Bible: Exodus 12:43-49

12:43

Participation in the Passover

1 

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the ordinance of the Passover. No foreigner may 2  share in eating it. 3  12:44 But everyone’s servant who is bought for money, after you have circumcised him, may eat it. 12:45 A foreigner and a hired worker must not eat it. 12:46 It must be eaten in one house; you must not bring any of the meat outside the house, and you must not break a bone of it. 12:47 The whole community of Israel must observe it.

12:48When a foreigner lives 4  with you and wants to observe the Passover to the Lord, all his males must be circumcised, 5  and then he may approach and observe it, and he will be like one who is born in the land 6 but no uncircumcised person may eat of it. 12:49 The same law will apply 7  to the person who is native-born and to the foreigner who lives among you.”
