With the goal of increased simplicity and focus on the text, the following features are used in variation from the ASV, as originally published by Thomas Nelson & Sons © 1901:

  1. Use of independent Old Testament and New Testament Prefaces, Table of Contents, numbering, and copyright notices has been merged into a single instance of each to provide a single, integrated Preface
  2. Page reference ranges at the top of each page have not been retained.
  3. Passage headings have not been retained
  4. Marginal cross references contained in the center column have not been retained
  5. Marginal footnotes have been reduced to mark only those variants significant enough to warrant attention, where text is omitted, disputed, or deemed theologically sensitive
  6. Maps have not been retained
