English Standard Version
Chapter 12 2
“This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you. 3
Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household. 4
And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb. 5
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, 6
and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight. 7
“Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.
