 16:8
16:7 You shall cook it and eat it in the place chosen by God your Lord, and then you may turn around in the morning and return to your tents.
Uvishalta ve'achalta bamakom asher yivechar Adonay Eloheycha bo ufanita vaboker vehalachta le'ohaleycha.
16:8 For six [additional] days you shall then eat matzah, with the seventh day as a retreat dedicated to God your Lord, when you may not do any work.
Sheshet yamim tochal matsot uvayom hashvi'i atseret l'Adonay Eloheycha lo ta'aseh melachah.
