Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 2:2

_ _ Genesis 2:2-7. The First Sabbath.

_ _ and he rested on the seventh day — not to repose from exhaustion with labor (see Isaiah 40:28), but ceased from working, an example equivalent to a command that we also should cease from labor of every kind.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 2:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
