Bible Nav : Reader


Bible Reader

Bible Reader
Bible Reader displays the Bible for reading and study. 

All pages within Bible Nav are literally a click or two away from the Reader.  For example, here is a separate display of two KJV verses —

Joh 3:16-17 :  16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 

Clicking ‘Joh 3:16-17’ at the beginning of the passage will display both verses together in the Reader, while clicking either verse number ‘16’ or ‘17’ will display just that verse in the Reader. 

Within the Reader itself, at the top and bottom of the page, ‘< Prev’ will display the previous verse or chapter within the Bible, while ‘Next >’ will display the next verse or chapter. 

The Bible version, or translation, of the chapter or verses being displayed is always noted at the bottom (along with links to easily switch to another version) —

Other Bible Reader links include —

For both chapter and verses, one of two links will appear that operates as a toggle with the other link —

When the Bible Reader is not displaying a full chapter, the following links are available —

When the Bible Reader is displaying a full chapter, the following link is available —

The narrator is Dan Wagner.  The original source for the recordings is located at Audio Scriptures, but the copies I use are from Audio Treasure.  One source I saw said the narration is “slow,” but I disagree.  I would call the narration “careful, accurate, and deliberate.”  No frills, just the Bible being read, plain and simple.  Rarely do I hear him dropping or changing a word.  And I love to hear his pronunciation of both the Hebrew names and the old English words (Thus saith the LORD!).  Thank you, Dan, for doing such a wonderful job with your labor of love. 

Although the listen link is shown for all Bible versions, at this time it is only available for KJV. 

For a few chapters, when the Bible Reader is displaying a full chapter, the following link is available —

Whenever any of the verses being displayed are part of a topic collection, a link to that topic is presented.  For example —

Whenever New Testament verses are displayed that quote or reference Old Testament verses, both NT and OT verses are listed.  For example —

The references will go in the opposite direction, too, from Old Testament to New Testament.  These references are provided courtesy of the WEB and WEM translators and have been applied to all the Bible versions. 

The Bible Reader provides several Study links to allow the displayed verse or chapter to be further researched on another Bible site.  The following Study links are offered, each tied to the chapter or verse being displayed —

Although the study links are shown for all Bible versions, at this time the connections all specify KJV.  You can switch to the version you want once you enter the external Bible site. 

Finally, at the bottom of the Bible Reader page, standard Bible Nav navigation links are listed.  However, features of two of the link groups are unique to the Bible Reader page —

Last Word

For believers at least, one of the most important activities they can do, probably not far behind praying to God, would be reading and studying the Bible.  It's as simple as that. 

2Ti 2:15 :  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
