The Exodus page 6
“This plague will bring death to all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on a throne, to the firstborn of the maidservant behind the mill. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as has never happened before and shall never be again.”
“Moses, speak to all the congregation of Israel. Tell them I said, Select a lamb, one for each household: Your lamb must a year old male with no imperfections. After four days, the whole assembly of Israel shall kill it in the evening.”
“And you must take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the lamb’s blood, and strike the top of the door frame and the two side posts with the blood; and none of you shall go out the door of your houses until the morning. And you must eat the lamb that night, roasted with fire; but do not break any of its bones. You must eat it with unleavened bread because it is the Lord’s Passover.”
“For I will pass through the land of Egypt, and will kill all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt: I am the Lord. And the blood shall be a mark of safety on the houses where you are, so when I see the blood, I will not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to smite you. He will pass-over you. And every year after this, you must celebrate the dinner of unleavened bread as a memorial, calling it the Lord’s Passover.”
So the Children of Israel did as the Lord had commanded them through Moses and Aaron.
