Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah
Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
And cause thine indignation toward us to cease.
Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
That thy people may rejoice in thee?
And grant us thy salvation.
For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints:
But let them not turn again to folly.
That glory may dwell in our land.
Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
And righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
And our land shall yield its increase.
And shall make his footsteps a way to walk in.
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.
