Numbers 29:8

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible
Verses 7-11

The offering on the great Day of Atonement was the same with that just specified. The great ceremonies of the day are described in Leviticus 16.

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
There were more sacred solemnities in the seventh month than in any other. It was the space between harvest and seed-time. The more leisure we have from the pressing occupations of this life, the more time we should spend in the immediate service of God. The blowing of the trumpets was appointed, Le 22:24. Here they are directed what sacrifices to offer on that day. Those who would know the mind of God in the Scriptures, must compare one part with another. The latter discoveries of Divine light explain what was dark, and supply what was wanting, in the former, that the man of God may be perfect.
