What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
2 Gather ayourselves together, yes, gather together,
O 1undesirable nation,
Or the day passes like chaff,
Before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you,
Before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you!
Who have upheld His justice.
Seek righteousness, seek humility.
dIt may be that you will be hidden
In the day of the Lord’s anger.
4 For eGaza shall be forsaken,
And Ashkelon desolate;
They shall drive out Ashdod fat noonday,
And Ekron shall be uprooted.
5 Woe to the inhabitants of gthe seacoast,
The nation of the Cherethites!
The word of the Lord is against you,
O hCanaan, land of the Philistines:
“I will destroy you;
So there shall be no inhabitant.”
7 The coast shall be for jthe remnant of the house of Judah;
They shall feed their flocks there;
In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening.
And lreturn their captives.
8 “I mhave heard the reproach of Moab,
And nthe insults of the people of Ammon,
With which they have reproached My people,
And omade arrogant threats against their borders.
Says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
“Surely pMoab shall be like Sodom,
And qthe people of Ammon like Gomorrah—
And a 5perpetual desolation.
The residue of My people shall plunder them,
And the remnant of My people shall possess them.”
10 This they shall have sfor their pride,
Because they have reproached and made arrogant threats
Against the people of the Lord of hosts.
For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth;
tPeople shall worship Him,
Each one from his place,
Indeed all uthe shores of the nations.
12 “You vEthiopians also,
You shall be slain by wMy sword.”
And make Nineveh a desolation,
As dry as the wilderness.
yEvery beast of the nation.
Both the zpelican and the bittern
Shall lodge on the capitals of her pillars;
Their voice shall sing in the windows;
Desolation shall be at the threshold;
For He will lay bare the acedar work.
bThat dwelt securely,
cThat said in her heart,
“I am it, and there is none besides me.”
How has she become a desolation,
A place for beasts to lie down!
Everyone who passes by her
3 Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted,
To the oppressing city!
She has not received correction;
She has not trusted in the Lord,
She has not drawn near to her God.
3 aHer princes in her midst are roaring lions;
Her judges are bevening wolves
That leave not a bone till morning.
4 Her cprophets are insolent, treacherous people;
Her priests have 1polluted the sanctuary,
They have done dviolence to the law.
He will do no unrighteousness.
2Every morning He brings His justice to light;
He never fails,
But ethe unjust knows no shame.
Their fortresses are devastated;
I have made their streets desolate,
With none passing by.
Their cities are destroyed;
There is no one, no inhabitant.
7 fI said, ‘Surely you will fear Me,
You will receive instruction’—
So that her dwelling would not be cut off,
Despite everything for which I punished her.
8 “Therefore hwait for Me,” says the Lord,
“Until the day I rise up 4for plunder;
My determination is to igather the nations
To My assembly of kingdoms,
To pour on them My indignation,
All My fierce anger;
All the earth jshall be devoured
With the fire of My jealousy.
That they all may call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him with one accord.
10 lFrom beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.
In which you transgress against Me;
For then I will take away from your midst
Those who mrejoice in your pride,
And you shall no longer be haughty
In My holy mountain.
nA meek and humble people,
And they shall trust in the name of the Lord.
qAnd speak no lies,
Nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth;
For rthey shall feed their flocks and lie down,
And no one shall make them afraid.”
14 sSing, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O Israel!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
O daughter of Jerusalem!
He has cast out your enemy.
You shall 6see disaster no more.
16 In that day vit shall be said to Jerusalem:
“Do not fear;
Zion, wlet not your hands be weak.
17 The Lord your God xin your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
yHe will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”
18 “I will gather those who zsorrow over the appointed assembly,
Who are among you,
To whom its reproach is a burden.
I will deal with all who afflict you;
I will save the alame,
And gather those who were driven out;
I will appoint them for praise and fame
In every land where they were put to shame.
20 At that time bI will bring you back,
Even at the time I gather you;
For I will give you 7fame and praise
Among all the peoples of the earth,
When I return your captives before your eyes,”
Says the Lord.
