The name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;
And strengthen thee out of Zion;
And accept thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah
And fulfil all thy counsel.
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners:
Jehovah fulfil all thy petitions.
He will answer him from his holy heaven
With the saving strength of his right hand.
But we will make mention of the name of Jehovah our God.
But we are risen, and stand upright.
Let the King answer us when we call.
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.
