13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lokd brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the cast wind brought the locusts.

14 And m the locusts went up over all the laud of Egypt, and rested In all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; "before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.

15 For they "covered the face of the whole earth, 60 that the land was darkened; and they Pdid cat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egvpt.

16 1 Then Pharaoh + called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, il have sinned against the Loud your God, and against you.

17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and rcutreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this death only.

18 And he 'went out from Pharaoh, and entreated the Lord.

19 And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and tcast them 'into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.

20 But the Lord "hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

21 1 And the Lord said unto Moses, "Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, tcven darkness which may be felt,

22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a fthick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: «but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

24 % And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and asaid, Go ye, serve the Lord; only let your Hocks and your herds be stayed: let your 'little ones also go with you.

25 And Moses said, Thou must give tus also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not a hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and we know not w ith what we must serve the Lord, until we come thither.

27 1 But the Lord chardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go.

28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou sccst my face thou shalt die.

29 And Moses said, Thou hast Spokcu well, JI will see thy face again no more.

AND the Lord said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go heuce: 'when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.

2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, b jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.

3 c And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover, the man 'Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.

i And Moses said, Thus saith the Lord, 'About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:

II lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house:

4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

5 Your lamb shall be b without blemish, a male tof the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

6 And ye shall keep it up until the c fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it tin the evening.

7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and dunleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, butc roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenanee thereof

10 f And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which reinaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

11II And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: s it is the Lord's passover.

12 For I Mvill pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and"against all the II gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: k I am the Loud.

13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you tto destroy you, when I smite the land ot Egypt.

14 And this day shall be unto you 'for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a "feast to the Lord throughout your generations: ye shall keep it a feast "by an ordinance for ever.

19 'Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, "even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a'stranger, or born in the land.

20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ve eat unleavened bread.

21Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, * Draw out and take you a II lamb according to your families, and kill the passover. j£2 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and 2 strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that in in the basin; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

23 aFor the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he sceth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and bwill not suffer cthe destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.

27 That ye shall say, 'It is the sacrifice of the Lord's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people showed the head and worshipped.

28 And the children of Israel went away, and hdid as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

29 1 'And it came to pass, that at midnight Mlie Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the tdungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

30 And Pharaoh 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.

31II And "he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people,0 both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said.

32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and I bless me also.

33 rAnd the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, 1 We be all dead men.

34 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their I kneadingt roughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.

85 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:

30 "And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required: and >they spoiled the Egyptians.

37 If And y the children of Israel journeyed from zKameses to Suceoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.

38 And ta mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

43 If And the Lord said unto Moses and Aaron, This is 'the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:

44 But every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou hast e circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.

45 A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat thereof.

40 In one house shall it be eaten; thou Shalt not carry forth aught of the flesh abroad out of the house; 'neither shall ye break a bone thereof.

47 kAll the congregation of Israel shall t keep it.

48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uucircumcised person shall eat thereof.

49 "One law shall be to him that is honieborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

16 And it shall be for »a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the Lord brought us forth out of Egypt.

17 1 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 per.idventure the people1 repent when they see war, and y they return to Egypt:

18 But God 'led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up 'I harnessed out of the laud of Egypt.

4 And e I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow after them; and I 'will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; (that the Egyptians may know that I am the "lord. And they did so.
