Which day is the real Sabbath?

The Rav Name:

Why in judaism do they have service on saturday, the sabbath when Exodus 16:29-30 says Mark that the LORD has given you the sabbath; therefore HE gives you two days of food on the sixth day. Let everyone remain where he is: let NO ONE leave his place on the seventh day. So the people remained INACTIVE on the seventh day. If I understand these verses correctly it is a violation of the sabbath to leave your home on the sabbath. Exodus 31:12-14 also says , And the LORD said to moses; speak to the israelite people and say; Nevertheless you must keep MY sabbath, for this is a sign between ME and you throughout the ages,that you may know that I the LORD have consecrated you. You shall keep the sabbath, for it si holy for you. He who profanes it shall be put to death; whoever does work on it shall be cut off from among his kin. These words come from the TANAKH, the jewish study bible from the jewish publication society containing the TORAH,NEVI’IM and KETHUVIM. I am eager to hear from you. Thank you for your time
