Exodus 12


1  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Moses4872 and Aaron175 in the land776 of Egypt,4714 saying,559

2  This2088 month2320 shall be unto you the beginning7218 of months:2320 it1931 shall be the first7223 month2320 of the year8141 to you.

3  Speak1696 ye unto413 all3605 the congregation5712 of Israel,3478 saying,559 In the tenth6218 day of this2088 month2320 they shall take3947 to them every man376 a lamb,7716 according to the house1004 of their fathers,1 a lamb7716 for a house:1004

4  And if518 the household1004 be too little4591 for the lamb,4480 1961 4480 7716 let him1931 and his neighbor7934 next7138 unto413 his house1004 take3947 it according to the number4373 of the souls;5315 every man376 according to6310 his eating400 shall make your count3699 for5921 the lamb.7716

5  Your lamb7716 shall be1961 without blemish,8549 a male2145 of the first1121 year:8141 ye shall take it out3947 from4480 the sheep,3532 or from4480 the goats:5795

6  And ye shall keep1961 4931 it up until5704 the fourteenth702 6240 day3117 of the same2088 month:2320 and the whole3605 assembly6951 of the congregation5712 of Israel3478 shall kill7819 it in996 the evening.6153

7  And they shall take3947 of4480 the blood,1818 and strike5414 it on5921 the two8147 side posts4201 and on5921 the upper door post4947 of5921 the houses,1004 wherein834 they shall eat398 it.

8  And they shall eat398 853 the flesh1320 in that2088 night,3915 roast6748 with fire,784 and unleavened bread;4682 and with5921 bitter4844 herbs they shall eat398 it.

9  Eat398 not408 of4480 it raw,4995 nor sodden at all1311 1310 with water,4325 but3588 518 roast6748 with fire;784 his head7218 with5921 his legs,3767 and with5921 the purtenance7130 thereof.

10  And ye shall let nothing3808 of4480 it remain3498 until5704 the morning;1242 and that which remaineth3498 of4480 it until5704 the morning1242 ye shall burn8313 with fire.784

11  And thus3602 shall ye eat398 it; with your loins4975 girded,2296 your shoes5275 on your feet,7272 and your staff4731 in your hand;3027 and ye shall eat398 it in haste:2649 it1931 is the LORD's3068 passover.6453

12  For I will pass through5674 the land776 of Egypt4714 this2088 night,3915 and will smite5221 all3605 the firstborn1060 in the land776 of Egypt,4714 both man4480 120 and beast;929 and against all3605 the gods430 of Egypt4714 I will execute6213 judgment:8201 I589 am the LORD.3068

13  And the blood1818 shall be1961 to you for a token226 upon5921 the houses1004 where834 ye859 are: and when I see7200 853 the blood,1818 I will pass6452 over5921 you, and the plague5063 shall not3808 be1961 upon you to destroy4889 you, when I smite5221 the land776 of Egypt.4714

14  And this2088 day3117 shall be1961 unto you for a memorial;2146 and ye shall keep2287 it a feast2282 to the LORD3068 throughout your generations;1755 ye shall keep it a feast2287 by an ordinance2708 forever.5769

15  Seven7651 days3117 shall ye eat398 unleavened bread;4682 even389 the first7223 day3117 ye shall put away7673 leaven7603 out of your houses:4480 1004 for3588 whosoever3605 eateth398 leavened bread2557 from the first day4480 7223 3117 until5704 the seventh7637 day,3117 that1931 soul5315 shall be cut off3772 from Israel.4480 3478

16  And in the first7223 day3117 there shall be a holy6944 convocation,4744 and in the seventh7637 day3117 there shall be1961 a holy6944 convocation4744 to you; no3808 manner3605 of work4399 shall be done6213 in them, save389 that which834 every3605 man5315 must eat,398 that1931 only905 may be done6213 of you.

