And rejoice3 before the LORD your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name4--you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, the Levites5 in your towns, and the aliens,6 the fatherless and the widows living among you.712
Remember that you were slaves in Egypt,8 and follow carefully these decrees.

Be joyful11 at your Feast--you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, and the Levites, the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns.
For seven days celebrate the Feast to the LORD your God at the place the LORD will choose. For the LORD your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy12 will be complete.
Three times a year all your men must appear13 before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread,14 the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles.15 No man should appear before the LORD empty-handed:1617
Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the LORD your God has blessed you.
Appoint judges17 and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly.1819
