American Revision1 New Testament, derived from the electronic (ASV1901) text with original words placed in footnotes.

This is a minor revision of the American Standard Version New Testament with the following modifications.
1. Replaces the Early Modern English pronouns such as thee, thou, thine, thy and ye to suggested modern equivalents.
2. Early Modern English verb endings such as eth, th, est, st are converted to suggested modern equivalents.
3. The original words that were replaced were moved to footnote status in the form of hyperlinked asterisks (*).
4. Since electronic ASV texts have alterations from the printed text and as such, after comparing a different Electronic ASV text (ebible.org) as well as a error report which is a notation to some of the known typos, upper/lower case, differences in punctuations used and missing words/ phrases, I made edits on the text in order to make it closer to the printed copy.
However, I made the decision to rename this bible in order to avoid the possibility of some minor differences in this text to a printed ASV text.
5. This work doesn't have the original translators footnotes or any other notes that are not the main text.
6. This work doesn't have the square brackets in the text.


The reason for this American Revision1 New Testament is to provide a translation in the traditional English but an update to the 'thee and thou' and other such older English which may keep some modern readers from benefitting from this excellent translation.


The ASV is in itself a revision of the King James and is a very literal version made for public consumption and the ASV preserves most of the traditional Bible English found in KJV.
Many verses of the ASV are verbatum to the KJV and also many others where there are only a few words in a given Bible verse that were changed.
Then to a less extent, in some verses, words/ phrases are rearranged compared to the KJV but mostly it is the same as KJV.
However, the ASV still has the older pronouns and verb endings which may keep many from using this useful Bible.

By far, the largest difference between the ASV and KJV is that the ASV follows the early Critical Texts (CT), such as Wescott&Hort.
The (CT) generally has the shorter Bible verses as well as about 16 verses that are left blank compared to the KJV/TR.
It must be pointed out that the ASV follows the KJV very closely a very large majority of the time
However, there were needed corrections to the KJV text that were made in the ASV.

If you find any needed corrections or have other concerns, Private Message me here.
I hope to add more features to this work in the future, if the Lord wills it.

I have added file AR1bnt which doesn't have the footnotes for the original words.
