Exodus 12:17

Context
12:17 So you will keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread, because on this very 1  day I brought your regiments 2  out from the land of Egypt, and so you must keep this day perpetually as a lasting ordinance. 3 

1 tn Heb “on the bone of this day.” The expression means “the substance of the day,” the day itself, the very day (S. R. Driver, Exodus, 95).

2 tn The word is “armies” or “divisions” (see Exod 6:26 and the note there; cf. also 7:4). The narrative will continue to portray Israel as a mighty army, marching forth in its divisions.

3 tn See Exod 12:14.
