What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
9 The 1burden of the word of the Lord—
Against the land of Hadrach,
And aDamascus its resting place
(For bthe eyes of men
And all the tribes of Israel
Are on the Lord);
2 Also against cHamath, which borders on it,
Heaped up silver like the dust,
And gold like the mire of the streets.
4 Behold, gthe Lord will cast her out;
He will destroy hher power in the sea,
And she will be devoured by fire.
Gaza also shall be very sorrowful;
And iEkron, for He dried up her expectation.
The king shall perish from Gaza,
And Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.
And I will cut off the pride of the kPhilistines.
And the abominations from between his teeth.
But he who remains, even he shall be for our God,
And shall be like a leader in Judah,
And Ekron like a Jebusite.
8 lI will camp around My house
Because of the army,
Because of him who passes by and him who returns.
No more shall an oppressor pass through them,
For now I have seen with My eyes.
9 “Rejoice mgreatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, nyour King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.
10 I owill cut off the chariot from Ephraim
And the horse from Jerusalem;
The pbattle bow shall be cut off.
He shall speak peace to the nations;
His dominion shall be q‘from sea to sea,
And from the River to the ends of the earth.’
11 “As for you also,
Because of the blood of your covenant,
I will set your rprisoners free from the waterless pit.
sYou prisoners of hope.
Even today I declare
That I will restore tdouble to you.
Fitted the bow with Ephraim,
And raised up your sons, O Zion,
Against your sons, O Greece,
And made you like the sword of a mighty man.”
And uHis arrow will go forth like lightning.
The Lord God will blow the trumpet,
And go vwith whirlwinds from the south.
15 The Lord of hosts will wdefend them;
They shall devour and subdue with slingstones.
They shall drink and roar as if with wine;
They shall be filled with blood like 3basins,
Like the corners of the altar.
16 The Lord their God will xsave them in that day,
As the flock of His people.
zLifted like a banner over His land—
cGrain shall make the young men thrive,
And new wine the young women.
The Lord will make 2flashing clouds;
He will give them showers of rain,
Grass in the field for everyone.
The diviners envision elies,
And tell false dreams;
They fcomfort in vain.
Therefore the people wend their way like gsheep;
3 “My anger is kindled against the ishepherds,
For the Lord of hosts kwill visit His flock,
The house of Judah,
And lwill make them as His royal horse in the battle.
4 From him comes mthe cornerstone,
From him nthe tent peg,
From him the battle bow,
From him every 6ruler together.
Who otread down their enemies
In the mire of the streets in the battle.
They shall fight because the Lord is with them,
And the riders on horses shall be put to shame.
And I will save the house of Joseph.
pI will bring them back,
Because I qhave mercy on them.
They shall be as though I had not cast them aside;
For I am the Lord their God,
And I rwill hear them.
And their sheart shall rejoice as if with wine.
Yes, their children shall see it and be glad;
Their heart shall rejoice in the Lord.
8 I will twhistle for them and gather them,
For I will redeem them;
uAnd they shall increase as they once increased.
And they shall wremember Me in far countries;
They shall live, together with their children,
And they shall return.
10 xI will also bring them back from the land of Egypt,
And gather them from Assyria.
I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon,
yUntil no more room is found for them.
11 zHe shall pass through the sea with affliction,
And strike the waves of the sea:
All the depths of 8the River shall dry up.
Then athe pride of Assyria shall be brought down,
And bthe scepter of Egypt shall depart.
And cthey shall walk up and down in His name,”
Says the Lord.
