Bible: Exodus 31:13-17

31:13 Tell the Israelites, ‘Surely you must keep my Sabbaths, 1  for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 2  31:14 So you must keep the Sabbath, for it is holy for you. Everyone who defiles it 3  must surely be put to death; indeed, 4  if anyone does 5  any 6  work on it, then that person will be cut off from among his 7  people. 31:15 Six days 8  work may be done, 9  but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, 10  holy to the Lord; anyone who does work on the Sabbath day must surely be put to death. 31:16 The Israelites must keep the Sabbath by observing the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 31:17 It is a sign between me and the Israelites forever; for in six days 11  the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.’ 12
