|Hebrew Text: Rambam-Beis Habechirah|
(5742) Siyum Rambam (Hil. Beis Habechirah 8:12): "This pattern was followed each night except on Sabbath eve. etc" (Even though there is no "resting" (Shvus) in the Temple.
A Shvus is an action prohibited by the Chachamim on Shabbos or Yom Tov. The Torah states "... uva'Yom ha'Shevi'i Tishbos" -- "... and you shall rest on the seventh day" (Shemos 23:12). The Rabanan understood this to apply even to actions that are not Melachos, and as a result they prohibited actions that would otherwise be permitted (see Shabbos 114b). The term "Shvus" is derived from the word "Tishbos" in the Pasuk.
"This pattern was followed each night except on Sabbath eve. [Then,] they did not hold torches in their hands.60 Rather, they checked by the light of the candles, which remained burning from the Sabbath eve.
