Shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
He is a great King over all the earth.
And nations under our feet.
The glory of Jacob whom he loved. Selah
Jehovah with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
Sing ye praises with understanding.
God sitteth upon his holy throne.
To be the people of the God of Abraham;
For the shields of the earth belong unto God:
He is greatly exalted.
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.
