Let them also that hate him flee before him.
As wax melteth before the fire,
So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
Yea, let them rejoice with gladness.
Cast up a highway for him that rideth through the deserts;
His name is Jehovah; and exult ye before him.
Is God in his holy habitation.
He bringeth out the prisoners into prosperity;
But the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
When thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah
The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God:
Yon Sinai trembled at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
Thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
Thou, O God, didst prepare of thy goodness for the poor.
The women that publish the tidings are a great host.
And she that tarrieth at home divideth the spoil.
It is as the wings of a dove covered with silver,
And her pinions with yellow gold.
It was as when it snoweth in Zalmon.
A high mountain is the mountain of Bashan.
At the mountain which God hath desired for his abode?
Yea, Jehovah will dwell in it for ever.
The Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the sanctuary.
Thou hast received gifts among men,
Yea, among the rebellious also, that Jehovah God might dwell with them.
Even the God who is our salvation. Selah
And unto Jehovah the Lord belongeth escape from death.
The hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his guiltiness.
I will bring them again from the depths of the sea;
That the tongue of thy dogs may have its portion from thine enemies.
Even the goings of my God, my King, into the sanctuary.
In the midst of the damsels playing with timbrels.
Even the Lord, ye that are of the fountain of Israel.
The princes of Judah and their council,
The princes of Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali.
Strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.
The multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the peoples,
Trampling under foot the pieces of silver:
He hath scattered the peoples that delight in war.
Ethiopia shall haste to stretch out her hands unto God.
Oh sing praises unto the Lord; Selah
Lo, he uttereth his voice, a mighty voice.
His excellency is over Israel,
And his strength is in the skies.
The God of Israel, he giveth strength and power unto his people.
Blessed be God.
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.
