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".

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.

      • Any plans to add NLT to English Versions?

        Our church primarily uses NLT when we share verses digitally. Do you have any plans to add NLT to the Bible Search API English versions?

          • verses classified by subject

            To thoroughly study a Bible topic would be great to have (API) the verses by theme. There is a very good book that classifies each verse as a hierarchical list of topics. http://www.mylogoslibrary.com/resource.php?resource=LLS:DICCBBLCOSMANSER

            • option to choose Highlighter parsing delimiters with RegEx

              The parsing using "Highlighter - beta" is skipping some verses because the program thinks a number immediately following the semi-colon belongs to the previous chapter, when in actuality it signifies a book in a series (e.g. 2 John). Here is an example of two text references where this is a problem: "1 John 4:19; 2 Corinthians 5:14, 15." The program parses first reference correctly; however, it creates the next reference as "1 John 4:2," then fails to discover a book named Corinthians.
              Please fix this, or let me insert my own regular expression.

              • Search by book or group of books

                Just as the search can be narrowed to only certain translations of the Bible, it would be good to choose specific books (Genesis, etc.) or groups of books (Gospels, Pentateuch, Letters, Prophets, Old Testament, New Testament, Deutero, etc.)

                                          I am interested in Portuguese and in French
                                          How can I contribute to the project so it would happen?
                                          I have a few ideas but I need contact with the developer
                                          Thank you!
