Exodus 35:1-3

Rules about the Sabbath day

1 Moses brought all the Israelites together. Then he said to them, ‘These are the Lord's commands to you. 2 You may work for six days each week, but the seventh day will be a holy day for you. It will be a day of complete rest to give honour to the Lord. If anyone works on that day, you must punish him with death. 3 Do not light a fire in any of your homes on a Sabbath day.’
