Exodus 13:6-7

13:6 For seven days 1  you must eat 2  bread made without yeast, and on the seventh day there is to be 3  a festival to the Lord. 13:7 Bread made without yeast must be eaten 4  for seven days; 5  no bread made with yeast shall be seen 6  among you, and you must have no yeast among you within any of your borders.

1 tn Heb “Seven days.”

2 tn The imperfect tense functions with the nuance of instruction or injunction. It could also be given an obligatory nuance: “you must eat” or “you are to eat.” Some versions have simply made it an imperative.

3 tn The phrase “there is to be” has been supplied.

4 tn The imperfect has the nuance of instruction or injunction again, but it could also be given an obligatory nuance.

5 tn The construction is an adverbial accusative of time, answering how long the routine should be followed (see GKC 374 §118.k).

6 tn Or “visible to you” (B. Jacob, Exodus, 366).
