And I'm sure no one wants an essay nor am I qualified.
"From finding your desires and speaking of matters" Yeshaya 58:13; and Chazal elucidated, "Your desires are forbidden, the desires of the heaven are permitted" (Shabbat 113b).
From here, it says the prohibition of all business is derived, including things that could lead to business.
It doesn't say here, but I would make a guess that this is where "to guard" the Shabbat comes in. (which, now I'm seeing on another page).
I was going to look for two lines I saw earlier about a "day of rest", but I think this will be better.
"Remember the Shabbat and keep it holy" Shmot 20:8
Holy being Kodosh or separate. Lot of the rules deal with separating the mundane-ness of the weekday and not letting it into Saturdays at all.
That's from a book where I evidently do 400 pages of things wrong. But I do hope to find out where the link is between the 39 and the separation and rest on Sunday.
