"Remember the day of Shabbat, to
keep it holy. Pursue all your labor for six days, and do all your "Melachah"
(the term "Melachah" to be defined in Item 3, below). But the seventh
day is Shabbat to the L-rd your G-d; On it you may do no "Melachah,"
neither you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor
your female servant, nor your cattle, nor the stranger who is within
your gates. For in six days G-d made the heavens and the earth, the
sea and everything that is within it; And he rested on the seventh day;Therefore, G-d did bless the day of Shabbat and He made it holy." (Shemot
19: 8-11; the Shabbat Command as recorded in the Shemot version of the
the Day of Shabbat to keep it holy, as the L-rd your G-d has
commanded. Pursue all your labor for six days, and do all your "Melachah."
But the seventh day is Shabbat for the L-rd your G-d; Do no "Melachah"
- not you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female
servant, nor your ox or donkey or any of your cattle, nor the
stranger who resides within your gates, in order that your male and
female servants shall rest, as you rest. And you shall remember
that you were a slave in the Land of Egypt, and the L-rd your G-d
took you out from there with a strong hand and an outstretched arm;Therefore, did the L-rd your G-d command you to observe the Day
of Shabbat." (Devarim 5: 12-15; the Shabbat Command as recorded in
the Devarim version of the Ten Commandments.
