Leviticus 23:34 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
On the tenth day of the seventh month the day of atonement was to be observed by a holy meeting, by fasting from the evening of the ninth till the evening of the tenth, by resting from all work on pain of death, and with sacrifices, of which the great expiatory sacrifice peculiar to this day had already been appointed in ch. 16, and the general festal sacrifices are described in Numbers 29:8-11. (For fuller particulars, see at ch. 16.) By the restrictive אך, the observance of the day of atonement is represented a priori as a peculiar one. The אך refers less to "the tenth day," than to the leading directions respecting this feast: "only on the tenth of this seventh month...there shall be a holy meeting to you, and ye shall afflict your souls," etc.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
the feast of tabernacles This feast was celebrated in commemoration of the Israelites' dwelling in tents in the wilderness for forty years; and was kept with greater hilarity that any of the other festivals. Hence, in the Talmud, it is often called chag, the feast, by way of excellence; and by Philo, , the greatest of the feasts; it was therefore more noticed by the heathen than any other. It is probable that Cecrops borrowed from it the law which he made in Athens, `that the master of every family should after harvest make a feast for his servants, and eat together with them who had taken pains with him in tilling his grounds.'
Now the Jews' Feast of Booths was at hand.
And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelites shall dwell in booths,
that your generations may know that I made the people of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God."
"On the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall keep a feast to the LORD seven days.
"You shall keep the Feast of Booths seven days, when you have gathered in the produce from your threshing floor and your winepress.
"Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God at the place that he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Booths. They shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed.
