What are the 8 Precepts which brings Divinity?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
The habitual praxis of the observance day endowed with eight
features brings high reward and blessing, & is of sublime dignity
and greatness! And which are these eight features? In this, any
Noble Disciple considers within himself: Throughout their life the
Arahats eat only one time before noon, avoiding food at night, not
eating at improper and unsuitable hours. May I also this day & night
avoid all taking of food at night and eat only one time before noon!
By that I will follow the track & traits of the perfected Arahats!
I shall then have observed the Uposatha observance day perfectly!
With this fifth praxis is the observance day enriched. Observed
in this very way, the observance day endowed with eight features
brings high - even divine - reward & blessing & is of sublime dignity
and immense greatness...
