And you shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.
All Commentaries on Leviticus 23:28 Go To Leviticus 23
George Leo Haydock
Servile is not in the original, or in the other versions, nor in the Vulgate, ver. 30; whence it is inferred, that this day of atonement was to be kept like the sabbath: so that even meat could not be made ready on it lawfully, chap. xvi. 29. (Calmet)
