Then, God gave some commands to His own people. He told them that they were to take a lamb for every house, and if their family was too small to share with their neighbor. The lamb was to be unblemished, meaning that it would have no marks on it and the they would keep it for four days. Then on the fourteenth night of the month, all of the Israelites would kill their lambs in the evening. They were to take the blood of the lamb and mark each side of the door posts and the post over the door with a bunch of hyssop that was dipped in the blood of the lamb. They were to roast the lamb and eat it inside their house with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Do you know what unleavened bread is? It is bread that has no leavening--no baking soda or eggs or anything to make it rise when it bakes. It looks flat, more like a cracker. They were to eat that kind of bread. They had to eat it all the lamb and leave nothing leftover. Anything that was leftover had to burned in the fire. Also, they had to eat the lamb with their shoes on and their rods in their hands and had to eat it in a hurry.
It was called the LORD'S PASSOVER. It was called that because God said that He would pass over the land of Egypt that night and kill all of the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both of man and of animal. God wanted all the Egyptians to know that He was the LORD God of all the earth. But God said that when He passed over the land, if He saw the blood that they had put on the three posts of the house's door, that He would pass over and the family's firstborn would be spared and not die in that house. God said that this day would a very special day for His people, a day to remember. Later, when the Israelite's children asked why this happened, they were to say that it was the LORD's passover, who passed over all of the houses of the Egyptians, yet saved God's people's families. When Moses told the people all of these things, they bowed their heads and worshiped God, then they went away and did as they were told.
