And judge me in thy might.
Give ear to the words of my mouth.
And violent men have sought after my soul:
They have not set God before them. Selah
The Lord is of them that uphold my soul.
Destroy thou them in thy truth.
I will give thanks unto thy name, O Jehovah, for it is good.
And mine eye hath seen my desire upon mine enemies.
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.
