"If you value your lives, don't do any work on the Sabbath. Don't carry anything through the city gates or through the door of your house, or anywhere else. Keep the Sabbath day sacred! I gave this commandto your ancestors, but they were stubborn and refused to obey or to be corrected. But if you obey, then Judah and Jerusalem will always be ruled by kings from David's family.
(Jeremiah 17:21-25a CEV)
