I have no good beyond thee.
They are the excellent in whom is all my delight.
Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer,
Nor take their names upon my lips.
Thou maintainest my lot.
Yea, I have a goodly heritage.
Yea, my heart instructeth me in the night seasons.
Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
My flesh also shall dwell in safety.
Neither wilt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption.
In thy presence is fulness of joy;
In thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
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.
