 13:7
13:5 There will come a time when God will bring you to the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Hivites and Yebusites.
Vehayah chi-yevi'acha Adonay el-erets haKna'ani vehaChiti veha'Emori vehaChivi vehaYevusi asher nishba la'avoteycha latet lach erets zavat chalav udevash ve'avadeta et-ha'avodah hazot bachodesh hazeh.
13:6 Eat matzahs for seven days, and make the seventh day a festival to God.
Shiv'at yamim tochal matsot uvayom hashvi'i chag l'Adonay.
13:7 Since matzahs must be eaten for [these] seven days, no leaven may be seen in your possession. No leaven may be seen in all your territories.
Matsot ye'achel et shiv'at hayamim velo-yera'eh lecha chamets velo-yera'eh lecha se'or bechol-gvulecha.



Commentary:

Canaanites...
  See note on Exodus 3:8. Only the nations whose lands were considered to be 'flowing with milk and honey' are mentioned here (Mekhilta; Ramban).
