Verses 1 Through 3
Thus the heavens and the earth,
and all the host of them, were finished.
And on the seventh day God
ended His work which He had done, and

rested on the seventh day

from all His work which He had done.

because in it He
rested from all His work
which God had created and made.

Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things,
both what they had done and what they had taught.
And He said to them,
“Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and

So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.

rejoice because
