The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLeviticus 23:32
It [shall be] unto you a sabbath of rest…
(See Gill on 16:31); and this is thought by some F17 to be the
sabbath spoken of in (Isaiah 58:13) ;
and ye shall afflict your souls; in the ninth [day] of the month at
the fast was to begin at the close of the ninth day, and to
continue to the end of the tenth; so Maimonides F18: he begins to fast
and afflict himself at the evening of the ninth next to the tenth; and
so at the going out of it he continues in his affliction a little while
of the night of the eleventh, next to the tenth, which is confirmed by
from even unto even shall ye celebrate your sabbath;
understand of the sabbath in general; but it seems to have a particular
respect to the sabbath of the day of atonement, which was to last from
the evening of the ninth to the evening of the tenth day.
