 12:16
12:16 The first day shall be a sacred holiday, and the seventh day shall [also] be a sacred holiday. No work may be done on these [days]. The only [work] that you may do is that which is needed so that everyone will be able to eat.
Uvayom harishon mikra-kodesh uvayom hashvi'i mikra-kodesh yihyeh lachem kol-melachah lo-ye'aseh vahem ach asher ye'achel lechol-nefesh hu levado ye'aseh lachem.



Commentary:

The only work...
  Work on festivals is forbidden, just as on the Sabbath, but it is permitted to make a fire, to cook and to carry, since these acts are needed to prepare food.
