Hol Hamoed Pesah
This translation was taken from the JPS Tanakh
16 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, there shall be a passover sacrifice to the Lord, 17 and on the fifteenth day of that month a festival. Unleavened bread shall be eaten for seven days. 18 The first day shall be a sacred occasion: you shall not work at your occupations. 19 You shall present an offering by fire, a burnt offering, to the Lord: two bulls of the herd, one ram, and seven yearling lambs — see that they are without blemish. 20 The meal offering with them shall be of choice flour with oil mixed in: prepare three-tenths of a measure for a bull, two-tenths for a ram; 21 and for each of the seven lambs prepare one-tenth of a measure. 22 And there shall be one goat for a sin offering, to make expiation in your behalf. 23 You shall present these in addition to the morning portion of the regular burnt offering. 24 You shall offer the like daily for seven days as food, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the Lord; they shall be offered, with their libations, in addition to the regular burnt offering. 25 And the seventh day shall be a sacred occasion for you: you shall not work at your occupations.
*On the last two days of Pesah, verses 16-18 are not included in the maftir reading.
