The Festival of Trumpets

23 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the Israelites, saying: In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of complete rest, a holy convocation commemorated with trumpet blasts.(A) 25 You shall not work at your occupations, and you shall present the Lord’s offering by fire.”[a]

The Day of Atonement

26 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 27 “Now, the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you: you shall humble yourselves[b] and present the Lord’s offering by fire,[c](B) 28 and you shall do no work during that entire day, for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement on your behalf before the Lord your God. 29 For those who do not humble themselves[d] during that entire day shall be cut off from the people.(C) 30 And anyone who does any work during that entire day, such a one I will destroy from the midst of the people.(D) 31 You shall do no work. This is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your settlements. 32 It shall be to you a Sabbath of complete rest, and you shall humble yourselves;[e] on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening you shall keep your Sabbath.”
