Genesis 2:2–3And 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. 3Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He RESTED from all His work which God had created and made.
Exodus 20:8“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
23Then he said to them, “This is what the Lord has said: ‘Tomorrow isA SABBATH REST, A HOLY SABBATH to the Lord. Bake what you will bake today, and boil what you will boil; and lay up for yourselves all that remains, to be kept until morning.’ ”
24So they laid it up till morning, as Moses commanded; and it did not stink, nor were there any worms in it.
25Then Moses said, “Eat that today, for today isA SABBATH to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field.
26Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, THE SABBATH, there will be none.”
27Now it happened that some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather, but they found none.
28And the Lord said to Moses, “How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My laws?
29See! For the Lord has given you THE SABBATH; therefore He gives you on the sixth day bread for two days. Let every man remain in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”
30So the people rested on the seventh day.
13“You came down also ON MOUNT SINAI, And spoke with them from heaven, And gave them just ordinances and true laws, Good statutes and commandments.
14YOU MADE KNOWN TO THEM YOUR HOLY SABBATH, And commanded them precepts, statutes and laws, By the hand of Moses Your servant.
8“Remember THE SABBATH DAY, to keep it holy.
9Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
10but the seventh day isTHE SABBATH OF THE LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates.
11For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed THE SABBATH DAY and hallowed it.
12And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
13“Speak also TO the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you THROUGHOUT YOUR GENERATIONS, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.
14You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.
15Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
16Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as A PERPETUAL COVENANT.
17It 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 40:15You shall anoint them, as you anointed their father, that they may minister to Me as priests; for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.”
Leviticus 24:9And it shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place; for it is most holy to him from THE OFFERINGS of the Lord made by fire, by A PERPETUAL statute.”
Exodus 21:6then his master shall bring him to the judges. He shall also bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him FOREVER.
Leviticus 16:34This shall be an EVERLASTING statute for you, TO MAKE ATONEMENT for the children of Israel, for all their sins, once a year.” And he did as the Lord commanded Moses.
12‘Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you.
13Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
14but the seventh day isthe Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you.
15And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.
Deuteronomy 5:3The LordDID NOT MAKE this covenant with our fathers [Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob], but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive.
Ezekiel 20:10–12, 20
10“Therefore I made them go out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness.
11And I gave them My statutes and showed them My judgments, ‘which, if a man does, he shall live by them.’
12Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign BETWEEN THEM AND ME, that they might know that I am the Lord who sanctifies them.
20hallow My Sabbaths, and THEY WILL BE A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND YOU, that you may know that I am the Lord your God.’
Hebrews 7:12For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily A CHANGE IN THE LAW as well.
22Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. YOU SHALL LISTEN TO HIM in whatever he tells you.
23And it shall be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people.’
Hebrews 3:3Jesus has been found worthy of GREATER HONOR THAN MOSES, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself.
