Genesis 2: 1-3
“Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.
And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating he had done.”
(We were always given at least one day a week to rest, simply as a gift)
