Leviticus 23:3

The Weekly Sabbath

23:3 “‘Six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there must be a Sabbath of complete rest, 1  a holy assembly. You must not do any work; it is a Sabbath to the Lord in all the places where you live.

Leviticus 23:18

23:18 Along with the loaves of bread, 2  you must also present seven flawless yearling lambs, 3  one young bull, 4  and two rams. 5  They are to be a burnt offering to the Lord along with their grain offering 6  and drink offerings, a gift of a soothing aroma to the Lord. 7 

1 tn This is a superlative expression, emphasizing the full and all inclusive rest of the Sabbath and certain festival times throughout the chapter (see B. A. Levine, Leviticus [JPSTC], 155). Cf. ASV “a sabbath of solemn rest.”

2 tn Heb “And you shall present on the bread.”

3 tn Heb “seven flawless lambs, sons of a year.”

4 tn Heb “and one bull, a son of a herd.”

5 tc Smr and LXX add “flawless.”

6 tn Heb “and their grain offering.”

7 sn See the note on Lev 1:9.
