Leviticus Chapter 23

1TheIAM spoke to Moses, saying, 2"Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, 'The set feasts of TheIAM, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my set feasts. 3"'Six days shall work be done: but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation; you shall do no kind of work. It is a Sabbath to TheIAM in all your dwellings. 4"'These are the set feasts of TheIAM, even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their appointed season. 5In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, is TheIAM's Passover. 6On the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread to TheIAM. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 7In the first day you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no regular work. 8But you shall offer an offering made by fire to TheIAM seven days. In the seventh day is a holy convocation: you shall do no regular work.'" 9TheIAM spoke to Moses, saying, 10"Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, 'When you have come into the land which I give to you, and shall reap its the harvest, then you shall bring the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest: 11and he shall wave the sheaf before TheIAM, to be accepted for you. On the next day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12On the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a male lamb without blemish a year old for a burnt offering to TheIAM. 13The meal offering with it shall be two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire to TheIAM for a pleasant aroma; and the drink offering with it shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. 14You shall eat neither bread, nor roasted grain, nor fresh grain, until this same day, until you have brought the offering of your God. This is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 15"'You shall count from the next day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be completed: 16even to the next day after the seventh Sabbath you shall number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal offering to TheIAM. 17You shall bring out of your habitations two loaves of bread for a wave offering made of two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour. They shall be baked with yeast, for first fruits to TheIAM. 18You shall present with the bread seven lambs without blemish a year old, one young bull, and two rams. They shall be a burnt offering to TheIAM, with their meal offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of a sweet aroma to TheIAM. 19You shall offer one male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old for a sacrifice of peace offerings. 20The priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits for a wave offering before TheIAM, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to TheIAM for the priest. 21You shall make proclamation on the same day: there shall be a holy convocation to you; you shall do no regular work. This is a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. 22"'When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap into the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest: you shall leave them for the poor, and for the foreigner. I am TheIAM your God.'" 23TheIAM spoke to Moses, saying, 24"Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest to you, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25You shall do no regular work; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to TheIAM.'" 26TheIAM spoke to Moses, saying, 27"However on the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement: it shall be a holy convocation to you, and you shall afflict yourselves; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to TheIAM. 28You shall do no kind of work in that same day; for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement for you before TheIAM your God. 29For whoever it is who shall not deny himself in that same day; shall be cut off from his people. 30Whoever it is who does any kind of work in that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 31You shall do no kind of work: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32It shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for you, and you shall deny yourselves. In the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall keep your Sabbath." 33TheIAM spoke to Moses, saying, 34"Speak to the children of Israel, and say, 'On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the feast of tents for seven days to TheIAM. 35On the first day shall be a holy convocation: you shall do no regular work. 36Seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to TheIAM. On the eighth day shall be a holy convocation to you; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to TheIAM. It is a solemn assembly; you shall do no regular work. 37"'These are the appointed feasts of TheIAM, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire to TheIAM, a burnt offering, and a meal offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, each on its own day; 38besides the Sabbaths of TheIAM, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill offerings, which you give to TheIAM. 39"'So on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruits of the land, you shall keep the feast of TheIAM seven days: on the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest. 40You shall take on the first day the fruit of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before TheIAM your God seven days. 41You shall keep it a feast to TheIAM seven days in the year: it is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall keep it in the seventh month. 42You shall dwell in booths seven days. All who are native-born in Israel shall dwell in booths, 43that your 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 TheIAM your God.'" 44Moses declared to the children of Israel the appointed feasts of TheIAM.
