What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
This message came to me concerning Tyre:
Wail, you trading ships of Tarshish,
for the harbor and houses of Tyre are gone!
The rumors you heard in Cyprus*
are all true.
and you merchants of Sidon.
Your traders crossed the sea,*
They brought you grain from Egypt*
and harvests from along the Nile.
You were the marketplace of the world.
for Tyre, the fortress of the sea, says,*
“Now I am childless;
I have no sons or daughters.”
there will be great sorrow.
Wail, you people who live in distant lands!
What a long history was yours!
Think of all the colonists you sent to distant places.
that great creator of kingdoms?
Her traders were all princes,
her merchants were nobles.
to destroy your pride
and bring low all earth’s nobility.
sweep over the land like the flooding Nile,
for Tyre is defenseless.*
and shook the kingdoms of the earth.
He has spoken out against Phoenicia,*
ordering that her fortresses be destroyed.
O daughter of Sidon, for you have been crushed.
Even if you flee to Cyprus,
you will find no rest.”
13 Look at the land of Babylonia* —
the people of that land are gone!
The Assyrians have handed Babylon over
to the wild animals of the desert.
They have built siege ramps against its walls,
torn down its palaces,
and turned it to a heap of rubble.
for your harbor is destroyed!
you forgotten harlot.
Make sweet melody and sing your songs
so you will be remembered again.
17 Yes, after seventy years the Lord will revive Tyre. But she will be no different than she was before. She will again be a prostitute to all kingdoms around the world. 18 But in the end her profits will be given to the Lord. Her wealth will not be hoarded but will provide good food and fine clothing for the Lord’s priests.
