What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
7:32 The right thigh you must give as a contribution offering41 to the priest from your peace offering sacrifices.
tn Older English versions (e.g., KJV, ASV) translate this Hebrew term (תְּרוּמָה, térumah) “heave offering,” derived from the idea of “to raise, to lift” found in the verbal root (cf. NAB “a raised offering”). “Contribution offering” is a better English rendering because it refers to something “taken out from” (i.e., “lifted up from”; cf. the Hebrew term הֵרִים (herim) in, e.g., Lev 2:9; 4:8, etc.) the offering as a special contribution to the specific priest who presided over the offering procedures in any particular instance (see the next verse and R. E. Averbeck, NIDOTTE 4:335–37). Cf. TEV “as a special contribution”; NCV, NLT “as a gift.”
