What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
You have not started any reading plans.
or tie his tongue down with a rope?
2 Can you put a cordG through his nose
or pierce his jaw with a hook?r
or speak softly to you?
so that you can take him as a slave forever?s
or put him on a leashH for your girls?
or divide him among the merchants?
or his head with fishing spears?
8 Lay aI hand on him.
You will remember the battle
and never repeat it!
Does a person not collapse at the very sight of him?
10 No one is ferocious enough to rouse Leviathan;t
who then can stand against me?
Everything under heaven belongs to me.a
his power, and his graceful proportions.
14 Who can open his jaws,B
surrounded by those terrifying teeth?
closely sealed together.
16 One scale is so close to anotherC
that no air can pass between them.
so closely connectedD they cannot be separated.
18 His snortingE flashes with light,
while his eyes are like the raysF of dawn.
fiery sparks fly out!
20 Smoke billows from his nostrilsc
as from a boiling pot or burning reeds.
and flames pour out of his mouth.
and dismay dances before him.
solid as metalG and immovable.
as hard as a lower millstone!
25 When Leviathan rises, the mightyH are terrified;
they withdraw because of his thrashing.
nor will a spear, dart, or arrow.
and bronze as rotten wood.
slingstones become like stubble to him.
and he laughsd at the sound of a javelin.
spreading the mud like a threshing sledge.e
he makes the sea like an ointment jar.
32 He leaves a shining wake behind him;I
one would think the deep had gray hair!
a creature devoid of fear!
he is king over all the proud beasts.J
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.
