Exodus 12: 37- 42
12:37 And the sons of Israel set out from Rameses to Soccoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides little ones.
12:38 But also an innumerable mix of common people ascended with them, sheep and herds and animals of diverse kinds, exceedingly many.
12:39 And they baked the bread, which a little while ago they had taken out of Egypt as dough. And they made unleavened bread baked under ashes. For it was not able to be leavened, with the Egyptians compelling them to leave and not permitting them to cause any delay. Neither did they have occasion to prepare any meat.
12:40 Now the habitation of the sons of Israel, while they remained in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
12:41 Having been completed, on the same day all the army of the Lord departed from the land of Egypt.
12:42 This night is a worthy observance of the Lord, when he led them out of the land of Egypt. This all the sons of Israel must observe in their generations.
The Holy Gospel According to Matthew 12: 14-21
|Then the Pharisees, departing, took council against him, as to how they might destroy him.
|But Jesus, knowing this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he cured them all.
|And he instructed them, lest they make him known.
|Then what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah was fulfilled, saying:
|“Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul is well pleased. I will place my Spirit over him, and he shall announce judgment to the nations.
|He shall not contend, nor cry out, neither shall anyone hear his voice in the streets.
|He shall not crush the bruised reed, and he shall not extinguish the smoking wick, until he sends forth judgment unto victory.
|And the Gentiles shall hope in his name.”
