Numbers 29:1-40

29  “‘And in the seventh month, on the first of the month, you shall have a sacred meeting: you shall not do any business work; you shall have it as a day of cheers and trumpet-calls, 2  and you shall do a burnt-offering for a genial odor to Jehovah, one steer of horned cattle, one ram, seven faultless yearling sheep, 3  and their grain-offering of farina stirred up with oil, three tenths for the steer, two tenths for the ram, 4  and one tenth per sheep for the seven sheep, 5  and one old goat as a sin-offering to purge you, 6  aside from the monthly burnt-offering and its grain-offering and the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and their due libations, for a genial odor, a fire-offering to Jehovah. 7  “‘And on the tenth of this seventh month you shall have a sacred meeting and deny yourselves the gratification of appetites; you shall not do any work; 8  and you shall present a burnt-offering to Jehovah as a genial odor, one steer of horned cattle, one ram, seven yearling sheep, have them faultless; 9  and their grain-offering of farina stirred up with oil, three tenths for the steer, two tenths for the one ram, 10  a tenth for each of the seven sheep, 11  one old goat as sin-offering, aside from the purgation sin-offering and the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and their libations. 12  “‘And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have sacred meeting; you shall not do any business work; and you shall keep a feast to Jehovah seven days. 13  And you shall present a burnt-offering, a fire-offering as a genial odor to Jehovah, thirteen steers, two rams, fourteen yearling sheep, which shall be faultless, 14  and their grain-offering of farina stirred up with oil, three tenths per steer for the thirteen steers, two tenths per ram for the two rams, 15  a tenth for each of the fourteen sheep; 16  and one old goat as sin-offering; aside from the regular burnt-offering, its grain-offering, and its libation, 17  And on the second day twelve steers, two rams, fourteen faultless yearling sheep, 18  and their due grain-offering and libations, for the steers, the rams, and the sheep, by number, 19  and one old goat as sin-offering, aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and its libation. 20  And on the third day eleven steers, two rams, fourteen faultless yearling sheep, 21  and their due grain-offering and libations, for the steers, the rams, and the sheep, by number, 22  and one sin-goat, aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and its libation. 23  And on the fourth day ten steers, two rams, fourteen faultless yearling sheep, 24  and their due grain-offering and libations for the steers, the rams, and the sheep, by number, 25  and one old goat as sin-offering, aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and its libation. 26  And on the fifth day nine steers, two rams, fourteen faultless yearling sheep, 27  and their due grain-offering and libations, for the steers, the rams, and the sheep, by number, 28  and one sin-goat, aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and its libation. 29  And on the sixth day eight steers, two rams, fourteen faultless yearling sheep, 30  and their due grain-offering and libations, for the steers, the rams, and the sheep, by number, 31  and one sin-goat, aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and its libation. 32  And on the seventh day seven steers, two rams, fourteen faultless yearling sheep, 33  and their due grain-offering and libations, for the steers, the rams, and the sheep, by number, 34  and one sin-goat, aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and its libation. 35  On the eighth day you shall have a holiday: you shall not do any business work; 36  and you shall present a burnt-offering, a fire-offering as a genial odor to Jehovah, one steer, one ram, seven faultless yearling sheep, 37  their due grain-offering and libations, for the steer, the ram, and the sheep, by number, 38  and one sin-goat, aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering and libation. 39  “‘These you shall do for Jehovah at your stated dates, besides your vows and your voluntary offerings for your burnt-offerings and grain-offerings and libations and welfare-sacrifices.’” 40  And Moses told the sons of Israel all that Jehovah commanded Moses to.
