Abstract The analysis of pentateuch texts on sabbath and the week, work and cessation of work (Gen 1,1-2,3; Exo 16; 20,8-11; 23,12; 31,12-17; Deut 5,12-15) shows how the conception of God and his acts prefigures and structures the organization of time in Israel. The anthropomorphism of God taking a breath and pausing on the day after creation (Exo 20,11; 31,17) evokes a multifaceted echo on the side of God's people (Exo 23,12; Deut 5,14). The anthropomorphism can thus be understood as witness to the Israel-relatedness of God. A theology of creation demonstrates the preconditions of this relationship and a theology of history shows the concrete realizations of its possibilities.
