Leviticus

THE FESTIVALS: The Sabbath.  Lv.23.1-4

1THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES AND SAID, 2Speak to the Israelites in these words: These are the appointed seasons of the LORD, and you shall proclaim them as sacred assemblies; these are my appointed seasons. 3On six days work may be done, but every seventh day is a sabbath of sacred rest, a day of sacred assembly, on which you shall do no work. Wherever you live, it is the LORD's sabbath.

4These are the appointed seasons of the LORD, the sacred assemblies which you shall proclaim in their appointed order.

The festival of Passover and Unleavened Bread.  Lv.23.5-14 - Nu.28.16-25

5In the first month on the fourteenth day between dusk and dark is the LORD's Passover. 6On the fifteenth day of this month begins the LORD's pilgrim-feast of Unleavened Bread; for seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes. 7On the first day there shall be a sacred assembly; you shall not do your daily work. 8For seven days you shall present your food-offerings to the LORD. On the seventh day also there shall be a sacred assembly; you shall not do your daily work.

9The LORD spoke to Moses and said, 10Speak to the Israelites in these words: When you enter the land which I give you, and you reap its harvest, you shall bring the first sheaf of your harvest to the priest. 11He shall present the sheaf as a special gift before the LORD on Or from the day after the sabbath, so as to gain acceptance for yourselves. 12On the day you present the sheaf, you shall prepare a perfect yearling ram for a whole-offering to the LORD, 13with the proper grain-offering, two tenths of an ephah of flour mixed with oil, as a food-offering to the LORD, of soothing odour, and also with the proper drink-offering, a quarter of a hin of wine. 14You shall eat neither bread, nor grain, parched or fully ripened, during that day, the day on which you bring your God his offering; this is a rule binding on your descendants for all time wherever you live.

Harvest.  Lv.23.15-22 - Nu.28.26-31

15From the day after the sabbath, the day on which you bring your sheaf as a special gift, you shall count seven full weeks. 16The day after the seventh sabbath will make fifty days, and then you shall present to the LORD a grain-offering from the new crop. 17You shall bring from your homes two loaves as a special gift; they shall contain two tenths of an ephah of flour and shall be baked with leaven. They are the LORD's firstfruits. 18In addition to the bread you shall present seven perfect yearling sheep, one young bull, and two rams. They shall be a whole-offering to the LORD with the proper grain-offering and the proper drink-offering, a food-offering of soothing odour to the LORD. 19You shall also prepare one he-goat for a sin-offering and two yearling sheep for a shared-offering, 20and the priest shall present them in addition to the bread of the firstfruits as a special gift before the LORD. They shall be a holy-gift to the LORD for the priest. 21On that same day you shall proclaim a sacred assembly for yourselves; you shall not do your daily work. This is a rule binding on your descendants for all time wherever you live.

22When you reap the harvest in your land, you shall not reap right into the edges of your field, neither shall you glean the fallen ears. You shall leave them for the poor and for the alien. I am the LORD your God.

New Year.  Lv.23.23-25 - Nu.29.1-6

23The LORD spoke to Moses and said, 24Speak to the Israelites in these words: In the seventh month you shall keep the first day as a sacred rest, a day of remembrance and acclamation, a day of sacred assembly. 25You shall not do your daily work; you shall present a food-offering to the LORD.

The Day of Atonement.  Lv.23.26-32 - Nm.29.1-6

26The LORD spoke to Moses and said: 27Further, the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. There shall be a sacred assembly; you shall mortify yourselves and present a food-offering to the LORD. 28On that same day you shall do no work because it is a day of expiation, to make expiation for you before the LORD your God. 29Therefore every person who does not mortify himself on that day shall be cut off from his father's kin. 30I will extirpate any person who does any work on that day. 31You shall do no work; it is a rule binding on your descendants for all time wherever you live. 32It is for you a sabbath of sacred rest, and you shall mortify yourselves. From the evening of the ninth day to the following evening you shall keep your sabbath-rest.

Feast of Booths.  Lv.23.33-44 - Nu.29.12-40

33The LORD spoke to Moses and said, 34Speak to the Israelites in these words: On the fifteenth day of this seventh month the LORD's pilgrim-feast of Tabernacles Or Booths or Arbours begins, and it lasts for seven days. 35On the first day there shall be a sacred assembly; you shall not do your daily work. 36For seven days you shall present a food-offering to the LORD; and on the eighth day there shall be a sacred assembly, and you shall present a food-offering to the LORD. It is the closing ceremony; you shall not do your daily work.

37These are the appointed seasons of the LORD which you shall proclaim as sacred assemblies for presenting food-offerings to the LORD, whole-offerings and grain-offerings, shared-offerings and drink-offerings, each on its day, 38besides the LORD's sabbaths and all your gifts, your vows, and your freewill offerings to the LORD.

39Further, from the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when the harvest has been gathered, you shall keep the LORD's pilgrim-feast for seven days. The first day is a sacred rest and so is the eighth day, 40On the first day you shall take the fruit of citrus-trees, palm fronds, and leafy branches, and willows Or poplars from the riverside, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days. 41You shall keep this as a pilgrim-feast in the LORD's honour for seven days every year. It is a rule binding for all time on your descendants; in the seventh month you shall hold this pilgrim-feast. 42You shall live in arbours for seven days, all who are native Israelites, 43so that your descendants may be reminded how I made the Israelites live in arbours when I brought them out of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.

44Thus Moses announced to the Israelites the appointed seasons of the LORD.
