The Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a translation of the Bible in contemporary English. Published by Holman Bible Publishers in 2017 as the successor to the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB), the CSB "incorporates advances in biblical scholarship and input from Bible scholars, pastors, and readers to sharpen both accuracy and readability."The CSB relies on recently published critical editions of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts. Work on the CSB was completed in June 2016, with the first full edition released in March 2017. The Christian Standard Bible is a significant revision of the 2009 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) edition. It removes some of the novel features of the HCSB, such as consistently translating the tetragrammaton as "Lord" rather than "Yahweh" and using "brothers and sisters" for the plural term "brothers" in Greek. The HCSB was translated by an international team of 100 scholars from 17 denominations. The HCSB New Testament was released in 1999, and the entire translation was released in 2004. Work on the CSB revision was undertaken by the Translation and Review Team, a trans-denominational group of 21 conservative Evangelical Christian biblical scholars. In February 2020, an update to the translation (CSB Text Edition: 2020) was released.
