Genesis 2:2

Context
2:2 By 1  the seventh day God finished the work that he had been doing, 2  and he ceased 3  on the seventh day all the work that he had been doing.

1 tn Heb “on/in the seventh day.”

2 tn Heb “his work which he did [or “made”].”

3 tn The Hebrew term שָׁבַּת (shabbat) can be translated “to rest” (“and he rested”) but it basically means “to cease.” This is not a rest from exhaustion; it is the cessation of the work of creation.
