American Standard Version of the Bible
This is the American Standard Version of the Bible. Published in 1901, the ASV emerged from the British efforts on the Revised Version. The ASV retains some of the Elizabethan wording of the King James Version. The ASV is popular with the Jehovah's Witnesses due to the use of Jehovah as the divine name in this translation. The ASV became the basis for the Revised Standard Edition (1971), the Amplified Bible (1965), the New American Standard Bible (1995) and the Recovery Version (1999), as well as the Living Bible (1971). This text is in the public domain in the US because it as published prior to 1923.
