A Miktam of David.q
1 Protect me, God, for I take refuge in you.r
2 IE said to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have nothing good besides you.”F,s
3 As for the holy people who are in the land,t
they are the noble ones.
All my delight is in them.
4 The sorrows of those who take another god
for themselves will multiply;
I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood,
and I will not speak their names with my lips.u
5 Lord, you are my portionG
and my cup of blessing;
you hold my future.v
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me
in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.w
7 I will bless the Lord who counsels mex—
even at night when my thoughts trouble me.H,y
8 I always let the Lord guide me.I
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.z
and my whole being rejoices;
my body also rests securely.aa
10 For you will not abandon me to Sheol;ab
you will not allow your faithful one to see decay.ac
11 You reveal the path of life to me;
in your presence is abundant joy;ad
at your right hand are eternal pleasures.ae
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.
