Do this exactly 50 days later, which is the day following the seventh Sabbath. 17
Bring two loaves of bread to be lifted up in dedication to me. Each loaf is to be made with yeast and with two kilograms of the finest flour from the first part of your harvest. 18
At this same time, the entire community of Israel must bring seven lambs that are a year old, a young bull, and two rams. These animals must have nothing wrong with them, and they must be offered as a sacrifice to please me. You must also offer the proper grain and wine sacrifices with each animal. 19
Offer a goat as a sacrifice for sin, and two rams a year old as a sacrifice to ask my blessing. 20
The priest will lift up the rams together with the bread in dedication to me. These offerings are holy and are my gift to the priest. 21
This is a day of celebration and worship, a time of rest from your work. You and your descendants must obey this law. 22
When you harvest your grain, always leave some of it standing around the edges of your fields and don't pick up what falls on the ground. Leave it for the poor and for those foreigners who live among you. I am the Lord your God!
