CHAP. x1, x11. Death of the first-born threatened. 61 over, the man Moses was very greatin the

land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's
servants, and in the #. of the people.
4.And Moses said, Thus saith the Lord,
About midnight will I go out into the midst
of Egypt:
5 And all the first-born in the land of
Egypt shall die, from the first-born of
Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even
unto the first-born of the maid-servant
that is behind the mill ; and all the first-
born of beasts.
6 And there shallbe a greatcry through-
out all the land of Egypt, such as there was
none like it, nor § like it any more.
7 But against any of the children of
Israel shall not a dog move his tongue,
against man or beast: that ye may know
how that the Lord doth put a difference
between the Egyptians and Israel.
8 And all these thy servants shall come
down unto me, and bow down themselves
unto me, saying,...Get thee out, and all
the people that follow thee; and after that
I will go out : and he went out from Pha-
raoh in a great anger.
9 And the Lord said unto Moses, Pha-
raoh shall not hearken unto you ; that my
lo may be multiplied in the land of
§ And Moses and Aaron did all these
wonders before Pharaoh ; and the Lorn
hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he
would not let the children of Israel go out

of his land.
3 The fiassover instituted. 29 The first-
born are slain. 31 The Israelites are
driven out of the land.
NI) the Lord spake unto Mcscs and
Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
2 This month shall be unto you the be-
ginning of months: it shall be the hist
month of the year to you.
3 * Speak ye unto all the congregation
of i. saying, h, the tenth day of this
month they .# take to them every inan
a lamb, according to the house of their fa-
thers, a lamb for an 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 accord-
ing to his eating shall make your count
for the lamb.
5 Your lamb shall be without blemish,
a male of the first year: ye shall take it
out from the sheep or from the goats:
6 And ye shall keep it up until the
fourteenth day of the same month ; and
the whole assembly of the congregation of
Israel shall kill it in 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 cat it,

8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire ; and unleavened bread, and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast ovish fire ; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thcreof. 10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning : and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with firc. 11 * And thus shall ye eat it; twith your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staffin your hand: and ye shall eat it in haste; it is the Lor D's passover. 12 For I will pass through the land of Togypt this night, and will smite all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast : and against all the gods of ETt I will czecute judgment: I am the or D. 13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of t.

memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to thc Lor D throughout your gencrations: ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. 15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavencil bread ; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread, from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. 16And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you: no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. 17 And ye shall observe the frast of unleavened bread; for in this self-same day have I brought your armies out of the jand of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. 18 "I In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall cat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. 19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eatcth 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 Yeshall eat nothing leavened: in all o shall ye eat unleavened rea

thinchand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the Lord brought us forth out of Fgypt. 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 sail, Lest perodventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: 18 But God led the people about, throw gh the way of the wilderness of the Red sca: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt. 19 And Moses took the booes of Joseph with him : for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you ; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you. 20 " And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness. 21 And the Lok D went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light: to go by day and night. 22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, o o of fire by night, from before the people. ght, fi CHAP. §§ 5 Pharaoh fursucth. 10 The Israelites murmur. 21 They flass through the Red sca. 23 The Egystians drowned. ND the Lok D spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Spéak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pi—hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea. 3 For Pharach will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in. 4 And 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 Lon p.

up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble. 8 And with the blast of thy nostrils

the waters were gathered together, the

flood stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the Sea. 9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. 10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them : they sank as lead in the mighty waters. 11 Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thce, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders' 12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. 13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people ...}} thou hast redeemed :

, thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. 15 Then the dukes of Fdom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take iod upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. 16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm o shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. 17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O Lord, ovhich thou hast made for thee to dwell in ; in the sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established. 18 The Lord shall reign for ever and cwer. 19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them : but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea. 20 T And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her, with timbrels, and with dances. 21 And Miriam answered them, Sin ye to the Lord, for he hath triumphe gloriously ; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. 22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. 23 T And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah; for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
