What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
2 Samuel 20:1
“We have no share in David;
we have no inheritance in this son of Jesse!
Every man go home,4 O Israel!”
tn Heb “a man of worthlessness.”
tc The MT reads לְאֹהָלָיו (lé’ohalav, “to his tents”). For a similar idiom, see 19:9. An ancient scribal tradition understands the reading to be לְאלֹהָיו (le’lohav, “to his gods”). The word is a tiqqun sopherim, and the scribes indicate that they changed the word from “gods” to “tents” so as to soften its theological implications. In a consonantal Hebrew text the change involved only the metathesis of two letters.
