(14) “So when your son asks you in times to come, ‘What is this?’ say to him, ‘By a strong hand Adonai brought us out of Egypt, the house of bondage, (15) and when Pharaoh refused to let us go, Adonai slew the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both men and animals. So I sacrifice to the Lord all firstborn males, but redeem the first born of my sons.’ (16) …for by a strong hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt.”
