behold the blood, and will pass over you,—and there shall be among you no plague to destroy, when I smite the laud of Egypt. 14 So shall this day serve you for a memorial, and ye shall celebrate it, as a festival to Yahweh,—to your generations—as an age-abiding statute, shall ye celebrate it. 15 Seven days, unleavened cakes, shall ye eat, surely, on the first day, shall ye put away leaven, out of your houses,—for whosoever eateth what is leavened, then shall that soul be cut off out of Israel, from the first day, unto the seventh day. 16 Both on the first day, a holy convocation, and on the seventh day—a holy convocation, shall there be to you,—no work, shall be done therein, save only what must be eaten by every soul, that alone, shall be done by you. 17 So then ye shall observe the unleavened cakes, because on this self-same day, brought I forth your hosts out of the land of Egypt,—so then ye shall observe this day to your generations, as a statute age-abiding, 18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, shall ye eat unleavened cakes,—until the one-and-twentieth day of the month in the evening, 19 For seven days, leaven, shall not be found in your houses,—for, whosoever eateth what is leavened, then shall that soul be cut off out of the assembly of Israel, whether sojourner or native of the land. 20 Nothing leavened, shall ye eat,—in all your dwellings, shall ye eat unleavened cakes. 21 So then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them,—Proceed and take for yourselves one of the flock according to your families, and slay the passover. 22 Then shall ye take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and strike the upper beam and the two door-posts, with the blood which is in the basin,—and, ye, shall not go forth any man out of the entrance of his house, until morning, 23 And Yahweh will pass along to plague the Egyptians, and when he beholdeth the blood upon the upper beam and upon the two door-pests, then will Yahweh pass over the entrance, and not suffer the destroyer to enter into your houses to inflict on you the plague. 24 And ye shall observe this thing,—for a statute to thee and to thy sons unto times age-abiding. 25 And so it shall come to pass when ye shall enter into the land which Yahweh will give you as he hath spoken,—and ye shall observe this service; 26 and it shall come to pass that your sons shall say unto you,—What is this your service? 27 Then shall ye say—A passover sacrifice, it is to Yahweh, who passed-over the houses of the sons of Israel, in Egypt, when he plagued the Egyptians but our houses, he delivered. Then did the people bend their heads and bow themselves down. 28 And the sons of Israel went their way and did,—as Yahweh had commanded Moses and Aaron, so, did they.
