35 Rest Quotes for Sabbath Day Meditation

MsDora, former teacher and Christian counselor presents practical Scriptural principles for joyful everyday living.

The principle of Sabbath rest came from God, who according to the Genesis account, worked for six days and rested on the seventh. There must have been reasons other than physical for His rest, because “He never grows weak or weary.” (Isaiah 40:28 NLT).

The New Testament declaration that the Sabbath was made for man (Mark 2: 27) was Jesus’ response to the complaint that His disciples were refusing to rest. They were picking corn to eat, and Jesus advised that appeasing hunger was a lawful Sabbath day activity. God blessed and made holy the Sabbath day to help us improve our lives, not to trap us into legalism.

The following 35 quotes remind us that Sabbath observance provides time not only for the physical rest which the workday schedule disallows, but also for mental and spiritual renewal, family togetherness, and focus on matters of eternal value. Let's appreciate and meditate on the many benefits of Sabbath rest.

Physical Rest

1. "No matter how hard we try, we don’t have the capacity to work seven days a week. We need to take this time [Sabbath] to rejuvenate." Dan Buettner

2. "Work is a blessing. God has so arranged the world that work is necessary ... It is the joy of work well done that enables us to enjoy rest." —Elisabeth Elliot

3. "When we cease from pursuing our material goals for one day each week, we’re saying, ‘God, I trust You to … provide for my needs seven days a week even if I only work for six of them.’" —Robert Shaw

4. "Like the Sabbath, the week originated at creation … Six days were employed in the work of creation; upon the seventh, God rested, and he then blessed this day, and set it apart as a day of rest for man." —Ellen White

5. "The seventh day, as hallowed by God in Eden, was not Jewish, but divine; it was not the memorial of the flight of Israel from Egypt, but of the Creator's rest." —J. N. Andrews

6. "A day of rest yields a hundred days of progress." —Adrienne Posey

7. I find my thoughts drifting to the Sabbath, the day of rest, the seventh day of the week … when one can feel that one’s work is done, and one may, in good conscience, rest. —Oliver Sacks

8. "One day a week I seek to rest from earthly toil and sorrow. Revitalized, I find the strength to battle new tomorrows." —Richelle E. Goodrich

9. "Sabbath ... is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life." —Priscilla Shirer

Mental Freedom

10. "Keeping the Sabbath teaches us to trust God and enjoy Him…It’s God’s way to set us free from worry and anxiety, ambition and adrenaline, self-importance and anger, even loneliness." —Bill Gaultiere

11. "Sabbath is the celebration of life beyond and outside productivity." —WalterBrueggemann

12. "Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us." —Maya Angelou

13. "If we only stop when we are finished with all our work, we will never stop, because our work is never completely done... Sabbath ... liberates us from the need to be finished." —Wayne Muller

14. "The Sabbath commandment included: “Remember that you were a slave” (Deuteronomy 5:15). This makes the Sabbath a celebration of freedom—and a reminder to not oppress others." —Mike Bennett

15. "The Sabbath is a day to let go, to stop trying to control people and situations…to respond to him rather than depending on your own abilities to make things happen." —Bill Gaultiere

16. "While observing the Sabbath, Seventh-day Adventists surround themselves with others in their church. This socialization helps relieve stress." —Forever Young

17. "A world without a Sabbath would be like a man without a smile, like a summer without flowers ... It is the joyous day of the whole week." —Henry Ward Beecher

18. "As tensions continue to mount in contemporary society, the traditional Sabbath that requires an all-but-total separation from work-a-day tasks and concerns and worry, becomes a … precious resource for life." —Daniel Gordis

Spiritual Blessings

19. "God never intended that the Sabbath should be a burden to any one, but rather a blessing; and he will now make it such to all who honor him in its observance." —Ellen White

20. "Truly, sacred rest is soul care. We honor quiet time alone with God. We intentionally step away from the chaos of life. We unplug from noise and distractions. We relish moments of tranquility." —Dana Arcuri

