Exodus 20:8 – 11 Remember ( perpetual remembrance) the sabbath day to keep it holy. ( It cannot in any wise be violated) Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work ( the warring of the natural man with the spiritual man, so that the spiritual man becomes the master and the natural man becomes the servant, and there is harmony between the two.) But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, (Not to do anything from ones own desires or ego, or from ones own will or ones own ways, or from the natural man separated from the spiritual man, but willing and thinking, only from The Lord) thou, nor thy son, ( from ones own intellect) nor thy daughter, ( from ones own will) thy manservant, (from ones natural man or outer as to truth) nor thy maidservant, ( from ones natural or outer man as to his will) nor thy cattle, (from ones natural as to its affections in general in the natural man) nor thy stranger ( from ones knowledge stored in ones memory) that is within thy gates: The gates is where one acquires these knowledges from learning and it enters into the memory) For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, ( again the combat of temptations, with heaven, or the inner man, and with the earth, combats of temptations of the natural man) the sea, (the sensuous or the senses of the natural man) and all that in them is, and rested ( rest and peace as their is no longer combat) the seventh day ( the conjunction or connection of the inner man with outer man, and conjunction, or conjoining with the Church, and with God) wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, ( Rest and peace from combat ) and hallowed it, ( The holy of the Lord, with no violation, that is they who are in the good of love, consequently who are in heavenly peace ).
Isaiah 58:13 14 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight,the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalthonour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine ownpleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth,and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth ofthe Lord hath spoken it.
