Numbers 29:11-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 One goat will be a purification offering. These are in addition to the purification offering for purging,[a] the regular burnt offering with its grain offering, and their libations.

On the Feast of Booths. 12 [b]On the fifteenth day of the seventh month you will declare a holy day: you shall do no heavy work. For the following seven days you will celebrate a pilgrimage feast to the Lord. 13 You will offer a burnt offering, an oblation of pleasing aroma to the Lord: thirteen bulls[c] of the herd, two rams, and fourteen yearling lambs that are unblemished.


  1. 29:11 The purification offering for purging: the bull prescribed in Lv 16:11–12 for the purging of the tent sanctuary.
  2. 29:12 This feast of Booths (Tabernacles or Sukkot) celebrating the vintage harvest was the most popular of all and therefore had the most elaborate ritual. See note on Lv 23:34.
  3. 29:13 Thirteen bulls: the number of bulls sacrificed before the octave day was seventy, arranged on a descending scale so that the number on the seventh day was the sacred number seven.
