Six days work is to be done, but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to Yahweh. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death, yes, death. Bible

“a Sabbath of complete rest.” The Hebrew is shabbath shabbathon, more literally, “a Sabbath of Sabbath observance.” For more information, see commentary on Leviticus 25:4.

“death, yes, death.” For this construction and translation of the Hebrew text, see commentary on Genesis 2:16.
