12 “On that same night I will pass through(A) Egypt and strike down(B) every firstborn(C) of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods(D) of Egypt. I am the Lord.(E) 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over(F) you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.(G)

28 The Israelites did just what the Lord commanded(A) Moses and Aaron.

29 At midnight(B) the Lord(C) struck down all the firstborn(D) in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock(E) as well. 30 Pharaoh and all his officials and all the Egyptians got up during the night, and there was loud wailing(F) in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead.

The Exodus

31 During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship(G) the Lord as you have requested. 32 Take your flocks and herds,(H) as you have said, and go. And also bless(I) me.”

33 The Egyptians urged the people to hurry(J) and leave(K) the country. “For otherwise,” they said, “we will all die!”(L) 34 So the people took their dough before the yeast was added, and carried it on their shoulders in kneading troughs(M) wrapped in clothing. 35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold(N) and for clothing.(O) 36 The Lord had made the Egyptians favorably disposed(P) toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered(Q) the Egyptians.

On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait(A) for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.(B) For John baptized with[a] water,(C) but in a few days you will be baptized with[b] the Holy Spirit.”(D)

Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore(E) the kingdom to Israel?”

He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.(F) But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;(G) and you will be my witnesses(H) in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,(I) and to the ends of the earth.”(J)

After he said this, he was taken up(K) before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.

10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white(L) stood beside them. 11 “Men of Galilee,”(M) they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back(N) in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
