Numbers 28:16-25

The Passover

16 “ ‘On the fourteenth day of the first month the LORD’s Passover is to be held.
17 On the fifteenth day of this month there is to be a festival; for seven days eat bread made without yeast.
18 On the first day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.
19 Present to the LORD a food offering consisting of a burnt offering of two young bulls, one ram and seven male lambs a year old, all without defect.
20 With each bull offer a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah of the finest flour mixed with oil; with the ram, two-tenths;
21 and with each of the seven lambs, one-tenth.
22 Include one male goat as a sin offering to make atonement for you.
23 Offer these in addition to the regular morning burnt offering.
24 In this way present the food offering every day for seven days as an aroma pleasing to the LORD; it is to be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
25 On the seventh day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.
