Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
Also on the tenth day of this seventh month,.... Tisri, the same as before, answering to part of our September, and part of October:
there shall be a day of atonement; for all the sins of the year past; see Leviticus 16:29;
it shall be an holy convocation unto you: when they should be called together for the exercise of holy duties:
and ye shall afflict your souls; their souls, by repentance, contrition, and humiliation for sin, and their bodies by fasting; and, as the Targum of Jonathan paraphrases it,
"by abstaining from eating and drinking, and the advantage of bathing and wiping, and the use of the bed and sandals;''
hence called the fast, Acts 27:9;
See Gill on "Leviticus 16:29";
and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD; a burnt offering, of which see Numbers 29:8.
