12:33 The Egyptians were also urging the people to hurry and leave the land. 'We are all dead men!' they were saying.
Vatechezak Mitsrayim al-ha'am lemaher leshalcham min-ha'arets ki amru kulanu metim.
12:34 The people took their dough before it could rise. Their leftover dough was wrapped in their robes [and placed] on their shoulders.
Vayisa ha'am et-betseko terem yechmats mish'arotam tsrurot besimlotam al-shichmam.
12:35 The Israelites [also] did as Moses had said. They requested silver and gold articles and clothing from the Egyptians.
Uveney Yisra'el asu kidevar Moshe vayish'alu miMitsrayim kley-chesef uchley zahav usmalot.
12:36 God made the Egyptians respect the people, and they granted their request. [The Israelites] thus drained Egypt of its wealth.
V'Adonay natan et-chen ha'am be'eyney Mitsrayim vayash'ilum vayenatslu et-Mitsrayim.
