Yahweh threatens to “visit on the world evil and on the wicked their iniquity” (Isaiah 13:11).  When Yahweh comes for a visit, things get sorted…

The verb is the hiphil of shabat: The day of Yahweh is a “Sabbath” visitation, a day of ceasing.

This is Yahweh’s form of Sabbath-keeping: Putting down the proud.  No wonder Jesus didn’t think the Pharisees were genuinely keeping Sabbath.
