“Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land which I am going to give to you and
reap its harvest, then you shall bring in the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest.
‘You are also to count off seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years, so that you have the time of the seven sabbaths of years, namely, forty-nine years.
You shall celebrate
the Feast of Weeks, that is, the first fruits of the wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering at the turn of the year.
You shall count seven weeks for yourself; you shall begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain.
