(Greek: ex, out; odos, way)

The second book of the Bible, thus named because it relates the departure of the Jews from Egypt and a part of their wanderings through the wilderness, as far as Mount Sinai. The most convenient division is the following:

  • events preceding the going out of Egypt (1-12)
  • the going out of Egypt and the journey to Mount Sinai (13-18)
  • the promulgation of the first instalments of the Mosaic Law (19-31)
  • the apostasy of the Jews (the golden calf), reconciliation, and renewal of the Covenant (32-34)
  • construction of the Tabernacle (35-40)
