Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 23:3


23:3 Ye shall do no work therein - So it runs in the general for the sabbath day, and for the day of expiation, #Lev 23:28|, excluding all works about earthly employments whether of profit or of pleasure; but upon other feast days he forbids only servile works, as #Lev 23:7|,21,36, for surely this manifest difference in the expressions used by the wife God must needs imply a difference in the things. In all your dwellings - Other feasts, were to be kept before the Lord in Jerusalem only, whither all the males were to come for that end; but the sabbath was to be kept in all places, both in synagogues, and in their private houses.