21. "We observe the Sabbath best when we use it for both rest and worship." —Billy Graham

22. "Thank God for the solitude of the Sabbath." —Lailah Gifty Akita

23. "I don’t need a rest from God. What I need is a rest from everything that is not God." —Craig D. Lounsbrough

24. "But just as your body needs sleep, your soul needs time to rest in God." —Craig Groeschel

25. "Sacred rest is not just about sleeping or taking it easy…The purpose is to promote a healthier mindset, attitudes, boundaries, relationships, productivity, and wellness as a whole person; body, mind, and spirit." —Dana Arcuri

26. "When we trust God by taking our hands off our work, what we give up through Sabbath ultimately benefits those around us." —Shelly Miller

27. "Sabbath isn't about resting perfectly; it's about resting in the One who is perfect." Shelly Miller

Family Time

28. "One of God’s 10 Commandments actually regulates time—for our benefit and for our children. It’s the Sabbath." —Mike Bennett

29. "The meeting for worship occupy only a part of the Sabbath. The portion remaining to the family may be made the most sacred and precious season of all the Sabbath hours." —Ellen White

30. "The restful nature of this day creates the perfect framework to … worship together, enjoy the beauty and wonder of God’s creation as a family unit." —Sabbath Truth

Bible Affirmations

(from the NIV unless stated otherwise)

31. "Six days you are to do your work, but on the seventh day you shall cease (shabath) from labor in order that your ox and your donkey may rest (nuach) … as well as your stranger, may refresh (naphash) themselves." —Exodus 23:12 (Berean Bible Study)

32. "You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the Lord, who makes you holy." —Exodus 31:13

33. “When the neighboring peoples bring merchandise or grain to sell on the Sabbath, we will not buy from them on the Sabbath or on any holy day." —Nehemiah 10:31

34. "Then they [the women who accompanied Jesus to the cross] went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment." —Luke 23:56

35. "There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God ... Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience." —Hebrews 4: 9, 11

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on December 04, 2020:

Thanks, Brinafr3sh , for the affirmation. Glad that you experience freedom from negativity.

Brinafr3sh from West Coast, United States on December 04, 2020:

Hi Ms.Dora, meditation helped me decrease anxiety and worry. I replaced negative thoughts with Bible-meditation, prayer, and a better breathing pattern. Thanks

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on December 01, 2020:

Thanks, Brenda. I like that same quote. When we think of all the things that are not God, that gives us a lot to rest from.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on December 01, 2020:

Lovely write, Ms. Dora.

I do like the one that says i need a rest from everything that is not God.

The beginning that states there must be a reason since he doesn't get weak or weary is so true...I wish I didn't get weak or weary.

Take care.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on December 01, 2020:

Thanks for asking

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on December 01, 2020:

MsDora all good with me and hope you are doing well too

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on December 01, 2020:

Thanks, Devika. The Sabbath rest benefits us no matter where we are. Hoping that all is well with you.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on December 01, 2020:

Hi Dora Great hub! It is important to keep fit in all these aspects of life. You make us see what can work.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 30, 2020:

Mary, it's good that you recognize the benefits. I do too, and realize how necessary it is to my physical, mental and spiritual health.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 30, 2020:

Venkatachari, you're welcome. The rest enhances our physical lives, and gives us opportunity for reflection on our mental and spiritual state.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on November 30, 2020:

It seems that everyday is a Sabbath now that we are on lockdown but I like the peace and quiet, the time to explore inwardly and rest from all the stimulation of the commercial world.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on November 30, 2020:

A beautiful article, Dora. I am thankful to you for explaining it so very well, the meaning and purpose of observing the Sabbath.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 30, 2020:

Thanks, Linda. This is really a good time to underscore how overworked the healthcare workers are. At least, let's pray for their physical, mental and spiritual strength.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on November 29, 2020:

