Leviticus 23

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 2 "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, 'Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations; these are my feasts.'

 3 Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work in it; it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

 4 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their seasons:

 5 The LORD's passover is in the evening of the fourteenth day of the first month.

 6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread to the LORD; you must eat unleavened bread for seven days.

 7 In the first day you shall have an holy assembly; you shall do no servile work in it.

 8 For seven days you will make an offering burnt by fire to the LORD; the seventh day is an holy convocation: you shall do no servile work in it.

 9 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 10 "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, 'When you have come into the land that I shall give to you, and shall reap the harvest of it, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest;

 11 And on the day after the sabbath the priest shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you.

 12 And on the day the sheaf is waved for you, you shall present a first year male lamb without blemish as a burnt offering to the LORD.

 13 And the cereal offering shall be two tenths of an ephah [bushel] of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire to the LORD for a sweet savor; and the drink offering of it shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin [1.5 gals].

 14 And you shall eat neither bread, nor parched grain, nor green grain, until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God; this shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

 15 And you shall count to yourself seven sabbaths from the day after the sabbath, which was the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be completed.

 16 Count fifty days from the day after the seventh sabbath; and on that day you shall offer a new cereal offering to the LORD.

 17 You shall bring from your habitation two wave loaves of bread made from of two tenths of an ephah of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven, and they are the first fruits to the LORD.

 18 And you 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 sweet savor to the LORD.

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

 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.

 21 And you shall proclaim on the same day, that it may be a holy assembly to you. You shall do no servile work in it, and it shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

 22 And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not make completely clean the corners of your field when you reap, neither shall you gather any gleaning [second picking] of your harvest. You shall leave them to the poor, and to the stranger; I am the LORD your God.'"

 23 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 24 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath that is a memorial of blowing of trumpets and a holy assembly.

 25 You shall do no servile work in it, but you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.'"

 26 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 27 "Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement; it shall be an holy assembly to you. You shall afflict your souls [by fasting], and make an offering made by fire to the LORD.

 28 And you shall do no work in that same day for it is a day of atonement; a day to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.

 29 Whatever soul is not afflicted in that same day, shall be cut off from among his people.

 30 And whatever soul does any work in that same day, will be destroyed by me from among his people.

 31 You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

 32 It shall be to you a sabbath of rest, and you shall afflict [fast] your souls; in the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, shall you celebrate your sabbath."

 33 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 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.

 35 The first day shall be a holy assembly; you shall do no servile work in it.

 36 For seven days you shall present an offering burnt by fire to the LORD. The eighth day shall be a holy assembly to you; and you shall present an offering made by fire to the LORD. It is a solemn assembly, and you shall do no servile work in it.

 37 These are the feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy assemblies, to present an offering made by fire to the LORD, a burnt offering, and a cereal offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, each on its own day.

 38 These are in additions to the sabbaths of the LORD, your gifts, all your vows, and all your freewill offerings that you give to the LORD.

 39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep a feast to the LORD for seven days. The first day shall be a sabbath, and the eighth day shall be a sabbath.

 40 And you shall on the first day take [to make booths] the boughs of pleasant trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.

 41 And you shall keep it a feast to the LORD for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

 42 You shall dwell in for booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths;

 43 So that your later 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 Moses declared to the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.
