What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
1 Kings 20:39
20:39 When the king passed by, he called out to the king, “Your servant went out into the heat56 of the battle, and then a man turned aside and brought me a prisoner.57 He told me, ‘Guard this prisoner. If he ends up missing for any reason,58 you will pay with your life or with a talent59 of silver.’60
tn Heb “middle.”
tn Heb “man” (also a second time later in this verse).
tn Heb “if being missed, he is missed.” The emphatic infinitive absolute before the finite verbal form lends solemnity to the warning.
tn The Hebrew term כִּכָּר (kikkar, “circle”) refers generally to something that is round. When used of metals it can refer to a disk-shaped weight made of the metal or to a standard unit of weight, generally regarded as a talent. Since the accepted weight for a talent of metal is about 75 pounds, this would have amounted to about 75 pounds of silver.
tn Heb “your life will be in place of his life, or a unit of silver you will pay.”