It's always good to take time to pause and think about what is important to us. Physical rest is important, too. Thank you for the reminder, Dora. I do worry about healthcare workers during this difficult time, though, as Flourish has said.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Thanks, Peggy. I agree that the health workers need our prayers. They are taxed physically and mentally. Nobody needs the Sabbath rest more than they do.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on November 29, 2020:

As FlourishAnyway already commented, I fear for the health and safety of our health workers. Many of them are working overtime and with little time off because of the pandemic. They all need to rest and rejuvenate, but few can right now unless they have been exposed and are guaranteeing. Let's all pray for them! You have collected a good many quotes for your article that are inspirational. Enjoy your Sabbath day!

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Howdy, Bill. Good hearing from you. Thanks for sharing your positive, cheery outlook.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Manatiat, everyone including you need to rest regularly. Thanks for at least seeing my reasoning.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on November 29, 2020:

Lovely messages of hope and love for this Sunday morning. My mind, and heart, are now in a good place as I begin my day. Thank you, and blessings to you always!

manatita44 from london on November 29, 2020:

Dee, A great Article! The quotes all read like a shout for the Sabbath. Useful for many! We Seekers of the Light don't really know what that means, but I see your reasoning. Pray for me to rest. Haha. Much Love.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Thanks, Devika. The more changes we encounter, the more stability we need, and the Sabbath rest contributes to that stability. Have a great week!

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on November 29, 2020:

Hi Dora excellent hub! The changes we have in our lives is something that we can't run or hide from and it has become part of our lives. I like the idea of your hub title.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Liz, that's a good point you mention about church on the laptop. Now, if that's the only way we can enjoy public worship, we must keep our heart in the right place despite the changes in our lives. We need the Sabbath rest now more than ever.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Thank you, Flourish. I join you in concern for the healthcare workers. They need time to focus and recharge, even to help them maintain their mood of kindness and compassion.What a relief the Sabbath rest would be for them.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Sankhajit, you are very kind. Thanks for your support and encouragement.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Thanks, Glenn. Your comment means much to me. Mental and spiritual rest are my greater need the physical. Yes, the reminders are crucial.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Pam, the Book o Luke in the month of December is a great idea. Thanks for reading these quotes also.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Nithya, even in this pandemic stay-at-home era, we get so busy during the week, we can all benefit from the Sabbath rest.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on November 29, 2020:

Thank you, Mek. I appreciate your encouragement, and I'll keep trying.

Liz Westwood from UK on November 28, 2020:

I look forward to Sundays. It's the day in the week when I can forget about work. I used to try to avoid the laptop, but church going online has changed that. These are helpful and inspirational quotes.

FlourishAnyway from USA on November 28, 2020:

This made me think of all of the exhausted healthcare workers who are working, many of them with insufficient rest and in tragic and dangerous environments with the virus. I really hope they get the rest that they need for their own sake, for the sake of their families and for their patients. Whether that’s on the Sabbath or at some other time, I have them in my heart. I liked several of these quotes. None of us can keep up a constant work schedule too long. We must all take time to rest and recharge.

Sankhajit Bhattacharjee from MILWAUKEE on November 28, 2020:

ever beautiful and elegant...

Glenn Stok from Long Island, NY on November 28, 2020:

Great work, Ms Dora. I like how you categorized these quotes under topics such as Physical Rest, Mental Freedom, Spiritual Blessings, and so on. It helps focus on our most needed meditation. It’s crucial to have reminders to help us with mental clarity and spiritual renewal.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on November 28, 2020:

I like these quotes, especially the one from Maya Angelou and the one from Exodus 31:13. I love the Sabbath as it is a day of rest and a day for church. I like Luke 23:56 also. I like to read Luke in the month of December as there are 24 chapters that you finish right before Christmas. I like your article, Ms Dora, as it reflects the Bible and the time for prayer and worship too.