17  And ye shall observe8104 853 the feast of unleavened bread;4682 for3588 in this2088 selfsame6106 day3117 have I brought your armies out3318 853 6635 of the land4480 776 of Egypt:4714 therefore shall ye observe8104 853 this2088 day3117 in your generations1755 by an ordinance2708 forever.5769

18  In the first7223 month, on the fourteenth702 6240 day3117 of the month2320 at even,6153 ye shall eat398 unleavened bread,4682 until5704 the one259 and twentieth6242 day3117 of the month2320 at even.6153

19  Seven7651 days3117 shall there be no3808 leaven7603 found4672 in your houses:1004 for3588 whosoever3605 eateth398 that which is leavened,2557 even that1931 soul5315 shall be cut off3772 from the congregation4480 5712 of Israel,3478 whether he be a stranger,1616 or born249 in the land.776

20  Ye shall eat398 nothing3605 3808 leavened;2557 in all3605 your habitations4186 shall ye eat398 unleavened bread.4682

21  Then Moses4872 called7121 for all3605 the elders2205 of Israel,3478 and said559 unto413 them, Draw out4900 and take3947 you a lamb6629 according to your families,4940 and kill7819 the passover.6453

22  And ye shall take3947 a bunch92 of hyssop,231 and dip2881 it in the blood1818 that834 is in the basin,5592 and strike5060 413 the lintel4947 and the two8147 side posts4201 with4480 the blood1818 that834 is in the basin;5592 and none3808 376 of you859 shall go out3318 at the door4480 6607 of his house1004 until5704 the morning.1242

23  For the LORD3068 will pass through5674 to smite5062 853 the Egyptians;4714 and when he seeth7200 853 the blood1818 upon5921 the lintel,4947 and on5921 the two8147 side posts,4201 the LORD3068 will pass6452 over5921 the door,6607 and will not3808 suffer5414 the destroyer7843 to come in935 unto413 your houses1004 to smite5062 you.

24  And ye shall observe8104 853 this2088 thing1697 for an ordinance2706 to thee and to thy sons1121 forever.5704 5769

25  And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 ye be come935 to413 the land776 which834 the LORD3068 will give5414 you, according as834 he hath promised,1696 that ye shall keep8104 853 this2063 service.5656

26  And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 your children1121 shall say559 unto413 you, What4100 mean ye by this2063 service?5656

27  That ye shall say,559 It1931 is the sacrifice2077 of the LORD's3068 passover,6453 who834 passed6452 over5921 the houses1004 of the children1121 of Israel3478 in Egypt,4714 when he smote5062 853 the Egyptians,4714 and delivered5337 our houses.1004 And the people5971 bowed the head6915 and worshiped.7812

28  And the children1121 of Israel3478 went away,1980 and did6213 as834 the LORD3068 had commanded6680 853 Moses4872 and Aaron,175 so3651 did6213 they.

29  And it came to pass,1961 that at midnight2677 3915 the LORD3068 smote5221 all3605 the firstborn1060 in the land776 of Egypt,4714 from the firstborn4480 1060 of Pharaoh6547 that sat3427 on5921 his throne3678 unto5704 the firstborn1060 of the captive7628 that834 was in the dungeon;1004 953 and all3605 the firstborn1060 of cattle.929

30  And Pharaoh6547 rose up6965 in the night,3915 he,1931 and all3605 his servants,5650 and all3605 the Egyptians;4714 and there was1961 a great1419 cry6818 in Egypt;4714 for3588 there was not369 a house1004 where834 8033 there was not369 one dead.4191

31  And he called7121 for Moses4872 and Aaron175 by night,3915 and said,559 Rise up,6965 and get you forth3318 from among4480 8432 my people,5971 both1571 ye859 and1571 the children1121 of Israel;3478 and go,1980 serve5647 853 the LORD,3068 as ye have said.1696

32  Also1571 take3947 your flocks6629 and1571 your herds,1241 as834 ye have said,1696 and be gone;1980 and bless1288 me also.1571

33  And the Egyptians4714 were urgent2388 upon5921 the people,5971 that they might send them out7971 of4480 the land776 in haste;4116 for3588 they said,559 We be all3605 dead4191 men.

34  And the people5971 took5375 853 their dough1217 before2962 it was leavened,2556 their kneading troughs4863 being bound up6887 in their clothes8071 upon5921 their shoulders.7926

35  And the children1121 of Israel3478 did6213 according to the word1697 of Moses;4872 and they borrowed7592 of the Egyptians4480 4714 jewels3627 of silver,3701 and jewels3627 of gold,2091 and raiment:8071

36  And the LORD3068 gave5414 the people5971 853 favor2580 in the sight5869 of the Egyptians,4714 so that they lent7592 unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled5337 853 the Egyptians.4714

37  And the children1121 of Israel3478 journeyed5265 from Rameses4480 7486 to Succoth,5523 about six8337 hundred3967 thousand505 on foot7273 that were men,1397 beside905 children.4480 2945

