What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
23:23 For there is no spell against54 Jacob,
nor is there any divination against Israel.
and of Israel, ‘Look at57 what God has done!’
tn Or “in Jacob.” But given the context the meaning “against” is preferable. The words describe two techniques of consulting God; the first has to do with observing omens in general (“enchantments”), and the second with casting lots or arrows of the like (“divinations” [Ezek 21:26]). See N. H. Snaith, Leviticus and Numbers (NCB), 295–96.
tn The form is the preposition “like, as” and the word for “time”—according to the time, about this time, now.
tn The Niphal imperfect here carries the nuance of obligation—one has to say in amazement that God has done something marvelous or “it must be said.”
tn The words “look at” are not in the Hebrew text but have been added in the translation for clarity.
