Rest

REST מְנוּחָה, H4957, (נָוָה, H5657, rest, cessation, peace, quiet; ἀνάπαυσις, κατάπαυσις, rest, cessation from labor, refreshment). Rest is frequently referred to in the [[Bible]]. [[God]] first set the example, and then offered it as a [[blessing]] to [[man]]. When God finished His [[work]] of [[creation]], “he rested on the [[seventh day]] from all his work which he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it” (Gen 2:2, 3). As with God, rest is a reward to man for his work. It is a tonic for the tired, and a release from labor. Rest restores and relieves [[body]], [[mind]], and [[soul]] overwrought from various [[Burden|burdens]].
