Numbers 29

Haydock's Catholic Bible CommentaryHaydock's Catholic Commentary

Verse 1

The first. This day was doubly solemn, as being the first day of the month, consequently entitled to all the sacrifices enjoined for it; and also a holiday, for which other victims are requisite, besides the perpetual holocausts, ver. 2, 6., and chap. xxviii. 11. (Haydock)

Verse 7

Tenth. The feast of expiation, on which see Leviticus xvi. 29., and xxiii. 24, where we have also explained what relates to the feast of tabernacles, ver. 34.

Verse 12

Seven days, not refraining indeed all that time from servile work, but remaining under tents, and daily performing what is required, ver. 13., &c.

Verse 27


Verse 35

Eighth day, which was more solemn than the preceding ones, but less so than the first. The victims are every day diminished. (Calmet) --- This day, in the Hebrew calendar, is called the feast of retention, (atsroth) as they staid near the tabernacle. (Du Hamel)

Verse 39

Vows. The general regulations did not hinder any private ones from being fulfilled. (Calmet) --- Sacrifice. Mincha, or offering of flour, &c. (Haydock)
