2:2, “Elohim blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested from all his work which Elohim created and made.”
There was no Jew at this point. The Jews came 2500 years later.
Yahuwah could have accomplished creation with one word but he chose to employ six days to give us the Sabbath.
“The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” Mark 2:27. The following grammatical rule is worthy of notice: a noun without an adjective is invariably taken in its broadest extension. Man is used without restriction; hence all mankind is included here.

Yahuwah honored the Sabbath by writing the commandments with His own hand twice; more so the Sabbath stands in advance of the other nine commandments because it is established by the EXAMPLE of the Lawgiver Himself. For after 6 working days of Creation, Yahuwah rested on the Sabbath. Likewise we will keep the Sabbath in heaven. (Isaiah 66:23, 24).

those creatures that share the labors of man. The stranger and the foreigner
also must keep it. But the same persons could not partake of the Passover until
they were made members of the Hebrew church by circumcision.
Man; man therefore owes everything to Yahuwah; hence it was the benevolence of the
Creator that gave to man six days for his wants. And in setting apart the
seventh day, Yahuwah was reserving unto himself one of the seven days, when he

The fourth commandment therefore does not require man to give something of his own to Yahuwah. To observe this day is to render to Yahuwah the things that are his; to appropriate it to ourselves is imply to rob Yahuwah.
