Brand New from Joyce Meyer and YouVersion: Promises for Your Everyday Life – a Daily Devotional

Joyce Meyer and the Bible App™
Today we’re thrilled to announce that YouVersion has teamed up with Joyce Meyer, internationally renowned Bible teacher and New York Times Bestselling author, to bring you a very special, exclusive reading plan from Joyce Meyer Ministries, called Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life – a Daily Devotional.

Joyce’s desire to make practical, biblical teaching accessible to people in all walks of life is a natural match for YouVersion’s simple mission: To make it easy for as many people as possible to freely connect with the Bible, no matter where they live.

The exclusive, 365-day Promises for Your Everyday Life plan is available right now, only from the Plans section inside the Bible App™ and from YouVersion.com’s Reading plans page. Each practical, inspirational message is designed to be completed in about 10 minutes, to help you make the most of your time in God’s Word every day. And all you’ll need to get started is the Bible App and a free YouVersion account.

Joyce Meyer Ministries provides practical, biblical teaching about subjects relevant to everyday life. She has authored 90 books, and her Enjoying Everyday Life® TV and radio programs are broadcast worldwide, sharing biblically based, inspirational messages that help people discover true fulfillment and joy. We’re so grateful that Joyce has chosen to make this exceptional daily resource available exclusively to our YouVersion community.

With Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life – a Daily Devotional, YouVersion now offers almost 200 reading plans in 10 languages for you to choose from. And with 160 Bible versions in 51 languages, and more than 30 million installs so far, YouVersion.com and the Bible App truly have something for everyone.

Now in Dutch: The Entire YouVersion Experience

De Bijbel App icoon in het NederlandsNow, for the first time, everything that YouVersion has to offer—the interfaces at YouVersion.com and in the Bible App™, technical support, communication, of course Bibles, and so much more—are all available completely in Dutch. While we’ve offered a Dutch language option at YouVersion.com for some time, the website is just one small piece of the YouVersion world.

Dutch represents our tenth complete language launch. The first was English, followed by Norwegian, Spanish, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Russian, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, and most recently, German. And today, we’re excited to share with you many of the ways that you can now engage with the YouVersion community—entirely in Dutch:

  • Menus, Buttons and Controls in Dutch. Thanks to our world-changing community of YouVersion volunteers, you can now experience the entire YouVersion user interface in Dutch, directly on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, or BlackBerry device. Simply set your default language to Dutch.
  • Communication in Dutch. At the top right of our blog’s English version, one of the alternate languages you can select is Nederlands. Whether you start there or simply jump straight to the Dutch version, you’ll find blog posts relevant to you, written in Dutch. You can also connect with us in Dutch on Facebook or Twitter, or email us a question in Dutch. And we’ll get back to you—in Dutch! How do we do it? We couldn’t… except that amazing Dutch-speaking YouVersion volunteers are passionately devoted to assisting you in your own language.
  • Dutch Technical Support. If you have any questions about YouVersion.com or about the Bible App, try visiting our all-new Tech Support site, also available completely in Dutch. And even if you don’t find what you’re looking for there, send us your question in Dutch, and Dutch-speaking volunteers trained in YouVersion support will gladly get back to you.

Your story is an important part of YouVersion’s story. If you’d like to share how YouVersion has helped you connect with the Bible, please come tell us on Facebook and Twitter. And if you have friends whose heart language is Dutch, please direct them to the Bible App and YouVersion.com, too. Our desire is to help as many people as possible freely, easily engage with God’s Word, all over the world, and in any language. Your participation makes that happen.

We’re glad you’re here! We couldn’t be happier to welcome you, our Dutch-speaking friends, to our growing YouVersion family. Please keep checking our blog in the coming days, and we’ll share more details with you about all that this Dutch language launch means. And most of all, please start sharing and getting to know other people in your YouVersion community. Welcome!

