New Defender's Study Bible Notes
17:27 hallow the sabbath day. In God’s ten commandments, He required the hallowing of the sabbath day, in commemoration of His completed work of creation (Exodus 20:8-11). Those who had rejected Him as Creator, in favor of the evolutionism of their idolatrous neighbors, thus saw no reason to keep His sabbaths. But eventually, God must punish such unbelief and disobedience.
