Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Numbers 29:12-40

Soon after the day of atonement, that day in which men were to afflict their souls, followed the feast of tabernacles, in which they were to rejoice before the Lord; for those that sow in tears shall soon reap in joy. To the former laws about this feast, which we had, Lev. 23:34-44, here are added directions about the offerings by fire, which they were to offer unto the Lord during the seven days of that feast, Lev. 23:36.

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Numbers 29:1-40

First there were to be daily burnt offerings and cereal offerings, morning and evening. The fire on the altar was never to go out (28:1-8; see notes on Leviticus 6:8-13,Leviticus 6:19-23).Besides this daily offering there was an identical weekly offering every Sabbath (9-10). Also... read more

CERTIFICATION AS GOD'S WORD"These ye shall offer unto Jehovah in your set feasts, besides your vows, and your freewill-offerings, for your burnt-offerings, and your meal-offerings, and your drink-offerings, and for your peace-offerings.
