Passover and the Unleavened Bread Feast (Num 28:16-28:25)

On the fourteenth day of the first month there shall be a Passover offering to Yahweh. On the fifteenth day of this month is a festival. Seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten. On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall not work at your occupations. You shall offer an offering by fire, a burnt offering to Yahweh. There shall be two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old. See that they are without blemish. Their grain offering shall be of choice flour mixed with oil. Three- tenths of an ephah shall you offer for a bull, and two-tenths for a ram. One-tenth shall you offer for each of the seven lambs. There should be also one male goat for a sin offering, to make atonement for you. You shall offer these in addition to the burnt offering of the morning, which belongs to the regular burnt offering. In the same way you shall offer daily, for seven days, the food of an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to Yahweh. It shall be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. On the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation. You shall not work at your occupations.”

Like in Exodus, chapter 12, and Leviticus, chapter 23, there is an explanation of the Passover Unleavened Bread Feast. It starts on the 14th day of 1st month. Then there is a 7 day festival when only unleavened bread is eaten. On the 1st day there shall be a holy convocation when you do not work. This will be the same on the 7th day. There is no mention of evening or twilight here. For this burnt offering, you need the 10 animals like the monthly festival, 2 young bulls, 1 ram, and 7 male lambs a year old. These animals are sacrificed with grain offerings the same as in the last chapter. There is also a goat for a sin offering. You do this for 7 days. This is in addition to the regular daily burnt offerings and its drink offerings.