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on November 28, 2020:

Great quotes reminding us that we need to rest and rejuvenate mind, body and soul. Thank you for sharing.

Mek Hepela Kamongmenan from Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea on November 28, 2020:

May God bless your effort

Sabbath Wishes

Tomorrow in seminary we are discussing D&C 59, which focuses on the Sabbath day. Click here for a handout you can glue into your scriptures. 

I love Eli Herring's powerful example of showing his love of the Lord by honoring the Sabbath, even when it meant giving up a great NFL career. 

Here are some inspiring quotes to help us see and keep the Sabbath as holy as it should be. 

David L. Herring: “Our great grandfathers called it the holy Sabbath day. Our grandfathers called it the Sabbath. Our fathers called it Sunday. And now, we just call it the weekend. We feel like our great grandfathers did about the holy Sabbath day” (John Bytheway, quoting Eli Herring’s father in “Family Night with John Bytheway: Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy”). 

Elder Joe J. Christensen: “Make Sundays special, and they will help make you special in the sight of the Lord” (Ensign, Dec. 1994). 

Elder Mark E. Petersen: “Our observance or nonobservance of the Sabbath is an unerring measure of our attitude toward the Lord personally and toward his suffering in Gethsemane, his death on the cross, and his resurrection from the dead” (“The Sabbath Day,” Ensign, May 1975, 49).

Elder Bruce R. McConkie: “The matter of Sabbath observance remains … as one of the great tests which divides the righteous from the worldly and wicked,” (Mormon Doctrine, 2nd ed. (1966), 658).

President Joseph F Smith: “Persons who habitually desecrate the Lord's day cannot be held in fellowship, and members of the Church who neglect public worship and the partaking of the Sacrament and do not remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy, will become weak in the faith and spiritually sickly, and will lose the Spirit and favor of God, and ultimately forfeit their standing in the Church and their exaltation...” (In Messages of the First Presidency, 3:123).

Gordon B. Hinckley: “The Sabbath of the Lord is becoming the play day of the people. It is a day of golf and football on television, of buying and selling in our stores and markets. Are we moving to mainstream America as some observers believe? In this I fear we are. What a telling thing it is to see the parking lots of the markets filled on Sunday in communities that are predominately LDS. Our strength for the future, our resolution to grow the Church across the world, will be weakened if we violate the will of the Lord in this important matter. He has so very clearly spoken anciently and again in modern revelation. We cannot disregard with impunity that which He has said” (Ensign, Nov. 1997).

James E. Faust: “Over a lifetime of observation, it is clear to me that the farmer who observes the Sabbath day seems to get more done on his farm than he would if he worked seven days.  The mechanic will be able to turn out more and better products in six days than in seven.  The doctor, the lawyer, the dentist, the scientist will accomplish more by trying to rest on the Sabbath than if he tries to utilize every day of the week for his professional work.  I would counsel all students, if they can, to arrange their schedules so that they do not study on the Sabbath.  If students and other seekers after truth will do this, their minds will be quickened and the infinite Spirit will lead them to the verities they wish to learn.  This is because God has hallowed his day and blessed it as a perpetual covenant of faithfulness” (Ensign, Nov. 1991).

Spencer W. Kimball: "The Sabbath is a holy day in which to do worthy and holy things. Abstinence from work and recreation is important but insufficient. The Sabbath calls for constructive thoughts and acts, and if one merely lounges about doing nothing on the Sabbath, he is breaking it. To observe it, one will be on his knees in prayer, preparing lessons, studying the gospel, meditating, visiting the ill and distressed, sleeping, reading wholesome material, and attending all the meetings of that day to which he is expected. To fail to do these proper things is a transgression on the omission side." (The Miracle of Forgiveness, 96-97.)

