Bible: Exodus 12:15-20

12:15 For seven days 1  you must eat 2  bread made without yeast. 3  Surely 4  on the first day you must put away yeast from your houses because anyone who eats bread made with yeast 5  from the first day to the seventh day will be cut off 6  from Israel.

12:16 On the first day there will be a holy convocation, 7  and on the seventh day there will be a holy convocation for you. You must do no work of any kind 8  on them, only what every person will eat – that alone may be prepared for you. 12:17 So you will keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread, because on this very 9  day I brought your regiments 10  out from the land of Egypt, and so you must keep this day perpetually as a lasting ordinance. 11  12:18 In the first month, 12  from the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, you will eat bread made without yeast until the twenty-first day of the month in the evening. 12:19 For seven days 13  yeast must not be found in your houses, for whoever eats what is made with yeast – that person 14  will be cut off from the community of Israel, whether a foreigner 15  or one born in the land. 12:20 You will not eat anything made with yeast; in all the places where you live you must eat bread made without yeast.’
