Evolution of Sabbath Pt 2.6

Calls to Obedience

There is a Psalm for Sabbath

Psa 92:1 NASB – A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day. It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;

The next instance is the Prophets begin to preach the turning back to Yahweh. This message associates justice, righteousness, keeping Sabbath, and refraining from doing evil as Yahwehs commands.

Isa 56:1 NASB – Thus says the LORD, “Preserve justice and do righteousness, For My salvation is about to come And My righteousness to be revealed.
Isa 56:2 NASB – “How blessed is the man who does this, And the son of man who takes hold of it; Who keeps from profaning the sabbath, And keeps his hand from doing any evil.”

God is angry about people not delighting in Sabbath, and being greedy as well as un-benevolent and taking advantage of the poor.

Amo 8:4 NASB – Hear this, you who trample the needy, to do away with the humble of the land,

Amo 8:5 NASB – saying, “When will the new moon be over, So that we may sell grain, And the sabbath, that we may open the wheat market, To make the bushel smaller and the shekel bigger, And to cheat with dishonest scales,
Amo 8:6 NASB – So as to buy the helpless for money And the needy for a pair of sandals, And that we may sell the refuse of the wheat?”
