And the 117th prohibition is that we are forbidden from leav­ing over any meat from the Pesach offering until the following day, i.e. the day of the 15th [of Nissan].

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement,1 "Do not leave any of it over until morning."

We have already explained2 that this prohibition is a lav she'nitak l'aseh, since [it corresponds to] the Torah's statement,3 "Anything that is left over until morning must be burned in fire."

Our Sages said in Mechilta,4 "The verse, 'Anything that is left over,' comes to add a positive commandment to the prohibition." This means that one is not punished by lashes [for transgressing this prohibition].5
