The night of the tenth plague God killed all of the firstborn in
Egypt. But, none of the Israelites were killed. That night Pharaoh
called for Moses and Aaron. Pharaoh told them to go and serve the
Lord with their livestock.
The Egyptians wanted Israel to quickly leave Egypt. They were afraid
that the Lord might kill more people if Israel was not allowed to
Israel obeyed the Lord. They left Egypt with silver, gold, and
clothing that the Egyptians had given them.
Then the Lord gave Israel some additional instructions about observing
the Passover and about the firstborn. Since God had saved the firstborn
of Israel, he commanded them to sanctify every firstborn child and
animal. Then God gave Israel additional instructions about the Feast
of Unleavened Bread which lasted seven days and included the Passover.
God led Israel out of Egypt to Canaan. He did not lead them out
the short way because they might have changed their turned back
to Egypt when they had to go to war. So God led them out the long
way. God led Israel with a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of
fire by night.
Today, God leads us with His word which is contained in the Bible.
