There’s nothing quite like the Dwell Bible app.
Search & Favorite Scripture
If you’re like us, you’re probably finding new and enriching passages of scripture all the time that deepen your connection with God. When you discover new passages like these, Dwell makes it simple to bookmark them as favorites so that you can easily return to them day after day. Dwell also gives you the tools to not only listen to scripture, but to memorize and meditate on it too.
Browse & Discover Scripture
Dwell also has been called "the Spotify of Scripture" because of how easy (and delightful!) it is to explore the Bible. Browse popular Bible verses or curated playlists that include select verses by theme. Use our Listening Plans to help you cultivate a habit of seeking God in Scripture every day. Or take the traditional approach: pick your favorite book and dive in!
Experience Scripture Afresh

Fixed in 2020.11:
This release is entirely focused on the issue of loading content. We've hunted down and fixed two major contributors to this bug, and our testing (and our beta users' testing) indicate we've finally solved the problem.
In addition, this release introduces a "Low Bandwidth Mode" under our debug settings, which tells the app to be less aggressive with its prefetching.
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Innovative, Quality App
The Narrators are very good, they don’t over-do the reading, and they are smooth, consistent, and clear. The Dwell mode (repeating a chapter, book, or playlist) is probably my favorite feature as it allows you to really focus on a particular portion of Scripture for study, contemplation, or memorization. The pre-set playlists also set this app apart, as there are selections with messianic Psalms, or with only Psalms written by David, or with a compilation of Jesus’ parables. I don’t know if any other apps that offer these features, or that execute it so well. I also enjoy the yearly reading plan options with the choice of going straight through the Bible (Genesis through Revelation), or a mixture of Old and New Testament readings, and also the option of doing a seven day a week or a five day a week plan. All in all, I rate this app five stars.
One suggestion that I have is that the developers made a reader option with all of the readers together almost like a dramatized version, but just switch to the female voice when a woman is speaking and switching between the male narrators during conversion. This would require no extra recording, only re-editing and re-arranging when certain voices are heard. This feature in other apps helps me to follow historical stories more easily and it holds my attention better than the traditional single-reader style.
Thankful for Dwell!
Hello! I am on day 2 into listening to Dwell and wanted to share with you what an incredible blessing it has been! First of all, I am the owner of a podcast called Oh Hey Truth, to equip women to know the Word and know how to know it so that they can live it out in their lives! It’s target is 18-28 year olds. We heard about Dwell from several listeners and I finally decided to try it. IT IS AMAZING! Seriously. There was a need and y’all met it. I’m so grateful to have it and now to share it with our listeners.
My second reason is that I have a very painful and all consuming disability that leaves me bed-ridden a lot. I listen to a lot of worship music and try other bible reading apps, but with the pain it was like fingernails on a chalkboard, you know. I really struggled the last 24 hours to get the pain under control with even the strongest of meds. Now, Dwell did not take my pain away BUT it was easy for me to listen to and was so soothing. The music and Rosie’s voice calmed my mind and my spirit. I am so grateful. I may sound like a quack, but I am not. I am just so so grateful that the Lord met me through your app. THANK YOU!
Dwell is the app I never knew I needed!
I read my Bible daily, but this app. I’ve LOVED being able to listed to my bible aloud. There are people in the Bible whose stories I’ve never much thought about, but hearing their stories read aloud has brought me to tears. Hearing the Bible was the only way the Hebrews and early Christian Church were exposed to the Bible. This app brings a little bit of that back to us and allows us to listen as they would have.
This app has four voices to choose from. The graphics are beautiful. They have plans and playlists if you don’t know where to start. They have made long listen stories and passages like “Abraham’s Story” “psalm 119” and others you can choose to listen to if you find a block of time and can listen. They also have short listen passages for the time crunch. And if you like listening from start to finish, they have a library with every book of the New Testament and they are actively working on finishing up the Old Testament (currently there are 7 books: genesis, exodus, 1,2 Samuel, psalms, proverbs and Ecclesiastes).
This app is so well done and I am thrilled with how it’s turned out!
