What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
17:14 for the life of all flesh is its blood.38 So I have said to the Israelites: You must not eat the blood of any living thing39 because the life of every living thing is its blood—all who eat it will be cut off.40
tn Heb “for the life/soul (נֶפֶשׁ, nefesh) of all flesh, its blood in its life/soul (נֶפֶשׁ) it is.” The LXX, Syriac, and Vulgate leave out “in its life/soul,” which would naturally yield “for the life of all flesh, its blood it is” (see J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 261, 263). The present translation is something of an oversimplification, but the meaning is basically the same in any case. Cf. NRSV “For the life of every creature—its blood is its life.”
