The statutes and Sabbath (Ezek 20:11-20:12)

“I gave them

My statutes.

I showed them

My ordinances.

By their observance,

Everyone shall live.

Moreover

I gave them

My Sabbath,

As a sign

Between me

And them.

Thus they might know

That I,

Yahweh,

Sanctify them.”

Yahweh, in the first person singular, gave them his statutes and ordinances. He wanted them to observe them. If they did, everyone would live. He also gave them the Sabbath as a sign between him and them. Thus they would know that he, Yahweh, was going to sanctify them.
