SEV Biblia, Chapter 29:1 Â¶ Y el séptimo mes, al primero del mes tendréis santa convocación; ninguna obra servil haréis; os será día de júbilo (de sonar las trompetas ).
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 29:1 Verse 1. And in the seventh month, &c.] This was the beginning of their civil year, and was a time of great festivity, and was ushered in by the blowing of trumpets. It answers to a part of our September. In imitation of the Jews different nations began their new year with sacrifices and festivity. The ancient Egyptians did so; and the Persians still celebrate their nawi rooz, or new year's day, which they hold on the vernal equinox. The first day of the year is generally a time of festivity in all civilized nations. On this day the Israelites offered one young bullock, one ram, seven lambs, and a kid, for a sin-offering, besides minchahs or meat-offerings.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And in the seventh month , etc.] The month Tisri, as the Targum of Jonathan, which answers to part of our September and October; a month famous for days to be religiously observed, having more of them in it than any other month in the year: on the first day of the month, ye shall have a holy convocation ; (see Leviticus 23:24), ye shall do no servile work ; therefore, in the place referred to, is called a sabbath: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you ; of which, (see Gill on “ Leviticus 23:24”).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-11 - There were more sacred solemnities in the seventh month than in an other. It was the space between harvest and seed-time. The more leisur we have from the pressing occupations of this life, the more time we should spend in the immediate service of God. The blowing of the trumpets was appointed, Le 22:24. Here they are directed what sacrifices to offer on that day. Those who would know the mind of God in the Scriptures, must compare one part with another. The latte discoveries of Divine light explain what was dark, and supply what wa wanting, in the former, that the man of God may be perfect.
