the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.
3And Moses said unto the people, Remember
this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from
this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
day came ye out in the month Abib.
shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites,
and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep
this service in this month.
6Seven days thou
shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.
7Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither
shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.
thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out
9And it shall be for a sign unto
thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand
hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.
shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.
11And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, as he sware unto
