This is not a literal translation, nor is it true to the ASV. E.g., Mark 15:37 should say, "He gave up the Spirit" or "He expired", in order to stay true to the Greek and the ASV. (This is *why* the Centurion is freaked out... because he sees the Spirit leave Jesus' body, just as it entered [stayed on] it during his baptism.)

I love the fact that God's name is not changed or 'hidden'
