CHAPTER 23

Holidays of The LORD

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel! And you shall say to them, The holiday feasts of the  lord which you shall call them [2convocations 1for holy] -- these are my holiday feasts. Six days you shall do work, but the [2day 1seventh] is a Sabbath rest, [2convocation 1a holy] to the  lord. All work you shall not do, it is a Sabbath to the  lord in all your house. These are the holiday feasts to the  lord, [2convocations 1holy], which you shall call them in their seasons.

Holiday of Passover and Unleavened Breads

In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, between the evenings is a passover to the  lord. And on the fifteenth day of this month is the holiday feast of the unleavened breads to the  lord. Seven days you shall eat unleavened breads. And the [2day 1first 5convocation 4a holy 3will be] to you; [3any 5work 4servile 1you shall not 2do]. And you shall bring a whole burnt-offering to the  lord seven days. And the [2day 1seventh 5convocation 4a holy 3will be] to you. [3any 5work 4servile 1You shall not 2do].

Holiday of First-fruits

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, 10 Speak to the sons of Israel! And you shall say to them, Whenever you should enter into the land which I give to you, and should harvest its harvest, that you shall bring the sheaf first-fruit of your harvest to the priest. 11 And he shall offer the sheaf before the  lord accepted for you. On the next day of the first [3shall offer 4it 1the 2priest]. 12 And you shall offer on the day in which ever you should bring the sheaf -- a sheep unblemished of a year old for a whole burnt-offering to the  lord. 13 And with its sacrifice two tenths of fine flour being prepared in olive oil, a sacrifice to the  lord for a scent of pleasant aroma to the  lord; and its libation -- the fourth of the hin of wine. 14 And bread and [2parched 3green wheat 1new] you shall not eat until [2same 3day 1this], until whenever you should offer the gifts to your God -- [2law 1an eternal] unto your generations in every dwelling of yours.

15 And you shall count to yourselves from the next day of the Sabbaths, from the day which ever you should bring the sheaf of the increase offering, seven [2periods of seven 1entire]; 16 until the next day of the last period of seven you shall count fifty days, and you shall bring [2sacrifice offering 1a new] to the  lord. 17 From your houses you shall bring bread loaves, an increase offering; [2two 3bread loaves 4of 5two 6tenths 7of fine flour 1they shall be], [2being leaven 1baked] of the first produce to the  lord. 18 And you shall bring with the bread loaves seven [2lambs 1unblemished] of a year old, and [2calf 1one] of the herd, and [3rams 1two 2unblemished]. And they shall be a whole burnt-offering to the  lord, and their sacrifice offerings, and their libations, a sacrifice scent of pleasant aroma to the  lord. 19 And they shall offer a young he-goat from out of the goats -- one for a sin offering, and two lambs of a year old for a sacrifice of deliverance offering with the bread loaves of the first produce. 20 And [3shall place 4them 1the 2priest] with the bread loaves of the first produce increase offering before the  lord, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the  lord -- to the priest bringing them, to him it will be. 21 And you shall call this day a convocation, it shall be holy to you. [3any 5work 4servile 1You shall not 2do] on it. [2law 1It is an eternal] unto your generations in all your house. 22 And whenever you shall harvest the harvest of your land, you shall not complete the remainder of the harvest of your field in your harvesting. And the fall away portions of your harvest you shall not collect together -- for the poor and for the foreigner you shall leave them. I am the  lord your God.

Memorial of Trumpets

23 And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying! The [2month 1seventh], day one of the month will be to you a rest, a memorial of trumpets, [2convocation 1a holy] to the  lord. 25 [3any 5work 4servile 1You shall not 2do], and you shall bring a whole burnt-offering to the  lord. 26 And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, 27 Also on the tenth [2month 1of this seventh] is a day of making an atonement, [3convocation 2a holy 1it will be] to you. And you shall humble your souls, and you shall bring a whole burnt-offering to the  lord. 28 All work you shall not do in it, in this day; [3is 1for 5a day 6of making an atonement 2this 4to you]; to atone for you before the  lord your God. 29 Every soul who shall not be humbled in it, in this day, shall be utterly destroyed from among its people. 30 And every soul which shall do work in it, in this day, [2shall be destroyed 1that soul] from among its people. 31 All work you shall not do; [2law 1it is an eternal] unto your generations in all your houses. 32 A Sabbath of Sabbaths it will be to you.

I am the  lord your God. 44 And Moses told the holidays of the  lord to the sons of Israel.
