In the seventh
Leviticus 23:33-43
33
Again the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
34
"Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the LORD.
35
'On the first day is a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work of any kind.
36
'For seven days you shall present an offering by fire to the LORD. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to the LORD; it is an assembly. You shall do no laborious work.
37
'These are the appointed times of the LORD which you shall proclaim as holy convocations, to present offerings by fire to the LORD-- burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrifices and drink offerings, [each] day's matter on its own day--
38
besides [those of] the sabbaths of the LORD, and besides your gifts and besides all your votive and freewill offerings, which you give to the LORD.
39
'On exactly the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the crops of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the LORD for seven days, with a rest on the first day and a rest on the eighth day.
40
'Now on the first day you shall take for yourselves the foliage of beautiful trees, palm branches and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.
41
'You shall thus celebrate it [as] a feast to the LORD for seven days in the year. It [shall be] a perpetual statute throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
42
'You shall live in booths for seven days; all the native-born in Israel shall live in booths,
43
so that your generations may know that I had the sons of Israel live in booths when I brought them out from the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.'"
Numbers 29:12-38
12
'Then on the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work, and you shall observe a feast to the LORD for seven days.
13
'You shall present a burnt offering, an offering by fire as a soothing aroma to the LORD: thirteen bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs one year old, which are without defect;
14
and their grain offering, fine flour mixed with oil: three-tenths [of an] [ephah] for each of the thirteen bulls, two-tenths for each of the two rams,
15
and a tenth for each of the fourteen lambs;
16
and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its grain offering and its drink offering.
17
'Then on the second day: twelve bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs one year old without defect;
18
and their grain offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams and for the lambs, by their number according to the ordinance;
19

24
their grain offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams and for the lambs, by their number according to the ordinance;
25
and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its grain offering and its drink offering.
26
'Then on the fifth day: nine bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs one year old without defect;
27
and their grain offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams and for the lambs, by their number according to the ordinance;
28
and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering and its grain offering and its drink offering.
29

34
and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its grain offering and its drink offering.
35
'On the eighth day you shall have a solemn assembly; you shall do no laborious work.
36
'But you shall present a burnt offering, an offering by fire, as a soothing aroma to the LORD: one bull, one ram, seven male lambs one year old without defect;
37
their grain offering and their drink offerings for the bull, for the ram and for the lambs, by their number according to the ordinance;
38
and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering and its grain offering and its drink offering.
Deuteronomy 16:13-15
13
"You shall celebrate the Feast of Booths seven days after you have gathered in from your threshing floor and your wine vat;
14
and you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and the Levite and the stranger and the orphan and the widow who are in your towns.
15
"Seven days you shall celebrate a feast to the LORD your God in the place which the LORD chooses, because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful.

All the men of Israel assembled themselves to the king at the feast, that is [in] the seventh month.
2 Chronicles 7:8-10
8
So Solomon observed the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly [who came] from the entrance of Hamath to the brook of Egypt.
9
On the eighth day they held a solemn assembly, for the dedication of the altar they observed seven days and the feast seven days.
10
Then on the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people to their tents, rejoicing and happy of heart because of the goodness that the LORD had shown to David and to Solomon and to His people Israel.
Nehemiah 8:14-18
14
They found written in the law how the LORD had commanded through Moses that the sons of Israel should live in booths during the feast of the seventh month.
15
So they proclaimed and circulated a proclamation in all their cities and in Jerusalem, saying, "Go out to the hills, and bring olive branches and wild olive branches, myrtle branches, palm branches and branches of [other] leafy trees, to make booths, as it is written."
16
So the people went out and brought [them] and made booths for themselves, each on his roof, and in their courts and in the courts of the house of God, and in the square at the Water Gate and in the square at the Gate of Ephraim.
17
The entire assembly of those who had returned from the captivity made booths and lived in them. The sons of Israel had indeed not done so from the days of Joshua the son of Nun to that day. And there was great rejoicing.
18
He read from the book of the law of God daily, from the first day to the last day. And they celebrated the feast seven days, and on the eighth day [there was] a solemn assembly according to the ordinance.
Zechariah 14:16-19
16
Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.
17
And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be no rain on them.
18
If the family of Egypt does not go up or enter, then no [rain will fall] on them; it will be the plague with which the LORD smites the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.
19
This will be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.

John 7:37-39
37
Now on the last day, the great [day] of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.
38
"He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'"
39
But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet [given], because Jesus was not yet glorified.
