Feast of unleavened bread
 Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
 And in the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.
 And you shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall you observe this day in your generations by an ordinance forever.
**** In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.
 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eats that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.
 You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall you eat unleavened bread.
 And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying,
 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; you shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.
 These are the feasts of Yehovah, even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their seasons.
 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is Yehovah's Passover.
 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto Yehovah: seven days you must eat unleavened bread.

*** But you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: you shall do no servile work therein.
 And Yehovah spoke
unto Moses, saying,
 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My offering, and my bread for my sacrifices made by fire, for a sweet savor unto me, shall you observe to offer unto me in their due season.
 And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover
 And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten.
*** In the first day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no manner of servile work therein:
 But you shall offer a sacrifice made by fire for a burnt
offering unto Yehovah; two young bullocks, and one
ram, and seven lambs of the first year: they shall be unto you without blemish:
 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil: three tenth deals shall you offer for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram;
 A several tenth deal shall you offer for every lamb, throughout the seven lambs:
 And one goat for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you.
 You shall offer these beside the burnt offering in the morning, which is for a continual burnt offering.
 After this manner you shall offer daily, throughout the seven days, the meat of the sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah: it shall be offered beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.

 Observe the month of ha Aviv /Abib, and keep the Passover unto Yehovah your God: for in the month of ha Aviv Yehovah your God brought you forth out of Egypt by night.
 You shall therefore sacrifice the Passover unto Yehovah your God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yehovah shall choose to place his name there.
 You shall eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shall you eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for you came forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that you may remember the day when you came forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.
 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with you in all your coast seven days; neither shall there anything of the flesh, which you sacrifice the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.
 You may not sacrifice the Passover within any
of your gates, which Yehovah your God gives you:
 But at the place which Yehovah your God shall choose to place His name in, there you shall sacrifice the Passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that you came forth out of Egypt.
 And you shall roast and eat it in the place which Yehovah your God shall choose: and you shall turn in the morning, and go unto your tents.
 Six days you shall eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yehovah your God: you shall do no work therein.
2 Chr. 30 Hezekiah kept the Passover
 And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of Yehovah at Jerusalem, to keep the Passover unto Yehovah God of Israel.
 And the children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the priests praised Yehovah day by day, singing with “loud” instruments unto Yehovah.
 And Hezekiah spoke comfortably unto all the Levites that taught the good knowledge of Yehovah: and they did eat throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings, and making confession to Yehovah God of their fathers.
 And the whole assembly took counsel to keep other seven days: and they kept other seven days with gladness.
 For Hezekiah king of Judah did give to the congregation a
thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep; and the princes gave to the
congregation a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep: and a great number of
priests sanctified themselves.
 And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced.
 So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in Jerusalem.
 Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people:
and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to His holy dwelling place, even unto heaven.
2 Chr. 35 - Josiah kept the Passover
 Moreover Josiah kept a Passover unto Yehovah in Jerusalem: and they killed the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
 And the children of Israel that were present kept the Passover at that time, and the feast of unleavened bread seven days.
 And there was no Passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; neither did all the kings of Israel keep such a Passover as Josiah kept, and the priests, and the Levites, and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
 In the eighteenth year of the reign of Josiah was this Passover kept.
Ezra 6 - 2nd Temple finished
The children of the captivity kept the Passover
 And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.
 And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.
 And the children of Israel, the priests, and the Levites,
and the rest of the children of the captivity, kept the dedication of this house of God
 And offered at the dedication of this house of God an hundred bullocks, two hundred rams, four hundred lambs; and for a sin offering for all Israel, twelve he goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel.
 And they set the priests in their divisions, and the Levites in their courses, for the service of God, which is at Jerusalem; as it is written in the book of Moses.
 And the children of the captivity kept the Passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
 For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of
them were pure, and killed the Passover for all the children of the captivity,
and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.
 And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek Yehovah God of Israel, did eat,
 And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for Yehovah had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.
 Thus says Lord Yehovah;
In the first month, in the first day of the month, you shall take a young
bullock without blemish, and cleanse the sanctuary:
 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.
 And so you shall do the seventh day of the month for every one that errors, and for him that is simple: so shall you reconcile the house.
 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, you shall have (like the Gospels) the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.
 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.
 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to Yehovah, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering.
A few interesting verses:
Luke 2  Now Yeshua’s parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover
 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, (7 days) they returned…
Custom = manner according to the divine laws in Torah
