Leviticus 23:34-44

34Speak to the people of Israel, saying aOn the fifteenth day of this seventh month and for seven days is the Feast of Booths
Or tabernacles
to the Lord.
35On the first day shall be a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work. 36For seven days you shall present food offerings to the Lord. cOn the eighth day you shall hold a holy convocation and present a food offering to the Lord. It is a dsolemn assembly; you shall not do any ordinary work.

37 e“These are the appointed feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim as times of holy convocation, for presenting to the Lord food offerings, burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrifices and drink offerings, each on its proper day, 38 fbesides the Lord’s Sabbaths and besides your gifts and besides all your vow offerings and besides all your freewill offerings, which you give to the Lord.

39“On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have ggathered in the produce of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the Lord seven days. On the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest. 40And hyou shall take on the first day the fruit of splendid trees, branches of palm trees and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and iyou shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days. 41 jYou shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 kYou shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43that lyour 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.”

44Thus Moses mdeclared to the people of Israel the appointed feasts of the Lord.
