but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns, so that your male and female servants may rest, as you do.
But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter or your male servant or your female servant, or your ox or your donkey or any of your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you.
but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the LORD your God. On that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your oxen and donkeys and other livestock, and any foreigners living among you. All your male and female servants must rest as you do.
Nor thine ox, nor thine ass
In ( Exodus
20:10 ) , it is only in general said,
nor thy cattle:
here by way of illustration and explanation the ox and the ass
are particularly mentioned; the one being used in ploughing
ground, and treading out the corn, and the other in carrying
burdens; and it is added,
nor any of thy cattle;
as their camels, or whatever else they were wont to use in any
kind of service; they were none of them to do any kind of work on
the sabbath day. The following clause also is not used before,
which expresses the end of this institution:
that thy manservant and thy maidservant may have rest as
well as thee;
which if the cattle had not rest, they could not have, being
obliged to attend them at the plough or elsewhere; and this
respects not only hired, but bond servants and maidens.
