do not envy those who do wrong.v
and wilt like tender green plants.w
3 Trust in the Lord and do what is good;x
and he will give you your heart’s desires.z
trust in him, and he will act,aa
your justice like the noonday.ab
7 Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for him;ac
do not be agitated by one who prospers in his way,
by the person who carries out evil plans.ad
do not be agitated—it can only bring harm.ae
but those who put their hope in the Lord
will inherit the land.af
though you look for him, he will not be there.a
11 But the humble will inherit the landb
and will enjoy abundant prosperity.c
and gnashes his teeth at him.d
13 The Lord laughs at hime
because he sees that his day is coming.f
14 The wicked have drawn the sword and strung theA bow
to bring down the poor and needy
and to slaughter those whose way is upright.g
and their bows will be broken.h
than the abundance of many wicked people.i
17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken,j
but the Lord supports the righteous.k
and their inheritance will last forever.l
they will be satisfied in days of hunger.m
the Lord’s enemies, like the glory of the pastures,
will fade away—
they will fade away like smoke.n
but the righteous one is gracious and giving.o
but those cursed by him will be destroyed.p
and he takes pleasure in his way.q
because the Lord supports him with his hand.r
yet I have not seen the righteous abandoned
or his children begging for bread.s
and his children are a blessing.t
and settle permanently.u
and will not abandon his faithful ones.v
They are kept safe forever,
but the children of the wicked will be destroyed.w
and dwell in it permanently.x
his tongue speaks what is just.y
his steps do not falter.z
and intends to kill him;aa
in the power of the wicked one
or allow him to be condemned when he is judged.ab
and he will exalt you to inherit the land.
You will watch when the wicked are destroyed.ac
36 Then IA passed by and noticed he was gone;
I searched for him, but he could not be found.a
the future of the wicked will be destroyed.c
their refuge in a time of distress.d
he will deliver them from the wicked and will save them
because they take refuge in him.e
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
