Deuteronomy 16:1

Context
The Passover-Unleavened Bread Festival

16:1 Observe the month Abib 1  and keep the Passover to the Lord your God, for in that month 2  he 3  brought you out of Egypt by night.

1 sn The month Abib, later called Nisan (Neh 2:1; Esth 3:7), corresponds to March-April in the modern calendar.

2 tn Heb “in the month Abib.” The demonstrative “that” has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.
