Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his faithful love endures forever.f
or proclaim all the praise due him?g
who practice righteousness at all times.h
when you show favor to your people.i
Come to me with your salvation
of your chosen ones,
rejoice in the joy of your nation,
and boast about your heritage.j
we have done wrong and have acted wickedly.k
the significance of your wondrous works
or remember your many acts of faithful love;
instead, they rebelled by the sea—the Red Sea.l
to make his power known.m
he led them through the depths as through a desert.n
he redeemed them from the power of the enemy.o
not one of them remained.p
and sang his praise.q
and would not wait for his counsel.r
and tested God in the desert.s
but sent a wasting disease among them.t
and of Aaron, the Lord’s holy one.u
it covered the assembly of Abiram.v
flames consumed the wicked.w
and worshiped the cast metal image.x
for the image of a grass-eating ox.y
who did great things in Egypt,z
22 wondrous works in the land of Ham,C
awe-inspiring acts at the Red Sea.aa
if Moses his chosen one
had not stood before him in the breach
to turn his wrath away from destroying them.ab
and did not believe his promise.ac
and did not listen to the Lord.ad
that he would make them fall in the deserta
27 and would disperse their descendantsA
among the nations,
scattering them throughout the lands.b
and a plague broke out against them.d
and the plague was stopped.e
throughout all generations to come.f
33 for they embittered his spirit,D
and he spoke rashly with his lips.h
as the Lord had commanded themi
and adopted their ways.j
which became a snare to them.k
37 They sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons.l
the blood of their sons and daughters
whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
so the land became polluted with blood.m
and prostituted themselves by their deeds.n
and he abhorred his own inheritance.o
those who hated them ruled over them.p
and they were subdued under their power.q
but they continued to rebel deliberately
and were beaten down by their iniquity.r
he took note of their distress,s
and relented according to the abundance
of his faithful love.t
before all their captors.u
and gather us from the nations,
so that we may give thanks to your holy name
and rejoice in your praise.v
from everlasting to everlasting.w
Let all the people say, “Amen!”
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.
