Leviticus 23

The feasts of the LORD.

Leviticus 23:1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 23:2 Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them, As for the appointed seasons of Yahweh, which ye shall proclaim as holy convocations, these, are they—my appointed seasons:—

The Sabbath.

Leviticus 23:3 Six days, shall work be done, but, on the seventh day, shall there be a sabbath of sacred rest, a holy convocation, no work, shall ye do,—a sabbath, shall it be unto Yahweh, in all your dwellings.

The Passover.

Leviticus 23:4 These, are the appointed seasons of Yahweh, holy convocations,—which ye shall proclaim in their appointed season:— Leviticus 23:5 In the first month, on the fourteenth of the month, between the evenings, is a Passover unto Yahweh; Leviticus 23:6 and, on the fifteenth day of this month, is the festival of unleavened cakes unto Yahweh,—seven days—unleavened cakes, shall ye eat. Leviticus 23:7 On the first day—a holy convocation, shall there be to you: no laborious work, shall ye do. Leviticus 23:8 So then ye shall bring near an altar-flame unto Yahweh, seven days,—on the seventh day, [shall there be] a holy convocation, no laborious work, shall ye do.

The sheaf of firstfruits.

Leviticus 23:9 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 23:10 Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them:—When ye enter into the land which, I, am giving you, and ye reap the harvest thereof, then shall ye bring in a sheaf of the first-ripe corn of your harvest, unto the priest; Leviticus 23:11 and he shall wave the sheaf before Yahweh, that ye may be accepted,—on the morrow of the sabbath, shall the priest wave it. Leviticus 23:12 And ye shall offer, on the day when ye wave the sheaf, a he-lamb without defect, the finest of its year, for an ascending-sacrifice unto Yahweh; Leviticus 23:13 and the, meal-offering thereof, shall be two-tenth parts of fine meal, overflowed with oil, as an altar-flame unto Yahweh, a satisfying odour,—and, the drink-offering thereof, [shall be] mine, the fourth of a hin. Leviticus 23:14 And, neither bread, nor roasted corn, nor garden-land grain, shall ye eat, until this selfsame day, until ye have brought in the oblation of your God,—an age-abiding statute unto your generations, in all your dwellings.

The feast of Pentecost.

Leviticus 23:15 Then shall ye keep count to yourselves, from the morrow of the sabbath, from the day ye brought in the wave sheaf,—seven sabbaths complete, shall there be: Leviticus 23:16 until, on the morrow of the seventh sabbath, ye count fifty days,—then shall ye bring near a new meal-offering unto Yahweh. Leviticus 23:17 Out of your dwellings, shall ye bring in two wave loaves of two-tenths of an ephah, of fine meal, shall they be, with leaven, shall they be baked,—firstfruits unto Yahweh. Leviticus 23:18 Then shall ye bring near, with the bread, seven he-lambs without defect, of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams,—they shall be an ascending-sacrifice unto Yahweh, with their meal-offering, and their drink-offerings, an altar-flame of satisfying odour unto Yahweh. Leviticus 23:19 Then shall ye offer one he-goat, as a sin-bearer,—and two he-lambs, of the first year, as a peace-offering. Leviticus 23:20 And the priest shall wave them, with the firstfruits' bread, as a wave-offering before Yahweh, with the two he-lambs,—holy, shall they be unto Yahweh, for the priest. Leviticus 23:21 And ye shall make proclamation on this self-same day—a holy convocation, shall it be unto you; no laborious work, shall ye do,—an age-abiding statute, in all your dwellings, unto your generations.

Gleanings to be left for the poor.

Leviticus 23:22 And, when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly clear the border of thy field, when thou reapest, and, the gleanings of thy field, shalt thou not glean,—for the poor and for the sojourner, shalt thou leave them. I—Yahweh, am your God.

The feast of Trumpets.

Leviticus 23:23 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 23:24 Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying:—In the seventh month, on the first of the month, shall there be unto you a sacred rest, a trumpet-blowing commemoration, a holy convocation: Leviticus 23:25 no laborious work, shall ye do,—but ye shall bring near an altar-flame unto Yahweh.

The Day of Atonement.

Leviticus 23:26 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying, Leviticus 23:27 Surely, on the tenth of this seventh month, is, the Day of Propitiation, a holy convocation, shall it be to you, therefore shall ye humble your souls,—and bring near an altar-flame unto Yahweh. Leviticus 23:28 And, no work, shall ye do, on this selfsame day,—for, a day of propitiation, it is, to put a propitiatory-covering over you before Yahweh your God. Leviticus 23:29 For, whosoever be the person that shall not be humbled on this selfsame day, then shall he be cut off from among his kinsfolk. Leviticus 23:30 And, whosoever be the person that shall do any work on this selfsame day, then will I destroy that person from the midst of his people. Leviticus 23:31 No work, shall ye do,—an age-abiding statute, to your generations, in all your dwellings. Leviticus 23:32 A sabbath of sacred rest, shall it be unto you, so shall ye humble your souls,—on the ninth of the month, in the evening, from evening to evening, shall ye keep your sabbath.

The feast of Tabernacles.

Leviticus 23:33 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 23:34 Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying:—On the fifteenth day of this seventh month, shall be the festival of booths, for seven days, unto Yahweh. Leviticus 23:35 On the first day, [shall be] a holy convocation,—no laborious work, shall ye do. Leviticus 23:36 Seven days, shall ye bring near an altar-flame unto Yahweh: on the eighth day—a holy convocation, shall there be unto you, so shall ye bring near an altar-flame unto Yahweh—the closing of the feast, it is, no laborious work, shall ye do. Leviticus 23:37 These, are the appointed seasons of Yahweh, which ye shall proclaim, as holy convocations,—for bringing near, as an altar-flame unto Yahweh, an ascending-sacrifice, and a meal-offering, a sacrifice and a drink-offering, each day's appointment on its own day:— Leviticus 23:38 besides the sabbaths of Yahweh, and besides your presents, and besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill offerings which ye shall give unto Yahweh. Leviticus 23:39 Surely, on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the yield of the land, shall ye celebrate the festival of Yahweh, seven days,—on the first day, a sacred rest, and, on the eighth day, a sacred rest. Leviticus 23:40 So then ye shall take you, on the first day, boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm-trees, and boughs of thick trees, and poplars of the ravine,—and shall rejoice before Yahweh your God, seven days. Leviticus 23:41 So shall ye celebrate it as a festival unto Yahweh, seven days in the year,—a statute age-abiding, to your generations. In the seventh month, shall ye celebrate it; Leviticus 23:42 In booths, shall ye dwell seven days;—All the home-born in Israel, shall dwell in booths: Leviticus 23:43 To the end that your generations may know, that, in booths, made I the sons of Israel to dwell, when I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt,—I—Yahweh, am your God. Leviticus 23:44 So then Moses declared, the appointed seasons of Yahweh, unto the sons of Israel.
