Link Day – Bible Software

Link Day!

So when I’m not using my good ‘ole Cambridge Wide-Margin Bible, what do I use on my computer?

There are soooo many Bible software programs out there, you can’t even shake a stick at them (I’m not sure where that colloquialism came from but I have heard it all my life. If you know the origins of that little saying, please let me know).

Here, I will share with you the two I use; one is a local, on-board software package and the other is web-based.

When I make a “link” in my posts to a verse or passage like THIS, I use “The Official King James Bible Online”. You can go right to the homepage HERE.

I will not say it is the best because there are many good Bible sites out there, such as…

However, I prefer this one.

Which is your favorite online Bible site?


 

The Bible software I use locally on my computer is called, “SwordSearcher” It can be found HERE.

I have used multiple Bible software packages through the years but this one, in my humble opinion, is the BEST!

I have used SwordSearcher for nearly 10 years and here are the things I love about it…

  • Powerful search functions, not only covering the Bible but many other included books such as…

Bible Texts:

  • Authorized King James Version
    Optionally displays words of Christ in red lettering.
  • King James Version with Strong’s Lexicon Links
    Each English word is linked to Hebrew and Greek words fromStrong’s Concordance.
  • King James 1611 Edition
    The 1611 edition retaining original spellings.
  • Other versions are included but of course the KJV is all you need.
  • Textus Receptus
    • Scrivener’s Greek New Testament with Stephens variants as footnotes.
    • Ben Chayyim Hebrew Old Testament.

Dictionaries & Encyclopedias:

Books:

Commentaries:

Topical Bible Guides:

  • Harmonies and Chronologies
  • Condensed Biblical Cyclopedia
    A. S. Johnson.
  • Thompson Chain Topics
    Possibly the most popular topical Bible ever published.
  • Nave’s Topical Bible
  • R.A. Torrey’s New Topical Textbook
    by Reuben Archer Torrey.
  • The Fundamentals
    Edited by R.A. Torrey. Various essays on Biblical doctrines.

Maps and Illustrations:

  • 30 Color Maps
    From J. L. Hurlbut’s Historical Geography of the Bible.
  • Over 100 Illustrations by Clarence Larkin
    Included with Dispensational Truth, Rightly Dividing the Word, andCommentaries on Daniel and Revelation, by Clarence Larkin.
  • 277 Maps and Illustrations from Easton’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary

  • Word Clouds
    By Bill Bonnell. A unique resource with linked word diagrams for each book and major division of the Bible.

Even more library material is available

  • When searching, multiple ways to search are built into the software. You can search individual books of the Bible, as well as the Old and New Testaments, or the entire Bible. All the works cited above are searchable too.
  • For posting on my blog or any writing I am doing, it is very easy to copy and paste straight from the program, and when pasting, the fonts conform to what you are already using in your writing program.

SwordSearcher is a great Bible study tool. I highly recommend it.

Of course, as much as I like it does not mean it is the only one out there. Which Bible software is your favorite? Let me know in the comments section.

Thanks for reading. Lord bless you and yours.


Amazon Stre

Anything you purchase from Amazon through the EKM site helps to fund EKM Ministries. It does not cost any more than shopping directly through Amazon and if you are a Prime member, nothing changes. It simply gives EKM Ministries a small “finders fee”.

You are not limited to what is on the EKM store site. If you want to purchase an electronic mouse trap, then by all means, purchase an electronic mouse trap.

Click the “Powered by Amazon” button in the top right bar and you will be taken to Amazon. Through here, EKM will still get credit.

Thank you so much for your support and remember to do your Amazon Christmas shopping through this EKM Amazon Store. I just wouldn’t recommend an electronic mouse trap as a gift.

Lord bless you and yours!
