Bible Search

How can we improve Bibles.org?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. I would like the new expected CSB version added to the API

    My church is a part of the Acts29 network and we are a growing inner city church. They recently informed everyone that they(church) were moving the new CSB version (closely associated with HCSB). They are transitioning because the reading level in many of the cities where they are planting are really low and the CSB is said to be theologically sound but at a 6-grade reading level. It would be great if this could be added to the BibleSearch API so we can use to further the gospel in our city.

    Thank you for any information you can give us…

      • Please add the 1984 NIV bible to your API.

        It would be really good to see the 1984 NIV version in your API.

              • Please add RVV11 (Revised Vietnamese Version Bible)

                Please add this version to the API. It's a popular version in Vietnam.

                Thank a lot!

                  • Would like to have Chinese Versions (Traditional and Simplified Chinese) available through API

                    Living in Taiwan and working with Chinese speakers, with mission programs going out to China, including Bible studies, it would be great to offer Chinese bible versions incorporated in an online tool we are developing to support the study of the Bible.

                      • Add Swedish Bible "Folkbibeln"

                        The Swedish bible Folkbibeln (SFB) is free to use for non-commercial usage and would be a great addition. You can download an XML of the Bible from their website (http://www.folkbibeln.it/arkiv/SFB_2015_Open_Song_v2.xml) and it would also be great if it was available through the API - especially since no other Swedish Bible is available that way.

                                          The API limits to 5000 queries/day. Current usage of the month should be available to the developer.
