Days set apart as Sabbaths

.

Sunday by Christians; Monday by the Greeks; Tuesday by the Persians; Wednesday by the Assyrians; Thursday by the Egyptians; Friday by the Turks; Saturday by the Jews.        

Christians worship God on Sunday,

Grecian zealots hallow Monday,

Tuesday Persians spend in prayer,

Assyrians Wednesday revere,

Egyptians Thursday, Friday Turks,

On Saturday no Hebrew works.
