And in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
And hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah
Thou settest a crown of fine gold on his head.
Even length of days for ever and ever.
Honor and majesty dost thou lay upon him.
Thou makest him glad with joy in thy presence.
And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he shall not be moved.
Thy right hand will find out those that hate thee.
Jehovah will swallow them up in his wrath,
And the fire shall devour them.
And their seed from among the children of men.
They conceived a device which they are not able to perform.
Thou wilt make ready with thy bowstrings against their face.
So will we sing and praise thy power.
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.
