The Sabbath

The Sabbath (Shabbat in Hebrew)

Read Genesis 1:3-2:3

God didn't rest because He was tired, but because He'd finished His work of creation.

Adam was created on the 6th day, prob late in the day. Shortly after he was created, Adam entered 7th day erev 

Then came the night, with its train of stars, and its great gift of sleep

Then came the morning, Yom Shabbat, a day of rest for God and mankind.

God had created and finished His work, so we could enter His rest from the start.

With a word of His power God made light,
Waters above, below and dry land,
Plants, and fish and birds and beasts,
Then made man, then He rested. (Gen 1:1 - 2:3)

God created the world in six days, (Gen 1:5,8,13,19,23,31. Evening and morning = one day)
Six days of great outpoured energies,
Then when the seventh day arrived, (Gen 2:2-3)
He rested. God rested.
