Literal Word exists to promote the word of God and not much else. No ads. No articles. No distractions. Simply the Word. We believe that the Bible contains the most important information that anyone could ever come across and that accessing it should be as easy as possible.

This belief has driven every decision we've made designing Literal Word. The app is 100% free and functional even when you're offline. The NASB 1995, LSB, ESV, and KJV translations of the Bible were selected for faithfully utilizing a word-for-word instead of a thought-for-thought translation method. Each passage of the Bible is clean, customizable, and convenient to access, allowing the reader to focus exclusively on the God-breathed content. Word searches are simple but powerful, featuring a unique visual interface for organizing results with precision, and complete lexicons for original Hebrew and Greek words can be viewed with just a couple taps.

It really comes down to the fact that a straightforward approach to a Bible app maximizes attention to the word of God.

Absolutely wonderful! Thank you for such an incredible presentation of the Bible & such a simple, intuitive method of studying & moving through the Word. It's fast, efficient, clean & minimal, but deeply thorough with the Greek and Hebrew lexicons. One suggestion - your search function is wonderful & visual, but it would be helpful if our own notes could be indexed & accessed in the search. I have built a lrg collection and I use symbols to organize & categorize, but I can't search by them.

I can't get over that this is a STUDY Bible that's FREE, with no ads! I recommended it to a friend who needs big print, but I'm loving it too. It has: Hebrew and Greek lexicons, cross-references at the bottom when you select a verse, 5 colors of backgrounds, 6 colors of highlights, a personal notes area, and more! Plus you can either sign in, or never sign in: your choice! Somebody went to a lot of time & effort to create this beautiful app for us! Thank you!

Well, the app now has the zoomies. Nothing worse than reading a passage and the whole thing zooms in to almost just one word. You then have to manually zoom back out looking for that right font size. Ugggg... Old & fixed: It's a good app that removes the verses making reading easier. The only thing to watch out for is when you approach a new chapter be sure to tap on the last couple of sentences. There is often a whole lot more text hidden that you might not know about.
