Parallel Bible - the main intent of the Parallel Bible is to enable the use of the Bible as a study tool for learning another language. However, it can be used for text comparison between two different translations in the same language.

Highlight Variations shades words that are different between translations in different colors. To turn it off, uncheck the box located at the bottom of the Parallel Bible Search form before you submit a query.

Include Study Resources automatically lists, in the right column of the query results page, all resource entries matching your query. To turn it off, uncheck the box located at the bottom of the Parallel Bible Search form before you submit a query.

Find exact chapters and/or verses by typing the book, chapter, and/or verse in the box and selecting the Bible version desired from the drop-down box. (When searching by chapter and verse, the default setting automatically includes hyperlinks to all resources listed under that verse. To turn off these references, uncheck the box next to "Include Resources". This will display the chapter in a more reading friendly format.)

Example: John 3:16 for a verse or John 3 for the entire chapter.

Find a verse spread by using hyphens and commas between the verse numbers.

Example: John 3:15-17 or John 3:15,16,17,18

Find multiple verses from different chapters or books by using commas between the verse numbers.

Example:Matthew 1:4, Genesis 2:1, John 3:15-18

Find verses containing an exact phrase by enclosing it in quotation marks.

Example:"for God so loved the world"

Find verses containing two or three words by adding AND (in capital letters) between the words.

Example: Christ AND mercy

Find verses with either of two words by adding OR (in capital letters) between the words.

Example: mercy OR grace

Find verses with one word but not another word by adding NOT (in capital letters) between the words.

Example: holy NOT spirit

Additional Notes:
You can search for up to three words or phrases with the modifiers AND, OR, NOT. However, you cannot use AND after using OR or NOT. To refine your results when searching for multiple words, click "Search within results" AFTER performing a search and search for additional words or phrases.

"There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between. Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, "JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS." Therefore many of the Jews read this inscription, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Latin and in Greek." - John 19:18-20
