23 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,24 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation.25 You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall present a food offering to the Lord.”
The Day of Atonement
26 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,27 “Now on the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be for you a time of holy convocation, and you shall afflict yourselves[a] and present a food offering to the Lord.28 And you shall not do any work on that very day, for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God.29 For whoever is not afflicted[b] on that very day shall be cut off from his people.30 And whoever does any work on that very day, that person I will destroy from among his people.31 You shall not do any work. It is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.
