God needs rest on 7th day

God Needs Rest on 7th Day.
Why God isn't really almighty. 

Believers scoff at the notion that God needs rest.
But the Bible says God rested.
It says--

Genesis 2:1 On the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done. 
Apologists suggest God “ceased work.”
Still most Bibles say "rested."
Exodus, as well, says God rested on the seventh day--
Exodus 31:16 The Israelites shall keep the Sabbath [seventh day]. ... 17 It is a sign for ever between me and the people of Israel that in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. 
It gives two Hebrew words, "rested" and "refreshed."
Apologists might say it's not literal.
But, elsewhere the Bible says God grew weary, angry, regretted what he had done, or didn't know the future.
Saying it isn't literal is like asserting it can't mean God is sorry or unable to know people's thoughts. 

Thus apologists wish away the plain meaning.

The thing is, the Bible simply says God, like people, needs to relax, rest and refresh.
(Yet God is almighty. Uh ...)
