Exodus 12:14-20 Modern English Version (MEV)

14 This day shall be a memorial to you, and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord. Throughout your generations you shall keep it a feast by an eternal ordinance. 15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall put away leaven out of your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel. 16 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation for you. No manner of work shall be done on them; but that which every man must eat—that only may be prepared for you.

17 You shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread. For on this very day I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an ordinance forever. 18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty-first day of the month at evening. 19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses, for whoever eats that which is leavened, that person shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger or born in the land. 20 You shall eat nothing leavened. In all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened bread.

Numbers 28:16-25 Modern English Version (MEV)

Passover Offerings

16 On the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover of the Lord. 17 On the fifteenth day of this month is the feast. Unleavened bread will be eaten for seven days. 18 On the first day there will be a holy convocation. You will not do any ordinary work, 19 but you will offer a sacrifice made by fire as a burnt offering to the Lord: two young bulls, and one ram, and seven lambs in their first year. Be sure they are without blemish. 20 And their grain offering will be of flour mixed with oil. Three-tenths of an ephah you will offer for a bull, and two-tenths of an ephah for a ram. 21 One-tenth of an ephah you will offer for each of the seven lambs, 22 and one goat as a sin offering, to make an atonement for you. 23 You will offer these in addition to the burnt offering in the morning, which is for a regular burnt offering. 24 The same way you will offer daily, throughout the seven days, the food of the sacrifice made by fire, as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. It will be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. 25 And on the seventh day you will have a holy assembly. You will not do any ordinary work.

Deuteronomy 16:1-8 Modern English Version (MEV)

The Passover

16 Observe the month of Aviv[a] and keep the Passover to the Lord your God, for in the month of Aviv the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night. Therefore, you must sacrifice the Passover to the Lord your God, from the flock or the herd, in the place where the Lord shall choose to place His name. You must not eat leavened bread with it. For seven days you must eat unleavened bread, the bread of affliction, for you came out of the land of Egypt in a hurry, so that you may remember all the days of your life the day when you came out of the land of Egypt. There must not be any leavened bread seen with you within all your borders for seven days, nor may any of the meat which you sacrificed in the evening on the first day remain overnight until morning.

You may not sacrifice the Passover within any of your gates that the Lord your God has given you. But at the place where the Lord your God chooses to place His name, there you shall sacrifice the Passover in the evening at sunset, at the time that you came out of Egypt. You shall roast and eat it in the place where the Lord your God will choose, and you must return in the morning, and go to your tents. For six days you must eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a solemn assembly to the Lord your God. You must do no work on that day.
