BibleCrawler is a powerful tool for Biblical analysis in the palm of your hand.
BibleCrawler displays Biblical texts in original languages (fully pointed Hebrew and accented Greek) with linked translations in English.
To use Biblecrawler, type in a Bible verse or verse range into the "Verses" box. For example, type type Rev 1:1-5. You can use the full name of a biblical book, or any of the commonly recognised abbreviations. BibleCrawler expects either a colon or a full stop after a chapter number, if there is going to be a verse or verse range following. The hyphen (minus sign) must be used between the start verse and end verse in a range. Don't worry - if BibleCrawler can't understand your verse reference, a popup box will explain this. Here are examples of valid and invalid verse references
Gen 5:1- (missing an end verse number)
Gen 5:6; Gen 6:1
The underlying Hebrew and Greek texts are morphologically analysed, and searches can be based on this data. Searches can also based on an English word or phrase.
When you click on a word in an English translation, it will highlight the corresponding Hebrew or Greek word.
When you click on a Greek or Hebrew word, it will bring up a popup box showing the definition and root word (lemma). This popup has a 'More' button, which will display a full page of information about this word, summarising the way the word is used in the Scriptures. Clicking a down-arrow on this page will display all instances of the word.
BibleCrawler comes with two English-language bible translations - the BSB and LEB. BSB is an abbreviation for the Berean Study Bible version. LEB is an abbreviation for the Lexham English Bible. BibleCrawler defaults to the LEB. You can change the default Bible on the Settings page. On the same page, you can also nominate other Bibles to display in parallel with the primary bible (the first bible in the list). Word/phrase seaching from the main page of BibleCrawler is always on the primary Bible.
Each new action in BibleCrawler opens up a new tab. The tabs are listed in blue at the bottom of the page. You can close a tab when you are finished with it by clicking on the blue "close" button. You can return to the start page at any time by clicking on the "Start" tab.
