What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
3 After this Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. 2 And Job 1spoke, and said:
3 “May athe day perish on which I was born,
And the night in which it was said,
‘A male child is conceived.’
May God above not seek it,
Nor the light shine upon it.
5 May darkness and bthe shadow of death claim it;
May a cloud settle on it;
May the blackness of the day terrify it.
May it not 2rejoice among the days of the year,
May it not come into the number of the months.
May no joyful shout come into it!
Those cwho are ready to arouse Leviathan.
May it look for light, but have none,
And not see the 3dawning of the day;
Nor hide sorrow from my eyes.
11 “Why ddid I not die at birth?
Why did I not 4perish when I came from the womb?
12 eWhy did the knees receive me?
Or why the breasts, that I should nurse?
I would have been asleep;
Then I would have been at rest
Who fbuilt ruins for themselves,
Who filled their houses with silver;
16 Or why was I not hidden glike a stillborn child,
Like infants who never saw light?
18 There the prisoners 6rest together;
iThey do not hear the voice of the oppressor.
And the servant is free from his master.
20 “Why jis light given to him who is in misery,
And life to the kbitter of soul,
And search for it more than mhidden treasures;
And are glad when they can find the ngrave?
oAnd whom God has hedged in?
24 For my sighing comes before 8I eat,
And my groanings pour out like water.
25 For the thing I greatly pfeared has come upon me,
And what I dreaded has happened to me.
I have no rest, for trouble comes.”
4 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:
But who can withhold himself from speaking?
And you ahave strengthened weak hands.
It touches you, and you are troubled.
And the integrity of your ways your hope?
7 “Remember now, ewho ever perished being innocent?
Or where were the upright ever cut off?
fThose who plow iniquity
And sow trouble reap the same.
And by the breath of His anger they are consumed.
The voice of the fierce lion,
And gthe teeth of the young lions are broken.
11 hThe old lion perishes for lack of prey,
And the cubs of the lioness are scattered.
And my ear received a whisper of it.
13 iIn disquieting thoughts from the visions of the night,
When deep sleep falls on men,
14 Fear came upon me, and jtrembling,
Which made all my bones shake.
The hair on my body stood up.
But I could not discern its appearance.
A form was before my eyes;
There was silence;
Then I heard a voice saying:
Can a man be more pure than his Maker?
18 If He kputs no trust in His servants,
If He charges His angels with error,
Whose foundation is in the dust,
Who are crushed before a moth?
20 lThey are broken in pieces from morning till evening;
They perish forever, with no one regarding.
They die, even without wisdom.’
