Leviticus 23:27 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 23:27

Also on the tenth [day] of this seventh month
Tisri, the same as before, answering to part of our September, and part of October:

[there shall be] a day of atonement;
for all the sins of the year past; see ( Leviticus 16:29 Leviticus 16:30 ) ;

it shall be an holy convocation unto you:
when they should be called together for the exercise of holy duties:

and ye shall afflict your souls;
their souls, by repentance, contrition, and humiliation for sin, and their bodies by fasting; and, as the Targum of Jonathan paraphrases it,

``by abstaining from eating and drinking, and the advantage of bathing and wiping, and the use of the bed and sandals;''

hence called the fast, ( Acts 27:9 ) ; (See Gill on Leviticus 16:29);

and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord;
a burnt offering, of which see ( Numbers 29:8-11 ) .

25 You shall not work at your occupations; and you shall present the Lord's offering by fire.
26 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
27 Now, the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you: you shall deny yourselves and present the Lord's offering by fire;
28 and you shall do no work during that entire day; for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement on your behalf before the Lord your God.
29 For anyone who does not practice self-denial during that entire day shall be cut off from the people.
