I just realised the word for "seven", "zeven", "sieben", "sept", "sette", "șapte", "sab'ah" and "sheva'" is like the word for Sabbath "rest"...what a coincidence...

A quick search suggests most of those words don't share an etymology with "sabbath". To be fair, they're not so similar.

Yeah, I know they don't share the same etymology...and they aren't that similar...just pointing that out... :)
