What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
2 Kings 23:11
23:11 He removed from the entrance to the Lord’s temple the statues of horses28 that the kings of Judah had placed there in honor of the sun god. (They were kept near the room of Nathan Melech the eunuch, which was situated among the courtyards.)29 He burned up the chariots devoted to the sun god.30
tn Heb “who/which was in the […?].” The meaning of the Hebrew term פַּרְוָרִים (parvarim), translated here “courtyards,” is uncertain. The relative clause may indicate where the room was located or explain who Nathan Melech was, “the eunuch who was in the courtyards.” See M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 288–89, who translate “the officer of the precincts.”
tn Heb “and the chariots of the sun he burned with fire.”
