Robert Young (1822-1888) was a Scottish publisher who was self-taught and proficient in various ancient languages. He had his own published works, the most well known being a Bible translation commonly referred to as Young's Literal Translation.

He was born in Edinburgh and eventually served an apprenticeship in printing and simultaneously taught himself various oriental languages. He eventually joined the Free Church, and in 1847 he started his own business of printing and selling books, particularly of works related to Old Testament studies.

As well as his Bible translation, his other major works include the Analytical Concordance to the Bible (for the King James Version) and Concise Commentary on the Holy Bible.
