Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
And they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
And consult together against thy hidden ones.
Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;
That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
Against thee do they make a covenant:
Moab, and the Hagarenes;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre:
They have helped the children of Lot. Selah
As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;
Who became as dung for the earth.
Yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;
The habitations of God.
As stubble before the wind.
And as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire,
And terrify them with thy storm.
That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.
Yea, let them be confounded and perish;
Art the Most High over all the earth.
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.
