Who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
And speaketh truth in his heart;
Nor doeth evil to his friend,
Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor;
But who honoreth them that fear Jehovah;
He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not;
Nor taketh reward against the innocent.
He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
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.
