"Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman wakes in vain. In vain you rise early and sit up late, eating the bread of sorrows; thus he gives his loved ones sleep." Psalm 127:1-2

"Come near to me, all you who are labouring and burdened, and I will give you rest... learn from me... I am humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28-29

 

"If you keep your feet from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord's holy day honourable, and if you honour it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob. The mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 58: 13-14

 

"There remains then a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his." Hebrews 4:9-10
