1Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 2'Speak to the Israelites and say: (The solemn festivals of Yahweh to which you wil summon them aremy sacred assemblies.) "These are my solemn festivals: 3"You wil work for six days, but the seventh wil be a day of complete rest, a day for the sacredassembly on which you do no work at al . Wherever you live, this is a Sabbath for Yahweh. 4"These are Yahweh's solemn festivals, the sacred assemblies to which you wil summon the Israeliteson the appointed day: 5"The fourteenth day of the first month, at twilight, is the Passover of Yahweh; 6and the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of Unleavened Bread for Yahweh. For seven daysyou wil eat unleavened bread. 7On the first day you wil hold a sacred assembly; you wil do no heavy work. 8For seven days you wil offer food burnt for Yahweh. On the seventh day there will be a sacredassembly; you wil do no heavy work." ' 9Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 10'Speak to the Israelites and say: "When you enter the country which I am giving you and reap theharvest there, you wil bring the priest the first sheaf of your harvest, 11and he wil present it to Yahweh with the gesture of offering, for you to be acceptable. The priest willmake this offering on the day after the Sabbath, 12and on the same day as you make this offering, you wil offer Yahweh an unblemished lamb one yearold as a burnt offering. 13The cereal offering for that day will be two-tenths of wheaten flour mixed with oil, as food burnt as asmel pleasing to Yahweh. The libation wil be a quarter of a hin of wine. 14You wil eat no bread, roasted ears of wheat or fresh produce before this day, before making theoffering to your God. This is a perpetual law for al your descendants, wherever you live. 15"From the day after the Sabbath, the day on which you bring the sheaf of offering, you will countseven ful weeks. 16You wil count fifty days, to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then you wil offer Yahweh a newcereal offering. 17You wil bring bread from your homes to present with the gesture of offering -- two loaves, made oftwo-tenths of wheaten flour baked with leaven; these are first-fruits for Yahweh. 18In addition to the bread, you wil offer seven unblemished lambs a year old, a young bul and tworams, as a burnt offering to Yahweh with a cereal offering and a libation, as food burnt as a smel pleasing to Yahweh. 19You wil also offer a goat as a sacrifice for sin, and two lambs a year old as communion sacrifice. 20The priest wil present them before Yahweh with the gesture of offering, in addition to the bread of thefirst-fruits. These, and the two lambs, are holy things for Yahweh, and wil revert to the priest. 21"On the same day, you will hold an assembly; for you this will be a sacred assembly; you wil do noheavy work. This is a perpetual law for your descendants, wherever you live. 22"When you reap the harvest in your country, you wil not reap to the very edges of your field, nor wilyou gather the gleanings of the harvest. You wil leave them for the poor and the stranger. I am Yahweh yourGod." ' 23Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 24'Speak to the Israelites and say: "The first day of the seventh month wil be a day of rest for you, ofremembrance and acclamation, a sacred assembly. 25You wil do no heavy work and you will offer food burnt for Yahweh." ' 26Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 27'But the tenth day of this seventh month wil be the Day of Expiation. You wil hold a sacred assembly.You will fast and offer food burnt for Yahweh. 28You wil do no work that day, for it is the Day of Expiation, on which the rite of expiation will beperformed for you before Yahweh your God. 29Anyone who fails to fast that day wil be outlawed from his people; 30anyone who works that day I shal eliminate from his people. 31No work wil be done -- this is a perpetual law for your descendants wherever you live. 32It must be a day of complete rest for you. You wil fast; on the evening of the ninth day of the month,from this evening till the fol owing evening, you wil rest completely.' 33Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 34'Speak to the Israelites and say: "On the fifteenth day of this seventh month there wil be the feast ofShelters for Yahweh, lasting for seven days. 35The first day wil be a day of sacred assembly; you wil do no heavy work. 36For seven days you will offer food burnt for Yahweh. On the eighth day you wil hold a sacredassembly and you will offer food burnt for Yahweh. It is a day of solemn meeting; you wil do no heavy work. 37"These are Yahweh's solemn festivals to which you wil summon the Israelites, the sacred assembliesfor the purpose of offering food burnt for Yahweh, consisting of burnt offerings, cereal offerings, sacrifices andlibations, each on its appropriate day, 38besides Yahweh's Sabbaths, and your presents and al your votive and voluntary gifts that you maketo Yahweh. 39"But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the produce of the land,you wil celebrate the feast of Yahweh for seven days. The first and eighth days wil be days of rest. 40On the first day you wil take choice fruit, palm branches, boughs of leafy trees and flowering shrubsfrom the river bank, and for seven days enjoy yourselves before Yahweh your God. 41You wil celebrate a feast for Yahweh in this way for seven days every year. This is a perpetual lawfor your descendants. "You wil keep this feast in the seventh month. 42For seven days you will live in shelters: al the citizens of Israel wil live in shelters, 43so that your descendants may know that I made the Israelites live in shelters when I brought them outof Egypt, I, Yahweh your God." ' 44Moses then promulgated Yahweh's solemn festivals to the Israelites.
