so much study material all in one place ...... what a blessing !!
....in the beginning was TheWord .....what else does one need ?
I spend very little time in any other program ........TheWord has got it covered....
this software has literally replaced a plethora of printed reference books, dictionaries, lexicons and assorted Scripture translations on my desk.
What a great way to literally share The Word ....this will be passed on as a gift.
The NET Bible is a great translation for research. They have multiple translator notes throughout that give great insight into why a specific word was chosen. You will run into abbreviations, though, that are not explained anywhere, including in the info section for the Bible's module (such as (L&N 33.409) ), so you're on your own if you need to figure out what source they used for their reasoning. For most, this won't be a huge deal.
The translation also have contextual notes and study notes built in - more notes that most, if not any Bible module out there. If you turn off the notes (there can be many per chapter), it is a fairly smooth read as well. They've worked hard to have a combination of scholarly accuracy with explanation and readability. Well worth adding to your collection. I often find myself checking to see what the NET Bible has for various verses.
Note: Old Testament quotes are in bold by default and can not be turned off in theWord and the words of Jesus can not be made red, per the publisher's choice. There are no cross references with this translation, either (however, many references are included in the various footnotes, but by the way they are already in a popup, you can not hover over them to read the text of the reference). The Strong's numbers are quite beneficial due to the scholarly goals of this translation.
Again, a unique, accurate, and worthy translation to have. While the NET Bible is free online, having it in theWord is great for easy access and for those of us who do not have constant internet.
I can clear off of my desk at least fifeteen scriptural dictionaries, lexicons, bible translations etc.,
What an outstanding addition to my study materials ...... not truly an addition, it's actually a replacement.
Thankfuk that theWord has some of AMG Publishers titles
I have read the NASB since I became a Christian in 1972. When the 2020 update came out I bought it right away. I love the way it reads and makes scripture clear. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good study Bible or one that reads easily.
It’s a literal turnkey collection in a snazzy, beautiful package. Most importantly though you give your support to this great resource!
This Software is exellent! It s awesome but also easy. I use it since the very first versions for many years now. Thank you very much!!!
Amp is a fine extra compare translation
Only certain codes work
I am using The Word for years now, with the 1953 Afrikaans Bible. My computer got stolen, so I re-installed it, the The Word crashed or became corrupted, and whwn I re-installed the program, the process did not recognize me as a owner or subscriber to the 1953 Afrikaans Bible. I asked my IT boffin to help me with this. Did he have to pay again? I would like to know, please.
I really use The Word frequently every day. Especially it's search function.
When clicking on a preposition in a Greek Bible with Lemmas the information displayed in the book view is extremely helpful in translating as I prepare a sermon for a message.

Perhaps in the future depending on sales we may have a version with it but no guarantees.
The BHS5+ will not have an apparatus.
theWord.net, theWordbooks.com and theWord community is committed to producing high quality, useful products for Christian laymen and those in the ministry.
I certainly would. I actually use 3 different bible programs but this one is front and center. It takes a little digging to get out of it what you want it to do for you…. but when you figure it out….. IT IS AMAZING!!! You probably never will take advantage or even know ALL the features!!!! I guess the best thing for me is how the different windows work together. You can have them all attached and resize your most used ones…….. or they can all be separate and positioned on your desktop for your best functionality. For multiple monitors….this is a dream. Most of the basic modules that you would pay for in other programs are free for the taking in theWord. There are also paid modules that you can get as you see fit at your study level. If you are becoming a student (not just a reader) of the WORD…. This is a wonderful tool to have. Don’t get over whelmed with it all….. just find out how to do what you want to do at the level you are and then find the features and how to use them as you need them. THANK YOU THANK YOU for theWORD Bible Software.

I used it a lot about 7-5 years back and will use it again in the future for sure. It’s very wonderful and useful for analyzing any language. It’s an amazing free software.
Dear TheWord team,
I really want to say thank you. With this thanksgiving, I stand before our Lord Jesus Christ and praise his holy and glorious name for giving you such gifts. I have been blessed abundantly with this software. There is no better software for me! I wish you from the heart of God’s rich blessings, strength, patience and love that you can continue to work as the Lord uses you!
Be blessed in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
Greetings from Germany
Thank you for The Word. I discovered this many years ago while working out of state in West Virginia. It has lead so many of those who divinely crossed my path to be able to read and understand The Bible and many have accepted The Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. God bless all you and your families as we strive to bring The Good News of Jesus into a lost and dying world. R. Rice
I am very grateful to God for having placed in Costas Stergiou’s mind the idea of creating a free program of such excellent quality and so useful for my personal life and for my work in the Lord’s work. God bless you dear brother! A big hug from Colombia.

Estou muito feliz de poder usar este aplicativo extremamente útil à obra de Deus. Sei que vai me ajudar muito e aos da comunidade da qual faço parte.
Alain John da Costa Lemos
There is no better Bible commentary than this. I recommend it. If I had money I would donate you for the glory of the Lord. Remain blessed. Love from Rwanda.
Great lay out, and easy to use site!
This is my go-to Bible study software… I write books with it and diagram my Bible. Just a lovely piece of art. Have taught others how to use it over in Europe. I have other high-end Bible software but it´s just a big clunky library. However, TheWord is different. The cost I´m sure was high to make this software, but the price to get it…you can´t beat it! Thanks Costas!
[Robert from Ghana, God richly the developers of this software. it has been a backbone in my ministry as a gospel minister. great job done! never give up for God will reward you with this work to support spreading of the gospel, Matt 28:19-20 ]
This is the best if not one of the best bible softwares i”ve used so far. Its easy to download plus all its modules. I recommend it to any bible lover. I love it.
I am so grateful to God for the people behind theWord. Amazingly helps me in my biblical studies. God Bless this resource for it is really a great blessing to us who seriously desiring to have a deep understanding of the scriptures.
Wished I had a lot of money to donate as I get as much or more from your program than all the other free ones I have and even the ones I own that I have through help from others. I can put my Bible reading calendar in one of the modules and keep them updated by deleting or adding so easy.
Believe me…this is the best Bible software ever. I have used it for several years and find it is better for me than the purchased one…Never stop your great WORK for our LORD.
…Your Fellow Servant of Christ Jesus
Eu do Brasil (Amazonas), estou aqui para agradecer a Deus e a vocês da theWord por está maravilhosa ideia, eu peço a Deus que multiplique mil vezes todas as bênçãos que tem recaído sobre vocês, e peço em nome de JESUS nome sobre todo nome amém
I am from South Africa (Groblersdal), and I would like to extend my astronomical gratitude to “the word” team for their remarkable job on this software let alone making it free for all to access. This is a true act of serving God. I have used this software for almost 4 years and I’m thoroughly impressed by the effort you have put in it. May God continue to bless you in all your future developments.
This software is a God-send for any Bible loving servant of the Lord. I have been blessed daily as I have found the best resources I could ever want. Thank you for your service to the Lord in making this program available.

I have used The Word from the plug in key. Works wonderfully and has been a complete blessing to me. It runs independent of the internet allowing a person without those services to have access to the many bibles and resources available.
TheWord has proved to be a truly invaluable resource in my exhaustive efforts in researching, writing, editing and refining several technical documents comparing various modern Bible versions and their underlying koine Greek New Testament manuscripts and their related text-types. TheWord’s rich feature set, elegant and intuitive user interface, customizability and modularity are just a sampling of the lush advantages that put this superb package on par with professional Bible software literally costing hundreds of dollars. Kudos go to the earnest Christian developer for his God-inspired efforts in producing such a phenomenal program!
