Of Weird Connections

I have my ipod set so its settings are in German.  I also named my ipod Humphrey Alaric.  Both facts amuse me. When it's connected and syncing it tells me it's, "verbunden," or connected.

1 John 2:5 reads in English, "But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him."

Except in my German Bible the in him is translated "mit ihm verbunden".  Literally, "with him connected."

Which led me down the rabbit trail of considering how we need to continually connect ourselves with both God's word and God's love.

Does Apple sell a sync cable for that?