You will once again be able to download the NIV and the NLT for offline use
Starting 12:00 AM Sunday, October 30 Central Time U.S. (GMT -5)
Ending 11:59 PM Monday, October 31 Central Time U.S. (GMT -5)

Some Bible App users who have downloaded the NIV and NLT during special events in the past have let us know that they lost these versions while upgrading or replacing their phones. We reached out to Biblica and Zondervan, publishers of the New International Version (NIV), and to Tyndale, publisher of the New Living Translation (NLT), to see if there was anything we could do to help these users get their versions back. They graciously agreed to allow us to make their versions available for download again, but only during this 48-hour window. Don’t miss your chance starting this weekend!

Other Bible publishers also generously offer their versions for free to the YouVersion community for download—all the time. Check the list of available versions on your device right now to see which ones you want to download!


Note: When you look at the available versions on your device, remember to tap the “Refresh” button, to ensure that the list you’re seeing is the most current.


Downloading offline versions:

What does offline mean? Many versions in the Bible App™ are available to download to your mobile device. When you download a version, you can read it literally anytime, anyplace, even when you can’t connect to your service provider or to the Internet.

Below are links to detailed instructions on how you can download your free copy, once these two versions become available again on Sunday, October 30. Mark your calendar, and be sure you don’t miss this opportunity!

YouVersion in German: Publishers Contribute Bibles, Volunteers Translate

At YouVersion, we’re convinced that experiencing the Bible in your own language is the most powerful way you can engage with what God wants to say to your heart. Translating the Bible into the many languages that people ask for is not something we would be able to do ourselves. Fortunately, partners from Bible publishing societies around the world generously join with YouVersion to make sure that as many people as possible have access to God’s Word. Another thing we could never do on our own is translate the many tools YouVersion provides—interfaces, menus, websites, blogs, tech support, etc.—into every language. And that’s where you come in. The same passionate commitment of an extraordinary, worldwide community of volunteers has already brought YouVersion to you in English, Norwegian, Spanish, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Russian, Korean, and Brazilian Portuguese, and now—in German. We are honored to serve in God’s kingdom with you.

Bible Publishing Societies

Our partners have graciously provided the YouVersion community with several options that allow us to together enjoy the Bible in German:

  • Neue Genfer Übersetzung (NGÜ2011). Offered by the Geneva Bible Society, the New Geneva version of the Bible includes the New Testament and Psalms. This translation is well-regarded both for its accuracy and for its writing style: easy-to-understand, contemporary German.
  • Schlachter 2000 (SCH2000). Franz Eugen Schlachter, the son of Franz Joseph Butcher, was a Protestant theologian and pastor who translated the entire Bible into populist German from the original Hebrew and Greek. First published in 1905, his “Butcher’s Bible” grew in popularity throughout the 20th century, largely because he had managed to keep its concepts accessible through simple language, even as he maintained exceptional accuracy to the original source texts he used. Because of its popularity and historical significance, the Geneva Bible Society republished it as an updated version in 2000.
  • Hoffnung für Alle (HFA). Provided by Biblica, the HFA is a very popular German version of the entire Bible, striving more for smooth and comfortable reading in conversational German than for a strict, literal, word-for-word interpretation.

In addition to these more contemporary translations from publishing partners, YouVersion also offers “classic” versions available in the public domain, including Albrecht New Testament and Psalms (GANTP), Elberfelder 1871 (ELB), and of course the timeless Luther Bible 1912 (DELUT).

Volunteers

While great German translations are absolutely necessary for German readers and speakers to engage in the Scriptures, YouVersion has several other important pieces. The Bible App™ is only useful if its users can actually read its controls, buttons, and menus. Volunteers from all over the world united their ability to translate with their love of God’s Word, to make these tools as easy as possible for German users. And while YouVersion’s German-speaking community is already awesome, certainly we can always use more help. We never stop working on growing and improving the Bible App, not to mention all our other tools. We also now offer assistance and technical support in German, whether requests come in through email, Facebook, or Twitter. If you can help with German translation in any of these areas, please let us know.

So what’s it like to translate for YouVersion? Here’s what just a few amazing German language volunteers recently had to say about their own experiences serving the YouVersion community all around the world:

German Language Volunteer Manuel W.

