What day of the week was the Sabbath day during the Old Testament time?

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. (Thou shalt sanctify the holy day.)

What does this mean? We should fear and love God that we may not despise preaching and his Word, but hold it sacred and gladly hear and learn it.

The Old Testament day of rest was the Sabbath day or Saturday. On that day the people gathered to hear God´s Word. Sabbath means rest. The Sabbath foreshadowed Christ in whom we have forgiveness for our sins without having to earn it by our own works. As a result, our conscience is at rest and we are eternally blessed.

Lev. 23:3: Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation.

Heb. 4:3: We which have believed do enter into rest.

Matt. 11:28: Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
