What’s New

Version 1.2.0

This version makes available a new visual way to connect the English words of each Bible with the corresponding Greek or Hebrew words. This new tool is called WAVELinks to the Greek/Hebrew and is available from the In-app Store by the Bible book. You can select a phrase of interest in a Bible book that has WAVELinks (or one of the three sample verses from the book) and get a literal translation and see how each English Bible translates the phrase. Then you can look into the Original and find the contribution of each Greek or Hebrew word to the phrase's literal translation. The tool works by touch. You just touch a word of interest and its phrase is highlighted in all of the parallel columns. Once you find the word of interest you can launch a word search with the touch of a button to conduct your very own 60 second Greek or Hebrew word study. All of this is made usable for people that do not know anything about Greek or Hebrew.

I use it every morning. It has never crashed once, until the update. When I search Psalms it crashes to home. Paralleling Old and New Testaments Original text, KJV, and Message. Using iPad Pro 9.7 iOS 10.3.3 and NOT going to iOS 11 for performance throttling and sly manipulation to upgrade my iPad. (Reinstalled and seems to be working properly now) Thanks to the developers for a quick response ! You have a great app and should be proud.

Clever UI

I have a plethora of bibles on my iPhone/iPad, but this is by far my favorite. I love to be able to simply swipe between versions and the icing on the cake is the option to see the original text. I'm no scholar, which is why I like the option to simply tap the Greek or Hebrew word and up pops a screen to give varying translations as well as an option to search for other places in scripture for the same word. Great bible app.

Love this app!

I discovered this app around 5 years ago. It is so easy to change books chapters snd verses and turn it sideways and you can read several versions to compare the words differentiation. It is my favorite of numerous ones I have tried 🙏❤️
