For the choir director. A psalm of David. A song.
and those who hate him flee from his presence.t
so you blow them away.
As wax melts before the fire,
so the wicked are destroyed before God.u
they rejoice before God and celebrate with joy.v
Exalt him who rides on the cloudsC—
a father of the fatherless
and a champion of widows.x
He leads out the prisoners to prosperity,E
but the rebellious live in a scorched land.y
when you marched through the desert,
before God, the God of Sinai,F
before God, the God of Israel.z
you revived your inheritance when it languished.aa
God, you provided for the poor by your goodness.a
a great company of women brought the good news:b
She who stays at home divides the spoil.c
the wings of a dove are covered with silver,
and its feathers with glistening gold.d
Mount Bashan is a mountain of many peaks.f
at the mountain God desired for his abode?
The Lord will dwell there forever!g
thousands and thousands;h
the Lord is among them in the sanctuary*
as he was at Sinai.i
you received gifts fromE people,
even from the rebellious,
Day after day he bears our burdens;
God is our salvation.k
and escape from death belongs to the Lord my Lord.l
the hairy brow of one who goes on in his guilty acts.m
I will bring them back from the depths of the sean
23 so that your foot may wadeG in blood
and your dogs’ tongues may have their share
from the enemies.”o
the procession of my God,
my King, in the sanctuary.p
with musicians following;
among them are young women
bless the Lord from the fountain of Israel.r
the rulers of Judah in their assembly,H
the rulers of Zebulun, the rulers of Naphtali.s
Show your strength, God,
you who have acted on our behalf.t
kings will bring tribute to you.u
the herd of bulls with the calves of the peoples.v
Trample underfoot those with bars of silver.I
Scatter the peoples who take pleasure in war.w
31 Ambassadors will comeJ from Egypt;
Cush will stretch out its hands to God.x
sing praise to the Lord,y
33 to him who rides in the ancient, highest heavens.z
Look, he thunders with his powerful voice!aa
His majesty is over Israel,
his power is among the clouds.ab
The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.
Blessed be God!a
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.
