4

and one tenth for each of the seven lambs.

5

Moreover, one goat shall be offered as a sin offering in atonement for yourselves.

These are to be offered in addition to the ordinary new-moon holocaust with its cereal offering, and in addition to the established holocaust with its cereal offering, together with the libations prescribed for them, as a sweet-smelling oblation to the LORD.

“These are the offerings you shall make to the LORD on your festivals, besides whatever holocausts, cereal offerings, libations, and peace offerings you present as your votive or freewill offerings.”

1 [1] The first day of the seventh month (about September-October) is now the Jewish New Year’s Day. In the older calendar the year began with the first of Nisan (March-April); cf  Exodus 12:2.

2 [7] The tenth day of this seventh month: the Day of Atonement. Mortify yourselves: literally, “afflict your souls,” that is, with fasting.

3 [11] The atonement sin offering: the bullock prescribed in  Lev 16:11-12.

4 [12] This feast of Booths celebrating the vintage harvest was the most popular of all and therefore had the most elaborate ritual. See note on  Lev 23:34.

5 [13] Thirteen bullocks: the number of bullocks sacrificed before the octave day was seventy, arranged on a descending scale so that the number on the seventh day was the sacred number seven.

6 [35] A solemn meeting: the Hebrew word is the technical term for the closing celebration of the three major feasts of the Passover, Pentecost and Booths, or of other special feasts that lasted for a week. Cf  Lev 23:36;  Deut 16:8;  2 Chron 7:9;  Nehemiah 8:18.
