Make his praise glorious.
Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
And shall sing unto thee;
They shall sing to thy name. Selah
He is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
They went through the river on foot:
There did we rejoice in him.
His eyes observe the nations:
Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
And make the voice of his praise to be heard;
And suffereth not our feet to be moved.
Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
Thou layedst a sore burden upon our loins.
We went through fire and through water;
But thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
I will pay thee my vows,
And my mouth spake, when I was in distress.
With the incense of rams;
I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah
And I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
And he was extolled with my tongue.
The Lord will not hear:
He hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
Who hath not turned away my prayer,
Nor his lovingkindness from me.
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.
