their thanksgiving is rest for them

and they give thanks and praise and do not rest, for their thanksgiving is rest for them
– 1 Enoch 41:7

Enoch (who was considered canonical at the time of Jesus, and is still part of the canon of the Ehiopian church) here speaks of the steadfastness of the sun and moon, who “add nothing to their course and take nothing from it, and preserve their fidelity one with the other, remaining steadfast in their oath”
