Exodus 12:26-27; Exodus 13:8; Exodus 13:14; Deuteronomy 11:19; Joshua 4:6-7; Joel 1:3

26 And lwhen your children say to you, What do you mean by this service? 27 you shall say, mIt is the sacrifice of the Lord's Passover, for he passed over the houses of the people of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians but spared our houses. And the people nbowed their heads and worshiped.


yYou shall tell your son on that day, It is because of what the Lord did for me when I came out of Egypt.


14 gAnd when in time to come your son asks you, What does this mean? you shall say to him, hBy a strong hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt, from the house of islavery.


19 You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.


that this may be a sign among you. yWhen your children ask in time to come, What do those stones mean to you? then you shall tell them that zthe waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the people of Israel aa memorial forever.


dTell your children of it,

and let your children tell their children,

and their children to another generation.
