This chart shows a count to Pentecost that will harmonize Lev-23:16 which says, “even unto the morrow AFTER the seventh Sabbath, shall ye number 50 days,” with Ex-32:5 where Aaron proclamed a Chag to YHWH and it was observed after numbering 50 days after counting the seven Lunar Sabbath complete as prescribed in Lev-23:16.                                                                              

 “1st Month”

1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12  13  14th "Lambs slain".

15th Houses Passed over and thrust out of Rameses ( Numbers 33:3) and 1st day of Unleavened Bread (Lev-23:6).

16th is wave sheaf (Lev-23:11) and morrow after Passover eaten and the day they waved by to Egypt and went out with high hand in there sight  (Numbers 33:3) It was by "night" as the weekly Sabbath/15th ended (Deut-16:1) then you have the 17th 18th 19th   20th   21st  and then you have the 22nd which is the 1st  Sabbath of the seven Sabbaths toward Pentecost, then you have the 23rd   24th   25th 26th   27th   28th   29th is the 2nd Sabbath 30th.

"2nd Month" 

1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8th  3rd Sab. 9   10   11   12 13  14   15th is 4th Sab, and the day that YHWH spoke to the children of Israel (Ex-16:1-29)

16th was the 1st day of manna (Ex-16:1-29)  17th  18  19   20   21   22nd was 5th Sab. And the 1st recorded Sabbath after leaving Egypt, (Ex-16:1-29)  23   24th   25  26  27  28 and the 29th was the 6th Sab. toward Pentecost.

"3rd Month"

1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8th is the 7th Sabbath and the 9th  is the 1st day of the 50 days to be NUMBERED “after” the 7th  Sabbath is COUNTED. Then you have the 10th 11th   12   13   14   15th, which equils 7 days of the 50 day count and on the 16th they came to the Mt and it was on the “same day” that they actually went forth out of Egypt (Ex-19:1) and were told to be ready for 3rd day, (Ex-19:11) . The Book of Jubilees 1:1 also says they came to the mount on 16th of 3rd month.

Then we have the 17th   and the 18th was the 3rd day, counting the 16th, and YHWH spoke to the people on that day (Ex-19:10-24) , this accounts for 10 days of the 50 days that were to be numbered.

 This brings us to the 19th which was the 1st day that Moses went into the Mt for 40 "days" and 40 "nights", (Ex-24:4-18).

Then we have 20   21   22nd   23   24   25   26   27   28   29th   30th, a total of 12 days in the Mt.

"4th Month" 

1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8th   9   10   11   12   13   14   15th   16   17   18   19   20   21   22nd   23   24   25   26   27   28th was the 40th day in the Mt, and the 50th day numbered AFTER the 7th Sabbath was COUNTED, (Lev23:16) and it was the day that Aaron said “tomorrow” is a Feast/Chag to YHWH (Ex-32:5)

I can see how the Chag could come AFTER the 50th day is numbered. The 28th of the 4th month was also the 40th "day" of Moses stay in the Mt.

The 29th was the Chag/Pentecost and Moses’ 40th "night" in the Mt. and the Law was given the next morning of that same day which was at the END of the 40 days and 40 nights (Ex-31:18) and (Deut-9:11) the Pentecost Chag comes AFTER numbering 50 days NOT 49. ("Lev-23:16")

Someone might ask, do you bring a new meat offering on the 50th day or do you number 50 days then bring the new meat offering “after” you have numbered 50 days? i.e. the next day.

It can be argued either way but there is room to shift the count and new moon days and still make it fit. My aim is to show that Numbering 50 days AFTER the 7th Sabbath can be harmonized with Lev-23: 16 “AND” the Chag in Ex-32:5 ALONG with many other things in scripture and nature, but the traditional Pentecost cannot be harmonized with anything, therefore Lev-23:16 is teaching to number the 50 days AFTER the 7th Sabbath complete.

I personally believe that you number 50 days and then bring the new meat offered on the 51st day. I believe the Scripture teaches to number six days and keep the Sabbath on the seventh day AFTER six days are numbered. If the Scripture said to count seven days and then keep the Sabbath/intermission, I would keep the day following the seventh day. I believe the sabbatical year comes after six years are numbered and Jubilees is observed on the 50th year after numbering 49 years. If it said to number 50 years instead of 49 years then the 51st year would be the year of Jubilees, instead of the 50th year. In order to be consistent we must bring the new grain offering AFTER 50 days are numbered, not 49. If it said number one day and then bring the new grain offering, you would bring it on the second day after the first day was numbered. At least that’s the way I see it now.
