Personal foreword

This application relies greatly on the freely available Lexham English Bible for which my thanks goes to Logos Bible Software. A lot of bible translations have extremely restricted licenses making distribution of the bible either illegal or extremely hard. If you are interested in reading more about this I would suggest the following page.

Lexham English Bible License

You can give away the Lexham English Bible, but you can't sell it on its own. If the LEB comprises less than 25% of the content of a larger work, you can sell it as part of that work.

If you give away the LEB for use with a commercial product, or sell a work containing more than 1,000 verses from the LEB, you must annually report the number of units sold, distributed, and/or downloaded.

You must always attribute quotations of the LEB.

If you quote less than 100 verses of the LEB in a single work you can attribute it by simply adding (LEB) after the quotation. Longer quotations, or use of 100 or more verses in a single work, must be accompanied by the following statement:

Scripture quotations marked (LEB) are from the Lexham English Bible. Copyright 2012 Logos Bible Software. Lexham is a registered trademark of Logos Bible Software.

In electronic use, link "LEB" and "Lexham English Bible" to, and "Logos Bible Software" to If all quotations are unmarked and from the LEB, you may remove "marked (LEB) are" from the statement.

In support of non-English Bible translation, non-profit organizations may use 50% as the maximum portion the LEB may comprise of a work offered for sale. (This specifically allows the creation and commercial sale of diglot Bibles.)

Tips & Tricks

Quickly access and find verses

The best part of this application is its search functionality. If you type in a verse reference and hit enter it will automatically go to that verse, but you can also search based on theme or specific words if you don't know where it is written exactly. And it even works without an internet connection.

Another way to quickly find the passage you're looking for is long-tapping (or right clicking) on a bible book to access its list of pericopes. And in case you didn't know, pericopes are those little titles in between sections.

Note: For incomprehensible reasons (it has something to do with storage) on some mobile devices the search database can not be generated and it will retry on every run. In that case you might try running the application through your mobile chrome browser by browsing to If it works add it to your homescreen through the menu to get a similar experience as the Google Play store one.

Find the settings panel

If you scroll down to the bottom of the book list there is a link to the setting menu. Or just press here for a shortcut.

Use it on your computer too

You can access the entire application on as well. This both works on mobile devices and on your desktop, however it is limited to Chrome and Opera (sorry for that, it kinda works in some other browsers as well, but it's not supported).

Best part of using it on your computer: Offline & OpenSearch support. What does that mean? Start typing "" in your address bar, as soon as it appears hit the [tab] key. Next you type in for example a verse reference, hit enter, and it will automatically go to that verse or search for your input. And best part: It even works without an internet connection.

Enable the Material Design/Android 5 look

In the settings panel you can enable the material design look even on Android 4.

  •      On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many miracles in your name?’ And then I will say to them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you who practice lawlessness!’
