SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:22 Y tomad un manojo de hisopo, y mojadlo en la sangre que estará en un lebrillo, y untad el dintel y los dos postes con la sangre que estará en el lebrillo; y ninguno de vosotros salga de las puertas de su casa hasta la mañana.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 12:22 Verse 22. A bunch of hyssop] The original word bwza ezob has been variously translated musk, rosemary, polypody of the wall, mint, origanum, marjoram, and HYSSOP: the latter seems to be the most proper.
Parkhurst says it is named from its detersive and cleansing qualities, whence it was used in sprinkling the blood of the paschal lamb, in cleansing the leprosy, Lev. xiv. 4, 6, 51, 52; in composing the water of purification, Num. xix. 6, and sprinkling it, Num. xix. 18. It was a type of the purifying virtue of the bitter sufferings of Christ. And it is plain, from Psa. li. 7, that the psalmist understood its meaning. Among botanists hyssop is described as "a genus of the gymnospermia (naked-seeded) order, belonging to the didynamia class of plants. It has under-shrubby, low, bushy stalks, growing a foot and a half high, small, spear-shaped, close- sitting, opposite leaves, with several smaller ones rising from the same joint; and all the stalks and branches terminated by erect whorled spikes of flowers of different colours, in the varieties of the plant. The leaves have an aromatic smell, and a warm pungent taste. The leaves of this plant are particularly recommended in humoural asthmas, and other disorders of the breast and lungs, and greatly promote expectoration." Its medicinal qualities were probably the reason why this plant was so particularly recommended in the Scriptures.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 21-28 - That night, when the first-born were to be destroyed, no Israelite mus stir out of doors till called to march out of Egypt. Their safety wa owing to the blood of sprinkling. If they put themselves from under the protection of that, it was at their peril. They must stay within, to wait for the salvation of the Lord; it is good to do so. In after-time they should carefully teach their children the meaning of this service It is good for children to ask about the things of God; they that as for the way will find it. The keeping of this solemnity every year was 1. To look backward, that they might remember what great things God ha done for them and their fathers. Old mercies, to ourselves, or to ou fathers, must not be forgotten, that God may be praised, and our fait in him encouraged. 2. It was designed to look forward, as an earnest of the great sacrifice of the Lamb of God in the fulness of time. Chris our passover was sacrificed for us; his death was our life.
