Exodus 12:3

Context
12:3 Tell the whole community of Israel, ‘In the tenth day of this month they each 1  must take a lamb 2  for themselves according to their families 3  – a lamb for each household. 4 

1 tn Heb “and they will take for them a man a lamb.” This is clearly a distributive, or individualizing, use of “man.”

2 tn The שֶּׂה (seh) is a single head from the flock, or smaller cattle, which would include both sheep and goats.

3 tn Heb “according to the house of their fathers.” The expression “house of the father” is a common expression for a family.

sn The Passover was to be a domestic institution. Each lamb was to be shared by family members.

4 tn Heb “house” (also at the beginning of the following verse).
