Bible: Exodus 12:16-20

12:16 On the first day there will be a holy convocation, 1  and on the seventh day there will be a holy convocation for you. You must do no work of any kind 2  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 3  day I brought your regiments 4  out from the land of Egypt, and so you must keep this day perpetually as a lasting ordinance. 5  12:18 In the first month, 6  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 7  yeast must not be found in your houses, for whoever eats what is made with yeast – that person 8  will be cut off from the community of Israel, whether a foreigner 9  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.’
