What the Scriptures says about First Fruits or Yom ha'Bikkurim


1) And I looked and saw a Lamb standing on Mount Tsiyon, and with him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having his fathers name written upon their foreheads. And I heard a voice out of the heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder, and I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a renewed song song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and elders. And no one was able to learn that song expect the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. They are those who were not defiled with women, for they are maidens. They are those following the Lamb wherever he leads them on. They were redeemed from among men, being first-fruits to Elohim and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no falsehood, for they are blameless before the throne of Elohim. And I saw another messenger flying in mid-heaven, holding the everlasting Good News to announce to those dwelling on the earth, even to every nation and tribe and tongue and people, saying with a loud voice, “Fear Elohim and give esteem to him, because the hour of his judgement has come. And worship him who made the heaven and the earth, and sea, and fountains of water.”

On the seventh day is a set apart gathering, you do no regular work.’ ” And Yahovah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest. ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahovah, for your acceptance.
