4 ch. 23:15;& 34:18;Deut. 16:1This day came ye out in the month Abib.
5 And it shall be when the Lord shall ch. 3:8bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he ch. 6:8sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, ch. 12:25,26that thou shalt keep this service in this month.
6 ch. 12:15,16Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the Lord.

8 And thou shalt ver. 14;ch. 12:26shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the Lord did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.
9 And it shall be for See ver. 16;Deut. 6:8;Mat. 23:5a 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.
10 ch. 12:14,24Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.

14 ch. 12:26;Deut. 6:20;Josh. 4:6,21And it shall be when thy son asketh thee [d]in time to come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, ver. 3By strength of hand the Lord brought us out from Egypt, from the house of [e]bondage:
15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that ch. 12:29the Lord slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.

17 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people ch. 14:11;Num. 14:1-4repent when they see war, and Deut. 17:16they return to Egypt:
