Institution of the Passover

Exodus 12

43 And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "This is h the ordinance of the Passover: No foreigner shall eat it. 44 "But every man's servant who is bought for money, when you have i circumcised him, then he may eat it. 45 j "A sojourner and a hired servant shall not eat it. 46 "In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, k nor shall you break one of its bones. 47 l "All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. 48 "And m when a stranger 1 dwells with you and wants to keep the Passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as a native of the land. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. 49 n "One law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger who dwells among you."

50 Thus all the children of Israel did; as the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. 51 o And it came to pass, on that very same day, that the LORD brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt p according to their armies.
