Solemn Feast - Deuteronomy 16

Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover  unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the  LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.  Deuteronomy 16:1 

Deuteronomy 16:2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the  LORD thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place  which the LORD shall choose to place his name there.  

Deuteronomy 16:3 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days  shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread  of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt  in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou  camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.  

Deuteronomy 16:4 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee  in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of  the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even,  remain all night until the morning. 

Deuteronomy 16:5 Thou mayest not  sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the  LORD thy God giveth thee: 

Deuteronomy 16:6 But at the place which  the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there  thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down  of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.  

Deuteronomy 16:7 And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which  the LORD thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the  morning, and go unto thy tents. 

Deuteronomy 16:8 Six days thou shalt  eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a  solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no  work therein.  

Deuteronomy 16:9 Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin  to number the seven weeks from such time as thou  beginnest to put the sickle to the corn. 

Deuteronomy 16:10 And thou  shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God with a  tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt  give unto the LORD thy God, according as the LORD thy  God hath blessed thee: 

Deuteronomy 16:11 And thou shalt rejoice  before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy  daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the  Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the  fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place  which the LORD thy God hath chosen to 
place his name  there. 

Deuteronomy 16:12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a  bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these  statutes.   

Deuteronomy 16:13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven  days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:  

Deuteronomy 16:14 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy  son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy    Page 113 
Deuteronomy   maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless,  and the widow, that are within thy gates. 

Deuteronomy 16:15 Seven  days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God  in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the  LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in  all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely  rejoice.   

Deuteronomy 16:16 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear  before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall  choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of  weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not  appear before the LORD empty: 

Deuteronomy 16:17 Every man shall  give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD  thy God which he hath given thee.  

Deuteronomy 16:18 Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all  thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout  thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just  judgment. 

Deuteronomy 16:19 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou  shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth  blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the  righteous. 

Deuteronomy 16:20 That which is altogether just shalt thou  follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the  LORD thy God giveth thee.  

Deuteronomy 16:21 Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees  near unto the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt  make thee. 

Deuteronomy 16:22 Neither shalt thou set thee up any  image; which the LORD thy God hateth.
