    BIBLE REASONS FOR THE SEVENTH DAY AND THE CLAIMS OF FIRST-DAY CONTRASTED

    God claimed the seventh day as his own, in many scriptures, and at many different times. He never so claimed the first day, but gave it to man for labor.WDK 7.4

    He blessed and sanctified the seventh day. He neither blessed nor sanctified the first day.WDK 7.5

    He commanded that the seventh day be kept holy. He never commanded to keep the first day. There is but one commandment in the Bible for a weekly Sabbath, and that says the seventh day.WDK 7.6

    God uttered fearful threatenings against those who profane the seventh day. He has spoken nothing against laboring on the first day.WDK 7.7

    He has given great and precious promises to those who keep holy the seventh day. He has not spoken one word of promise or blessing for keeping the first day.WDK 7.8

    Everything that is necessary to give importance to the day—that is calculated to induce a proper observance of the day—is produced in favor of the seventh day. But nothing of this kind can be produced in favor of the first day—no sanctity, no commandment, no penalty, no blessing. J.H.W.WDK 7.9
