(Read Leviticus 23 Part 1 First)

25 You must do no regular work on that day. Instead, you are to present offerings to the LORD by fire."

26 Then the LORD said to Moses,

27 "Remember that the Day of Atonement is to be celebrated on the ninth day after the Festival of Trumpets.* On that day you must humble yourselves, gather for a sacred assembly, and present offerings to the LORD by fire.1

28 Do no work during that entire day because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement will be made for you before the LORD your God, and payment will be made for your sins.

29 Anyone who does not spend that day in humility will be cut off from the community.

30 And I will destroy anyone among you who does any kind of work on that day.

31 You must do no work at all! This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed wherever you live.

32 This will be a Sabbath day of total rest for you, and on that day you must humble yourselves. This time of rest and fasting will begin the evening before the Day of Atonement* and extend until evening of that day."2

33 And the LORD said to Moses,

34 "Tell the Israelites to begin the Festival of Shelters on the fifth day after the Day of Atonement.* This festival to the LORD will last for seven days.3

35 It will begin with a sacred assembly on the first day, and all your regular work must stop.

36 On each of the seven festival days, you must present offerings to the LORD by fire. On the eighth day, you must gather again for a sacred assembly and present another offering to the LORD by fire. This will be a solemn closing assembly, and no regular work may be done that day.

37 "These are the LORD's appointed annual festivals. Celebrate them by gathering in sacred assemblies to present all the various offerings to the LORD by fire--whole burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrificial meals and drink offerings--each on its proper day.

38 These festivals must be observed in addition to the LORD's regular Sabbath days. And these offerings must be given in addition to your personal gifts, the offerings you make to accompany your vows, and any freewill offerings that you present to the LORD.

39 "Now, on the first day of the Festival of Shelters,* after you have harvested all the produce of the land, you will begin to celebrate this seven-day festival to the LORD. Remember that the first day and closing eighth day of the festival will be days of total rest.4

40 On the first day, gather fruit from citrus trees,* and collect palm fronds and other leafy branches and willows that grow by the streams. Then rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.5

41 You must observe this seven-day festival to the LORD every year. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be kept by all future generations.

42 During the seven festival days, all of you who are Israelites by birth must live in shelters.

43 This will remind each new generation of Israelites that their ancestors had to live in shelters when I rescued them from the land of Egypt. I, the LORD, am your God."

44 So Moses gave these instructions regarding the annual festivals of the LORD to the Israelites.
