What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
You have not started any reading plans.
16 Then Job answered:
You are all miserable comforters.q
What provokes you that you continue testifying?
I could string words together against you
and shake my head at you.
and the consolation from my lips would bring relief.s
and if I hold back, does any of it leave me?
7 Surely heE has now exhausted me.
You have devastated my entire family.
8 You have shriveled me upF—it has become a witness;
my frailty rises up against me and testifies to my face.
9 His anger tears at me, and he harassesa me.
He gnashes his teeth at me.
My enemy pierces me with his eyes.
and strike my cheeks with contempt;b
they join themselves together against me.
11 God hands me over to the unjust;A
he throws me to the wicked.
he seized me by the scruff of the neck
and smashed me to pieces.
He set me up as his target;c
13 his archersB surround me.
He pierces my kidneys without mercy
and pours my bile on the ground.
14 He breaks through my defenses again and again;C
he charges at me like a warrior.d
and darknessf covers my eyes,
17 although my hands are free from violenceg
and my prayer is pure.
may my cry for help find no resting place.h
and my advocate is in the heights!i
as I weep before God.
21 I wish that someone might argue for a man with Godj
just as anyoneE would for a friend.
before I go the way of no return.
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.
