This is an online bible that is very easy to use. It does not have loads of features though (e.g. commentaries and dictionaries).

bible gatewayIf you just want a simple online website to find and compare bible verses, then Bible Gateway may just be the site for you. It also has a few options when it comes to putting content or searches on your own website or blog.

Translations

It has all of the popular translation available (ESV, NASB, NIV, NKJV, NLT, KJV, TM) and a few more. It has various other languages, and also has some in audio format.

Commentaries and Dictionaries

The main weakness compared to some alternatives is that it does not really support dictionaries or commentaries that well. There is a couple of commentaries but these are held on another site. On some translations it does give the option of clicking to see the commentary on the passage, but for some reason it doesn’t happen with all translations. To search a dictionary you have to go to another page – you can’t just click on a word.

Website resources

The site comes with a couple of really good options to use with your website. Firstly, you can add a verse of the day link. This can either be as flash, or php which will allow you to change the way it looks more.

Also, you can link directly into their search engine of the bible. The easiest way is just to copy the HTML they provide. You may prefer to make it more customised though, and there is good instructions to help with the various options.

Ease of use etc.

Searching

The main way to search is simply by typing in the verse you want (e.g. Gen 1:1). However you can type in keywords or choose from a list of topics. If you got to the bible listing you can select books and chapters by clicking on the options with your mouse. This is not really an easy way of searching though (and is slightly hidden within the menus)

The feature I liked most was the handling of viewing multiple translation. You can have up to five and view them in a couple of different formats. Once you’ve chosen your translations you can easily swap them around and change verses.

Navigation

Navigation around the site is straightforward, and relatively intuitive.

Help

There is a clear help guide available.

Presentation

It won’t win any design awards, but it is clear and does not distract you from what you’re doing. All of which help to make it easy to use.

Summary

If you are doing some in-depth study this will not be for you. But if you want to quickly search for some verses then this is quick and easy to use.
