Scriptures on the Sabbath
Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.Genesis 2:1-3
Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. It is
a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for
in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ”Exodus 31:16-17
And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the
Sabbath. Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.”Mark 2:27-28
