Scheduled Festivals
23:1 The LORD told Moses, 2 “Tell the Israelis that these are my festival times appointed by the LORD that you are to declare as sacred assemblies: 3 Six days you may work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, a sacred assembly. You are not to do any work. It’s a Sabbath to the LORD wherever you live. 4 These are the LORD’s appointed festivals and sacred assemblies that you are to declare at their appointed time.

5 “The LORD’s Passover is to begin on the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight. 6 On the fifteenth day of that month is the Festival of Unleavened Bread to the LORD. For seven days you are to eat unleavened bread. 7 On the first day that you hold the sacred assembly, you are to do no servile work. 8 Instead, you are to bring an offering made by fire to the LORD daily for seven days. On the seventh day, you are also to hold a sacred assembly during which you are to do no servile work.”
