Sabbath or a sabbath is generally a weekly day of rest or time of worship. It is observed differently in 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. The term has been used to describe a similar weekly observance in any of several other traditions; the 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, originally every seventh year.

Famous quotes containing the word sabbath:

    Only man thinning out his kind
    sounds through the Sabbath noon, the blind
    swipe of the pruner and his knife
    busy about the tree of life . . .
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
    Bible: Hebrew Exodus, 20:8-11.

    The fourth commandment.

    Some keep the Sabbath going to Church—
    I keep it, staying at Home—
    With a Bobolink for a Chorister—
    And an Orchard, for a Dome—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
