29 See! The Lord has given you the Sabbath; therefore on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Remain each of you in his place; let no one go out of his place on the seventh day.” 30 So the people (A)rested on the seventh day.

(C)Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. 16 Therefore the people of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, observing the Sabbath throughout their generations, as a covenant forever. 17 (D)It is a sign forever between me and the people of Israel that (E)in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and (F)on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.’”

15 In those days I saw in Judah people treading winepresses (A)on the Sabbath, and bringing in heaps of grain and loading them on donkeys, and also wine, grapes, figs, and all kinds of loads, (B)which they brought into Jerusalem on the Sabbath day. And (C)I warned them on the day when they sold food. 16 Tyrians also, who lived in the city, brought in fish and all kinds of goods and sold them on the Sabbath to the people of Judah, in Jerusalem itself! 17 (D)Then I confronted the nobles of Judah and said to them, “What is this evil thing that you are doing, (E)profaning the Sabbath day? 18 (F)Did not your fathers act in this way, and did not our God bring all this disaster[a] on us and on this city? Now you are bringing more wrath on Israel by profaning the Sabbath.”
