Bible Search search and compare multiple versions of the Bible

How to Search the Bible

  1. in the phrase or keywords textbox, type any of the following:
  2. choose a range from the dropdown box that probably currently says “Entire Bible”:
    • Entire Bible searches the entire Bible (i.e., Genesis through Revelation)
    • Old Testament searches the entire Old Testament (i.e., Genesis through Malachi)
    • New Testament searches the entire New Testament (i.e., Matthew through Revelation)
    • all other options search a common range that’s a subset of these or a specific book of the Bible

    NOTE: The larger the range, the longer it will take to search it, so choosing a smaller range is desired when applicable (e.g., if you know it’s in the New Testament, then choose New Testament for the range)

  3. using the remaining dropdown boxes, choose up to seven (7) translations
  4. click the Search button

° Due to copyrights, not all of these translations are available for viewing

It then searches your primary translation and these keywords, combining the results, ordering by relevance, displaying the entire verse (as opposed to a couple surrounding words, like most other concordances).

Then it pulls up the resultant verses in each of the subsidiary versions for instant parallel comparison.

Also, all the verses are linked to the Parallel Bible section, so that you can click the verse and see it with the context of its entire chapter!