President Spencer W. Kimball: "As we plan our Sunday activities, we may want to set aside time for our family to be together, for personal study and meditation, and for service to others. We might want to read the scriptures, conference reports, and Church publications; study the lives and teachings of the prophets; prepare church lessons and other church assignments; write in journals; pray and meditate; write to or visit relatives and friends; write to missionaries; enjoy uplifting music; have family gospel instruction; hold family council meetings; … read with a child; do genealogical research; … friendship nonmembers; fellowship neighbors; visit the sick, the aged, and the lonely" ("First Presidency Message: Therefore I Was Taught," Ensign, Jan. 1982). 

Russell M. Nelson – To measure where you are with the Lord, ask: 
1) What do I think of when I partake of the sacrament? 
2) How do you feel about the Sabbath day? 
 (“Reflection and Resolution,” BYU Fireside, Jan. 7, 1990)

Elder Russell M. Nelson: “My behavior on the Sabbath constitutes my sign to the Lord of my regard for him and for my covenants with him. If, on the one hand, my interests on the Sabbath day are turned to activities such as pro football games or worldly movies, the sign from me to him would clearly be that my devotions do not favor him. If, on the other hand, my Sabbath interests are focused on the Lord and his teachings, on the family, or on folks who are sick or poor or needy, that sign would likewise be evident to God. I have concluded that our activities on the Sabbath will be appropriate when we honestly consider them to be our personal sign of our commitment to the Lord. (“Reflection and Resolution,” BYU Fireside, Jan. 7, 1990)

President George Albert Smith: "Much of the sorrow and distress that is afflicting and will continue to afflict mankind is traceable to the fact that they have ignored God’s admonition to keep the Sabbath day holy. "

President Joseph F. Smith: "I would advise my brethren, and I take the advice to myself, to look after their sons as well as their daughters, and see where they are on the Sabbath; see that they do not go a fishing, riding or hunting, or waste their time in idleness, contracting pernicious and injurious habits—habits that will lead them to destruction, so that when we are called upon to answer for the time and talents God has given us we may not be found wanting; and when it is asked, “Did you train your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord?” “Did you set an example worthy of imitation, that their blood may not be on your skirts?” and you can answer, “Yes Lord, I did all in my power to teach my children and to rear them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. I did all in my power to make men and women of them who would honor the name of God.” If this course be taken by parents very few children will be uncontrollable; or come to the terrible end that awaits them if parents neglect them and show by their course that they had as lief they would go to the devil as not. " (Joseph F. Smith, “No Time to Do Wrong, Etc.”, Journal of Discourses, vol. 14, pp. 282-288, September 3, 1871).

Quotes inspirational sabbath

“Sabbath, in the first instance, is not about worship. It is about work stoppage. It is about withdrawal from the anxiety system of Pharaoh, the refusal to let one’s life be defined by production and consumption and the endless pursuit of private well-being.”
― Walter Brueggemann

“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”
― Mark Buchanan, The Holy Wild: Trusting in the Character of God

“I rarely feel such clear signs of fatigue and anxiety on days that are filled with travel, meetings and assignments—only when I stop to rest. Without sabbath, I would be dangerously ignorant of the true condition of my soul.”
― Andy Crouch, Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power

“A great benefit of Sabbath keeping is that we learn to let God take care of us — not by becoming passive and lazy, but in the freedom of giving up our feeble attempts to be God in our own lives.”
― Marva J. Dawn, Keeping the Sabbath Wholly: Ceasing, Resting, Embracing, Feasting

“Caring for the poor, resting on the Sabbath, showing hospitality and keeping the home—these are important things that can lead us to God, but God is not contained in them.”
― Rachel Held Evans, A Year of Biblical Womanhood

“Like a path through the forest, Sabbath creates a marker for ourselves so, if we are lost, we can find our way back to our center.”
— Wayne Muller, Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives

