EX 12:14-20 The Feast of Unleavened Bread Law

Scripture

This day shall be a memorial for you. You shall keep it as a feast to me. You shall keep it as a feast throughout your generations by an ordinance forever. 15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall put away yeast out of your house. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. 16 There shall be a holy convocation on the first day and the seventh day. No kind of work shall be done on them, except that which every man must eat, only that may be done by you. 17 You shall observe the feast of unleavened bread. For on this day, I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt.

You shall observe this day throughout your generations by an ordinance forever. 18 On the fourteenth day of this month, at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty first day of this month, at evening. 19 There shall be no yeast found in your house for seven days. For whoever eats that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, no matter if he is a foreigner, or one who is native. 20 You shall eat nothing leavened. In all your habitations you shall eat unleavened bread.’ ”
