Hebrews 4:4

Somewhere on this wise (pou outw). See John 2:6 for pou ti for a like indefinite allusion to an Old Testament quotation. Here it is Genesis 2:2 (cf. Exodus 20:11 ; Exodus 31:17 ). Moffatt notes that Philo quotes Genesis 2:2 with the same "literary mannerism." Rested (katepausen). First aorist active indicative of katapauw, intransitive here, but transitive in verse Genesis 8 . It is not, of course, absolute rest from all creative activity as Jesus shows in John 5:17 . But the seventh day of God's rest was still going on (clearly not a twenty-four hour day).
