Last month I did a post on the updated Christian Standard Bible (formerly Holman Christian Standard Bible). Well, the publishers have made the complete text of this newly revised and updated Bible online for free.
I’ve been browsing through it, noting changes here and there–most of which I like. It seems to be more in line with the NIV and the ESV now–something of a median.
How happy is the one who does not
walk in the advice of the wicked
or stand in the pathway with sinners
or sit in the company of mockers! –Psalm 1:1, bold added
God presented him as an atoning sacrifice in his blood, received through faith, to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his restraint God passed over the sins previously committed. –Rom. 3:25, bold added
If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. –Gal. 5:25, bold added
I’m truly getting tired of revisions, especially when it comes to a Bible I’ve made my primary Bible. At any rate, you decide.
