One in Messiah Congregation

The one commandment that begins with " Remember " has been forgotten, the 4th commandment, the Sabbath.

Exod.20 [8] Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy .

זָכוֹר אֶת־יוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת, לְקַדְּשׁוֹ

[9 ] Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:[ 10] But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:[11 ] For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