38  And a mixed6154 multitude7227 went up5927 also1571 with854 them; and flocks,6629 and herds,1241 even very3966 much3515 cattle.4735

39  And they baked644 unleavened4682 cakes5692 of 853 the dough1217 which834 they brought forth3318 out of Egypt,4480 4714 for3588 it was not leavened;3808 2556 because3588 they were thrust out1644 of Egypt,4480 4714 and could3201 not3808 tarry,4102 neither1571 3808 had they prepared6213 for themselves any victual.6720

40  Now the sojourning4186 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 who834 dwelt3427 in Egypt,4714 was four702 hundred3967 and thirty7970 years.8141

41  And it came to pass1961 at the end4480 7093 of the four702 hundred3967 and thirty7970 years,8141 even the selfsame2088 6106 day3117 it came to pass,1961 that all3605 the hosts6635 of the LORD3068 went out3318 from the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

42  It1931 is a night3915 to be much observed8107 unto the LORD3068 for bringing them out3318 from the land4480 776 of Egypt:4714 this2088 is that1931 night3915 of the LORD3068 to be observed8107 of all3605 the children1121 of Israel3478 in their generations.1755

43  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses4872 and Aaron,175 This2063 is the ordinance2708 of the passover:6453 There shall no3808 3605 stranger1121 5236 eat398 thereof:

44  But every3605 man's376 servant5650 that is bought4736 for money,3701 when thou hast circumcised4135 him, then227 shall he eat398 thereof.

45  A foreigner8453 and a hired servant7916 shall not3808 eat398 thereof.

46  In one259 house1004 shall it be eaten;398 thou shalt not3808 carry forth3318 aught of4480 the flesh1320 abroad2351 out of4480 the house;1004 neither3808 shall ye break7665 a bone6106 thereof.

47  All3605 the congregation5712 of Israel3478 shall keep6213 it.

48  And when3588 a stranger1616 shall sojourn1481 with854 thee, and will keep6213 the passover6453 to the LORD,3068 let all3605 his males2145 be circumcised,4135 and then227 let him come near7126 and keep6213 it; and he shall be1961 as one that is born in249 the land:776 for no uncircumcised person3808 3605 6189 shall eat398 thereof.

49  One259 law8451 shall be1961 to him that is homeborn,249 and unto the stranger1616 that sojourneth1481 among8432 you.

50  Thus did6213 all3605 the children1121 of Israel;3478 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 853 Moses4872 and Aaron,175 so3651 did6213 they.

51  And it came to pass1961 the selfsame2088 6106 day,3117 that the LORD3068 did bring3318 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt4714 by5921 their armies.6635


1 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτου λέγων

2 ὁ μὴν οὗτος ὑμῖν ἀρχὴ μηνῶν πρῶτός ἐστιν ὑμῖν ἐν τοῖς μησὶν τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ

3 λάλησον πρὸς πᾶσαν συναγωγὴν υἱῶν Ισραηλ λέγων τῇ δεκάτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς τούτου λαβέτωσαν ἕκαστος πρόβατον κατ᾽ οἴκους πατριῶν ἕκαστος πρόβατον κατ᾽ οἰκίαν

4 ἐὰν δὲ ὀλιγοστοὶ ὦσιν οἱ ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ὥστε μὴ ἱκανοὺς εἶναι εἰς πρόβατον συλλήμψεται μεθ᾽ ἑαυτοῦ τὸν γείτονα τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ κατὰ ἀριθμὸν ψυχῶν ἕκαστος τὸ ἀρκοῦν αὐτῷ συναριθμήσεται εἰς πρόβατον

5 πρόβατον τέλειον ἄρσεν ἐνιαύσιον ἔσται ὑμῖν ἀπὸ τῶν ἀρνῶν καὶ τῶν ἐρίφων λήμψεσθε

6 καὶ ἔσται ὑμῖν διατετηρημένον ἕως τῆς τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτης τοῦ μηνὸς τούτου καὶ σφάξουσιν αὐτὸ πᾶν τὸ πλῆθος συναγωγῆς υἱῶν Ισραηλ πρὸς ἑσπέραν

7 καὶ λήμψονται ἀπὸ τοῦ αἵματος καὶ θήσουσιν ἐπὶ τῶν δύο σταθμῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν φλιὰν ἐν τοῖς οἴκοις ἐν οἷς ἐὰν φάγωσιν αὐτὰ ἐν αὐτοῖς

