SEV Biblia, Chapter 29:12 Â¶ También a los quince días del mes séptimo tendréis santa convocación; ninguna obra servil haréis, y celebraréis fiesta solemne al SEÑOR por siete días;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 29:12 Verse 12. On the fifteenth day of the seventh month] On this day there was to be a solemn assembly, and for seven days sacrifices were to be offered; on the first day thirteen young bullocks, two rams, and fourteen lambs. On each succeeding day one bullock less, till on the seventh day there were only seven, making in all seventy. What an expensive service! How should we magnify God for being delivered from it! Yet these were all the taxes they had to pay. At the public charge there were annually offered to God, independently of trespass-offerings and voluntary vows, fifteen goats, twenty-one kids, seventy-two rams, one hundred and thirty-two bullocks, and eleven hundred and one lambs! But how little is all this when compared with the lambs slain every year at the passover, which amounted in one year to the immense number of 255, 600 slain in the temple itself, which was the answer that Cestius, the Roman general, received when he asked the priests how many persons had come to Jerusalem at their annual festivals; the priests, numbering the people by the lambs that had been slain, said, "twenty-five myriads, five thousand and six hundred."-For an account of the feast of tabernacles, see on "Lev. xxiii. 34".
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have an holy convocation , etc.] Of the same month Tisri, which was the seventh from Nisan or Abib, though it was formerly the first month of the year: ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days ; the feast of tabernacles, which began on the fifteenth day of this month.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 12-40 - Soon after the day of atonement, the day in which men were to afflic their souls, followed the feast of Tabernacles, in which they were to rejoice before the Lord. Their days of rejoicing were to be days of sacrifices. A disposition to be cheerful does us good, when it encourages our hearts in the duties of God's service. All the days of dwelling in booths they must offer sacrifices; while we are here in tabernacle state, it is our interest, as well as our duty, constantl to keep up communion with God. The sacrifices for each of the seve days are appointed. Every day there must be a sin-offering, as in the other feasts. Our burnt-offerings of praise cannot be accepted of God unless we have an interest in the great sacrifice which Christ offered when he made himself a Sin-offering for us. And no extraordinar services should put aside stated devotions. Every thing here reminds u of our sinfulness. The life that we live in the flesh must be by the faith of the Son of God; until we go to be with him, to behold his glory, and praise his mercy, who hath loved us and washed us from ou sins in his own blood. To whom be honour and glory for ever. Amen __________________________________________________________________
