You have not started any reading plans.
And whosoever erreth thereby is not wise.
He that provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own life.
But every fool will be quarrelling.
Therefore he shall beg in harvest, and have nothing.
But a man of understanding will draw it out.
But a faithful man who can find?
Blessed are his children after him.
Scattereth away all evil with his eyes.
I am pure from my sin?
Both of them alike are an abomination to Jehovah.
Whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
Jehovah hath made even both of them.
Open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
But when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.
But the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
And hold him in pledge that is surety for foreigners.
But afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
And by wise guidance make thou war.
Therefore company not with him that openeth wide his lips.
His lamp shall be put out in blackness of darkness.
But the end thereof shall not be blessed.
Wait for Jehovah, and he will save thee.
And a false balance is not good.
How then can man understand his way?
And after vows to make inquiry.
And bringeth the threshing-wheel over them.
Searching all his innermost parts.
And his throne is upholden by kindness.
And the beauty of old men is the hoary head.
And strokes reach the innermost parts.
About American Standard Version
The ASV has long been regarded by many scholars as the most literal English translation since the King James Version—maybe the most literal translation ever. This has made the translation very popular for careful English Bible study, but not for ease of reading. While the KJV was translated entirely from “western manuscripts,” the ASV 1901 was influenced also by the older “eastern manuscripts” that form the basis for most of our modern English translations. Because the ASV 1901 is very difficult to find in print, Logos is pleased to be able to preserve and distribute this significant work. This is an excellent choice for comparative English study.
