Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.
Read Chapter 23
George Leo Haydock
Seven days, during which the people were bound to rejoice, but not to abstain from servile work; except on the first and eighth day. (Tirinus)
Tabernacles: Greek Scenopegia; because, during the octave, the Jews lived in tents, or booths, made of branches, ver. 42.
