Note 1. - "Moses says, that in just six days the world, and all that is therein, was made, and that the seventh day was a rest, and a release from the labour of such operations; whence it is that we celebrate a rest from our labours on that day, and call it the Sabbath, which word denotes rest in the Hebrew tongue."-Josephus in "History of the Jews" (Whiston's translation).

Note 2. - "God's sanctifying the day is equivalent to His commanding men to sanctify it. As at the close of the creation, the seventh day was thus set apart by the Most High for such purposes, without limitation to age or country, the observance is obligatory upon the whole human race to whom, in the wisdom of Providence, it may be communicated."-Dr. Albert Barnes.

Note 3. - "The religious observance of the Sabbath was the first statute or command of God to men. This institution was a sign between God and them to keep them in remembrance of the creation of the world."-Dr. Adam Clarke's "Commentary."

Note 4. - "The reason for which the commandment itself was originally given, namely, as a memorial of God's having rested from the creation of the world, cannot be transferred from the seventh day to the first; nor can any new motive be substituted in its place, whether the resurrection of our Lord or any other, without the sanction of a divine commandment."-Prose Works of John Milton (Bohn edition).
