    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 23:16

    The morrow after the seventh week was the 50th day after the conclusion of a week of weeks. The day is called in the Old Testament, "the feast of harvest" Exodus 23:16, "the feast of weeks," "the feast of the first fruits of wheat harvest" Exodus 34:22; Deuteronomy 16:10, and "the day of the first fruits" Numbers 28:26. The word "Pentecost" used in the heading of this chapter in English Bibles is found only in the Apocrypha and the New Testament, Tobit 2:1; 2 Macc. 12:32; Acts 2:1; Acts 20:16; 1 Corinthians 16:8.
