Bible: Exodus 13:9-16

13:9 1  It 2  will be a sign 3  for you on your hand and a memorial 4  on your forehead, 5  so that the law of the Lord may be 6  in your mouth, 7  for 8  with a mighty hand the Lord brought you out of Egypt. 13:10 So you must keep 9  this ordinance at its appointed time from year to year. 10 

13:11 When the Lord brings you 11  into the land of the Canaanites, 12  as he swore to you and to your fathers, and gives it 13  to you, 13:12 then you must give over 14  to the Lord the first offspring of every womb. 15  Every firstling 16  of a beast that you have 17 the males will be the Lord’s. 18  13:13 Every firstling 19  of a donkey you must redeem 20  with a lamb, and if you do not redeem it, then you must break its neck. 21  Every firstborn of 22  your sons you must redeem.

13:14 23 

In the future, 24  when your son asks you 25  ‘What is this?’ 26  you are to tell him, ‘With a mighty hand 27  the Lord brought us out from Egypt, from the land of slavery. 28  13:15 When Pharaoh stubbornly refused 29  to release us, the Lord killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of people to the firstborn of animals. 30  That is why I am sacrificing 31  to the Lord the first male offspring of every womb, but all my firstborn sons I redeem.’ 13:16 It will be for a sign on your hand and for frontlets 32  on your forehead, for with a mighty hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt.” 33
