1. Does the fourth commandment concern the time of worship? Yes: for there is a time to every purpose, Eccl. 3:1. Must our worship be confined to that time? No: for we must pray always, Eph. 6:18. But is that appointed for the certain time? Yes: Blow up the trumpet in the time appointed, Ps. 81:3. Is it the will of God we should take special notice of this command? Yes: for he has said, Remember it. Are we apt to forget it? Yes: they have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, Ezek. 22:26.
2. Must we keep holy the sabbath day? Yes: Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, Deut. 5:12. Is a sabbath a day of rest? Yes: It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, Lev.16:31. Must we labour the six days, and do all our work? Yes: For in the sweat of thy face shall thou eat bread, Gen. 3:19. But is not work for God part of our work? Yes: for we must work the works of God, John 6:28. Must we not then do that on the six days? Yes: Every day will I bless thee, Ps. 145:2. But must we especially do it on sabbath days? Yes: for it is the Holy of the Lord, Isa. 58:13. Must we therefore rest from other work on that day? Yes: that we may attend upon the Lord without distraction, 1 Cor. 7:35.
3. Must children keep holy the sabbath day? Yes: Thou, and thy son, and thy daughter. And servants? Yes: That thy man-servant and maid-servant may rest as well as thou, Deut. 5:14. And is there good reason for the sanctification of the sabbath? Yes: Ye shall keep my sabbaths, I am the Lord your God, Lev. 19:3.
