“You were created,  you were brought into being, you’re sustained, you’re saved, you’re forgiven, you’re being redeemed as you live. We should be leaping with joy at the contemplation of this!”

 

Here is the Biblical Text from the JPS Hebrew-English TANAKH

Exodus Chapter 20:7-11

You shall not swear falsely by the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not clear one who swears falsely by his name. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. You shall not do any work. You, your son or daughter, your male or female slave, or your cattle or the stranger who is within your settlements. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth and sea and all that is within them. And he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
