Leviticus 23 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

23 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

Loquere filiis Israel, et dices ad eos: Hae sunt feriae Domini, quas vocabitis sanctas.

Sex diebus facietis opus: dies septimus, quia sabbati requies est, vocabitur sanctus: omne opus non facietis in eo: sabbatum Domini est in cunctis habitationibus vestris.

Hae sunt ergo feriae Domini sanctae, quas celebrare debetis temporibus suis.

Mense primo, quartadecima die mensis ad vesperum, Phase Domini est:

et quintadecima die mensis hujus, solemnitas azymorum Domini est. Septem diebus azyma comedetis.

Dies primus erit vobis celeberrimus, sanctusque: omne opus servile non facietis in eo,

sed offeretis sacrificium in igne Domino septem diebus. Dies autem septimus erit celebrior et sanctior: nullumque servile opus facietis in eo.

Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

10 Loquere filiis Israel, et dices ad eos: Cum ingressi fueritis terram, quam ego dabo vobis, et messueritis segetem, feretis manipulos spicarum, primitias messis vestrae, ad sacerdotem:

11 qui elevabit fasciculum coram Domino, ut acceptabile sit pro vobis, altero die sabbati, et sanctificabit illum.

12 Atque in eodem die quo manipulus consecratur, caedetur agnus immaculatus anniculus in holocaustum Domini.

13 Et libamenta offerentur cum eo, duae decimae similae conspersae oleo in incensum Domini, odoremque suavissimum: liba quoque vini, quarta pars hin.

14 Panem, et polentam, et pultes non comedetis ex segete, usque ad diem qua offeretis ex ea Deo vestro. Praeceptum est sempiternum in generationibus, cunctisque habitaculis vestris.

15 Numerabitis ergo ab altero die sabbati, in quo obtulistis manipulum primitiarum, septem hebdomadas plenas,

16 usque ad alteram diem expletionis hebdomadae septimae, id est, quinquaginta dies: et sic offeretis sacrificium novum Domino

17 ex omnibus habitaculis vestris, panes primitiarum duos de duabus decimis similae fermentatae, quos coquetis in primitias Domini.

18 Offeretisque cum panibus septem agnos immaculatos anniculos, et vitulum de armento unum, et arietes duos, et erunt in holocaustum cum libamentis suis, in odorem suavissimum Domini.

19 Facietis et hircum pro peccato, duosque agnos anniculos hostias pacificorum.

20 Cumque elevaverit eos sacerdos cum panibus primitiarum coram Domino, cedent in usum ejus.

21 Et vocabitis hunc diem celeberrimum, atque sanctissimum: omne opus servile non facietis in eo. Legitimum sempiternum erit in cunctis habitaculis, et generationibus vestris.

22 Postquam autem messueritis segetem terrae vestrae, nec secabitis eam usque ad solum, nec remanentes spicas colligetis: sed pauperibus et peregrinis dimittetis eas. Ego sum Dominus Deus vester.

23 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

24 Loquere filiis Israel: Mense septimo, prima die mensis, erit vobis sabbatum, memoriale, clangentibus tubis, et vocabitur sanctum:

25 omne opus servile non facietis in eo, et offeretis holocaustum Domino.

26 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

27 Decimo die mensis hujus septimi, dies expiationum erit celeberrimus, et vocabitur sanctus: affligetisque animas vestras in eo, et offeretis holocaustum Domino.

28 Omne opus servile non facietis in tempore diei hujus: quia dies propitiationis est, ut propitietur vobis Dominus Deus vester.

29 Omnis anima, quae afflicta non fuerit die hac, peribit de populis suis:

30 et quae operis quippiam fecerit, delebo eam de populo suo.

31 Nihil ergo operis facietis in eo: legitimum sempiternum erit vobis in cunctis generationibus, et habitationibus vestris.

32 Sabbatum requietionis est, et affligetis animas vestras die nono mensis: a vespera usque ad vesperam celebrabitis sabbata vestra.

33 Et locutus est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

34 Loquere filiis Israel: A quintodecimo die mensis hujus septimi, erunt feriae tabernaculorum septem diebus Domino.

35 Dies primus vocabitur celeberrimus atque sanctissimus: omne opus servile non facietis in eo.

36 Et septem diebus offeretis holocausta Domino. Dies quoque octavus erit celeberrimus, atque sanctissimus, et offeretis holocaustum Domino: est enim coetus atque collectae: omne opus servile non facietis in eo.

37 Hae sunt feriae Domini, quas vocabitis celeberrimas atque sanctissimas, offeretisque in eis oblationes Domino, holocausta et libamenta juxta ritum uniuscujusque diei:

38 exceptis sabbatis Domini, donisque vestris, et quae offeretis ex voto, vel quae sponte tribuetis Domino.

