23 then he said to them, “This is what the Lord[a]meant: Tomorrow is a sabbath observance, a holy sabbath to the Lord. Bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over [b]put aside to be kept until morning.”24 So they [c]put it aside until morning, as Moses had ordered, and it did not become foul nor was there any worm in it.25 Moses said, “Eat it today, for today is a sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field.26 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the sabbath, there will be [d]none.”
27 It came about on the seventh day that some of the people went out to gather, but they found none.28 Then the Lord said to Moses, “How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My [e]instructions?29 See, [f]the Lord has given you the sabbath; therefore He gives you bread for two days on the sixth day. Remain every man in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”

6 “Also the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, To minister to Him, and to love the name of the Lord, To be His servants, every one who keeps from profaning the sabbath And holds fast My covenant;
