29:31 There shall also be one goat as a sin offering. [All this] is in addition to the regular daily burnt offering, its grain offering, and its libations.
Us'ir chatat echad milevad olat hatamid minchatah unsacheyha.
29:32 On the seventh day, there shall be 7 young bulls, 2 rams, and 14 yearling sheep, [all] without blemish,
Uvayom hashvi'i parim shiv'ah eylim shnayim kvasim bney-shanah arba'ah asar tmimim.


  The plural here alludes to the special water libation that was offered on Sukkoth (Taanith 2b; Targum Yonathan).

7 young bulls
  Thus the total number of bulls offered on Sukkoth was 13 + 12 + 11 + 10 + 9 + 8 + 7 = 70. These 70 bulls were offered for the 70 nations of the world (Sukkah 55b). See note on Genesis 10:32.
