    Sabbath is the seventh and sacred day of the week according to Hebrew and Shemitah tradition. That day was reserved for rest and worship only. The fact that agricultural societies - such as ancient Egypt - had adopted this kind of tradition was beneficial to remove the lordship and rule of man over the slaves.
