The Creator does Not Faint, Neither is Weary

We did Certainly Create the Heavens and Earth in Six Days and There Touched Us No Weariness

Isaiah 40:28, Torah
Have you not known?  Have you not heard, [that] the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint, neither is weary?  [There is] no searching of His understanding.

2:255, Qur'an
[For He is] God - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence.  Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep.  To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth.  Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission?  He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills.  His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not.  And He is the Most High, the Most Great.

Psalms 121:2 - 4, Torah
[And so] my help [comes] from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.  He will not allow your foot to be moved, He who keeps you will not slumber.  Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

Acts 7:49 - 50, Gospel
"[For] Heaven [is] My throne, and earth [is] My footstool, what House will you build Me?  Says the Lord, or what [is] the place of My rest?  Has My hand not made all these things?"

50:38, Qur'an
[Yes, and] We did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days, and there touched Us no weariness.


The Sabbath was Only Appointed for those who Differed over it

Wherein you will do No Work, so that your Servants may Rest as Well as you

16:124, Qur'an
The Sabbath was only appointed for those who differed over it.  And indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.

7:144 - 145, Qur'an
[So remember when God] said, "O Moses, I have chosen you over the people with My messages and My words [to you].  So take what I have given you and be among the grateful."  And We wrote for him on the tablets [something] of all things - instruction and explanation for all things, [saying], "Take them with determination and order your people to take the best of it."

Deuteronomy 5:1 - 2, Torah
[So] Moses called all Israel, and said to them, "Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgements which I speak in your ears this day, that you may learn them, and keep, and do them.  [For] the Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb -

Deuteronomy 5:12 - 15, Torah
Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord your God has commanded you.  Six days you will labor, and do all your work.  But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the Lord your God, [in it] you will not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who [is] within your gates; that your manservant and your maidservant may rest as well as you.  And remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and [that] the Lord your God brought you out from there through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm, therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the sabbath day."

7:162 - 163, Qur'an
But those who wronged among them changed [the words] to a statement other than that which had been said to them.  So We sent upon them a punishment from the heaven for the wrong that they were doing.  And [so] ask them about the town that was by the sea - when they transgressed in [the matter of] the sabbath - when their fish came to them openly on their sabbath day, and the day they had no sabbath they did not come to them.  Thus did We give them trial because they were defiantly disobedient.

37:69 - 72, Qur'an
[For] indeed, they found their fathers astray.  So they hastened [to follow] in their footsteps.  And there had already strayed before them most of the former peoples, and We had already sent among them warners.

3:50, Qur'an
[For when Jesus brought clear proofs, he said,] "[I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you.  And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord [in that I cure the blind and the leper], so fear God and obey me."

John 5:16, Gospel
[But] the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

Luke 6:6 - 7, Gospel
[So] it came to also pass on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught, and there was a man whose right hand was withered.  And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.

Mark 3:4 - 5, Gospel
[So he said] to them, "Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil?  To save life, or to kill?"  But they held their peace.  And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he says to the man, "Stretch forth your hand."  And he stretched [it] out, and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Luke 13:14, Gospel
[But] the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said to the people, "There are six days in which men should work, in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day."

Matthew 12:11, Gospel
[So] he said to them, "What man will there be among you, who will have one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift [it] out?

Luke 13:15, Gospel
[You] hypocrite, does not each one of you loose his ox or [his] ass from the stall on the sabbath, and lead [him] away to watering?

Matthew 12:12, Gospel
How much then is a man better than a sheep?  Therefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days."

5:78 - 79, Qur'an
[Thus] cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue of Jesus, the son of Mary, and of David.  That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.  They used not to prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did.  How wretched was that which they were doing.

Isaiah 56:1 - 2, Torah
Thus the Lord says, "Keep judgement, and do justice, for My salvation [is] near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed."  Blessed [is] the man [who] does this, and the Son of man [who] lays hold on it; who keeps the sabbath from polluting it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.


We Took from them a Solemn Covenant, "Do Not Transgress on the Sabbath"

But they did Not Obey, Neither Incline their Ear

*4:154, Qur'an
We raised over them the mount for [refusal of] their covenant; and We said to them, "Enter the gate bowing humbly", and We said to them, "Do not transgress on the sabbath", and We took from them a solemn covenant.

*Jeremiah 17:21 - 23, Torah
[Whereby] the Lord [said]; 'Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring [it] in by the gates of Jerusalem; neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do any work, but make the sabbath day holy, as I commanded your fathers.'  But they did not obey, neither incline their ear, but they made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction."

7:165, Qur'an
[So] when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We saved those who had forbidden evil and seized those who wronged, with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying.

Jeremiah 17:27, Torah
[For God said,] "If you will not hear Me to make the sabbath day holy, and to not bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then I will kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it will not be quenched."

4:47, Qur'an
[So] O you who were given the Scripture, believe in what We have sent down, confirming that which is with you, before We obliterate faces and turn them toward their backs or curse them as We cursed the sabbath-breakers.  And ever is the decree of God accomplished.
