Scripture Study Bible

Focused Reading

Your digital Bible. A simple way to read and to study the Bible on modern Windows 11 devices, focusing on the Authorized Version (King James Version). Switch on Strong's numbering to check the meaning and usage of words in the original Hebrew and Greek. Search for words, phrases and combinations in English or by Strong's number - or mix both in the same search. Build a list of bookmarks of references to study a theme or to come back to later and synchronize them between all of your devices. Store your own notes with each verse. Scroll naturally from side to side to keep reading across chapter boundaries. Free from obvious religious symbols, and no background music or adornments.

Why This App (or Why Not)?

This app was written purely as a means to read the Bible easily on modern Windows devices, and to take and store notes and thoughts.

This app isn't a comprehensive suite of translations, commentaries and lexicons. The app tries to avoid being accidentally biased against what the Bible truely teaches. Most large traditional commentaries are avoided to reduce that risk.
