New Defender's Study Bible Notes
35:2 six days. The institution of the six-day work week and the subsequent day of rest is referred to specifically at least ten times in the Scriptures (Exodus 16:26; 20:9-11; 23:12; 31:15-17; 35:2; Leviticus 23:3; Deuteronomy 5:13; 16:8; Ezekiel 46:1; Luke 13:14). This was specifically said by God to be in commemoration of creation week (Exodus 20:8-11), and was considered by Him to be so important that failure to observe it by His elect nation was a capital crime, punishable by death. Surely this fact demonstrates the infinite importance placed by God on the fact of His recent, fiat, completed creation, as well as His displeasure with those who deny it.
