Shâbûa‛ (שְׁבֻעָה, Strong's #7620), “week.” This noun appears about 20 times in biblical Hebrew. In Gen. 29:27 it refers to an entire “week” of feasting. Exod. 34:22 speaks of a special feast in Israel’s religious calendar: “And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end.” In Lev. 12:5 the word appears with the dual suffix and signifies a period of two weeks: “But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks.…”
