With trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn shout triumphantly in the presence of the LORD, our King.
The LORD spoke to Moses:
"Make two trumpets of hammered silver to summon the community and have the camps set out.
When both are sounded in long blasts, the entire community is to gather before you at the entrance to the tent of meeting.
However, if one is sounded, only the leaders, the heads of Israel's clans, are to gather before you.
"When you sound short blasts, the camps pitched on the east are to set out.
When you sound short blasts a second time, the camps pitched on the south are to set out. Short blasts are to be sounded for them to set out.
When calling the assembly together, you are to sound long blasts, not short ones.
The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to sound the trumpets. Your use of these is a permanent statute throughout your generations.
"When you enter into battle in your land against an adversary who is attacking you, sound short blasts on the trumpets, and you will be remembered before the LORD your God and be delivered from your enemies.
The priests, Shebaniah, Joshaphat, Nethanel, Amasai, Zechariah, Benaiah, and Eliezer, were to blow trumpets before the ark of God. Obed-edom and Jehiah were also to be gatekeepers for the ark.
and the priests Benaiah and Jahaziel [blew] the trumpets regularly before the ark of the covenant of God.
Heman and Jeduthun had with them trumpets and cymbals to play and musical instruments of God. Jeduthun's sons were at the gate.
the Levitical singers of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, and of their sons and their relatives, dressed in fine linen, with cymbals, harps and lyres, were standing east of the altar, and with them were 120 priests blowing trumpets.
Look, God and His priests are with us at our head. The trumpets are ready to sound the charge against you. Israelites, don't fight against the LORD God of your ancestors, for you will not succeed."
Judah turned and discovered that the battle was in front of them and behind them, so they cried out to the LORD. Then the priests blew the trumpets,
"Tell the Israelites: In the seventh month, on the first [day] of the month, you are to have a day of complete rest, commemoration and jubilation-- a sacred assembly.
You must not do any daily work, but you must present a fire offering to the LORD."
You are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and your fellowship sacrifices and on your joyous occasions, your appointed festivals, and the beginning of each of your months. They will serve as a reminder for you before your God: I am the LORD your God."
"At the beginning of each of your months present a burnt offering to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old-- [all] unblemished--
But he said, "Why go to him today? It's neither New Moon or Sabbath." She replied, "Everything is all right."
Therefore don't let anyone judge you in regard to food and drink or in the matter of a festival or a new moon or a sabbath day.
and you make a fire offering to the LORD from the herd or flock-- either a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to fulfill a vow, or as a freewill offering, or at your appointed festivals-- to produce a pleasing aroma for the LORD,
You are to hold a seven-day festival for the LORD your God in the place He chooses, because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, and you will have abundant joy.
Now I myself am building a temple for the name of the LORD my God in order to dedicate it to Him for burning sweet incense before Him, for [displaying] the rows [of the bread of the Presence] continuously, and for [sacrificing] burnt offerings for the evening and the morning, the Sabbaths and the New Moons, and the appointed festivals of the LORD our God. This is [ordained] for Israel forever.
following the daily requirement for offerings according to the commandment of Moses for Sabbaths, New Moons, and the three annual appointed festivals: the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks, and the Festival of Booths.
He has done violence to His temple as if [it were] a garden [booth], destroying His place of meeting. The LORD has abolished appointed festivals and Sabbaths in Zion. He has despised king and priest in His fierce anger.
Look to the mountains-- the feet of one bringing good news and proclaiming peace! Celebrate your festivals, Judah; fulfill your vows. For the wicked one will never again march through you; he will be entirely wiped out.
