Sabbath comes from the Hebraic word Shabat, which literally means to stop or cease.

God created this earth, all of the plant and animal inhabitants, with the culmination of creation being man.

God then blesses the seventh day, introducing the first mention of something being holy: Rest.

This blessing of Sabbath is a foundational principle God imparts to humanity.
