Psychological Language Enters CSB Translation

Recently at Together for the Gospel 2018, Dr. Tom Schreiner announced that psychological language had made its way into the translation of the Christian Standard Bible Screen Shot 2018-06-23 at 5.59.05 AM(CSB). “Tonight, the passage Dr. Mohler used said ‘revilers’ but the Christian Standard Bible said, ‘verbally abusive’. I think that’s accurate; I think it’s a bit clearer to most contemporaries,” said Schreiner. Dr. Mohler referenced 1 Corinthians 5:1-6:11 in his plenary session on the Thursday night at Together for the Gospel, in which the verses of 5:11 and 6:10 translate the word, “λοίδορος.” Almost every other version of Scripture translates the word “λοίδορος” as “reviler” whereas the CSB uses “verbally abusive.” For the first time, psychological language is seeping its way into Bible translations.
