He judgeth among the gods.
And respect the persons of the wicked? Selah
Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
They walk to and fro in darkness:
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
And all of you sons of the Most High.
And fall like one of the princes.
For thou shalt inherit all the nations.
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.
