A rest; cessation from work.
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 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, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates. ( Exodus 20:9-10 )
