The Festival of Weeks(A)

15 “‘From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks. 16 Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath,(B) and then present an offering of new grain to the Lord. 17 From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah(C) of the finest flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offering of firstfruits(D) to the Lord. 18 Present with this bread seven male lambs, each a year old and without defect, one young bull and two rams. They will be a burnt offering to the Lord, together with their grain offerings and drink offerings(E)—a food offering, an aroma pleasing to the Lord. 19 Then sacrifice one male goat for a sin offering[a] and two lambs, each a year old, for a fellowship offering. 20 The priest is to wave the two lambs before the Lord as a wave offering,(F) together with the bread of the firstfruits. They are a sacred offering to the Lord for the priest. 21 On that same day you are to proclaim a sacred assembly(G) and do no regular work.(H) This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.

22 “‘When you reap the harvest(I) of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest.(J) Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you.(K) I am the Lord your God.’”
