“What was created on the seventh day? Tranquility, serenity, peace and repose (Genesis rabba, 10,9). … It is the state wherein [the person] lies still, wherein the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest.”
Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Sabbath (New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2005), 23.
