Verses 1-40

Religious Ordinances of the Seventh Month

The seventh month (Tishri = September-October) was the first month of the civil year (see on Leviticus 23:23-25), and this chapter describes the three sacred festivals which fell during that month.

1-6. The Feast of Trumpets on New Tear’s Day: see Leviticus 23:23-25.

7-11. The Day of Atonement, the tenth day of the month: see Leviticus 16.

12-38. The Feast of Tabernacles, beginning on the fifteenth day of the month and lasting eight days. The sacrifices proper to this feast are unusually numerous, a feature expressive of its joyous nature, as the Feast of Harvest Thanksgiving: see Leviticus 23:33-43.
