24 Pharaoh summoned Moshe and said, “Go, worship Adonai; only leave your flocks and herds behind — your children may go with you.”
25 Moshe answered, “You must also see to it that we have sacrifices and burnt offerings, so that we can sacrifice to Adonai our God.
26 Our livestock will also go with us — not a hoof will be left behind — because we must choose some of them to worship Adonai our God, and we don’t know which ones we will need to worship Adonai until we get there.”
27 But Adonai made Pharaoh hardhearted, and he would not let them go.
28 Pharaoh said to them, “Get away from me! And you had better not see my face again, because the day you see my face, you will die!”
29 Moshe answered, “Well spoken! I will see your face no more.”
1 Adonai said to Moshe, “I’m going to bring still one more plague on Pharaoh and Egypt, and after that he will let you leave here. When he does let you go, he will throw you out completely!
2 Now tell the people that every man is to ask his neighbor and every woman her neighbor for gold and silver jewelry.”
3 Adonai made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people. Moreover, Moshe was regarded by Pharaoh’s servants and the people as a very great man in the land of Egypt.
22 When the time came for their purification according to the Torah of Moshe, they took him up to Yerushalayim to present him to Adonai
23 (as it is written in the Torahof Adonai, “Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to Adonai”)
24 and also to offer a sacrifice of a pair of doves or two young pigeons, as required by the Torah of Adonai.
