Leviticus 23


23:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
23:2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them,
 [Concerning] the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim
 [to be] holy convocations, [even] these [are] my feasts.
23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the
 sabbath of rest, a holy convocation: ye shall do no work [in
 it]: it [is] the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.
23:4 These [are] the feasts of the LORD, holy convocations,
 which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
23:5 In the fourteenth [day] of the first month at evening [is]
 the LORD'S passover.
23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month [is] the feast
 of unleavened bread to the LORD, seven days ye must eat
 unleavened bread.
23:7 In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall
 do no servile work in it.
23:8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD
 seven days: in the seventh day [is] a holy convocation, ye
 shall do no servile work [in it].
23:9 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
23:10 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When ye
 shall have come into the land which I give to you, and shall
 reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the
 first-fruits of your harvest to the priest:
23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be
 accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest
 shall wave it.
23:12 And ye shall offer, that day when ye wave the sheaf, a
 he-lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt-offering
 to the LORD.
23:13 And the meat-offering thereof [shall be] two tenth-parts
 of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire to the
 LORD [for] a sweet savor: and the drink-offering thereof [shall
 be] of wine, the fourth [part] of a hin.
23:14 And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor
 green ears, until the same day that ye have brought an offering
 to your God: [It shall be] a statute for ever throughout your
 generations in all your dwellings.
23:15 And ye shall count to you from the morrow after the
 sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the
 wave-offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:
23:16 Even to the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye
 number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat-offering to
 the LORD.
23:17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave-loaves of
 two tenth-parts: they shall be of fine flour, they shall be
 baked with leaven, [they are] the first-fruits to the LORD.
23:18 And 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 to the LORD, with their
 meat-offering, and their drink offerings, [even] an offering
 made by fire of a sweet savor to the LORD.
23:19 Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a
 sin-offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice
 of peace-offerings.
23:20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the
 first-fruits [for] a wave-offering before the LORD, with the
 two lambs: they shall be holy to the LORD for the priest.
23:21 And ye shall proclaim on the same day, [that] it may be a
 holy convocation to you: ye shall do no servile work [in it].
 [it shall be] a statute for ever in all your dwellings
 throughout your generations.
23:22 And 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 to the poor, and to the stranger: I [am]
 the LORD your God.
23:23 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
23:24 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh
 month, in the first [day] of the month, shall ye have a
 sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.
23:25 Ye shall do no servile work [in it]; but ye shall offer an
 offering made by fire to the LORD.
23:26 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
23:27 Also on the tenth [day] of this seventh month [there shall
 be] a day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation to you,
 and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by
 fire to the LORD.
23:28 And ye shall do no work in that same day; for it [is] a
 day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD
 your God.
23:29 For whatever soul [it may be] that shall not be afflicted
 in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.
23:30 And whatever soul [it may be] that doeth any work in that
 same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.
23:31 Ye shall do no manner of work. [It shall be] a statute for
 ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
23:32 It [shall be] to you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall
 afflict your souls in the ninth [day] of the month at evening:
 from evening to evening shall ye celebrate your sabbath.
23:33 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
23:34 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day
 of this seventh month [shall be] the feast of tabernacles [for]
 seven days to the LORD.
23:35 On the first day [shall be] a holy convocation: ye shall
 do no servile work [in it].
23:36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire to the
 LORD: on the eighth day shall be a holy convocation to you, and
 ye shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD: it [is] a
 solemn assembly; [and] ye shall do no servile work [in it].
23:37 These [are] the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall
 proclaim [to be] holy convocations, to offer an offering made
 by fire to the LORD, a burnt-offering, and a meat-offering, a
 sacrifice, and drink-offerings, every thing upon its day:
23:38 Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts,
 and beside all your vows, and beside all your
 free-will-offerings, which ye give to the LORD.
23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye
 have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast
 to the LORD seven days: on the first day [shall be] a sabbath,
 and on the eighth day [shall be] a sabbath.
23:40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of
 goodly trees, branches of palm-trees, and the boughs of thick
 trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before
 the LORD your God seven days.
23:41 And ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD seven days in the
 year. [It shall be] a statute for ever in your generations; ye
 shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
23:42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days: all that are
 Israelites born shall dwell in booths:
23:43 That 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] the LORD your God.
23:44 And Moses declared to the children of Israel the feasts of
 the LORD.
