24 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘aIn the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a 1rest, a breminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.

25 ‘You shall anot do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord.’ ”

The Day of Atonement

26 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

27 “On exactly athe tenth day of this seventh month is bthe day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to the Lord.

28 “You shall not do any work on this same day, for it is a aday of atonement, bto make atonement on your behalf before the Lord your God.

29 “If there is any 1person who will not humble himself on this same day, ahe shall be cut off from his people.

30 “As for any person who does any work on this same day, that person I will destroy from among his people.

31 “You shall do no work at all. It is to be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.

32 “It is to be a sabbath of complete rest to you, and you shall humble your souls; on the ninth of the month at evening, from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath.”

33 Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

34 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘On athe fifteenth of this seventh month is the bFeast of Booths for seven days to the Lord.

35 ‘On the first day is a holy convocation; you shall do ano laborious work of any kind.

36 ‘aFor seven days you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord. On bthe eighth day you shall have a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to the Lord; it is an assembly. You shall do no laborious work.

37 ‘These are athe appointed times of the Lord which you shall proclaim as holy convocations, to present offerings by fire to the Lord—burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrifices and drink offerings, beach day’s matter on its own day—

38 besides those of the sabbaths of the Lord, and besides your gifts and besides all your 1votive and freewill offerings, which you give to the Lord.

39 ‘On exactly the fifteenth day of the seventh month, awhen you have gathered in the crops of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the Lord for seven days, with a 1rest on the first day and a 1rest on the eighth day.

40 ‘Now on the first day you shall take for yourselves the 1foliage of beautiful trees, palm branches and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days.

41 ‘You shall thus celebrate it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

42 ‘You shall 1live ain booths for seven days; all the native-born in Israel shall 1live in booths,

43 so that ayour generations may know that I had the sons of Israel live in booths when I brought them out from the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.’ ”

44 So Moses declared to the sons of Israel athe appointed times of the Lord.
