What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
12:12 Do not let her be like a baby born dead, whose flesh is half-consumed when it comes out of its23 mother’s womb!”
tc The words “its mother” and “its flesh” are among the so-called tiqqune sopherim, or “emendations of the scribes.” According to this tradition the text originally had here “our mother” and “our flesh,” but the ancient scribes changed these pronouns from the first person to the third person. Apparently they were concerned that the image of Moses’ mother giving birth to a baby with physical defects of the sort described here was somehow inappropriate, given the stature and importance of Moses.
