Search and Read the Bible
Can’t find a Bible passage? Trying to find a verse but you
can’t remember exactly how it’s worded? Whether you’re new to the Bible or
know it well, use Bible Gateway every day to find what you're looking for in Scripture.
To search for a Bible topic, a keyword or phrase, or a specific verse or passage, simply type
what you’re looking for in the search box above and press or tap “enter”
on your keyboard. You’ll immediately be taken to the search results page that shows
all the places in the Bible where your topic, keyword, or phrase appear, or the specific
Bible verse or passage text you requested. The default Bible translation is the New
International Version (NIV), but if you prefer a different version, click or tap the
dropdown menu next to the Bible reference and make your selection.

One of our most popular features is the ability to compare Bible passages in different
versions side-by-side to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of the passage. To
activate this function, click or tap the double document circle above and to the left of the
Bible book reference on the search results page.
