"And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, [it was] very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day." {Gen 1:31} + "For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it." {Exd 20:11} + "Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed." {Exd 23:12} + "It [is] a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed." {Exd 31:17} + "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." {Deu 5:14} + "If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, [from] doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking [thine own] words:" {Isa 58:13} + "But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." {Jhn 5:17} + "For he spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works." {Hbr 4:4}
seventh day God:
The LXX, Syriac, and the Samaritan Text read the sixth day, which is probably the true reading; as ו [Strong's H2053], which stands for six, might easily be changed into ז, 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.
