Many are they that rise up against me.
There is no help for him in God. Selah
My glory and the lifter up of my head.
And he answereth me out of his holy hill. Selah
I awaked; for Jehovah sustaineth me.
That have set themselves against me round about.
For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone;
Thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked.
Thy blessing be upon thy people. Selah
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.
