And on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath day unto the Lord your God, you shall do no work For in six days God made the heavens and the earth, the oceans and all therein, and He rested on the seventh day. Therefore God hath blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it.

The Talmud Avoda Zara folio 9a cites a teaching of the Academy of Elijah that “the world will exist for six thousand years”. Shabbat, so too in the seventh millennium, will there be tranquility in the world.