“The new covenant radically alters the Sabbath perspective. The current believer does not first labor six days, looking hopefully towards rest. Instead, he begins the week by rejoicing in the rest already accomplished by the cosmic event of Christ’s resurrection. Then he enters joyfully into his six days of labor, confident of success through the victory which Christ has already won.”
― O. Palmer Robertson, The Christ of the Covenants

“Love always precedes repentance. Divine love is a catalyst for our turning, our healing. Where fear & threat may gain our compliance, love captures our heart. It changes the heavy burden of the “have-to’s” of imposed obedience to the “get-to’s”, a joyful response to the genuine love of God. It is in the security of this love we find Sabbath (rest).”
― Michael M. Rose

“Rest shows us who God is. He has restraint. Restraint is refraining from doing everything that one has the power to do. We must never mistake God’s restraint for weakness. The opposite is true. God shows restraint; therefore, restraint is holy.”
― Matthew Sleeth, 24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life

“God presents the Sabbath rest as a shelter we can enter. (Hebrews 4:1-11)”
― Charles R. Swindoll

Chocolate is the answer. Who cares what the question is

Text Quotes

You will find rest on Sabbath day for your soul  (Sabbath Day Quotes)You know, it’s ironic to me that Christians want to keep the Ten Commandments in our schools, because Christianity has abrogated four of the Ten Commandments. For example, the Sabbath day according to the Ten Commandments is Saturday, not Sunday. And the reason is because God rested, not because Jesus was resurrected  (Sabbath Day Quotes)If you don’t take a Sabbath, something is wrong. You’re doing too much, you’re being too much in charge. You’ve got to quit, one day a week, and just watch what God is doing when you’re not doing anything  (Sabbath Day Quotes)Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv’ryTay! Alas! I am very sorry to say That ninety lives have been taken away On the last Sabbath day of1879, Which will be remember’d for a very long time  (Sabbath Day Quotes)On the Sabbath day, we are remembering that my relationship with God did not begin with what I’ve done, it is not sustained by what I do, and it is not guaranteed to the end by my effort or work. I’m saved from beginning to end by Jesus’ work  (Sabbath Day Quotes)Every day is a Sabbath to me. All pure water is holy water, and this earth is a celestial abode  (Sabbath Day Quotes)Sabbath on Saturday in favor of The Lord’s Day (Sunday). (Mag 9.1), rejected Judaizing (Mag 10.3), first use of term Christianity (Mag 10)  (Sabbath Day Quotes)I do not love the Sabbath, The soapsuds and the starch, The troops of solemn people Who to Salvation march. I take my book, I take my stick On the Sabbath day, In woody nooks and valleys I hide myself away. To ponder there in quiet God’s Universal Plan, Resolved that church and Sabbath Were never made for man  (Sabbath Day Quotes)I try to take a weekly digital Sabbath, batch my emails so I deal with them a few times a day rather than constantly, and increasingly give myself permission to ignore unsolicited communiques. I try, too, to give others more slack. The respond-now culture is a two-way street. I’m trying to be more mindful of that  (Sabbath Day Quotes)The gift of the Sabbath must be treasured. Blessed are you who honour this day.  (Sabbath Day Quotes)The work on weekdays and the rest on the seventh day are correlated. The Sabbath is the inspirer, the other days the inspired.  (Sabbath Day Quotes)Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day... Thou shalt not do any work  (Sabbath Day Quotes)

Sabbath Rest Quotes

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

“Those who floated in the ark were weightless and had weightless thoughts. They were neither hungry nor satisfied. They had no happiness and no fear of losing it. Their heads were not filled with petty official calculations, intrigues, promotions, and their shoulders were not burdened with concerns about housing, fuel, bread, and clothes for the children. Love, which from time immemorial has been the delight and the torment of humanity, was powerless to communicate to them its thrill or its agony. Their prison terms were so long that no one even thought of the time when he would go out into freedom. Men with exceptional Intellect, education, and experience, but too devoted to their families to have much of themselves left over for their friends, here belonged only to friends.”
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The First Circle
