On the seventh day is a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work."

The Feast of Firstfruits

On the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12 And on the day when you 12wave the sheaf, you shall offer a 13male lamb a year old without blemish as a burnt offering to the LORD. 13 14And the grain offering with it shall be two tenths of an ephahb of fine flour mixed with oil, a food offering to the LORD with a pleasing aroma, 15and the drink offering with it shall be of wine, a fourth of a hin.c 14 And you shall eat neither bread nor grain 16parched or 17fresh until this same day, until you have brought the offering of your God: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings

15 18"You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the 19wave offering. 16 You shall count 20fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of 21new grain to the LORD. 17 You shall bring from your dwelling places two loaves of bread to be waved, made of two tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked with leaven, as 22firstfruits to the LORD. 18 And you shall present with the bread seven lambs a year old without blemish, and one bull from the herd and two rams. They shall be a burnt offering to the LORD, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, a food offering with a pleasing aroma to the LORD. 19 And you shall offer one 23male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a sacrifice of 24peace offerings 20 And the priest shall 25wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs. 26They shall be holy to the LORD for the priest. 21 And you shall make proclamation on the same day. You shall hold a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work. It is a statute forever in all your dwelling places throughout your generations 22 "And 27when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, nor shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the LORD your God."

It shall be for you a time of holy convocation, and you shall afflict yourselves and present a food offering to the LORD. 28 And you shall not do any work on that very day, for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God. 29 For whoever is not afflicted on that very day 31shall be cut off from his people. 30 And whoever does any work on that very day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 31 You shall not do any work. It is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. 32 It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict yourselves. On the ninth day of the month beginning at evening, from evening to evening shall you keep your Sabbath."

It is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 41You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43 that 42your 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." 44 Thus Moses 43declared to the people of Israel the appointed feasts of the LORD.
