Allah spoke to Musa and Harun in the land of Egypt, saying, 2“This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you. 3Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, ‘On the tenth day of this month, they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household; 4and if the household be too little for a lamb, then he and his neighbour next to his house shall take one according to the number of the souls; according to what everyone can eat you shall make your count for the lamb. 5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats: 6and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at evening. 7They shall take some of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they shall eat it. 8They shall eat the meat in that night, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread. They shall eat it with bitter herbs. 9Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted with fire; with its head, its legs and its inner parts. 10You shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire. 11This is how you shall eat it: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is Allah’s Passover. 12For I will go through the land of Egypt in that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. Against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am Allah. 13The blood shall be to you for a token on the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and there shall no plague be on you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt. 14This day shall be to you for a memorial, and you shall keep it a feast to Allah: throughout your generations you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.
15Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away yeast out of your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. 16In the first day there shall be to you a holy assembly, and in the seventh day a holy assembly; no manner of work shall be done in them, except that which every man must eat, that only may be done by you. 17You shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread; for in this same day have I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt: therefore you must observe this day throughout your generations by an ordinance forever. 18In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty first day of the month at evening. 19Seven days shall there be no yeast found in your houses, for whoever eats that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a foreigner, or one who is born in the land. 20You shall eat nothing leavened. In all your homes you shall eat unleavened bread.‘”
21Then Musa called for all the elders of Israel, and said to them, “Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover. 22You shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side-posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 23For Allah will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Allah will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you. 24You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever. 25It shall happen when you have come to the land which Allah will give you, according as he has promised, that you shall keep this service. 26It will happen, when your children ask you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’ 27that you shall say, ‘It is the sacrifice of Allah’s Passover, who passed over the houses of Bani-Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians, and spared our houses.‘”
The people bowed their heads and worshiped. 28Bani-Israel went and did so; as Allah had commanded Musa and Harun, so they did.
29It happened at midnight, that Allah struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Firaun who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. 30Firaun rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead. 31He called for Musa and Harun by night, and said, “Rise up, get out from among my people, both you and Bani-Israel; and go, worship Allah, as you have said! 32Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also!“
33The Egyptians were urgent with the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, “We are all dead men.“ 34The people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading-troughs being bound up in their clothes on their shoulders. 35Bani-Israel did according to the word of Musa; and they asked of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and clothing. 36Allah gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. They despoiled the Egyptians.
37Bani-Israel traveled from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot who were men, besides children. 38A mixed multitude went up also with them, with flocks, herds, and even very much cattle. 39They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not wait, neither had they prepared for themselves any food. 40Now the time that Bani-Israel lived in Egypt was four hundred thirty years. 41It happened at the end of four hundred thirty years, even the same day it happened, that all the hosts of Allah went out from the land of Egypt. 42It is a night to be much observed to Allah for bringing them out from the land of Egypt. This is that night of Allah, to be much observed of all Bani-Israel throughout their generations.
43Allah said to Musa and Harun, “This is the ordinance of the Passover. There shall no foreigner eat of it, 44but every man’s servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it. 45A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it. 46In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth anything of the meat abroad out of the house; neither shall you break a bone of it. 47All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. 48When a stranger shall live as a foreigner with you, and will keep the Passover to Allah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one who is born in the land: but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it. 49One law shall be to him who is born at home, and to the stranger who lives as a foreigner among you.“ 50Thus did all Bani-Israel. As Allah commanded Musa and Harun, so they did. 51It happened the same day, that Allah brought Bani-Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts.
