Clarke's Commentary on Exodus 31 :17

Rested, and was refreshed - God, in condescension to human weakness, applies to himself here what belongs to man. If a man religiously rests on the Sabbath, both his body and soul shall be refreshed; he shall acquire new light and life.

Barnes' Commentary on Exodus 31 :17
