Exodus 20:9 states that humanity should complete all of its labor in 6 days. “Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work.”
In The Sabbath, Jewish rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel asks is it possible to do all ones work in 6 days?
Heschel’s interpretation is that we should rest AS IF all of our work is done. He goes further to state that we should rest from even the thought of labor.