8 καὶ φάγονται τὰ κρέα τῇ νυκτὶ ταύτῃ ὀπτὰ πυρὶ καὶ ἄζυμα ἐπὶ πικρίδων ἔδονται

9 οὐκ ἔδεσθε ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν ὠμὸν οὐδὲ ἡψημένον ἐν ὕδατι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ὀπτὰ πυρί κεφαλὴν σὺν τοῖς ποσὶν καὶ τοῖς ἐνδοσθίοις

10 οὐκ ἀπολείψετε ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἕως πρωὶ καὶ ὀστοῦν οὐ συντρίψετε ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ τὰ δὲ καταλειπόμενα ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἕως πρωὶ ἐν πυρὶ κατακαύσετε

11 οὕτως δὲ φάγεσθε αὐτό αἱ ὀσφύες ὑμῶν περιεζωσμέναι καὶ τὰ ὑποδήματα ἐν τοῖς ποσὶν ὑμῶν καὶ αἱ βακτηρίαι ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν ὑμῶν καὶ ἔδεσθε αὐτὸ μετὰ σπουδῆς πασχα ἐστὶν κυρίῳ

12 καὶ διελεύσομαι ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ταύτῃ καὶ πατάξω πᾶν πρωτότοκον ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου ἕως κτήνους καὶ ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς θεοῖς τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ποιήσω τὴν ἐκδίκησιν ἐγὼ κύριος

13 καὶ ἔσται τὸ αἷμα ὑμῖν ἐν σημείῳ ἐπὶ τῶν οἰκιῶν ἐν αἷς ὑμεῖς ἐστε ἐκεῖ καὶ ὄψομαι τὸ αἷμα καὶ σκεπάσω ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ἐν ὑμῖν πληγὴ τοῦ ἐκτριβῆναι ὅταν παίω ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ

14 καὶ ἔσται ἡ ἡμέρα ὑμῖν αὕτη μνημόσυνον καὶ ἑορτάσετε αὐτὴν ἑορτὴν κυρίῳ εἰς πάσας τὰς γενεὰς ὑμῶν νόμιμον αἰώνιον ἑορτάσετε αὐτήν

15 ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἄζυμα ἔδεσθε ἀπὸ δὲ τῆς ἡμέρας τῆς πρώτης ἀφανιεῖτε ζύμην ἐκ τῶν οἰκιῶν ὑμῶν πᾶς ὃς ἂν φάγῃ ζύμην ἐξολεθρευθήσεται ἡ ψυχὴ ἐκείνη ἐξ Ισραηλ ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας τῆς πρώτης ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας τῆς ἑβδόμης

16 καὶ ἡ ἡμέρα ἡ πρώτη κληθήσεται ἁγία καὶ ἡ ἡμέρα ἡ ἑβδόμη κλητὴ ἁγία ἔσται ὑμῖν πᾶν ἔργον λατρευτὸν οὐ ποιήσετε ἐν αὐταῖς πλὴν ὅσα ποιηθήσεται πάσῃ ψυχῇ τοῦτο μόνον ποιηθήσεται ὑμῖν

17 καὶ φυλάξεσθε τὴν ἐντολὴν ταύτην ἐν γὰρ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ ἐξάξω τὴν δύναμιν ὑμῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ποιήσετε τὴν ἡμέραν ταύτην εἰς γενεὰς ὑμῶν νόμιμον αἰώνιον

18 ἐναρχομένου τῇ τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ πρώτου ἀφ᾽ ἑσπέρας ἔδεσθε ἄζυμα ἕως ἡμέρας μιᾶς καὶ εἰκάδος τοῦ μηνὸς ἕως ἑσπέρας

19 ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ζύμη οὐχ εὑρεθήσεται ἐν ταῖς οἰκίαις ὑμῶν πᾶς ὃς ἂν φάγῃ ζυμωτόν ἐξολεθρευθήσεται ἡ ψυχὴ ἐκείνη ἐκ συναγωγῆς Ισραηλ ἔν τε τοῖς γειώραις καὶ αὐτόχθοσιν τῆς γῆς

20 πᾶν ζυμωτὸν οὐκ ἔδεσθε ἐν παντὶ δὲ κατοικητηρίῳ ὑμῶν ἔδεσθε ἄζυμα

21 ἐκάλεσεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πᾶσαν γερουσίαν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς ἀπελθόντες λάβετε ὑμῖν ἑαυτοῖς πρόβατον κατὰ συγγενείας ὑμῶν καὶ θύσατε τὸ πασχα

