Studying the Bible shouldn’t be hard. NIV Bible by Olive Tree equips you with easy-to-use Bible study tools and resources so you can stop skimming Scripture and get answers—for free.
Here are 4 ways you’ll be set-up for studying God’s Word:
1) NO WIFI
That’s right, you don’t need a WiFi connection to access your Bible, audio Bible, or any other Bible study tools. You could be in the middle of the Amazon or on top of Mt. Everest. If your phone is working, so is your offline Bible app.
2) MORE THAN JUST A BIBLE
God has been speaking to His people, through His people, for thousands of years… and that takes some research to understand! This is why we provide 1000s of resources to help you go deeper into God’s Word—because studying the Holy Bible shouldn’t be hard.
And when we say “resources,” we mean:
-DAILY READING PLANS
-CHRISTIAN AUDIO BOOKS
-GREEK & HEBREW TOOLS
-AND SO MUCH MORE
3) TECH + DESIGN
Not only do we implement unique features into our app, but we do it with style. Our favorite is the split-screen window: The Study Center. You can use the Resource Guide tab to access any of the resources available in our app and read them right alongside the Bible of your choice. It even does all the hard work of tracking with you, verse by verse. Studying the Bible just became the easiest it has ever been.
4) CUSTOMIZE YOUR BIBLE
Want more highlighter options? That’s fine!
Pick your own color, thickness, and change it to underline instead.
Have trouble reading small print? Increase the font size!
Reading at night? Change the theme to be easier on your eyes.
Want to listen safely while you drive? Turn on drive mode!
You can save your favorite passages, drop a book ribbon, create a note, add tags, and sign up to receive a daily Bible verse. Best part? Your highlights, notes, and resources sync between all your devices.
If you’re wondering about our different English translations, this app comes with NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV and more. Speak a different language? No problem! We have Bibles in Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, French, and others.
We also have other popular translations available for in-app purchase!
Here are a few:
-The Message (MSG)

Ratings and Reviews
Steven M. Spencer
Simply a blessing! Been using now for four years. I preach at a prison four days a week, then I take the same man out and we work together. And this app is my main tool. It enables me to save my scriptures that my pastor teaches on from sermons at my church and refreshes me as I put together sermons for Monday through Thursday.
I like the search capability when I am building sermons as well. I hang out with many people that are un-churched and non-scriptural if you will, So this thing is extremely handy. That doesn’t sound very technical because when you’re out in the street, life is not technical, It is spiritual. I would like for all the people involved in this project to know that you are blessing many many folks especially myself, and all the people whose lives I am blessed to be able to touch. I would like to thank you very very much and please continue your work in Jesus name.
Outstanding tool to support your walk with God
I have been using the Olive Tree app for several years now and find it to be an essential tool in my daily Bible studies. I love the ability to keep my notes directly in the app, quickly jump to relevant references and sync the Bible reading with commentary books. I also have used the daily reading feature to walk me through reading the Bible end to end and it makes it so easy to keep track of your progress. The library is extensive as well, and I’ve found myself purchasing a lot more great books than I thought I would when I first started.
Highly recommend this app for anyone looking to strengthen their relationship with God!
Perfect Bible App
I have been using this app extensively for years. I can make notations complete with tags, highlight text, and easily copy text to a document for other uses. Instead of sitting with a number of resources all around me, everything I need is here at my fingertips. With the Complete Word Study Bible I can see the meanings of words in the original text. The Resource Center features are great for more in-depth study, and the number of resources, including books by authors such as Francis Chan, available allows the accumulation of quite a library. It has all my resources keyed to the text I am currently reading. I can even have a second version (I have several) displayed for a parallel Bible experience.
