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.
Read Chapter 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)
