Footnotes

  1. Numbers 29:1 This has traditionally been called the Festival of Trumpets, but the main instrument used to announce the festival was the ram’s horn (shofar), not the long metal trumpet. This section, however, does not specify the instrument. It simple reads day of loud blasts. The metal trumpets, however, were also used in connection with the festivals to announce the time of sacrifice (Numbers 10:10).
  2. Numbers 29:12 Traditionally Festival of Tabernacles
