What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
42:38 But Jacob77 replied, “My son will not go down there with you, for his brother is dead and he alone is left.78 If an accident happens to him on the journey you have to make, then you will bring down my gray hair79 in sorrow to the grave.”80
tn Heb “he”; the referent (Jacob) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
sn The expression he alone is left meant that (so far as Jacob knew) Benjamin was the only surviving child of his mother Rachel.
sn The expression bring down my gray hair is figurative, using a part for the whole—they would put Jacob in the grave. But the gray head signifies a long life of worry and trouble.
tn Heb “to Sheol,” the dwelling place of the dead.
