In the United States, the Revised Version was adapted and revised as the "Revised Version, Standard American Edition" (better known as the [[American Standard Version]]) in 1901. The American Standard Version is largely identical to the Revised Version of 1885. One noticeable difference is the much more frequent use of the form "[[Jehovah]]" in the Old Testament of the American Standard Version, rather than "the {{Sc|L|ORD}}" that is used more so in the Revised Version of 1885, to represent the Divine Name, the [[Tetragrammaton]].
