Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 4:4

_ _ he spake — God (Genesis 2:2).

_ _ God did rest the seventh day — a rest not ending with the seventh day, but beginning then and still continuing, into which believers shall hereafter enter. God’s rest is not a rest necessitated by fatigue, nor consisting in idleness, but is that upholding and governing of which creation was the beginning [Alford]. Hence Moses records the end of each of the first six days, but not of the seventh.

_ _ from all his worksHebrew, Genesis 2:2, “from all His work.” God’s “work” was one, comprehending, however, many “works.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 4:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 4:4

For, long after he had rested from his works, he speaks again. Genesis 2:2.
