  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Jasher 
  upright.  "The  Book  of  Jasher,"  rendered  in  the  LXX.  "the  Book  of 
  the  Upright  One,"  by  the  Vulgate  "the  Book  of  Just  Ones,"  was 
  probably  a  kind  of  national  sacred  song-book,  a  collection  of 
  songs  in  praise  of  the  heroes  of  Israel,  a  "book  of  golden 
  deeds,"  a  national  anthology.  We  have  only  two  specimens  from 
  the  book,  (1)  the  words  of  Joshua  which  he  spake  to  the  Lord  at 
  the  crisis  of  the  battle  of  Beth-horon  (Josh.  10:12,  13);  and 
  (2)  "the  Song  of  the  Bow,"  that  beautiful  and  touching  mournful 
  elegy  which  David  composed  on  the  occasion  of  the  death  of  Saul 
  and  Jonathan  (2  Sam.  1:18-27).
