Leviticus chapter .xxiij.

And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: These are the feasts of the LORD which ye shall call holy feasts. Six days ye shall work, and the seventh is the Sabbath of rest an holy feast: so that ye may do no work therein, for it is the Sabbath of the LORD, wheresoever ye dwell.
These are the feasts of the LORD which ye shall proclaim holy in their seasons. The fourteenth day of the first month at evening is the LORD's Passover. And the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of sweet bread unto the LORD, seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. The first day shall be an holy feast unto you, so that ye may do no laborious work therein. But ye shall offer sacrifices unto the LORD seven days, and the seventh day also shall be an holy feast, so that ye may do no laborious work therein. And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them: when ye be come into the land which I give unto you and reap down your harvest, ye shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest, and he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD to be accepted for you: and even the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer the day when he waveth the sheaf, a lamb without blemish of a year old for a burntoffering unto the LORD: and the meatoffering thereof, two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil to be a sacrifice unto the LORD of a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereto, the fourth deal of an hin of wine. And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor frumenty of new corn: until the self same day that ye have brought an offering unto your God. And this shall be a law for ever unto your children after you, wheresoever ye dwell.
And ye shall count from the morrow after the Sabbath: even from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the waveoffering, seven weeks complete: even unto the morrow after the seventh week ye shall number fifty days. And then ye shall bring a new meatoffering unto the LORD. And ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves made of two tenth deals of fine flour leavened and baken, for first fruits unto the LORD. And ye shall bring with the bread seven lambs without deformity of one year of age, and one young ox, and two rams, which shall serve for burntofferings unto the LORD, with meatofferings and drink offerings longing to the same, to be a sacrifice of a sweet savour unto the LORD. And ye shall offer an he goat for a sinoffering: and two lambs of one year old for peaceofferings. And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits before the LORD, and with the two lambs. And they shall be holy unto the LORD, and be the priest's. And ye shall make a proclamation the same day that it be an holy feast unto you, and ye shall do no laborious work therein. And it shall be a law for ever thorowout all your habitations unto your children after you. When ye reap down your harvest, thou shalt not make clean riddance of thy field, neither shalt thou make any aftergathering of thy harvest: but shalt leave them unto the poor and the stranger. I am the LORD your God.
And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: speak unto the children of Israel and say: The first day of the seventh month shall be a rest of remembrance unto you, to blow horns in an holy feast it shall be, and ye shall do no laborious work therein, and ye shall offer sacrifice unto the LORD. And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: also the tenth day of the self seventh month, is a day of atonement, and shall be on holy feast unto you, and ye shall humble your souls and offer sacrifice unto the LORD. Moreover ye shall do no work the same day, for it is a day of atonement to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul it be that humbleth not himself that day, he shall be destroyed from among his people. And whatsoever soul do any manner work that day, the same I will destroy from among his people. See that ye do no manner work therefore. And it shall be a law for ever unto your generations after you in all your dwellings. A Sabbath of rest it shall be unto you, and ye shall humble your souls. The ninth day of the month at evening and so forth from evening to evening again, ye shall keep your Sabbath.
And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: speak unto the children of Israel and say: the fifteenth day of the same seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles seven days unto the LORD. The first day shall be an holy feast, so that ye shall do no laborious work therein. Seven days ye shall offer sacrifice unto the LORD, and the eighth day shall be an holy feast unto you, and ye shall offer sacrifice unto the LORD. It is the end of the feast, and ye shall do no laborious work therein. These are the feasts of the LORD which ye shall proclaim holy feasts, for to offer sacrifice unto the LORD, burntofferings, meatofferings, and drinkofferings every day: beside the Sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and all your vows, and all your freewill offerings which ye shall give unto the LORD. Moreover in the fifteenth day of the seventh month after that ye have gathered in the fruits of the land, ye shall keep holy day unto the LORD seven days long. The first day shall be a day of rest, and the eighth day shall be a day of rest. And ye shall take you the first day, the fruits of goodly trees and the branches of palm trees and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook, and shall rejoice before the LORD seven days. And ye shall keep it holy day unto the LORD seven days in the year. And it shall be a law for ever unto your children after you, that ye keep that feast in the seventh month. And ye shall dwell in booths seven days: even all that are Israelites born, shall dwell in booths, that your children after you may know how that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: for I am the LORD your God. And Moses told all the feasts of the LORD unto the children of Israel.
