A Maskil of Asaph.ad
Why does your anger burn
against the sheep of your pasture?ae
which you purchased long ago
and redeemed as the tribe for your own possession.af
Remember Mount Zion where you dwell.ag
3 Make your wayJ to the perpetual ruins,
to all that the enemy has destroyed in the sanctuary.a
where you met with us.A
They set up their emblems as signs.b
with hatchets and picks.d
they utterlyB desecrated
the dwelling place of your name.e
“Let’s oppress them relentlessly.”
They burned every place throughout the land
There is no longer a prophet.
And none of us knows how long this will last.g
Will the foe insult your name forever?h
performing saving acts on the earth.j
you smashed the heads of the sea monsters in the water;k
you fed him to the creatures of the desert.l
15 You opened up springs and streams;m
you dried up ever-flowing rivers.n
you established the moon and the sun.o
you made summer and winter.p
and a foolish people has insulted your name.q
19 Do not give to beasts the life of your dove;E
do not forget the lives of your poor people forever.r
20 Consider the covenant,s
for the dark places of the land are full of violence.t
let the poor and needy praise your name.u
22 Rise up, God, champion your cause!v
Remember the insults
that fools bring against you all day long.w
the tumult of your opponents that goes up constantly.x
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.
