Understanding Yahweh's Sabbaths
(Today, Do any of them Apply to us?)

Return to New Articles * Read The PDF Version

Yahweh introduced us to his seventh day in Genesis 2:3, by stating, "And Elohim blessed the Seventh day, and hallowed [qadash] it,—because, therein, rested [shabath] he from all his work which Elohim, by creating, had made." Yahweh has presented to us many days of shabath (rest), as will be unfolded in this article. Colossians 2:16-17 declares to the Body of the Christ, "Let no one, therefore, be judging, you,—in eating and in drinking, or in respect of feast, or new moon, or sabbath,—Which are a shadow of the things to come, whereas, the body, is of the Christ," but Exodus 35:2 declares, "Six days, shall work be done, but, on the seventh day, shall there be to you a holy sabbath-keeping, unto Yahweh,—whosoever doeth work therein, shall be put to death." The fourth Commandment commanded the Israelites to, "Remember the Sabbath day, to hallow it: Six days, shalt thou labour, and do all thy work; but, the seventh day, is a Sabbath, unto Yahweh thy God,—thou shalt do no work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy servant, nor thy handmaid, nor thy beast, nor thy sojourner who is within thy gates. For, in six days, did Yahweh make the heavens and the earth, and the sea—and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day,—for this cause, Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it " (Ex. 20:8-11). Christ told us in Mark 2:27, "...The Sabbath, for man, was made, and not, man, for, the Sabbath." We have a very important puzzle before us, concerning the rest Yahweh desires for us or may I say, commands, of us. The above verses cover many different ages; ages when commandments did not exist, then existed, then did not exist, such as was with the eating of swine. It is our duty, to put together this puzzle, to the best of our ability, thereby obeying our Father's will.

Shabath, Shabbath & Shabbathown

Shabath (#07673) is a verb, used seventy-one times, meaning to  cease, desist, rest; first usage being in Genesis 2:2. Shabbath (#07676) is a noun used one hundred and eight times; first usage is Exodus 16:23. Shabbathown (#07677) is a noun, meaning  Sabbath observance, sabbatism, used eleven times; first usage is Exodus 16:23.  Leviticus 23:32, speaking of the Day of Propitiation (seventh month, tenth day) contains all three words, which states, "A Sabbath [Shabbath] of sacred rest [shabbathown], shall it be unto you, so shall ye humble your souls,—on the ninth of the month, in the evening, from evening to evening, shall ye keep [shabath] your Sabbath [Shabbath]. This day has nothing to do with the seventh day of the week; the weekly Sabbath.
