    Clarke's Commentary on Numbers 7:48

    On the seventh day - Both Jewish and Christian writers have been surprised that this work of offering went forward on the seventh day, which they suppose to have been a Sabbath, as well as on the other days. But

    1. There is no absolute proof that this seventh day of offering was a Sabbath.

    2. Were it even so, could the people be better employed than in thus consecrating themselves and their services to the Lord?

    We have already seen that every act was a religious act; and we may rest assured that no day was too holy for the performance of such acts as are recorded here.
