I will show forth all thy marvellous works.
I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High.
They stumble and perish at thy presence.
Thou sittest in the throne judging righteously.
Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
And the cities which thou hast overthrown,
The very remembrance of them is perished.
He hath prepared his throne for judgment;
He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness.
A high tower in times of trouble;
For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
Declare among the people his doings.
He forgetteth not the cry of the poor.
Behold my affliction which I suffer of them that hate me,
Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;
In the gates of the daughter of Zion I will rejoice in thy salvation.
In the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
Even all the nations that forget God.
Nor the expectation of the poor perish for ever.
Let the nations be judged in thy sight.
Let the nations know themselves to be but men. Selah
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.
