1 Do you really speak righteously, you mighty ones? s
with your hands you weigh out violence in the land. u
liars err from birth. v
like the deaf cobra that stops up its ears, w
who skillfully weave spells. x
Lord, tear out the young lions’ fangs. y
like a woman’s miscarried child,
they will not see the sun. c
whether green or burning—
when he sees the retribution; f
he will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. g
“Yes, there is a reward for the righteous!
There is a God who judges on earth!” h
About The Holman Christian Standard Bible
The complete Holman Christian Standard Bible® is now available for the first time ever! More than fifteen years in the making, crafted by the shared expertise of nearly a hundred conservative scholars and English stylists, the Holman CSB® sets the standard in painstaking biblical accuracy and pure literary form.
Accurate, yet highly readable, it's a translation committed to leaving both the grace and gravity of the original languages intact while carefully creating a smooth flow of wording for the reader.
Stylistically, this inaugural edition contributes to the clarity of the written Word, arranging the poetic portions of the Scripture into complete lines of thought, and revering God's presence on each page by capitalizing all the pronouns that refer to Him.
