Psalm 1

1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked,

Nor standeth in the way of sinners,

Nor sitteth in the seat of scoffers:

2But his delight is in the law of Jehovah;

And on his law doth he meditate day and night.

3And he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water,

That bringeth forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also doth not wither;

And whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4The wicked are not so,

But are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment,

Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6For Jehovah knoweth the way of the righteous;

But the way of the wicked shall perish.

ASV 1901

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.
