I just started reading some E.M. Bounds material. Would any one know what Bible he quotes from ?

American Revised Version = American Standard Version

Here's the scoop:

The Revised Version, Standard American Edition of the Bible, more commonly known as the American Standard Version (ASV), is a version of the Bible that was released in 1901. It was originally best known by its full name, but soon came to have other names, such as the American Revised Version, the American Standard Revision, the American Standard Revised Bible, and the American Standard Edition. By the time its copyright was renewed in 1929, it had come to be known at last by its present name, the American Standard Version. Because of its prominence in seminaries, however, it was sometimes simply called the "Standard Bible". (Wikepedia)

Bounds lived from 1835 to 1913, so he was being very "modern" when he quoted from what we now call the ASV so soon after it was published late in his ministry.
