Bible Vocab+ is a simple and fun way to learn vocabulary from the Greek New Testament and the Hebrew Old Testament. Watch our online tutorial here:

Professor Robert Plummer (co-author of Going Deeper with New Testament Greek) said about the app: 'Who could imagine that a Greek New Testament vocabulary app with this much power and flexibility even existed? I'm amazed at the intuitive design and ability to customize vocabulary acquisition to particular sections of text. I'm confident that this vocabulary app will help thousands of pastors and students read the Greek New Testament with greater fluency, confidence, and understanding. I enthusiastically endorse it.'

* Vocab Lists *
You can choose vocab lists from any passage in the Bible or from the following leading Greek and Hebrew textbooks:
* Fuller & Choi, Invitation to Biblical Hebrew
* Garrett & DeRouchie, A Modern Grammar for Biblical Hebrew
* Hackett, A Basic Introduction to Biblical Hebrew
* Pratico & Van Pelt. Basics of Biblical Hebrew (eds. 2 & 3)
* Ross, Introducing Biblical Hebrew, Baker Academic
* Seow, A Grammar for Biblical Hebrew
* Baugh, A New Testament Greek Primer
* Decker, Reading Koine Greek, Baker Academic
* Duff, The Elements of New Testament Greek
* Kostenberger, Merkle, & Plummer. Going Deeper with New Testament Greek
* Merkle & Plummer, Beginning with New Testament Greek
* Mounce, Basics of Biblical Greek
* Rollinson, Online Greek Textbook

NB. The vocab items may occasionally be in a different form to how they appear in the textbook.

* Spaced Repetition *
The smarter way to learn vocab. This allows you to test yourself on items at set intervals which increase the more times that record that know it correctly. Just tap on the spaced repetition button (the arrow button in the right corner) and it will tell you the words you need to study next.

* Reading Mode *
Use the power of spaced repetition to get better at reading whole verses in the Bible. If you've learned enough vocab in Spaced Repetition mode to cover whole verses, Reading Mode will introduce these verses to you, first with the parsing, dictionary form and glosses and thereafter you will need to read it just the original language. These verses will be shown to you at intervals which increase the more familiar you are with each verse.

* Slideshow Modes *
Vocab Mode: where you see the words in their dictionary form
Parsing Mode: where you see the words in the way they appear in the text and you are tested on their grammatical form.
Verses Mode: see whole verses as well as parsing, dictionary forms, and glosses.

* Greek Audio *
Dr. George Athas from Moore College in Sydney has recorded the audio for all the words in the Greek New Testament using a restored koine pronunciation system. You can try the audio for the 100 most frequently occurring used words for free and if you like it you can pay to download more.

* Data Sources *
You can choose between four Greek Testament texts: SBL, Westcott-Hort, Tischendorf, and Byzantine. The OT text is based on the Westminster Leningrad Codex, as provided by Open Scriptures. The Greek Lexicons are:
* Dodson (2010) -
* Mounce Concise Greek-English Lexicon (© 1993. William Mounce. All Rights Reserved -
The Hebrew/Aramaic Lexicon is derived chiefly from the Brown-Driver-Briggs, as provided by Open Scriptures.
You can also use the glosses from the available textbooks.

Outstanding! The best app for Bible vocabulary

Brilliant app, I love the way it keeps track of the words you need to review and handles the intervals of repetition. It’s great that there are multiple lexicons to choose from. Being able to select a passage range and word frequency to review is great too.

One add on that would be great is Septuagint vocab. It could even be a paid upgrade for those who want it. You could also add a Septuagint lexicon.

Thanks so much to the developer!

Fantastic app for seminarians!

I use this for my second-year language classes. The professor assigns a passage to translate, then I add it to the app and memorize the vocab I don't already know. This app makes my life so much easier. Only one complaint: the review intervals are a touch too frequent for my taste, which can be frustrating when words I know keep popping up.

Great potential but…

This app has tons of potential. My issues are in the fact that mounce basics of grammar has not been updated to 4th edition. This means there are some words missing in each chapter. There is no way to add words or create your own custom list. This forced me to use Anki app instead though I would prefer to use this app. It’s simple and good at what it does. Biggest draw back is you can’t create your own list or add to current list of words.
