Exodus 13

13:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
13:2 Sanctify to me all the first-born, whatever openeth the
 womb among the children of Israel, [both] of man and of beast:
 it [is] mine.
13:3 And Moses said to the people, Remember this day, in which
 ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by
 strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this [place]:
 there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
13:4 This day ye came out in the month Abib.
13:5 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the
 land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and
 the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he swore to thy fathers
 to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey; that thou
 shalt keep this service in this month.
13:6 Seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread, and in the
 seventh day [shall be] a feast to the LORD.
13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days: and there shall
 no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be
 leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.
13:8 And thou shalt show thy son in that day, saying, [This is
 done] because of that [which] the LORD did to me when I came
 forth out of Egypt.
13:9 And it shall be for a sign to thee upon thy hand, and for a
 memorial between thy eyes; that the LORD'S law may be in thy
 mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of
13:10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in its season
 from year to year.
13:11 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the
 land of the Canaanites, as he swore to thee and to thy fathers,
 and shall give it to thee,
13:12 That thou shall set apart to the LORD all that openeth the
 matrix; and every firstling that cometh of a beast which thou
 hast, the males [shall be] the LORD'S.
13:13 And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a
 lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his
 neck: and all the first-born of man among thy children shalt
 thou redeem.
13:14 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come,
 saying, What [is] this? that thou shalt say to him, By strength
 of hand the LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the house of
13:15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go,
 that the LORD slew all the first-born in the land of Egypt,
 both the first-born of man, and the first-born of beasts:
 therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix,
 being males; but all the first-born of my children I redeem.
13:16 And it shall be for a token upon thy hand, and for
 frontlets between thy eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD
 brought us forth out of Egypt.
13:17 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 said, Lest
 peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they
 return to Egypt.
13:18 But God led the people about, [through] the way of the
 wilderness of the Red Sea: and the children of Israel went up
 harnassed from the land of Egypt.
13:19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had
 strictly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely
 visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones hence with you.
13:20 And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in
 Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.
13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a
 cloud, to lead them in the way; and by night in a pillar of
 fire, to give them light: to go by day and night.
13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the
 pillar of fire by night, [from] before the people.
