Psalm 15

A Psalm of David.

1Jehovah, who shall sojourn in thy tabernacle?

Who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness,

And speaketh truth in his heart;

3He that slandereth not with his tongue,

Nor doeth evil to his friend,

Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor;

4In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,

But who honoreth them that fear Jehovah;

He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not;

5He that putteth not out his money to interest,

Nor taketh reward against the innocent.

He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

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.
