(Leviticus 17:1-3 a, comp. 23:36, 39; Numbers 29:7-11), a solemn fast (Acts 27:9; Philo Opp. 2:206, 296, 591; Josephus, Ant. 14:16, 4) and holy-day ( שִׁבִּת שִׁבָּתוֹן Leviticus 16:31; Leviticus 23:32), held from the evening of the 9th till that of the 10th day of the 5th month, Tisri, five days before the feast of Tabernacles. The modern Mohammedan fast called 'Ramadan," held during an entire (lunar) month has sometimes been referred to as having its analogies; likewise the fast of Isis among the ancient Egyptians (Herod. 4:186; comp. 2:40), and the Hindu fast-day "Sandrajonon," etc. (See FAST).
