What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
18 Then aBildad the Shuhite answered and said:
Gain understanding, and afterward we will speak.
3 Why are we counted bas beasts,
And regarded as stupid in your sight?
Shall the earth be forsaken for you?
Or shall the rock be removed from its place?
5 “The dlight of the wicked indeed goes out,
And the flame of his fire does not shine.
eAnd his lamp beside him is put out.
And fhis own counsel casts him down.
8 For ghe is cast into a net by his own feet,
And he walks into a snare.
And ha snare lays hold of him.
And a trap for him in the road.
11 iTerrors frighten him on every side,
And drive him to his feet.
And jdestruction is ready at his side.
The firstborn of death devours his 2limbs.
14 He is uprooted from kthe shelter of his tent,
And they parade him before the king of terrors.
Brimstone is scattered on his dwelling.
16 lHis roots are dried out below,
And his branch withers above.
17 mThe memory of him perishes from the earth,
And he has no name 3among the renowned.
18 4He is driven from light into darkness,
And chased out of the world.
19 nHe has neither son nor posterity among his people,
Nor any remaining in his dwellings.
As those 6in the east are frightened.
And this is the place of him who pdoes not know God.”
19 Then Job answered and said:
And break me in pieces with words?
3 These ten times you have 1reproached me;
You are not ashamed that you 2have wronged me.
My error remains with me.
5 If indeed you aexalt yourselves against me,
And plead my disgrace against me,
6 Know then that bGod has wronged me,
And has surrounded me with His net.
7 “If I cry out concerning 3wrong, I am not heard.
If I cry aloud, there is no justice.
And He has set darkness in my paths.
9 dHe has stripped me of my glory,
And taken the crown from my head.
And I am gone;
My ehope He has uprooted like a tree.
And fHe counts me as one of His enemies.
And build up their road against me;
They encamp all around my tent.
13 “He ghas removed my brothers far from me,
And my acquaintances are completely estranged from me.
And my close friends have forgotten me.
Count me as a stranger;
I am an alien in their sight.
I beg him with my mouth.
And I am 5repulsive to the children of my own body.
18 Even hyoung children despise me;
I arise, and they speak against me.
19 iAll my close friends abhor me,
And those whom I love have turned against me.
20 jMy bone clings to my skin and to my flesh,
And I have escaped by the skin of my teeth.
For the hand of God has struck me!
22 Why do you kpersecute me as God does,
And are not satisfied with my flesh?
Oh, that they were inscribed in a book!
With an iron pen and lead, forever!
And He shall stand at last on the earth;
26 And after my skin is 6destroyed, this I know,
That lin my flesh I shall see God,
And my eyes shall behold, and not another.
How my 7heart yearns within me!
Since the root of the matter is found in me,
For wrath brings the punishment of the sword,
That you may know there is a judgment.”
20 Then aZophar the Naamathite answered and said:
Because of the turmoil within me.
3 I have heard the rebuke 1that reproaches me,
And the spirit of my understanding causes me to answer.
4 “Do you not know this of bold,
Since man was placed on earth,
5 cThat the triumphing of the wicked is short,
And the joy of the hypocrite is but for a dmoment?
6 eThough his haughtiness mounts up to the heavens,
And his head reaches to the clouds,
Those who have seen him will say, ‘Where is he?’
8 He will fly away flike a dream, and not be found;
Yes, he gwill be chased away like a vision of the night.
Nor will his place behold him anymore.
And his hands will restore his wealth.
11 His bones are full of hhis youthful vigor,
iBut it will lie down with him in the dust.
And he hides it under his tongue,
But still keeps it in his 2mouth,
It becomes cobra venom within him.
And vomits them up again;
God casts them out of his belly.
The viper’s tongue will slay him.
17 He will not see jthe streams,
The rivers flowing with honey and cream.
And will not swallow it down;
From the proceeds of business
He will get no enjoyment.
19 For he has 3oppressed and forsaken the poor,
He has violently seized a house which he did not build.
He will not save anything he desires.
Therefore his well-being will not last.
Every hand of 5misery will come against him.
God will cast on him the fury of His wrath,
And will rain it on him while he is eating.
24 lHe will flee from the iron weapon;
A bronze bow will pierce him through.
nTerrors come upon him;
oAn unfanned fire will consume him;
It shall go ill with him who is left in his tent.
And the earth will rise up against him.
And his goods will flow away in the day of His pwrath.
29 qThis is the portion from God for a wicked man,
The heritage appointed to him by God.”
21 Then Job answered and said:
And let this be your 1consolation.
And after I have spoken, keep amocking.
And if it were, why should I not be impatient?
bPut your hand over your mouth.
And trembling takes hold of my flesh.
7 cWhy do the wicked live and become old,
Yes, become mighty in power?
And their offspring before their eyes.
Their cow calves ewithout miscarriage.
And their children dance.
And rejoice to the sound of the flute.
13 They fspend their days in wealth,
14 gYet they say to God, ‘Depart from us,
For we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.
15 hWho is the Almighty, that we should serve Him?
And iwhat profit do we have if we pray to Him?’
16 Indeed 5their prosperity is not in their hand;
jThe counsel of the wicked is far from me.
How often does their destruction come upon them,
The sorrows God kdistributes in His anger?
18 lThey are like straw before the wind,
And like chaff that a storm 6carries away.
Let Him recompense him, that he may know it.
And nlet him drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
When the number of his months is cut in half?
22 “Can oanyone teach God knowledge,
Since He judges those on high?
Being wholly at ease and secure;
24 His 9pails are full of milk,
And the marrow of his bones is moist.
Never having eaten with pleasure.
26 They plie down alike in the dust,
And worms cover them.
And the schemes with which you would wrong me.
‘Where is the house of the prince?
And where is 1the tent,
The dwelling place of the wicked?’
And do you not know their signs?
30 qFor the wicked are reserved for the day of doom;
They shall be brought out on the day of wrath.
And who repays him for what he has done?
And a vigil kept over the tomb.
rEveryone shall follow him,
As countless have gone before him.
Since 2falsehood remains in your answers?”
22 Then aEliphaz the Temanite answered and said:
2 “Can ba man be profitable to God,
Though he who is wise may be profitable to himself?
Or is it gain to Him that you make your ways blameless?
And enters into judgment with you?
And your iniquity without end?
6 For you have ctaken pledges from your brother for no reason,
And stripped the naked of their clothing.
And you dhave withheld bread from the hungry.
