I will go throughout Egypt. Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son of the female slave, who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well.
Mark your door frames with the blood of a lamb and the angel of death will Passover you when he comes.

God tells Moses and Aaron about the 10th plague and explains to them how the Israelites should mark their doorposts with lamb's blood so that God could 'pass over' their houses and spare them from this plague.
Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and reiterates God's message to them.
On the fourteenth day of the month a perfect male lamb is killed at twilight as a sacrifice to God.
After the lamb is sacrificed it is to be eaten that night together with matzah and bitter herbs. Also the blood of the lamb is to be placed on the sides and top of the door frame.
On this day the angel of death will pass through Egypt and strike down every first born. When the angel of death sees the blood he will 'pass over' the houses and spare the Israelites from this plague.
