Leviticus Chapter 23

1Then the Lord spoke to Moses and said, 2“Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘The festival times of the Lord which you convoke – the holy convocations – these are my festival times. 3For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day it is a Sabbath of sabbatic observance – a holy convocation. You shall do no work; it is the Lord's Sabbath in all your dwellings. 4These are the Lord's festival times – the holy convocations which you will convoke at their appointed time. 5In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, it is the Lord's Passover. 6And on the fifteenth day of this month it is the Lord's Festival of the Unleavened Bread. You shall eat unleavened bread for seven days. 7On the first day you will have a holy convocation; you shall not do any kind of work. 8And you will offer a fire-offering to the Lord for seven days, and on the seventh day there will be a holy convocation; you shall not do any kind of work.’ ” 9Then the Lord spoke to Moses and said, 10“Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I am giving you, and you reap its harvest, then you will bring the first sheaf of your harvest to the priest. 11And he will wave the sheaf before the Lord for your acceptance. On the day after the Sabbath the priest will wave it. 12And on the day when you wave the sheaf, you will carry out the sacrifice of a lamb without blemish, one-year-old, as a burnt offering to the Lord, 13and its meal-offering: two tenths of an ephah of fine flour, mixed with oil – a fire-offering to the Lord – a sweet fragrance, and its wine libation, a quarter of a hin. 14But you will not eat bread or parched corn, or fresh grain, until this very day – until you have brought the oblation to your God. It is an age-abiding statute for your generations in all your dwelling places. 15And you will keep count: from the day after the Sabbath, from the day you bring the sheaf for the wave-offering, there shall be seven complete Sabbaths. 16Up to the day after the seventh Sabbath you will count fifty days, then you will offer a new meal-offering to the Lord. 17You will bring from your dwelling places bread for the wave-offering – two loaves – two tenths of an ephah. They will be of fine flour; they will be baked with leaven; they are the firstfruits for the Lord. 18And you will offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish, one-year-olds, and one bull-calf of the oxen, and two rams. They will be a burnt offering to the Lord, with their meal-offerings and their libations. It is a fire-offering of a sweet fragrance to the Lord. 19And you will perform the sacrifice of one buck of the goats as a sin-offering, and two one-year-old lambs as a peace-sacrifice. 20And the priest will wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave-offering before the Lord, with the two lambs. They will be holy to the Lord for the priest. 21And on this same day you will convoke the festival; you will have a holy convocation. You will do no kind of work. It is an age-abiding statute in all your dwelling places for your generations. 22And when you reap the harvest of your land, you will not completely reap the corners of your field as you reap, and you will not glean the gleanings of your harvest. You will leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the Lord your God.’ ” 23Then the Lord spoke to Moses and said, 24“Speak to the sons of Israel and say, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you will have a high Sabbath – a memorial of trumpet blowing – a holy convocation. 25You will do no kind of work, and you will offer a fire-offering to the Lord.’ ” 26And the Lord spoke to Moses and said, 27“Now on the tenth day of this seventh month it is the day of atonement. You will hold a holy convocation, and you will humble yourselves, and you will offer a fire-offering to the Lord. 28And you will not do any work on this particular day, for it is the day of atonement to atone for you before the Lord your God. 29For any person who is not humbled on this particular day will be cut off from his people. 30And as for any person who does any work on this particular day, I will eradicate that person from the midst of his people. 31You shall not do any work. It is an age-abiding statute for your generations in all your dwelling places. 32It is a Sabbath of sabbatic observance for you, and you will humble yourselves. On the ninth day of the month, in the evening, from evening to evening you will celebrate your Sabbath.” 33Then the Lord spoke to Moses and said, 34“Speak to the sons of Israel and say, ‘On the fifteenth day of this seventh month, it is the Festival of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord. 35On the first day there will be a holy convocation. You shall not do any kind of work. 36For seven days you will make a fire-offering to the Lord. On the eighth day you will hold a holy convocation, and you will offer a fire-offering to the Lord. It is a solemn assembly; you shall do no kind of work. 37These are the Lord's festival times which you will convoke – holy convocations – to offer a fire-offering to the Lord: a burnt offering and a meal-offering, a sacrifice and libations, the duty of a day on its day, 38besides the Lord's Sabbaths, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill-offerings which you give to the Lord. 39But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather the produce of the land, you will celebrate the Lord's festival for seven days; on the first day there will be a high Sabbath and on the eighth day there will be a high Sabbath. 40And on the first day, you will take for yourselves the firstfruit growth of a tree of honour: palm-branches, and a bough of a thick tree, and willows of the stream, and you will rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days. 41And you will celebrate it as a festival to the Lord for seven days of the year. It is an age-abiding statute for your generations; you will celebrate it in the seventh month. 42You will dwell in tabernacles for seven days; every native in Israel will dwell in tabernacles, 43so that your generations know that I made the sons of Israel dwell in tabernacles when I brought them out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.’ ” 44And Moses related the festival times of the Lord to the sons of Israel.
