“And on the seventh day God ('ĕlôhı̂ym) ended his work which he had made; and he rested (shâbath) on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified (qâdash) it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” ~Genesis 2: 2-3
Sanctified: The Hebrew word qâdash, meaning: to appoint, to consecrate, to dedicate, to make holy, to purify.
God designated the seventh day, the Sabbath, a pure day, and declared it sacred. God set it apart to make it holy. Why? Because in that day the creator (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit)1 ended His work and rested. Not because He needed rest, but because it was going to be an example for the human race.
The Sabbath day is a special day that God set apart at the beginning (when there was no sin) to be a holy day of rest.
