Keeping the Feasts(A)

18 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “In the first month, on the first day of the month, you shall take a young bull without blemish and (B)cleanse the sanctuary. 19 (C)The priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering and put it on the doorposts of the [a]temple, on the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and on the gateposts of the gate of the inner court. 20 And so you shall do on the seventh day of the month (D)for everyone who has sinned unintentionally or in ignorance. Thus you shall make atonement for the temple.

21 (E)“In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, you shall observe the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. 22 And on that day the prince shall prepare for himself and for all the people of the land (F)a bull for a sin offering. 23 On the (G)seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to the Lord, seven bulls and seven rams without blemish, daily for seven days, (H)and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering. 24 (I)And he shall prepare a grain offering of one ephah for each bull and one ephah for each ram, together with a hin of oil for each ephah.

25 “In the seventh month, on the fifteenth day of the month, at the (J)feast, he shall do likewise for seven days, according to the sin offering, the burnt offering, the grain offering, and the oil.”
