Exodus 31:14-17

14You shall keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you. Everyone who profanes it shall be put to death. aWhoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15 bSix days shall work be done, but cthe seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. dWhoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. 16Therefore the people of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, observing the Sabbath throughout their generations, as a covenant forever. 17 eIt is a sign forever between me and the people of Israel that fin six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and gon the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.’”