“It’s my deep desire to read God’s Word. Unfortunately, I’m not always getting down to it very regular. I’m studying Computer Science so I’m naturally using my computer and smartphone a lot. This is how I first stumbled upon YouVersion’s Bible App. It made my daily reading a lot easier. At first, when I used it, the App was kind of unstable, and I thought about joining the dev team to improve it. Then I heard about helping as translator. Immediately I volunteered. During recent months the developers put great work in the App, and I was thankful helping out by translating. May the YouVersion community reach a lot of German people, and may everyone be blessed as I got blessed.”
—Manuel W., Darmstadt, Germany

German Language Volunteer Barbara S.

 

“I find the YouVersion Bible App very useful, and I like to help make it available to as many people as possible. For several years, I have been doing volunteer work as a translator and proofreader for various Christian projects. I know this is a special task God wants me to fulfill.”
—Barbara S., Stetten am kalten Markt, Germany

 

German Language Volunteer Steffen B.

“One year ago I first discovered YouVersion while I was looking for Japanese and Korean translations of the Bible. I’m studying these languages and wanted to combine reading the Bible with my study of these two languages. Later that year I read about a need for German volunteers at YouVersion, and I thought about getting more involved. At first I translated into my mother tongue, and now I’m a member of the German support team. It really helps me to improve my translation skills and is a great service for God.”
—Steffen B., Germany

 

German Language Volunteer Tobias K.

“I always had difficulty getting myself to read the Bible every day. I’m an engineer, and I have a smartphone, and one day I found the Bible App from YouVersion. It took me a little while, but once I had spent some time exploring the Bible App, I actually found myself reading God’s Word more consistently. While I don’t mind using an app that’s in English, I know that deters many other people. Then, when I saw that YouVersion was asking for help translating their interface, I realized that I had the chance not just to be a part of the YouVersion community, but to actually help other people use God’s Word more. Now I’m very excited about what God is bringing to our work at YouVersion.”
—Tobias K., Leipzig, Germany

YouVersion Now Available to German Readers, Speakers All Over the World

The Bible App™ Now Available in DeutschIf you read or speak German, no matter where you live in the world, the YouVersion community is excited to welcome you to the Bible App™ and to YouVersion.com! Thanks to partnerships with generous publishers of Bibles in German, the rapidly growing global community of YouVersion users now has access to popular German versions like Hoffnung für Alle (HFA), easy-reading translations like Neue Genfer Übersetzung (NGU2011) and Schlachter 2000 (SCH2000), and even beloved classics like the Luther Bible 1912 (DELUT) and Elberfelder 1871 (ELB).

Although everything at YouVersion is centered around the Bible, that’s just one aspect of what we do. YouVersion also has an extraordinary community of volunteers who have recently devoted themselves to bringing everything YouVersion has to offer to readers and speakers of German. And that doesn’t only mean the interface (menus and buttons), but also exchanges on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, conversations in email, reading plans—even comprehensive technical support!

  • German Speakers in Germany. According to Wikipedia, German is the most commonly spoken first language in the European Union, with close to 100 million native speakers. Just in Germany alone, The World Factbook says there more than 81 million people, making Germany the sixteenth most populous nation in the world, uniquely equipping our German brothers and sisters to reach out to their neighbors in the EU in ways the rest of the YouVersion community simply cannot.
  • German Speakers Worldwide. Of course, Germans are spread throughout the rest of the world, well beyond Germany’s borders. While millions live in places as far away as the United States or Russia, millions also live closer to home, like the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom. But a lot more people speak German than just Germans. In fact, German is the most widely spoken language of Austria, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein. And some other nationalities who speak German as a second or third language include Luxembourgers, Dutch, Danes, and Slovenians—to name just a few—raising the popularity of the German language up to something more like 200 million speakers.

Now, for the first time ever, if German is your preferred language, no matter where you live, you can find the Bible App on all major mobile device platforms. Right in your pocket, you have instant access to the Bible translations of your choice, as well as to a whole host of tools designed to help you connect with God’s inspired Word every day—all in easy-to-understand German.

