What does Leviticus 23:3 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Leviticus 23:3

Six days shall work be done
Or may be done by men, any sort of lawful work and honest labour, for the sustenance of themselves and families: but the seventh day [is] the sabbath of rest;
from all bodily labour and work of any kind; typical of rest by Christ and in him: an holy convocation;
when the people were called to holy exercises, to pray and praise, and hear the word, and offer sacrifice: ye shall do no work [therein];
not any at all, see ( Exodus 31:15 ) ( Exodus 35:2 Exodus 35:3 ) ; it [is] the sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings:
other feasts were kept in the sanctuary, in the tabernacle or temple, or where they were; but this was not only observed there and in their synagogues, but in their private houses, or wherever they were, whether, travelling by sea or land; and so the Targum of Jonathan and Aben Ezra interpret it.
