Read the Complete Text of the Christian Standard Bible Online

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.

Samples:

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.

    In Psalm 1 v1, I love that progression in those translations which show walk through stand to sit, the latter implying completion as in the song “He sat down at the right hand of the Father in Majesty”.

    Colin,
    Here’s the previous version of Ps 1:1 in the HCSB:

    “How happy is the man
    who does not follow the advice of the wicked
    or take the path of sinners
    or join a group of mockers!