Welcome to our global YouVersion family! Even when we speak different languages, still we share the bonds of unity in Christ’s transforming love. We’re glad to join with you, and we can’t wait to hear your stories about how God’s Word is reshaping your heart, your life, and your world.

Experience All YouVersion Has to Offer: Completely in German

The Bible App™ Icon (in Deutsch)Today we’re excited to announce the official launch of the German language interface across all of YouVersion, including the Bible App™! While of course the YouVersion.com website has already offered German since February, what we’re sharing today is much more than that. Thanks to the generosity of our publishing partners, and to the passionate dedication of our YouVersion volunteers, now every interaction you have with YouVersion—whether it’s sharing with your friends or engaging with the Bible—you can do entirely in German! German is our ninth complete language, after English, Norwegian, Spanish, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Russian, Korean, and most recently, Brazilian Portuguese.

Here are just a few examples of the many ways that you can now enjoy God’s Word and His people—completely in German:

  • Great German Bibles. Our publishing partners generously provide—for free—high quality, widely read German versions of the Bible for all of us in the YouVersion community. To see a complete list, visit the Versions page and look for “Deutsch.” Or, in the Bible App, select the Bible version you’re using, and you’ll see a long list of other versions, including several excellent ones in German.
  • Entire User Interface. Try selecting German at YouVersion.com or in the Bible App on your mobile device—iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, or BlackBerry. Now you can display all of your controls, buttons, and menu options in German, all thanks to YouVersion’s worldwide community of amazing volunteers.
  • Communication in German. In the upper right corner of the English language version of our blog, you’ll see a place to select other languages—including Deutsch. You can also go directly to the German language version, where you’ll find articles specifically relevant to YouVersion’s German-speaking users, courtesy once again of translation by YouVersion volunteers. And if you send us an email in German, or post a question on Facebook or Twitter in German, German-speaking volunteers will respond to you—in German!
  • Support in German. Need help with the Bible App or YouVersion.com? If you submit your question in German, German-speaking volunteers trained in YouVersion support will gladly assist you. Even our all-new Tech Support site now offers a German version.

At YouVersion, one simple vision guides everything we do: To help as many people as possible freely, easily engage with God’s Word, no matter where you live or what language you prefer. And you can help—if you have friends whose heart language is German, please share this great news about YouVersion.com and the Bible App with them. Also, please come connect with us on Facebook and Twitter and share your personal YouVersion story!

Just the beginning… To all of our German speaking friends: We are thrilled and honored to welcome you to the YouVersion family. We’ll continue sharing more details about the German language launch over the next few days, right here on our blog. We hope you’ll be as excited as we are about all that your new community has to offer you!

Portuguese on YouVersion: 3 New Audio Bibles from Publishers, Translation from Volunteers

YouVersion’s vision is simple and straightforward: Helping people freely, easily engage with the Bible and connect with each other. And of course, hearing the Word of God read aloud in your native language can build your faith like nothing else. Generous publishers partner with our community to provide high-quality audio and print Bible translations. And people just like you graciously offer their gifts and abilities to help reach others through interface and website translation and other tasks. We’re blessed to have the unique, world-changing opportunity to serve alongside you.

Bible Publishers

YouVersion is privileged to be able to offer, for the first time, each of these popular “plain language” Português Bibles in audio form. (They’re also available in print):

  • Tradução na Linguagem de Hoje (NTLH). The Brazilian Bible Society spent 12 years developing the NTLH, working diligently to keep its meaning as close to the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek as possible. The NTLH was designed specifically for readability, targeted at people who have not had the opportunity for so-called “classical” training in the Scriptures.
  • Tradução Revista e Corrigida de João Ferreira de Almeida (ARC). Also from the Brazilian Bible Society, the ARC was first published in two volumes in 1748 and 1753. A translation of the King James Version of the Bible into Portuguese, the ARC is considered a milestone because it was the first time the entire new New Testament was available in this beautiful language.
  • Nova Versão Internacional. The NVI is one of the most recent translations of the Bible into Portuguese. Provided by Biblica, the NVI adheres to more modern sensibilities for Scriptural translation, taking into account not only faithfulness to the original sources, but balancing that with clarity while also maintaining the beauty inherent in the language.

