Sabbath (/ˈsæbəθ/) is the seventh day of the Hebrew calendar week. According to Exodus 20:8 it is commanded by God to be kept as a holy day of rest, as God rested from creation. It is observed differently among the Abrahamic religions and informs a similar occasion in several other practices. Although many viewpoints and definitions have arisen over the millennia, most originate in the same textual tradition of: ""Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy"".The term has been used to describe a similar weekly observance in any of several other traditions; the first crescent or new moon; any of seven annual festivals in Judaism and some Christian traditions; any of eight annual pagan festivals (usually ""sabbat""); an annual secular holiday; and a year of rest in religious or secular usage, the sabbath year, originally every seventh year.