22 λήμψεσθε δὲ δέσμην ὑσσώπου καὶ βάψαντες ἀπὸ τοῦ αἵματος τοῦ παρὰ τὴν θύραν καθίξετε τῆς φλιᾶς καὶ ἐπ᾽ ἀμφοτέρων τῶν σταθμῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ αἵματος ὅ ἐστιν παρὰ τὴν θύραν ὑμεῖς δὲ οὐκ ἐξελεύσεσθε ἕκαστος τὴν θύραν τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ ἕως πρωί

23 καὶ παρελεύσεται κύριος πατάξαι τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους καὶ ὄψεται τὸ αἷμα ἐπὶ τῆς φλιᾶς καὶ ἐπ᾽ ἀμφοτέρων τῶν σταθμῶν καὶ παρελεύσεται κύριος τὴν θύραν καὶ οὐκ ἀφήσει τὸν ὀλεθρεύοντα εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὰς οἰκίας ὑμῶν πατάξαι

24 καὶ φυλάξεσθε τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο νόμιμον σεαυτῷ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου ἕως αἰῶνος

25 ἐὰν δὲ εἰσέλθητε εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ἂν δῷ κύριος ὑμῖν καθότι ἐλάλησεν φυλάξεσθε τὴν λατρείαν ταύτην

26 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν λέγωσιν πρὸς ὑμᾶς οἱ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν τίς ἡ λατρεία αὕτη

27 καὶ ἐρεῖτε αὐτοῖς θυσία τὸ πασχα τοῦτο κυρίῳ ὡς ἐσκέπασεν τοὺς οἴκους τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ἡνίκα ἐπάταξεν τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους τοὺς δὲ οἴκους ἡμῶν ἐρρύσατο καὶ κύψας ὁ λαὸς προσεκύνησεν

28 καὶ ἀπελθόντες ἐποίησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καθὰ ἐνετείλατο κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ καὶ Ααρων οὕτως ἐποίησαν

29 ἐγενήθη δὲ μεσούσης τῆς νυκτὸς καὶ κύριος ἐπάταξεν πᾶν πρωτότοκον ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ἀπὸ πρωτοτόκου Φαραω τοῦ καθημένου ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου ἕως πρωτοτόκου τῆς αἰχμαλωτίδος τῆς ἐν τῷ λάκκῳ καὶ ἕως πρωτοτόκου παντὸς κτήνους

30 καὶ ἀναστὰς Φαραω νυκτὸς καὶ πάντες οἱ θεράποντες αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντες οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι καὶ ἐγενήθη κραυγὴ μεγάλη ἐν πάσῃ γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ οὐ γὰρ ἦν οἰκία ἐν ᾗ οὐκ ἦν ἐν αὐτῇ τεθνηκώς

31 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Φαραω Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων νυκτὸς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἀνάστητε καὶ ἐξέλθατε ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ μου καὶ ὑμεῖς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ βαδίζετε καὶ λατρεύσατε κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν καθὰ λέγετε

32 καὶ τὰ πρόβατα καὶ τοὺς βόας ὑμῶν ἀναλαβόντες πορεύεσθε εὐλογήσατε δὲ κἀμέ

33 καὶ κατεβιάζοντο οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι τὸν λαὸν σπουδῇ ἐκβαλεῖν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῆς γῆς εἶπαν γὰρ ὅτι πάντες ἡμεῖς ἀποθνῄσκομεν

34 ἀνέλαβεν δὲ ὁ λαὸς τὸ σταῖς πρὸ τοῦ ζυμωθῆναι τὰ φυράματα αὐτῶν ἐνδεδεμένα ἐν τοῖς ἱματίοις αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τῶν ὤμων

35 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐποίησαν καθὰ συνέταξεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς καὶ ᾔτησαν παρὰ τῶν Αἰγυπτίων σκεύη ἀργυρᾶ καὶ χρυσᾶ καὶ ἱματισμόν

36 καὶ κύριος ἔδωκεν τὴν χάριν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ ἐναντίον τῶν Αἰγυπτίων καὶ ἔχρησαν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐσκύλευσαν τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους

