<07919> (8687)
the words
<01697>

<08451>_.
{to understand...: or, that they might instruct in the words of the law}
And they found
<04672> (8799)
written
<03789> (8803)
in the law
<08451>
which the LORD
<03068>
had commanded
<06680> (8765)
by

Moses
<04872>_,
that the children

<05521>
in the feast

<05892>_,
and in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go forth
<03318> (8798)
unto the mount
<02022>_,
and fetch
<0935> (8685)

<06086>_,
to make
<06213> (8800)

<05521>_,
as [it is] written

So the people
<05971>
went forth
<03318> (8799)_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
[them], and made
<06213> (8799)
themselves booths

every one
<0376>
upon the roof of his house
<01406>_,
and in their courts
<02691>_,

<04325>
gate
<08179>_,

of them that were come again
<07725> (8802)
out of the captivity
<07628>
made
<06213> (8799)
booths
<05521>_,
and sat
<03427> (8799)
under the booths
<05521>_:
for since the days
<03117>
of Jeshua
<03442>
the son
<01121>
of Nun
<05126>
unto that day
<03117>
had not the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
done so
<06213> (8804)_.
And there was very
<03966>
great
<01419>

<08057>_.
Also day
<03117>
by day
<03117>_,
from the first
<07223>

<03117>
unto the last
<0314>

<03117>_,
he read
<07121> (8799)
in the book
<05612>
of the law
<08451>
of God
<0430>_.
And they kept
<06213> (8799)
the feast
<02282>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_;
and on the eighth
<08066>
day
<03117>
[was] a solemn assembly
<06116>_,
according unto the manner
<04941>_.
{a solemn...: Heb. a restraint}
