What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
32 “Give aear, O heavens, and I will speak;
And hear, O bearth, the words of my mouth.
My speech distill as the dew,
dAs raindrops on the tender herb,
And as showers on the grass.
3 For I proclaim the ename of the Lord:
fAscribe greatness to our God.
For all His ways are justice,
Righteous and upright is He.
5 “They khave corrupted themselves;
They are not His children,
Because of their blemish:
A lperverse and crooked generation.
O foolish and unwise people?
Has He not pmade you and established you?
7 “Remember qthe days of old,
Consider the years of many generations.
rAsk your father, and he will show you;
Your elders, and they will tell you:
8 When the Most High sdivided their inheritance to the nations,
When He tseparated the sons of Adam,
He set the boundaries of the peoples
According to the number of the 3children of Israel.
9 For uthe Lord’s portion is His people;
Jacob is the place of His inheritance.
10 “He found him vin a desert land
And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness;
He encircled him, He instructed him,
11 xAs an eagle stirs up its nest,
Hovers over its young,
Spreading out its wings, taking them up,
Carrying them on its wings,
And there was no foreign god with him.
13 “He ymade him ride in the heights of the earth,
That he might eat the produce of the fields;
He made him draw honey from the rock,
And oil from the flinty rock;
zWith fat of lambs;
And rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats,
With the choicest wheat;
And you drank wine, the ablood of the grapes.
bYou grew fat, you grew thick,
You are obese!
And scornfully esteemed the eRock of his salvation.
16 fThey provoked Him to jealousy with foreign gods;
With 5abominations they provoked Him to anger.
17 gThey sacrificed to demons, not to God,
To gods they did not know,
To new gods, new arrivals
That your fathers did not fear.
18 hOf the Rock who begot you, you are unmindful,
And have iforgotten the God who fathered you.
19 “And jwhen the Lord saw it, He spurned them,
Because of the provocation of His sons and His daughters.
I will see what their end will be,
For they are a perverse generation,
kChildren in whom is no faith.
21 lThey have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God;
But nI will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation;
I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.
22 For oa fire is kindled in My anger,
It shall consume the earth with her increase,
And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
23 ‘I will pheap disasters on them;
qI will spend My arrows on them.
Devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction;
I will also send against them the rteeth of beasts,
With the poison of serpents of the dust.
There shall be terror within
For the young man and virgin,
The nursing child with the man of gray hairs.
26 sI would have said, “I will dash them in pieces,
I will make the memory of them to cease from among men,”
Lest their adversaries should misunderstand,
Lest they should say, t“Our hand is high;
And it is not the Lord who has done all this.” ’
Nor is there any understanding in them.
29 uOh, that they were wise, that they understood this,
That they would consider their vlatter end!
And two put ten thousand to flight,
Unless their Rock whad sold them,
And the Lord had surrendered them?
xEven our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For ytheir vine is of the vine of Sodom
And of the fields of Gomorrah;
Their grapes are grapes of gall,
Their clusters are bitter.
33 Their wine is zthe poison of serpents,
And the cruel avenom of cobras.
34 ‘Is this not blaid up in store with Me,
Sealed up among My treasures?
35 cVengeance is Mine, and recompense;
Their foot shall slip in due time;
dFor the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things to come hasten upon them.’
36 “For ethe Lord will judge His people
fAnd have compassion on His servants,
When He sees that their power is gone,
And gthere is no one remaining, bond or free.
37 He will say: h‘Where are their gods,
The rock in which they sought refuge?
And drank the wine of their drink offering?
Let them rise and help you,
And be your refuge.
39 ‘Now see that iI, even I, am He,
And jthere is no God besides Me;
kI kill and I make alive;
I wound and I heal;
Nor is there any who can deliver from My hand.
And say, “As I live forever,
And My hand takes hold on judgment,
I will render vengeance to My enemies,
And repay those who hate Me.
And My sword shall devour flesh,
With the blood of the slain and the captives,
From the heads of the leaders of the enemy.” ’
For He will navenge the blood of His servants,
And render vengeance to His adversaries;
He owill provide atonement for His land and His people.”
44 So Moses came with 2Joshua the son of Nun and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people. 45 Moses finished speaking all these words to all Israel, 46 and he said to them: p“Set your hearts on all the words which I testify among you today, which you shall command your qchildren to be careful to observe—all the words of this law. 47 For it is not a 3futile thing for you, because it is your rlife, and by this word you shall prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess.”
48 Then the Lord spoke to Moses that very same day, saying: 49 s“Go up this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, across from Jericho; view the land of Canaan, which I give to the children of Israel as a possession; 50 and die on the mountain which you ascend, and be 4gathered to your people, just as tAaron your brother died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his people; 51 because uyou trespassed against Me among the children of Israel at the waters of 5Meribah Kadesh, in the Wilderness of Zin, because you vdid not hallow Me in the midst of the children of Israel. 52 wYet you shall see the land before you, though you shall not go there, into the land which I am giving to the children of Israel.”
c“The Lord came from Sinai,
And dawned on them from dSeir;
He shone forth from eMount Paran,
And He came with ften thousands of saints;
From His right hand
Came a fiery law for them.
3 Yes, gHe loves the people;
hAll His saints are in Your hand;
They isit down at Your feet;
Everyone jreceives Your words.
lA heritage of the congregation of Jacob.
When the leaders of the people were gathered,
All the tribes of Israel together.
6 “Let oReuben live, and not die,
Nor let his men be few.”
7 And this he said of pJudah:
“Hear, Lord, the voice of Judah,
And bring him to his people;
qLet his hands be sufficient for him,
And may You be ra help against his enemies.”
8 And of sLevi he said:
uWhom You tested at Massah,
And with whom You contended at the waters of Meribah,
9 vWho says of his father and mother,
‘I have not wseen them’;
xNor did he acknowledge his brothers,
Or know his own children;
For ythey have observed Your word
And kept Your covenant.
10 zThey shall teach Jacob Your judgments,
And Israel Your law.
They shall put incense before You,
aAnd a whole burnt sacrifice on Your altar.
And baccept the work of his hands;
Strike the loins of those who rise against him,
And of those who hate him, that they rise not again.”
“The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him,
Who shelters him all the day long;
And he shall dwell between His shoulders.”
c“Blessed of the Lord is his land,
With the precious things of heaven, with the ddew,
And the deep lying beneath,
With the precious produce of the months,
15 With the best things of ethe ancient mountains,
With the precious things fof the everlasting hills,
And the favor of gHim who dwelt in the bush.
Let the blessing come h‘on the head of Joseph,
And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.’
17 His glory is like a ifirstborn bull,
And his horns like the jhorns of the wild ox;
Together with them
kHe shall push the peoples
To the ends of the earth;
lThey are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
And they are the thousands of Manasseh.”
m“Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out,
And Issachar in your tents!
19 They shall ncall the peoples to the mountain;
There othey shall offer sacrifices of righteousness;
For they shall partake of the abundance of the seas
And of treasures hidden in the sand.”
“Blessed is he who penlarges Gad;
He dwells as a lion,
And tears the arm and the crown of his head.
21 qHe provided the first part for himself,
Because a lawgiver’s portion was reserved there.
rHe came with the heads of the people;
He administered the justice of the Lord,
And His judgments with Israel.”
“Dan is a lion’s whelp;
sHe shall leap from Bashan.”
