Deuteronomy 16 ©
1 The feast of the passover, 9 of weeks, 13 of tabernacles. 16 Every male must offer according to his ability at these three feasts. 18 Of judges, and of justice. 21 Groves and images are forbidden.
Thou dshalt eat no *leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for ethou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in fhaste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
And gthere shall be no *leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; hneither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.
Thou mayest not 1sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee:
And thou shalt jroast and eat it in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents.
Six kdays thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn 2assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.
¶Seven lweeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the corn.
And thou nshalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there.
¶Thou pshalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy 4corn and thy wine:
And qthou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates.
rSeven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.
¶sThree times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and tthey shall not appear before the LORD empty:
