What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
1 Kings 8:35
8:35 “The time will come when56 the skies are shut up tightly and no rain falls because your people57 sinned against you. When they direct their prayers toward this place, renew their allegiance to you,58 and turn away from their sin because you punish59 them,
tn Heb “they”; the referent (your people) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
tn Heb “confess [or perhaps, “praise”] your name.”
tn The Hebrew text has “because you answer them,” as if the verb is from עָנָה (’anah, “to answer”). However, this reference to a divine answer is premature, since the next verse asks for God to intervene in mercy. It is better to revocalize the consonantal text as תְעַנֵּם (té’annem, “you afflict them”), a Piel verb form from the homonym עָנָה (“to afflict”).
