What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
You have not started any reading plans.
And loving favor rather than silver and gold.
Jehovah is the maker of them all.
But the simple pass on, and suffer for it.
Is riches, and honor, and life.
He that keepeth his soul shall be far from them.
And even when he is old he will not depart from it.
And the borrower is servant to the lender.
And the rod of his wrath shall fail.
For he giveth of his bread to the poor.
Yea, strife and ignominy will cease.
For the grace of his lips the king will be his friend.
But he overthroweth the words of the treacherous man.
I shall be slain in the streets.
He that is abhorred of Jehovah shall fall therein.
But the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
And he that giveth to the rich, shall come only to want.
And apply thy heart unto my knowledge.
If they be established together upon thy lips.
I have made them known to thee this day, even to thee.
Of counsels and knowledge,
That thou mayest carry back words of truth to them that send thee?
Neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
And despoil of life those that despoil them.
And with a wrathful man thou shalt not go:
And get a snare to thy soul.
Or of them that are sureties for debts.
Why should he take away thy bed from under thee?
Which thy fathers have set.
He shall not stand before mean men.
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.
