שַׁבָּת Strong’s #7676 shabbat

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Exodus 20:8

The verb form of this word is shavat (Strongs #7673) and literally means “to cease” or “stop.” It is first used in Genesis 2:2 where God “ceased” from his work. As ceasing from work is associated with resting, some translate shavat as “rest.” The noun form is the word shabbat and means “a ceasing” or “stopping” and is usually translated as Sabbath, the day God set aside for “resting” from our work (Exodus 20:10).
