Bible: Leviticus 23:15-21

The Festival of Weeks

23:15‘You must count for yourselves seven weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day you bring the wave offering sheaf; they must be complete weeks. 1  23:16 You must count fifty days – until the day after the seventh Sabbath – and then 2  you must present a new grain offering to the Lord. 23:17 From the places where you live you must bring two loaves of 3  bread for a wave offering; they must be made from two tenths of an ephah of fine wheat flour, baked with yeast, 4  as first fruits to the Lord. 23:18 Along with the loaves of bread, 5  you must also present seven flawless yearling lambs, 6  one young bull, 7  and two rams. 8  They are to be a burnt offering to the Lord along with their grain offering 9  and drink offerings, a gift of a soothing aroma to the Lord. 10  23:19 You must also offer 11  one male goat 12  for a sin offering and two yearling lambs for a peace offering sacrifice, 23:20 and the priest is to wave them – the two lambs 13  – along with the bread of the first fruits, as a wave offering before the Lord; they will be holy to the Lord for the priest.

23:21‘On this very day you must proclaim an assembly; it is to be a holy assembly for you. 14  You must not do any regular work. This is a perpetual statute in all the places where you live throughout your generations. 15
