Biiible – A Great Resource for the Word

Biiible - Bible search for the Google freakWho says that Christian web sites aren’t hip? (Well, actually, I used to say that.) But not any more. I’ve seen some great uses of technology to spread the word of God. There are a few online Bibles that have been great resources for studying or researching, but probably the greatest example is Biiible.com. (That’s ‘Bible’ with three (3) “i”s.)

Biiible‘s tagline is, “Bible Search for the Google Freak”. (I hope Google lawyers don’t come after these folks). Just like Google, it has a very simple, uncluttered homepage. But don’t let the simple interface fool you. You can use the search window to find a verse of scripture in one of sixteen different translations, including the King James Spanish translation. This is an excellent resource for those times when you know the verse, but can’t recall where it’s found. For instance, I was looking for the scripture in an earlier post where Paul advises that we should “pray without ceasing”. And so I entered that text in the search window and came up with not only the verse, but links to other verses with similar sentiments. The search results will tell you the number of instances that a word appears. For instance, I typed in the word “love” and it came up with 546 hits. However, keep in mind that it finds all words with that root. So, words like “beloved” are included. (I’m sure there’s a way to search for a word alone.)

Searching is not limited to a word or a verse. If you enter “Acts 10”, the site will bring up the 10th chapter of the Book of Acts. And even better, you can click on the “Compare Two Versions” link and see a side-by-side comparison of two translations.

The site also has a dictionary/lexicon for most generic terms as they apply to the scripture.

Best of all, under the “Downloads” section of the page are PDF and even Microsoft Word copies of all sixteen of their translations! I downloaded the MS Word copy of the King James version — it looks great. Beautifully formatted (although the files are understandably large in size. The King James versions in MS Word and PDF formatting are 6.6 and 7 megabytes, respectively. That’s a pretty big size for a document, so be patient if it takes a few seconds to open.) If you have a laptop but no Internet connection, these folks even have a JavaScript version of the website that you can search without being connected.

For all of the great information that’s available on Biiible.com, understand that there is no substitute for cuddling up with a well-thumbed, leather-bound copy of the scripture. However, for those times when we are doing research or studying in front of our computers, this is an excellent alternative.

God bless the good folks at Biiible.com. They’ve done a great job in making the Word of God available and accessible to everyone on the web. Check out the site — it’s a great resource.

    does anyone know what happened to biiible.com. the site is not responsive and hasn’t been for at least several weeks.

    I host copies all of biiible.com’s downloadable stuff (including biiible cafe and previously taken down NIV, NLT, NASB, AMP bibles) both for direct download ( http://www.yeshuaagapao.com/download.htm ) and ED2K (eMule/EDonkey; links on the same page). Might be trademark issues with Google this time.

    I had a site taken down b/c of trademarks, only to end up shared as an archive on eMule 🙂 CPP (publisher of MBTI) took it down after me giving up on compliance of request after request.

    Yes it’s a shame that Biiible isn’t there anymore!

    Really missing the excellent searche facility and verse for the day etc etc and all the different Bible versions too available.

    Hope it will come back again, or there’ll be some other similar Bible site.

    OH, yeah! ironically, tripdubya dot google was the only way to find this (what you are reading) information on http://www.biiible.com they even blocked http://www.waybackmachine.org downloads and the http://www.whois.sc will show the screenshot but you can’t link. so, thanks to someone else archiving it, i can at least use the offline search engine. http://www.biiible.com used to be my homepage, so you can imagine the frustration for not having it there. or anything comparable for that matter.
    i think “them” that conspire against the BIBLE look for some excuse to shut down an actual useful site. i can hardly wait till all the “good” people are dead (asleep in CHRIST), so that all “them” that sold us out will have to see that the evil one is a coward and will kill them off, and, oh, yes, GOD ALMIGHTY will then deal with “them” and their master… wHOO_HOOO!!!

    i only wish one could download a legible scan copy of ancient BIBLES so we can get a less comprimised translation of GOD’S HOLY WORD.

    maybe they can make a “www.biiible.net” or http://www.biiible.org site, but change that google font…
    but, then again, “them” would find another excuse to shut that down. isn’t it funny how “them” try to make the morons think “them” is the smart/master race, yet, it is not racist when “them” talk about “them” ruling the world…(yes, the jews killed JESUS and should brag about that instead of their self-inflicted holocust to purge the non-ashkanazi jews {i.e. bloodline jews})
    if all those {billions of} jews were in fact killed by hitler (a jew), where did all these survivors come from? a new adam and eve? hmmmmm…..almost reminds of of the old DacMonald’s signs… oh, yes, raycroc was an (ashkanazi) jew, too…

    Strategies something like this contains specific information regarding things
    to do in order to perfectly develop your character for a
    pro. Advancing skillsets happens in real-time and is based not on experience points but
    your own knowledge and equipment in the game.
    This results in a structure that ends up working like a subscription.

    I?m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that?s both equally educative and engaging, and
    let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across
    this in my search for something relating to this.
