Bible Basis: Exodus 31:12-18
Bible Truth: God commanded Moses and the Israelites to rest on the Sabbath.
Memory Verse: "Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people." - Exodus 31:13-14
