29:35 Last Reading
The eighth day shall be a time of retreat for you when you shall do no mundane work.
Bayom hashmini atseret tihyeh lachem kol-melechet avodah lo ta'asu.
29:36 As a burnt fire offering for an appeasing fragrance to God, you shall present one bull, one ram, and seven yearling sheep, [all] without blemish,
Vehikravtem olah isheh re'ach nichoach l'Adonay par echad ayil echad kvasim bney-shanah shiv'ah tmimim.



Commentary:

time of retreat
  Atzereth in Hebrew; see Leviticus 23:36. Hence, this festival is known as Shemini Atzereth, 'the eighth day of retreat.'
