Even unto God with my voice; and he will give ear unto me.
My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not;
My soul refused to be comforted.
I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed. Selah
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
The years of ancient times.
I commune with mine own heart;
And my spirit maketh diligent search.
And will he be favorable no more?
Doth his promise fail for evermore?
Hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah
But I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.
For I will remember thy wonders of old.
And muse on thy doings.
Who is a great god like unto God?
Thou hast made known thy strength among the peoples.
The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
The waters saw thee, they were afraid:
The depths also trembled.
The skies sent out a sound:
Thine arrows also went abroad.
The lightnings lightened the world:
The earth trembled and shook.
And thy paths in the great waters,
And thy footsteps were not known.
By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
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.
