Sunday being the first day of the week, then naturally Saturday is the Sabbath - the day of rest. Even God rested on the seventh day, but He taught us that he even has authority over the Sabbath, and if we need to work on that day, it's okay. The Sabbath was made for us, not us for the Sabbath; (Mark 2:27-28). God commands us to keep the Sabbath (Saturday) Holy. Rest is necessary, but God also wants us to know and realize that some works are needful and acceptable on the Sabbath; (St. Matthew 12:11-12, St. Mark 2:23-28).

Note: Biblical days = Evening to evening. Sabbath begins Friday at evening and ends Saturday at evening.

Hebrews 4:
“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it."

When honoring the Sabbath, stay in your home, do not work, neither buy nor sell; for such things pollute the Sabbath. Rest and be refreshed (Exodus 16:29-30, Exodus 31:12-18, Matthew 12:7-12).
