<< Leviticus 23 >>
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the sons of Israel and say unto them, The feasts of the LORD, unto which ye shall make a general convocation of all the people, these shall be my feasts. 3Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day shall be a sabbath of rest, a holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein; it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

4These are the feasts of the LORD, the holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their appointed times. 5On the fourteenth of the first month between the two evenings is the LORD’s passover. 6And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD; seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. 7The first day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work therein. 8And ye shall offer an offering on fire unto the LORD seven days; the seventh day shall be a holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work therein. 9And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 10Speak unto the sons of Israel and say unto them, When ye have entered into the land which I give unto you and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest; 11and he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD that ye shall be accepted; on the day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf a he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD. 13And the present thereof shall be two-tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil in an offering on fire unto the LORD for an acceptable aroma; and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. 14And ye shall eat neither bread nor parched grain nor green ears until this same day until ye have offered the offering of your God; it shall be a statute for ever throughout your ages in all your dwellings.

15And ye shall count unto you from the day after the sabbath, from the day that ye offered the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete; 16unto the day after the seventh sabbath, ye shall number fifty days; then ye shall offer a new present unto the LORD. 17Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two-tenth deals; they shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, they are the firstfruits unto the LORD. 18And ye shall offer 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 presents and their drink offerings in an offering on fire, of a very acceptable aroma unto the LORD. 19Then ye shall also sacrifice one he goat as the sin and two lambs of the first year as a sacrifice of peace. 20And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for a wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs; they shall be holiness of the LORD for the priest. 21And ye shall be summoned on that same day; it shall be a holy convocation unto you; ye shall do no servile work: a perpetual statute in all your dwellings throughout your ages. 22And when 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 for the poor and for the stranger. I AM your God.

23And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 24Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, In the seventh month in the first day of the month, ye shall have a rest, an alarm for a reminder, and a holy convocation. 25Ye shall do no servile work therein; but ye shall offer an offering on fire unto the LORD. 26And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 27But the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the day of reconciliations; it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls and offer an offering made on fire unto the LORD. 28And ye shall do no work in this same day; for it is a day of reconciliations, to reconcile you before the LORD your God. 29For every person that shall not afflict themselves in that same day, shall be cut off from among his people. 30And any person that does any work in that same day, the same person will I destroy from among his people. 31Ye shall do no manner of work; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout your ages in all your dwellings. 32It shall be unto you a sabbath of sabbaths, and ye shall afflict your souls, beginning in the ninth day of the month in the evening, from evening unto evening, shall ye rest on your sabbath.

33And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 34Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles unto the LORD for seven days. 35The first day shall be a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. 36Seven days ye shall offer an offering on fire unto the LORD; the eighth day ye shall have a holy convocation and offer an offering on fire unto the LORD; it is a feast; and ye shall do no servile work therein. 37These are the feasts of the LORD, unto which ye shall be summoned: holy convocations to offer an offering on fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering and a present, a sacrifice and drink offerings, every thing in its proper time; 38in addition the sabbaths of the LORD and in addition to your gifts and in addition to all your vows, and in addition to all your freewill offerings, which ye shall give unto the LORD. 39But in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days; the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall also be a sabbath. 40And on the first day ye shall take branches with fruit of a beautiful tree, palm branches and the boughs of thick trees and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days. 41And ye shall keep this feast unto the LORD for seven days each year. It shall be a perpetual statute for your ages; ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42Ye shall dwell in tabernacles seven days; all that are natural of Israel shall dwell in booths, 43that your descendants may know that I made the sons of Israel to dwell in tabernacles when I brought them out of the land of Egypt. I AM your God. 44Thus Moses declared unto the sons of Israel the feasts of the LORD.
