Can Greek open up the Bible for you? Most people don't believe they can benefit from the original Greek of a Bible verse. But that was before Spectrum Bible.

The Bible versions are presented in parallel columns. The columns are arranged from most literal to most paraphrased translation. The original language version occupies the very most literal column. The color of the column indicates what kind of translation it is so you can tell what a version is good at without having to research it:

- word-for-word (blues/purples)
- phrase-for-phrase (translational greens)
- thought-for-thought (earth tones)

Pinch horizontally to change the number of visible columns, pinch vertically to change the font size.