39 A quintodecimo ergo die mensis septimi, quando congregaveritis omnes fructus terrae vestrae, celebrabitis ferias Domini septem diebus: die primo et die octavo erit sabbatum, id est, requies.

40 Sumetisque vobis die primo fructus arboris pulcherrimae, spatulasque palmarum, et ramos ligni densarum frondium, et salices de torrente, et laetabimini coram Domino Deo vestro.

41 Celebrabitisque solemnitatem ejus septem diebus per annum: legitimum sempiternum erit in generationibus vestris. Mense septimo festa celebrabitis,

42 et habitabitis in umbraculis septem diebus: omnis, qui de genere est Israel, manebit in tabernaculis,

43 ut discant posteri vestri quod in tabernaculis habitare fecerim filios Israel, cum educerem eos de terra AEgypti. Ego Dominus Deus vester.

44 Locutusque est Moyses super solemnitatibus Domini ad filios Israel.

Leviticus 23 New International Version (NIV)

The Appointed Festivals

23 The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.

The Sabbath

“‘There are six days when you may work, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, a day of sacred assembly. You are not to do any work; wherever you live, it is a sabbath to the Lord.

The Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread

“‘These are the Lord’s appointed festivals, the sacred assemblies you are to proclaim at their appointed times: The Lord’s Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. On the fifteenth day of that month the Lord’s Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast. On the first day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. For seven days present a food offering to the Lord. And on the seventh day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.’”

Offering the Firstfruits

The Lord said to Moses, 10 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you and you reap its harvest, bring to the priest a sheaf of the first grain you harvest. 11 He is to wave the sheaf before the Lord so it will be accepted on your behalf; the priest is to wave it on the day after the Sabbath. 12 On the day you wave the sheaf, you must sacrifice as a burnt offering to the Lord a lamb a year old without defect, 13 together with its grain offering of two-tenths of an ephah[a] of the finest flour mixed with olive oil—a food offering presented to the Lord, a pleasing aroma—and its drink offering of a quarter of a hin[b] of wine. 14 You must not eat any bread, or roasted or new grain, until the very day you bring this offering to your God. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.

The Festival of Weeks

15 “‘From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks. 16 Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then present an offering of new grain to the Lord. 17 From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of the finest flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offering of firstfruits to the Lord. 18 Present with this bread seven male lambs, each a year old and without defect, one young bull and two rams. They will be a burnt offering to the Lord, together with their grain offerings and drink offerings—a food offering, an aroma pleasing to the Lord. 19 Then sacrifice one male goat for a sin offering[c] and two lambs, each a year old, for a fellowship offering. 20 The priest is to wave the two lambs before the Lord as a wave offering, together with the bread of the firstfruits. They are a sacred offering to the Lord for the priest. 21 On that same day you are to proclaim a sacred assembly and do no regular work. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.

22 “‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the Lord your God.’”

The Festival of Trumpets

23 The Lord said to Moses, 24 “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts. 25 Do no regular work, but present a food offering to the Lord.’”

The Day of Atonement

26 The Lord said to Moses, 27 “The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves,[d] and present a food offering to the Lord. 28 Do not do any work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the Lord your God. 29 Those who do not deny themselves on that day must be cut off from their people. 30 I will destroy from among their people anyone who does any work on that day. 31 You shall do no work at all. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live. 32 It is a day of sabbath rest for you, and you must deny yourselves. From the evening of the ninth day of the month until the following evening you are to observe your sabbath.”

The Festival of Tabernacles

33 The Lord said to Moses, 34 “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month the Lord’s Festival of Tabernacles begins, and it lasts for seven days. 35 The first day is a sacred assembly; do no regular work. 36 For seven days present food offerings to the Lord, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present a food offering to the Lord. It is the closing special assembly; do no regular work.

37 (“‘These are the Lord’s appointed festivals, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies for bringing food offerings to the Lord—the burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrifices and drink offerings required for each day. 38 These offerings are in addition to those for the Lord’s Sabbaths and[e] in addition to your gifts and whatever you have vowed and all the freewill offerings you give to the Lord.)

39 “‘So beginning with the fifteenth day of the seventh month, after you have gathered the crops of the land, celebrate the festival to the Lord for seven days; the first day is a day of sabbath rest, and the eighth day also is a day of sabbath rest. 40 On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees—from palms, willows and other leafy trees—and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days. 41 Celebrate this as a festival to the Lord for seven days each year. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come; celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 Live in temporary shelters for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters 43 so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in temporary shelters when I brought them out of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.’”

44 So Moses announced to the Israelites the appointed festivals of the Lord.
