14 “This is a day you are to commemorate;(A) for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord—a lasting ordinance.(B) 15 For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast.(C) On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off(D) from Israel. 16 On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work(E) at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat; that is all you may do.

17 “Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread,(F) because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt.(G) Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.(H) 18 In the first month(I) you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day. 19 For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And anyone, whether foreigner(J) or native-born, who eats anything with yeast in it must be cut off(K) from the community of Israel. 20 Eat nothing made with yeast. Wherever you live,(L) you must eat unleavened bread.”(M)

The Passover(A)

16 “‘On the fourteenth day of the first month the Lord’s Passover(B) is to be held. 17 On the fifteenth day of this month there is to be a festival; for seven days(C) eat bread made without yeast.(D) 18 On the first day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.(E) 19 Present to the Lord a food offering(F) consisting of a burnt offering of two young bulls, one ram and seven male lambs a year old, all without defect.(G) 20 With each bull offer a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah(H) of the finest flour mixed with oil; with the ram, two-tenths;(I) 21 and with each of the seven lambs, one-tenth.(J) 22 Include one male goat as a sin offering(K) to make atonement for you.(L) 23 Offer these in addition to the regular morning burnt offering. 24 In this way present the food offering every day for seven days as an aroma pleasing to the Lord;(M) it is to be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. 25 On the seventh day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.

The Passover(A)

16 Observe the month of Aviv(B) and celebrate the Passover(C) of the Lord your God, because in the month of Aviv he brought you out of Egypt by night. Sacrifice as the Passover to the Lord your God an animal from your flock or herd at the place the Lord will choose as a dwelling for his Name.(D) Do not eat it with bread made with yeast, but for seven days eat unleavened bread, the bread of affliction,(E) because you left Egypt in haste(F)—so that all the days of your life you may remember the time of your departure from Egypt.(G) Let no yeast be found in your possession in all your land for seven days. Do not let any of the meat you sacrifice on the evening(H) of the first day remain until morning.(I)

You must not sacrifice the Passover in any town the Lord your God gives you except in the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name. There you must sacrifice the Passover in the evening, when the sun goes down, on the anniversary[a](J) of your departure from Egypt. Roast(K) it and eat it at the place the Lord your God will choose. Then in the morning return to your tents. For six days eat unleavened bread and on the seventh day hold an assembly(L) to the Lord your God and do no work.(M)
