Offerings to be made in the seventh month,
- At the feast of trumpets, ver. 1 - 6.
- In the day of atonement, ver. 7 - 11.
- At the feast of tabernacles, ver. 12 - 40.
6: Of the month - Belonging to every new moon.
7: Afflict your souls - Yourselves, by fasting and abstinence from
all delightful things, and by compunction for your sins, and the judgments
of God, either deserved by you or inflicted upon you.
12: Seven days - Not by abstaining so long from all servile work, but
by offering extraordinary sacrifices each day. This was the Feast of
Tabernacles. And all the days of their dwelling in booths, they
must offer sacrifices. While we are in these tabernacles, 'tis our
interest as well as duty, to keep up our communion with God. Nor will the
unsettledness of our outward condition, excuse our neglect of God's worship.
