[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Exo 12:1 The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in Egypt:
Exo 12:2 "This month is to be the first month of the year for you.
Exo 12:3 Give these instructions to the whole community of Israel: On the tenth day of this month each man must choose either a lamb or a young goat for his household.
Exo 12:4 If his family is too small to eat a whole animal, he and his next-door neighbor may share an animal, in proportion to the number of people and the amount that each person can eat.
Exo 12:5 You may choose either a sheep or a goat, but it must be a one-year-old male without any defects.
Exo 12:6 Then, on the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, the whole community of Israel will kill the animals.
Exo 12:7 The people are to take some of the blood and put it on the doorposts and above the doors of the houses in which the animals are to be eaten.
Exo 12:8 That night the meat is to be roasted, and eaten with bitter herbs and with bread made without yeast.
Exo 12:9 Do not eat any of it raw or boiled, but eat it roasted whole, including the head, the legs, and the internal organs.
Exo 12:10 You must not leave any of it until morning; if any is left over, it must be burned.
Exo 12:11 You are to eat it quickly, for you are to be dressed for travel, with your sandals on your feet and your walking stick in your hand. It is the Passover Festival to honor me, the LORD.
Exo 12:12 "On that night I will go through the land of Egypt, killing every first-born male, both human and animal, and punishing all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD.
Exo 12:13 The blood on the doorposts will be a sign to mark the houses in which you live. When I see the blood, I will pass over you and will not harm you when I punish the Egyptians.
Exo 12:14 You must celebrate this day as a religious festival to remind you of what I, the LORD, have done. Celebrate it for all time to come."
