Attend unto my prayer.
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. Selah
Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
His years shall be as many generations.
Oh prepare lovingkindness and truth, that they may preserve him.
That I may daily perform my vows.
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.