But that’s not all! YouVersion offers additional excellent print translations like the Tradução Brasileira (A Brazilian Translation), 2nd edition (TB) and the Brazilian Portuguese New Testament (WBPT).

Volunteers

Obviously, good Bible translations in a specific language are pivotal for helping YouVersion offer God’s Word to speakers of that language—and audio versions are the icing on the cake. But YouVersion is more than just Bibles. Even the best Bible App is still difficult to use if its audience can’t read its menus and controls. And that’s where YouVersion’s world-changing volunteers come in. People from literally all around the world—people just like you—generously offer their language skills to help others experience the story of God’s love. And the need for Portuguese speakers and translators never ends. YouVersion is constantly updating the Bible App on its many platforms to continue making it easier to use. Our community can use all the help it can get responding to user requests for assistance and technical support, whether that comes through email, Facebook, or Twitter. If you can help, please let us know.

But don’t just take our word for it. Read what some of our incredible Portuguese language volunteers have to say about what it’s meant to them to reach out and support their YouVersion community:

Brazilian Portuguese Language Volunteer Alessandra M.

“There’s nothing better than feeling God’s presence. To read about His love for us through the history of Christ is certainly the best way to do this. Being part of YouVersion.com and The Bible App translation team is a blessing because I know that every day more and more people will have easy access to the Bible in their own language. YouVersion is an excellent tool to strengthen your faith, no matter what language you speak or where you are!”
—Alessandra M., Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

 

Brazilian Portuguese Language Volunteer Marcelo C.

“It is wonderful to feel the presence of God as alive as our God, experiencing the love of Jesus in our lives and His saving work. And the only way to know all these promises for our lives is knowing God’s Word. For this reason it has been so gratifying to be part of the YouVersion translators team. The more I work, the more I read the Bible and the more I feel God’s presence. And YouVersion’s Bible App lets us do it anywhere, reading or listening to God’s Word while doing any activity! God be praised!”
—Marcelo C., Limeira, São Paulo, Brazil

 

Brazilian Portuguese Language Volunteer Eric S.

“When I discovered this awesome application, I had no doubt that I would use it and show it to my friends. I quickly realized it wasn’t available in Portuguese yet, but I saw that I could volunteer! The fact that I can help this great application reach and bless many other people in my language is enough to feel great and satisfied!”
—Eric S., Limeira, Brazil

YouVersion for Brazilian Portuguese Speakers—No Matter Where You Live

Bible App­­™ Icon and Portuguese Flag Over World MapTo speakers and readers of Brazilian Portuguese, no matter where in the world you choose to call home, the YouVersion community is happy to welcome you to the Bible App™ and to YouVersion.com. Partnerships with generous publishers of Bibles in Português now make it possible for our community to steadily add popular versions in Português like ARC Tradução Revista e Corrigida de João Ferreira de Almeida, as well as easy-reading translations NTLH Tradução na Linguagem de Hoje and NVI-POR Nova Versão Internacional.

But Bibles are just one aspect of the YouVersion experience. YouVersion’s community of awesome volunteers work hard to continually bring Português speakers improved versions of everything YouVersion has to offer, entirely in their own language. More than just menus and buttons, this includes email exchanges, conversations on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, reading plans, and full technical support.

  • Brazilian Portuguese Speakers in Brazil. Speakers and readers of Brazilian Portuguese represent the potential to contribute to the YouVersion community in a truly dramatic way. The World Factbook reports that Brazil (also known as the Federative Republic of Brazil) is the fifth most populous nation in the world, home to more than 200 million people. And according to Wikipedia, most Brazilians speak and write in Brazilian Portuguese, a language all its own, unique from European Portuguese by as many as 15% of its words.
  • Brazilian Portuguese Speakers elsewhere. While the majority of people who count themselves as Brazilian Portuguese live in Brazil, of course millions more also live abroad, in places as far-flung as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, Paraguay and of course, even Portugal.

