We give thanks, for thy name is near:
Men tell of thy wondrous works.
I will judge uprightly.
I have set up the pillars of it. Selah
And to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
Speak not with a stiff neck.
Nor yet from the south, cometh lifting up.
He putteth down one, and lifteth up another.
It is full of mixture, and he poureth out of the same:
Surely the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall drain them, and drink them.
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
But the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
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.
