Exodus 12:14

"So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.

ഈ ദിവസം നിങ്ങൾക്കു ഔർമ്മനാളായിരിക്കേണം; നിങ്ങൾ അതു യഹോവേക്കു ഉത്സവമായി ആചരിക്കേണം. തലമുറതലമുറയായും നിത്യനിയമമായും നിങ്ങൾ അതു ആചരിക്കേണം.

2 Kings 11:7

The two contingents of you who go off duty on the Sabbath shall keep the watch of the house of the LORD for the king.

ശബ്ബത്തിൽ തവണ മാറിപോകുന്ന നിങ്ങളിൽ രണ്ടു കൂട്ടങ്ങൾ രാജാവിന്റെ അടുക്കൽ യഹോവയുടെ ആലയത്തിൽ കാവലായിരിക്കേണം.

Numbers 9:13

But the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and ceases to keep the Passover, that same person shall be cut off from among his people, because he did not bring the offering of the LORD at its appointed time; that man shall bear his sin.

എന്നാൽ ശുദ്ധിയുള്ളവനും പ്രയാണത്തിൽ അല്ലാത്തവനുമായ ഒരുത്തൻ പെസഹ ആചരിക്കാതെ വീഴ്ച വരുത്തിയാൽ അവനെ അവന്റെ ജനത്തിൽനിന്നു ഛേദിച്ചുകളയേണം; നിശ്ചയിച്ച സമയത്തു യഹോവയുടെ വഴിപാടു കഴിക്കായ്കകൊണ്ടു അവൻ തന്റെ പാപം വഹിക്കേണം.
