Genesis 2:2 (King James Version)
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
- And on
- 1:31 Exodus 20:11 ; 23:12 31:17 Deuteronomy 5:14 ; Isaiah 58:13 ; John 5:17 ; Hebrews 4:4

- easily be changed into [zayin,] which denotes seven.* rested. Or, rather, ceased, as the Hebrew word is not opposed to weariness, but to action; as the Divine Being can neither know fatigue, nor stand in need of rest.
