14 “Celebrate a festival in my honor three times a year.(A) 15 Observe the Festival of Unleavened Bread. As I commanded you, you are to eat unleavened bread for seven days at the appointed time in the month of Abib,[a] because you came out of Egypt in that month. No one is to appear before me empty-handed.(B) 16 Also observe the Festival of Harvest[b] with the firstfruits of your produce from what you sow in the field, and observe the Festival of Ingathering[c](C) at the end of the year, when you gather your produce[d] from the field. 17 Three times a year all your males are to appear before the Lord God.