37 ἀπάραντες δὲ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐκ Ραμεσση εἰς Σοκχωθα εἰς ἑξακοσίας χιλιάδας πεζῶν οἱ ἄνδρες πλὴν τῆς ἀποσκευῆς

38 καὶ ἐπίμικτος πολὺς συνανέβη αὐτοῖς καὶ πρόβατα καὶ βόες καὶ κτήνη πολλὰ σφόδρα

39 καὶ ἔπεψαν τὸ σταῖς ὃ ἐξήνεγκαν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἐγκρυφίας ἀζύμους οὐ γὰρ ἐζυμώθη ἐξέβαλον γὰρ αὐτοὺς οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι καὶ οὐκ ἠδυνήθησαν ἐπιμεῖναι οὐδὲ ἐπισιτισμὸν ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς εἰς τὴν ὁδόν

40 ἡ δὲ κατοίκησις τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἣν κατῴκησαν ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ ἐν γῇ Χανααν ἔτη τετρακόσια τριάκοντα

41 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὰ τετρακόσια τριάκοντα ἔτη ἐξῆλθεν πᾶσα ἡ δύναμις κυρίου ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

42 νυκτὸς προφυλακή ἐστιν τῷ κυρίῳ ὥστε ἐξαγαγεῖν αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐκείνη ἡ νὺξ αὕτη προφυλακὴ κυρίῳ ὥστε πᾶσι τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ εἶναι εἰς γενεὰς αὐτῶν

43 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων λέγων οὗτος ὁ νόμος τοῦ πασχα πᾶς ἀλλογενὴς οὐκ ἔδεται ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ

51 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐξήγαγεν κύριος τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου σὺν δυνάμει αὐτῶν

1 Dixit quoque Dominus ad Moysen et Aaron in terra Ægypti:

2 Mensis iste, vobis principium mensium: primus erit in mensibus anni.

3 Loquimini ad universum cœtum filiorum Israël, et dicite eis: Decima die mensis hujus tollat unusquisque agnum per familias et domos suas.

4 Sin autem minor est numerus ut sufficere possit ad vescendum agnum, assumet vicinum suum qui junctus est domui suæ, juxta numerum animarum quæ sufficere possunt ad esum agni.

5 Erit autem agnus absque macula, masculus, anniculus: juxta quem ritum tolletis et hædum.

6 Et servabitis eum usque ad quartamdecimam diem mensis hujus: immolabitque eum universa multitudo filiorum Israël ad vesperam.

7 Et sument de sanguine ejus, ac ponent super utrumque postem, et in superliminaribus domorum, in quibus comedent illum.

8 Et edent carnes nocte illa assas igni, et azymos panes cum lactucis agrestibus.

9 Non comedetis ex eo crudum quid, nec coctum aqua, sed tantum assum igni: caput cum pedibus ejus et intestinis vorabitis.

10 Nec remanebit quidquam ex eo usque mane; si quid residuum fuerit, igne comburetis.

11 Sic autem comedetis illum: renes vestros accingetis, et calceamenta habebitis in pedibus, tenentes baculos in manibus, et comedetis festinanter: est enim Phase (id est, transitus) Domini.

12 Et transibo per terram Ægypti nocte illa, percutiamque omne primogenitum in terra Ægypti ab homine usque ad pecus: et in cunctis diis Ægypti faciam judicia. Ego Dominus.

13 Erit autem sanguis vobis in signum in ædibus in quibus eritis: et videbo sanguinem, et transibo vos: nec erit in vobis plaga disperdens quando percussero terram Ægypti.

14 Habebitis autem hunc diem in monimentum: et celebrabitis eam solemnem Domino in generationibus vestris cultu sempiterno.

15 Septem diebus azyma comedetis: in die primo non erit fermentum in domibus vestris: quicumque comederit fermentatum, peribit anima illa de Israël, a primo die usque ad diem septimum.

16 Dies prima erit sancta atque solemnis, et dies septima eadem festivitate venerabilis: nihil operis facietis in eis, exceptis his, quæ ad vescendum pertinent.

17 Et observabitis azyma: in eadem enim ipsa die educam exercitum vestrum de terra Ægypti, et custodietis diem istum in generationes vestras ritu perpetuo.

18 Primo mense, quartadecima die mensis ad vesperam, comedetis azyma usque ad diem vigesimam primam ejusdem mensis ad vesperam.

