Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 12:2

_ _ this month shall be unto you the beginning of months — the first not only in order but in estimation. It had formerly been the seventh according to the reckoning of the civil year, which began in September, and continued unchanged, but it was thenceforth to stand first in the national religious year which began in March, April.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Exodus 12:1-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Exodus 12:2

This shall be to you the beginning of months — They had hitherto begun their year from the middle of September, but hence — forward they were to begin it from the middle of March, at least in all their ecclesiastical computations. We may suppose that while Moses was bringing the ten plagues upon the Egyptians, he was directing the Israelites to prepare for their departure at an hour's warning. Probably he had, by degrees, brought them near together from their dispersions, for they are here called the congregation of Israel; and to them, as a congregation, orders are here sent.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Exodus 12:2

This (a) month [shall be] unto you the beginning of months: it [shall be] the first (b) month of the year to you.

(a) Called Nisan, containing part of March and part of April.

(b) Concerning the observation of feasts: as for other policies, they reckoned from September.

America and England celebrated jan 1 as the new year.
What month did Elohim teach man is his first month of the year?
Ex. 12;2, 13;1-8, Nissan= April .
If man didn,t teach his sophism lies .
INVESTIGATION of Elohim true, WOULD NOT EXPOSED THEM AS LIES OR MAN MADED.
NOTHING SUFFER FROM INVESTIGATION BUT FABICATION AND LIES.
TRUTH IS LIKE GOLD [in a furance],THE MORE YOUR TEST[heat] IT THE PURE IT BECOMES.
