Leviticus 23:39 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(39) Also in the fifteenth day.—After the list of festivals discussed in this chapter has been summed up in Lev. 23:37-38, the next five verses recur to the feast of Tabernacles. The regulations are supplementary to those given before, and embody a separate enactment.

When ye have gathered in the fruit of the land.—That is, those productions which ripen in the autumnal season, as wheat, barley, oil, wine, &c.

Ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord.—The Israelites are then to keep a festival in which they are to acknowledge the bounties of the Lord and express their gratitude to the Giver of all good things. For this reason this festival is also called “the Feast of Ingathering” (Exo. 23:16; Exo. 34:22).

On the first day shall be a sabbath.—Both on the first and last days of this festival there is to be abstention from all servile work. (See Lev. 23:35-36.)