19 Septem diebus fermentum non invenietur in domibus vestris: qui comederit fermentatum, peribit anima ejus de cœtu Israël, tam de advenis quam de indigenis terræ.

20 Omne fermentatum non comedetis: in cunctis habitaculis vestris edetis azyma.

21 Vocavit autem Moyses omnes seniores filiorum Israël, et dixit ad eos: Ite tollentes animal per familias vestras, et immolate Phase.

22 Fasciculumque hyssopi tingite in sanguine qui est in limine, et aspergite ex eo superliminare, et utrumque postem: nullus vestrum egrediatur ostium domus suæ usque mane.

23 Transibit enim Dominus percutiens Ægyptios: cumque viderit sanguinem in superliminari, et in utroque poste, transcendet ostium domus, et non sinet percussorem ingredi domos vestras et lædere.

24 Custodi verbum istud legitimum tibi et filiis tuis usque in æternum.

25 Cumque introieritis terram, quam Dominus daturus est vobis ut pollicitus est, observabitis cæremonias istas.

26 Et cum dixerint vobis filii vestri: Quæ est ista religio?

27 Dicetis eis: Victima transitus Domini est, quando transivit super domos filiorum Israël in Ægypto, percutiens Ægyptios, et domos nostras liberans. Incurvatusque populus adoravit.

28 Et egressi filii Israël fecerunt sicut præceperat Dominus Moysi et Aaron.

29 Factum est autem in noctis medio, percussit Dominus omne primogenitum in terra Ægypti, a primogenito Pharaonis, qui in solio ejus sedebat, usque ad primogenitum captivæ quæ erat in carcere, et omne primogenitum jumentorum.

30 Surrexitque Pharao nocte, et omnes servi ejus, cunctaque Ægyptus: et ortus est clamor magnus in Ægypto: neque enim erat domus in qua non jaceret mortuus.

31 Vocatisque Pharao Moyse et Aaron nocte, ait: Surgite et egredimini a populo meo, vos et filii Israël: ite, immolate Domino sicut dicitis.

32 Oves vestras et armenta assumite ut petieratis, et abeuntes benedicite mihi.

33 Urgebantque Ægyptii populum de terra exire velociter, dicentes: Omnes moriemur.

34 Tulit igitur populus conspersam farinam antequam fermentaretur: et ligans in palliis, posuit super humeros suos.

35 Feceruntque filii Israël sicut præceperat Moyses: et petierunt ab Ægyptiis vasa argentea et aurea, vestemque plurimam.

36 Dominus autem dedit gratiam populo coram Ægyptiis ut commodarent eis: et spoliaverunt Ægyptios.

37 Profectique sunt filii Israël de Ramesse in Socoth, sexcenta fere millia peditum virorum, absque parvulis.

38 Sed et vulgus promiscuum innumerabile ascendit cum eis, oves et armenta et animantia diversi generis multa nimis.

39 Coxeruntque farinam, quam dudum de Ægypto conspersam tulerant: et fecerunt subcinericios panes azymos: neque enim poterant fermentari, cogentibus exire Ægyptiis, et nullam facere sinentibus moram: nec pulmenti quidquam occurrerat præparare.

40 Habitatio autem filiorum Israël qua manserunt in Ægypto, fuit quadringentorum triginta annorum.

41 Quibus expletis, eadem die egressus est omnis exercitus Domini de terra Ægypti.

42 Nox ista est observabilis Domini, quando eduxit eos de terra Ægypti: hanc observare debent omnes filii Israël in generationibus suis.

43 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen et Aaron: Hæc est religio Phase: omnis alienigena non comedet ex eo.

44 Omnis autem servus emptitius circumcidetur, et sic comedet.

45 Advena et mercenarius non edent ex eo.

46 In una domo comedetur, nec efferetis de carnibus ejus foras, nec os illius confringetis.

47 Omnis cœtus filiorum Israël faciet illud.

48 Quod si quis peregrinorum in vestram voluerit transire coloniam, et facere Phase Domini, circumcidetur prius omne masculinum ejus, et tunc rite celebrabit: eritque sicut indigena terræ: si quis autem circumcisus non fuerit, non vescetur ex eo.

49 Eadem lex erit indigenæ et colono qui peregrinatur apud vos.

50 Feceruntque omnes filii Israël sicut præceperat Dominus Moysi et Aaron.

51 Et eadem die eduxit Dominus filios Israël de terra Ægypti per turmas suas.
