What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
You have not started any reading plans.
and the night that said,
‘A man-child is conceived.’
May God above not seek it,
or light shine on it.
Let clouds settle upon it;
let the blackness of the day terrify it.
let it not rejoice among the days of the year;
let it not come into the number of the months.
let no joyful cry be hearda in it.
8 Let those curse it who curse the Sea,b
those who are skilled to rouse up Leviathan.
let it hope for light, but have none;
may it not see the eyelids of the morning—
and hide trouble from my eyes.
come forth from the womb and expire?
or breasts for me to suck?
I would be asleep; then I would be at rest
who rebuild ruins for themselves,
who fill their houses with silver.
like an infant that never sees the light?
and there the weary are at rest.
they do not hear the voice of the taskmaster.
and the slaves are free from their masters.
and life to the bitter in soul,
and dig for it more than for hidden treasures;
and are glad when they find the grave?
whom God has fenced in?
24 For my sighing comes likec my bread,
and my groanings are poured out like water.
and what I dread befalls me.
I have no rest; but trouble comes.”
