Many early Christians were only able to experience portions of the Bible. One person would read aloud to a group, sharing passages from a handwritten copy of the text.
Today our smartphones give us hundreds of complete Bibles in our pockets. And the audio versions of many of these can actually “read” to us from God’s inspired Word!
The Bible App helps you engage more with Scripture, no matter what you’re doing: exercising, getting ready for work, on your commute…even reading along.1
Customize your listening experience.
|Standard play, rewind, and fast forward controls.|

Inside the Bible App, when you see a speaker icon in the menu above the Bible text, tap it, then tap Play. If you don’t see a speaker icon above the Bible version you’re reading…
Tap the version abbreviation at the top of the app. Select any version with a speaker icon next to it. When you return to the Bible reader, tap the speaker icon.
Note: Before you try any Bible App feature for the first time, it’s always a good idea to ensure that you have the most up-to-date version at bible.com/app.
