"In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their
fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next
unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your
count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the
sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole
assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it
on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it."
How to cook and eat the lamb: "Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire;
his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof"

forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought
not the offering of the LORD in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin."
Salt Water --- symbolizes the blood of the first Passover lamb, also the tears shed by the Israelites slaves. We
also recall Israel's baptism in the Red Sea. (Exodus 14:22)
Horseradish --- Encarta says that "horseradish signifies the bitterness of the experience, and a mixture of
chopped nuts and apples in wine symbolizes the building mortar used by the Hebrews in their forced labor."

matzah, maror, charoset, salt water, karpas and a hard-boiled egg.
