What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
1 Kings 11:2
11:2 They came from nations about which the Lord had warned the Israelites, “You must not establish friendly relations with them!1 If you do, they will surely shift your allegiance to their gods.”2 But Solomon was irresistibly attracted to them.3
tn Heb “you must not go into them, and they must not go into you.”
tn Heb “Surely they will bend your heart after their gods.” The words “if you do” are supplied in the translation for clarification.
tn Heb “Solomon clung to them for love.” The pronominal suffix, translated “them,” is masculine here, even though it appears the foreign women are in view. Perhaps this is due to attraction to the masculine forms used of the nations earlier in the verse.
