Christian Standard Bible

The Bible is meant to be read, understood, and shared. So your translation of God's Word should be true-to-the-original and one you like to read.

The Christian Standard Bible

captures the Bible's original meaning without compromising clarity. An optimal blend of accuracy and readability, this translation helps readers make a deeper connection with God's Word and inspires lifelong discipleship. The CSB is for everyone—for readers young and old, new and seasoned. Click here to compare translations.

The CSB is accurate: 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.

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. This makes the CSB ideal not only for preaching and study, but for reading and sharing with others.

The CSB is Readable: In the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering is clearly understandable, a literal translation is used. When a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, a more dynamic translation is used. (see chart)

The CSB Engages Readers: Research shows that Bible reading is the number one indicator for spiritual growth. The problem of how to encourage more engagement with Scripture's transformational message is not new, but it is a problem we can help solve. Bible translation should never compromise on accuracy or readability. The Christian Standard Bible is a translation that balances fidelity and readability to open the door for every believer to share the Bible with someone who has read it for a lifetime, or with someone who has never before encountered its life-changing message.

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!
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!
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Psalm 14:1
The fool says in his heart, "There's no God." They are corrupt; they do vile deeds. There is no one who does good.
The fool says in his heart, "God does not exist." They are corrupt; they do vile deeds. There is no one who does good.
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
John 3:16
For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 14:21
The one who has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. And the one who loves me will be loved by my Father. I also will love him and will reveal myself to him.
The one who has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me. And the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father. I also will love him and will reveal Myself to him.
Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.
Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Romans 6:10
For the death he died, he died to sin once for all time; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
For in light of the fact that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in light of the fact that He lives, He lives to God.
The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.
For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Endorsements

Kyle Idleman

"I like to use the Christian Standard Bible because it's a translation that's faithful to the Bible's original manuscripts, with oversight by some trusted partners in ministry. While it's highly literal to the original text, it's also remarkably clear for Bible readers today. I highly recommend the CSB as I encourage our church members—and all of us—to read and share the power of God's Word with others."

Kyle Idleman, Teaching Pastor, Southeast Christian Church, Louisville, KY

Lisa Harper

"As I travel around the country teaching the Bible to women, I encourage them to draw on the promises of God as their main source and sustenance for life. The Christian Standard Bible lines up perfectly with my core ministry goals—theological soundness and accessibility for the everyday person."

Lisa Harper, Bible teacher and author

Tony Evans

"The Christian Standard Bible provides a clear trustworthy translation of the Holy Scriptures in a style that the reader can clearly hear the voice of God in print speaking to their soul."

Tony Evans, Senior Pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas, TX

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is the 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.
  2. How is the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) different from the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)?
    The Christian Standard Bible is a revision of the HCSB, updating translation and word choices in order to optimize both fidelity to the original languages and clarity for a modern audience. The Translation Oversight Committee, co-chaired by Drs. Tom Schreiner and David Allen, incorporated advances in biblical scholarship and input from Bible scholars, pastors, and readers to sharpen both accuracy and readability.
  3. How does the Christian Standard Bible compare to other translations?
    The CSB lands in the sweet spot between the more formal ("word-for-word") translations and more dynamic ("thought-for-thought") translations. An independent analysis has proven that the Christian Standard Bible is the optimal combination of fidelity to the original languages and readability for a modern audience. The CSB was created using a methodology called Optimal Equivalence, which balances contemporary English readability with linguistic precision to the original languages, making it ideal not only for preaching and study, but for sharing with others.CSB Comparison Chart
  4. Why was the word "Holman" removed from the name of the translation?
    Holman Bible Publishers carries the name of a Philadelphia-based book binder, Andrew Jackson Holman and has a proud heritage as the oldest North American Bible publisher, dating back to 1743. While the publishing entity retains the name, the Holman family name in the name of a Bible translation often created more questions than answers. "Christian Standard Bible" removes those questions and increases appeal to the broad audience that the CSB is designed to serve.
