What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
25 Then aBildad the Shuhite answered and said:
He makes peace in His high places.
3 1Is there any number to His armies?
Upon whom does bHis light not rise?
4 cHow then can man be righteous before God?
Or how can he be dpure who is born of a woman?
And the stars are not pure in His esight,
6 How much less man, who is fa maggot,
And a son of man, who is a worm?”
26 But Job answered and said:
How have you saved the arm that has no strength?
And how have you declared sound advice to many?
And whose spirit came from you?
Those under the waters and those inhabiting them.
6 aSheol is naked before Him,
And Destruction has no covering.
7 bHe stretches out the north over empty space;
He hangs the earth on nothing.
8 cHe binds up the water in His thick clouds,
Yet the clouds 1are not broken under it.
And spreads His cloud over it.
10 dHe drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters,
At the boundary of light and darkness.
And are 2astonished at His rebuke.
12 eHe stirs up the sea with His power,
And by His understanding He breaks up 3the storm.
13 fBy His Spirit He adorned the heavens;
His hand pierced gthe fleeing serpent.
And how small a whisper we hear of Him!
But the thunder of His power who can understand?”
27 Moreover Job continued his discourse, and said:
2 “As God lives, awho has taken away my justice,
And the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter,
And the breath of God in my nostrils,
Nor my tongue utter deceit.
That I should say you are right;
Till I die bI will not put away my integrity from me.
6 My righteousness I chold fast, and will not let it go;
And he who rises up against me like the unrighteous.
8 eFor what is the hope of the hypocrite,
Though he may gain much,
If God takes away his life?
9 fWill God hear his cry
When trouble comes upon him?
10 gWill he delight himself in the Almighty?
Will he always call on God?
11 “I will teach you 2about the hand of God;
What is with the Almighty I will not conceal.
Why then do you behave with complete nonsense?
13 “This his the portion of a wicked man with God,
And the heritage of oppressors, received from the Almighty:
14 iIf his children are multiplied, it is for the sword;
And his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
And piles up clothing like clay—
17 He may pile it up, but kthe just will wear it,
And the innocent will divide the silver.
18 He builds his house like a 4moth,
6But not be gathered up;
He opens his eyes,
And he is mno more.
20 nTerrors overtake him like a flood;
A tempest steals him away in the night.
It sweeps him out of his place.
22 It hurls against him and does not ospare;
He flees desperately from its 7power.
And shall hiss him out of his place.
28 “Surely there is a mine for silver,
And a place where gold is refined.
2 Iron is taken from the 1earth,
And copper is smelted from ore.
And searches every recess
For ore in the darkness and the shadow of death.
In places forgotten by feet
They hang far away from men;
They swing to and fro.
But underneath it is turned up as by fire;
And it contains gold dust.
Nor has the falcon’s eye seen it.
8 The 2proud lions have not trodden it,
Nor has the fierce lion passed over it.
He overturns the mountains 3at the roots.
And his eye sees every precious thing.
What is hidden he brings forth to light.
12 “But awhere can wisdom be found?
And where is the place of understanding?
13 Man does not know its bvalue,
Nor is it found in the land of the living.
14 cThe deep says, ‘It is not in me’;
And the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’
15 It dcannot be purchased for gold,
Nor can silver be weighed for its price.
In precious onyx or sapphire.
17 Neither egold nor crystal can equal it,
Nor can it be exchanged for 4jewelry of fine gold.
18 No mention shall be made of 5coral or quartz,
For the price of wisdom is above frubies.
Nor can it be valued in pure ggold.
20 “From hwhere then does wisdom come?
And where is the place of understanding?
And concealed from the birds of the 6air.
‘We have heard a report about it with our ears.’
And He knows its place.
And jsees under the whole heavens,
25 kTo establish a weight for the wind,
And apportion the waters by measure.
26 When He lmade a law for the rain,
And a path for the thunderbolt,
27 Then He saw 8wisdom and declared it;
He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out.
‘Behold, mthe fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
And to depart from evil is understanding.’ ”
29 Job further continued his discourse, and said:
2 “Oh, that I were as in months apast,
As in the days when God bwatched over me;
3 cWhen His lamp shone upon my head,
And when by His light I walked through darkness;
When dthe friendly counsel of God was over my tent;
When my children were around me;
And fthe rock poured out rivers of oil for me!
When I took my seat in the open square,
And the aged arose and stood;
And gput their hand on their mouth;
And their htongue stuck to the roof of their mouth.
And when the eye saw, then it approved me;
12 Because iI delivered the poor who cried out,
The fatherless and the one who had no helper.
And I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.
14 jI put on righteousness, and it clothed me;
My justice was like a robe and a turban.
15 I was keyes to the blind,
And I was feet to the lame.
And lI searched out the case that I did not know.
17 I broke mthe fangs of the wicked,
And plucked the victim from his teeth.
18 “Then I said, n‘I shall die in my nest,
And multiply my days as the sand.
And the dew lies all night on my branch.
And my qbow is renewed in my hand.’
And kept silence for my counsel.
And my speech settled on them as dew.
And they opened their mouth wide as for rthe spring rain.
And the light of my countenance they did not cast down.
So I dwelt as a king in the army,
As one who comforts mourners.
30 “But now they mock at me, men 1younger than I,
Whose fathers I disdained to put with the dogs of my flock.
Their vigor has perished.
Fleeing late to the wilderness, desolate and waste,
4 Who pluck 2mallow by the bushes,
And broom tree roots for their food.
They shouted at them as at a thief.
6 They had to live in the clefts of the 3valleys,
In 4caves of the earth and the rocks.
Under the nettles they nestled.
Yes, sons of vile men;
They were scourged from the land.
9 “And anow I am their taunting song;
Yes, I am their byword.
They do not hesitate bto spit in my face.
They have cast off restraint before me.
They push away my feet,
And dthey raise against me their ways of destruction.
They promote my calamity;
They have no helper.
Under the ruinous storm they roll along.
They pursue my honor as the wind,
And my prosperity has passed like a cloud.
The days of affliction take hold of me.
And my gnawing pains take no rest.
It binds me about as the collar of my coat.
And I have become like dust and ashes.
20 “I gcry out to You, but You do not answer me;
I stand up, and You regard me.
With the strength of Your hand You hoppose me.
You spoil my success.
And to the house iappointed for all living.
If they cry out when He destroys it.
25 jHave I not wept for him who was in trouble?
Has not my soul grieved for the poor?
26 kBut when I looked for good, evil came to me;
And when I waited for light, then came darkness.
27 6My heart is in turmoil and cannot rest;
Days of affliction confront me.
28 lI go about mourning, but not in the sun;
I stand up in the assembly and cry out for help.
Can His armies be counted?
