For the choir director: with the flutes. A psalm of David.
consider my sighing.t
2 Pay attention to the sound of my cry,u
my King and my God,v
for I pray to you.
3 In the morning,w Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I plead my case to youx and watch expectantly.
evil cannot dwell with you.y
5 The boastful cannot stand in your sight;z
you hate all evildoers.aa
6 You destroy those who tell lies;ab
the Lord abhors violent and treacherous people.ac
by the abundance of your faithful love;ad
I bow down toward your holy temple
in reverential awe of you.ae
8 Lord, lead me in your righteousnessaf
because of my adversaries;
make your way straight before me.ag
9 For there is nothing reliable in what they say;ah
destruction is within them;
their throat is an open grave;
they flatter with their tongues.ai
let them fall by their own schemes.aj
Drive them outak because of their many crimes,
for they rebel against you.al
11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;am
let them shout for joy forever.
May you shelter them,an
and may those who love your name boast about you.ao
you surround him with favor like a shield.ap
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.
