NET © Notes

tn Heb “draw out and take.” The verb has in view the need “to draw out” a lamb or goat selected from among the rest of the flock.

tn The Hebrew noun is singular and can refer to either a lamb or a goat. Since English has no common word for both, the phrase “a lamb or young goat” is used in the translation.

tn The word “animals” is added to avoid giving the impression in English that the Passover festival itself is the object of “kill.”
