Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 23:14-18

_ _ Three times ... keep a feast ... in the year — This was the institution of the great religious festivals — “The feast of unleavened bread,” or the passover — “the feast of harvest,” or pentecost — “the feast of ingathering,” or the feast of tabernacles, which was a memorial of the dwelling in booths in the wilderness, and which was observed in the seventh month (Exodus 12:2). All the males were enjoined to repair to the tabernacle and afterwards the temple, and the women frequently went. The institution of this national custom was of the greatest importance in many ways: by keeping up a national sense of religion and a public uniformity in worship, by creating a bond of unity, and also by promoting internal commerce among the people. Though the absence of all the males at these three festivals left the country defenseless, a special promise was given of divine protection, and no incursion of enemies was ever permitted to happen on those occasions.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Exodus 23:10-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Exodus 23:14

The Passover, Pentecost, and feast of Tabernacles, in spring, summer, and autumn, were the three times appointed for their attendance; not in winter, because travelling was then uncomfortable; nor in the midst of their harvest.
