Leviticus 16:31 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(31) It shall be a Sabbath of rest unto you.—Literally, a resting day of solemn resting, a Sabbath of Sabbaths, i.e., a day of complete and perfect rest. This phrase, which occurs six times in the Bible, is only applied to weekly Sabbaths (Exo. 16:23; Exo. 31:15; Exo. 35:2; Lev. 23:3), the Day of Atonement (Lev. 16:31; Lev. 23:32), and to the Sabbatical year, or the year of Jubilee (Lev. 25:4), but not to the other festivals.
