New Defender's Study Bible Notes
23:3 seventh day is the sabbath. The weekly day of rest, commemorating God’s completed work of creation (Exodus 20:8-11), was even more sacred than the seven annual feasts. No “servile” work could be done in the latter (Leviticus 23:8,21,25,35,36), but no work at all on the sabbath. Also, no work could be performed on the great day of atonement (Leviticus 23:28).
