The word of the Lord that came to Joel son of Pethuel:
Hear this, you elders;
listen, all you inhabitants of the land.
Has anything like this ever happened in your days
or in the days of your ancestors?
Tell your children about it,
and let your children tell their children,
and their children the next generation.
What the devouring locust has left,
the swarming locust has eaten;
what the swarming locust has left,
the young locust has eaten;
and what the young locust has left,
the destroying locust has eaten.
In 2017, Holman Bible Publishers brought out a brand-new English translation of the Holy Bible – the Christian Standard Bible(CSB) – which represents an updated version of the Holman Christian Standard Bible(HCSB), first published back in 2004. The CSB promises to be highly accurate to the original koine Greek and Hebrew of the original texts, but also to be highly readable.
Tune in soon to see whether or not the CSB has achieved its goals.
