Leviticus 23

Leviticus 23

1The feasts of the Lord. 3The sabbath. 4The passover. 9The sheaf of firstfruits. 15The feast of Pentecost. 22Gleanings to be left for the poor. 23The feast of trumpets. 26The day of atonement. 33The feast of tabernacles.

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning 1the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall 2proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

3 Six 1days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an 2holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings.

4 ¶ These are the feasts of the Lord, even 1holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

5 In 1the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover.

6 And 1on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the Lord: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

7 In the 1first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no 2servile work therein.

8 But ye shall offer 1an offering made by fire unto the Lord seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

9 ¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall 1reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a asheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest:

11 And he shall 1wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.

12 And ye shall 1offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the Lord.

13 And the meat offering thereof shall be 1two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the Lord for a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin.

14 And 1ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute 2for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

15 ¶ And 1ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven 2sabbaths shall be complete:

16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number 1fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the Lord.

17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations 1two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they 2shall be baken with leaven; they are 3the firstfruits unto the Lord.

18 And ye shall 1offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for a burnt offering unto the Lord, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto the Lord.

19 Then ye shall 1sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of 2peace offerings.

20 And the priest 1shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs: they shall be 2holy to the Lord for the priest.

21 And ye shall 1proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: 2it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

22 ¶ And 1when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the Lord your God.

23 ¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In 1the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a 2memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

25 Ye shall do no 1servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

26 ¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

27 Also on the tenth day of 1this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

28 And ye shall 1do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the Lord your God.

29 For 1whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.

30 And 1whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the 2same soul will I destroy from among his people.

31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

32 It shall be unto you 1a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your asabbath.

33 ¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, 1The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord.

35 On the first day shall be 1an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

36 Seven 1days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: 2on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: it is a asolemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.

37 1These are the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:

38 Beside the 1sabbaths of the Lord, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the Lord.

39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have 1gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.

40 And ye shall take you on the first day the aboughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall 1rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.

41 1And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. 2It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

42 Ye shall 1dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:

43 That 1your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

44 And 1Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the Lord.
