Vayikra/Leviticus  22:26 - 24:23

Chapter 22

26 Hashem spoke to Moses, saying:  27 When an ox or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall remain under its mother for seven days; and from the eighth day on, it is acceptable for a fire-offering to Hashem.  28 But an ox or a sheep or goat, you may not slaughter it and its offspring on the same day.  29 When you slaughter a feast thanksgiving-offering to Hashem, you shall slaughter it to gain favor for yourselves.  30 It must be eaten on that same day, you shall not leave any of it until morning; I am Hashem.  31 You shall observe My commandments and perform them; I am Hashem.  32 You shall not desecrate My holy Name, rather I should be sanctified among the Children of Israel; I am Hashem Who sanctifies you.  33 Who took you out of the land of Egypt to be a God unto you; I am Hashem.

Chapter 23

1 Hashem spoke to Moses, saying:  2 Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them - Hashem's appointed festivals that you are to designate as holy convocations — these are My appointed festivals.  3 For six days labor may be done, and the seventh day is a day of complete rest, a holy convocation, you shall not do any work; it is a Sabbath for Hashem in all your dwelling places.

4 These are the appointed festivals of Hashem, the holy convocations, which you shall designate in their appropriate time.  5 In the first month on the fourteenth of the month in the afternoon is the time of the pesach-offering to Hashem.  6 And on the fifteenth day of this month is the Festival of Matzos to Hashem; you shall eat matzos for a seven-day period.  7 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall do no laborious work.  8 You shall bring a fire-offering to Hashem for a seven-day period; on the seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work.

9 Hashem spoke to Moses, saying:  9 Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them - When you shall enter the Land that I give you and you reap its harvest, you shall bring an Omer from your first harvest to the Kohen.  11 He shall wave the Omer before Hashem to gain favor for you; on the morrow of the rest day the Kohen shall wave it.  12 On the day you wave the Omer, you shall perform the service of an unblemished lamb in its first year as an elevation-offering to Hashem.  13 Its meal-offering shall be two tenth-ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, a fire-offering to Hashem, a satisfying aroma; and its libation shall be wine, a quarter-hin.  14 You shall not eat bread or roasted kernels or plump kernels until this very day, until you bring the offering of your God; it is an eternal decree for your generations in all your dwelling places.

15 You shall count for yourselves — from the morrow of the rest day, from the day when you bring the Omer of the waving — seven weeks, they shall be complete.  16 Until the morrow of the seventh week you shall count, fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal-offering to Hashem.  17 From your dwelling places you shall bring bread that shall be waved, two loaves made of two tenth-ephah, they shall be fine flour, they shall be baked leavened; first-offerings to Hashem.  18 With the bread you shall offer seven unblemished lambs in their first year, one young bull, and two rams; they shall be an elevation-offering to Hashem, with their meal-offering and their libations — a fire-offering, a satisfying aroma to Hashem.  19 You shall make one he-goat as a sin-offering, and two lambs in their first year as feast peace-offerings.  20 The Kohen shall wave them upon the first-offering breads as a wave-service before Hashem — upon the two sheep — they shall be holy, for Hashem and for the Kohen.  21 You shall convoke on this very day — there shall a holy convocation for yourselves — you shall do no laborious work; it is an eternal decree in your dwelling places for your generations.

22 When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not remove completely the corners of your field as you reap and you shall not gather the gleanings of your harvest; for the poor and the proselyte shall you leave them; I am Hashem, your God.

23 Hashem spoke to Moses, saying:  24 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying - In the seventh month, on the first of the month, there shall be a rest day for you, a remembrance with shofar blasts, a holy convocation.  25 You shall not do any laborious work, and you shall offer a fire-offering to Hashem.

26 Hashem spoke to Moses, saying:  27 But on the tenth day of this month it is the Day of Atonement; there shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall afflict yourselves; you shall offer a fire-offering to Hashem.  28 You shall not do any work on this very day, for it is the Day of Atonement to provide you atonement before Hashem, your God.  29 For any soul who will not be afflicted on this very day will be cut off from its people.  30 And any soul who will do any work on this very day, I will destroy that soul from among its people.  31 You shall not do any work; it is an eternal decree throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.  32 It is a day of complete rest for you and you shall afflict yourselves; on the ninth of the month in the evening — from evening to evening — shall you rest on your rest day.

33 Hashem spoke to Moses, saying:  34 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying - On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Succos, a seven-day period for Hashem.  35 On the first day is a holy convocation, you shall not do any laborious work.  36 For a seven-day period you shall offer a fire-offering to Hashem; on the eighth day there shall be a holy convocation for you and you shall offer a fire-offering to Hashem, it is an assembly, you shall not do any laborious work.

37 These are the appointed festivals of Hashem that you shall proclaim as holy convocations, to offer a fire-offering to Hashem - an elevation-offering and its meal-offering, a feast-offering and its libation, each day's requirement on its day.  38 Aside from Hashem's Sabbaths, and aside from your gifts, aside from all your vows, and aside from all your free-will offerings, which you will present to Hashem.

39 But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the crop of the Land, you shall celebrate Hashem's festival for a seven-day period; the first day is a rest day and the eighth day is a rest day.  40 You shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of a citron tree, the branches of date palms, twigs of a plaited tree, and brook willows; and you shall rejoice before Hashem, your God, for a seven-day period.  41 You shall celebrate it as a festival for Hashem, a seven-day period in the year, an eternal decree for your generations; in the seventh month shall you celebrate it.  42 You shall dwell in booths for a seven-day period; every native in Israel shall dwell in booths.  43 So that your generations will know that I caused the Children of Israel to dwell in booths when I took them from the land of Egypt; I am Hashem, your God.

44 And Moses declared the appointed festivals of Hashem to the Children of Israel.
