Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Numbers 29:1-11

There were more sacred solemnities in the seventh month than in any other month of the year, not only because it had been the first month till the deliverance of Israel out of Egypt (which, falling in the month Abib, occasioned that to be thenceforth made the beginning of the months in all ecclesiastical computations), but because still it continued the first month in the civil reckonings of the jubilees and years of release, and also because it was the time of vacation between harvest and... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Numbers 29:11

One kid of the goats for a sin offering ,.... This also, as it was different from that which was offered for the service of the day, so it was offered after it; as is observed by the Jewish writers, that the goat, which was offered without, though of the Musaphim, or additions, could not go before the service of the day for it is said as follows: beside the sin offering of atonement ; hence, say they, we learn, that the goat within, which was of the service of the day, went before it ... read more

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Numbers 29:7

Verse 7 7.And ye shall have on the tenth day. This was the day of Atonement. For although they never came into God’s presence without supplication for pardon, they then in a special manner confessed their sins, because a fast was appointed in token of their guilt. For thus it is written in Leviticus 23:29, "Whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people." As to the sacrifices, one bullock only is required; the rest is as before,... read more

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Numbers 29:1-40

Amounts for the yearly offerings (28:1-29:40)As the time drew near for the Israelites to settle in their new land, Moses stressed the need for constant devotion to God through the various sacrifices and festivals. 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).
