The 8th day from Passover or seventh Day from the start of the feast of Unleavened Bread.
Timeframe, 7th day from 15th of Nissan the day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread which was the day after the Passover Sabbath which started at sunset on the 14th of Nissan.
Pentecost or Shavuot was also known as the Feast of Weeks is 51 days after the Passover or 50 days or 7 weeks plus one day after the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
The English word Pentecost is a transliteration of the Greek word pentekostos, which means fifty. It comes from the ancient Christian expression pentekoste hemera, which means fiftieth day.
The day after Passover the Feast of Unleavened Bread would begin and continue for seven days (Leviticus 23:6) then the counting would continue until the full seven weeks or 49 days were up. Then the Feast of Weeks would be celebrated.

A Week of Post-Passover Offerings
18 “On the first day, you are to hold a sacred assembly. No servile work is to be done. 19 Bring an offering that is to be incinerated in the LORD’s presence, consisting of two young bulls, a ram, and seven one year old lambs, all without any defects, 20 along with their grain offering of fine flour mixed with olive oil. Offer three tenths of an ephah for each bull, two tenths of an ephah for the ram, 21 and one tenth of an ephah for each of the seven lambs. 22 Then present one goat for a sin offering to make atonement for you, 23 apart from the burnt offering in the morning, which you are to continue offering. 24 Do this every day for seven days, as an edible sacrifice to the LORD made by fire, a pleasing aroma. It is to be offered apart from the regular burnt offering and its corresponding drink offering. 25 On the seventh day you are to hold another sacred assembly for your benefit, on which no servile work is to be done.”
First Fruit Offerings
26 “On the first day of your harvest season, you are to hold a sacred assembly when you present your first fruits during the Festival of Weeks. No servile work is to be done. 27 You are to offer this burnt offering as a pleasing aroma to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, and seven one year old lambs, 28 along with their corresponding grain offerings of fine flour mixed with olive oil; specifically, three tenths of an ephah for each bull, two tenths of an ephah for the one ram, 29 one tenth of an ephah for each of the seven lambs, 30 and one goat to make atonement for you. 31 Offer them in addition to the regular burnt offering, accompanied by its grain offering and its corresponding drink offerings.”
