2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
2 Verse 2. These are my feasts.] The original word moad
is properly applied to any solemn anniversary, by which great
and important ecclesiastical, political, or providential facts
were recorded; See Clarke on Ge 1:14.
Anniversaries of this kind were observed in all nations; and some
of them, in consequence of scrupulously regular observation,
became chronological epochs of the greatest importance in history:
the Olympiads, for example.
