This fell on the fifteenth day of the seventh month and continued seven days, with a holy convocation on the eighth day. Israel dwelt in booths during the feast, in remembrance of their having lived in tents when brought out of Egypt. Leviticus 23:34; Numbers 29:12; Deuteronomy 16:13; 2 Chronicles 8:13; Ezra 3:4; John 7:2 . It was at the end of their harvest and vintage, when they enjoyed the fruits of God's goodness. The feast prefigures the millennium, when the people will enter into full blessing, and the eighth day, the great day, the communion of the heavenly and the earthly. Zechariah 14:16 . See FEASTS and SEASONS.
