ἑορτὴ δέ ἐστιν ἐν ἑορτῇ ἡ μετὰ τὴν πρώτην εὐθὺς ἡμέραν, ἥτις ἀπὸ τοῦ συμβεβηκότος ὀνομάζεται δράγμα• τοῦτο γὰρ ἀπαρχὴ προσάγεται τῷ βωμῷ καὶ τῆς χώρας, ἣν ἔλαχε τὸ ἔθνος οἰκεῖν, καὶ τῆς συμπάσης γῆς, ὡς εἶναι τὴν ἀπαρχὴν καὶ τοῦ ἔθνους ἰδίαν καὶ ὑπὲρ ἅπαντος ἀνθρώπων γένους κοινήν.
Can someone critique my translation?
And, there is a feast during the feast (the day just after the first [day of the feast]), which is named "the sheaf," from what takes place. For, they bring this to the altar as the first-fruits of both the land which the nation received to dwell in, and of the entire earth, to be the first-fruits of both the individual nation and also for the entire common race of mankind.
