Exodus 12:37-42

37 The Israelites left Rameses for Succoth, about six hundred thousand on the march-men, that is, not counting their families.

38 A mixed crowd of people went with them, and flocks and herds, quantities of livestock.

39 And with the dough which they had brought from Egypt they baked unleavened cakes, because the dough had not risen, since they had been driven out of Egypt without time to linger or to prepare food for themselves.

40 The time that the Israelites spent in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years.

41 And on the very day the four hundred and thirty years ended, all Yahweh’s armies left Egypt.

42 The night when Yahweh kept vigil to bring them out of Egypt must be kept as a vigil inhonour of Yahweh by all Israelites, for all generations.
