Overview

American Standard Version (ASV), is a version of the Bible that was released in 1901.
The ASV has been used for many years by the Jehovah's Witnesses. The reasons for their choosing of the ASV were twofold: its usage of "Jehovah" as the Divine Name, which was congruent with their doctrine, and they derived their name from Isaiah 43.10, 12, both of which contain the phrase, "Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah." Also, there was a perception that the ASV had improved the translation of some verses in the King James Version, and in other places it reduced the verses that they found to be erroneously translated in the KJV to mere footnotes, removed from the main text altogether.

The book is the best
T. Michael Burch More than 1 year ago
This is more in the style of King James in language. The Find feature based on abreviations works well, but the table of contents go to feature only works on the first page for me. When I scroll to another book and tap it goes back to what was highlited on the previous menue. Due to language and glitches I would not recomend it. The ASV, Forward2 Bible is a much better ASV and easier to use, i.e. more intuitive.
