By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.
For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: "On the seventh day God rested from all his works."
There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;
Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.
Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them."