Fortunately, no matter where you live, the Bible App is as close as your mobile device. It runs on all major platforms, ready to bring you full access to all its Bible engagement tools in Português the moment it completes downloading.

We’re thrilled to formally welcome all of our Brazilian Portuguese speaking friends into our ever-growing global YouVersion family. We look forward to hearing your stories about all the ways God is using our worldwide YouVersion community to reach more people than ever before with the life-changing story of His love.

The Entire YouVersion Experience: Now in Brazilian Portuguese

The Bible App™ Now in Brazilian PortuguêsFor the first time, now you can participate with the YouVersion community and use the Bible App™ entirely in Brazilian Portuguese! If you follow language developments at YouVersion, then you may remember that Português has already been offered at YouVersion.com for some time now. But what we’re announcing today is so much more than that. With the official launch of Brazilian Portuguese across YouVersion, now every way you can connect with YouVersion—whether you’re participating in community or using tools to engage with the Bible—you can do so entirely in Português! Brazilian Portuguese is our eighth complete language, after English, Norwegian, Spanish, both Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Russian and, most recently, Korean.

But what does all of this mean to you? Well, specifically, here are all the ways you can now connect with God’s Word in Brazilian Portuguese:

  • Great Português Bibles. Publishing partners generously provide the YouVersion community with many high quality, widely read Português versions of the Bible. (For the full list, look for Português on the Versions page or, in the Bible App, select the Bible version you’re already using to see a list of alternatives, including several excellent Português ones.)
  • Entire User Interface. YouVersion’s incredible community of volunteers continues to change the world. Thanks to their efforts, now when you select Português as your default language, whether you’re at YouVersion.com or using the Bible App on your mobile device—iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, or BlackBerry—all of the controls and menu options display for you in Português.
  • Communication in Brazilian Portuguese. You’ll find blog posts relevant to you in Português, courtesy of translation by YouVersion volunteers.

We love hearing what YouVersion means to you!

Keep checking back… If you’re a Brazilian Portuguese speaker just joining us: Welcome to your YouVersion family. We’re thrilled you’re here! Right here on our blog, we’ll be sharing more about this exciting Brazilian Portuguese launch in the coming days. We can’t wait to show you all that your new community has to offer you!

Volunteers and Publishers Help Build YouVersion’s Thriving Korean Community

YouVersion’s simple mission remains the same: To make it as easy as possible for people to engage with the Bible and to connect with each other, no matter where they live or what language they prefer. We’re thankful to team up with people around the globe who share this goal.

Publishers. Through partnerships with key Bible publishers, YouVersion is thrilled to announce the immediate availability of these great Bibles in Korean:

Volunteers. The YouVersion community is literally worldwide, made possible only by volunteers who graciously offer their time and talents, whether from the United States, South Korea, Canada… or wherever you are. Volunteers are ordinary people—people just like you—who want to help others experience God’s Word in the same personal, meaningful ways that they have themselves. And it’s easier than you may think; if you can help us translate new features and services—whether into Korean or other languages—you can make a difference. Please get in touch with us through our volunteer sign-up form and let us know how you can help.

Volunteering with YouVersion offers you the unique opportunity to impact millions of other people with the story of God’s love. Read what just a few of our amazing Korean language volunteers have to say about their experiences working on the Bible App™:

Korean Language Volunteer Ingu from Gilbert, Arizona, USA

“As I had been richly blessed by the Words of God and the free Bible App from YouVersion, I felt that I should let those blessings flow to others. I wanted to practice the principle of ‘Freely you have received, freely give,’ so I decided to volunteer using the natural talent the Lord freely gave me—my mother tongue! I was enjoying working on the Korean project so much that eventually I realized I was no longer giving freely: the Lord has blessed me back much more in getting to be a part of the YouVersion team, with such great people!”
—Ingu in Gilbert, Arizona, USA

 

Korean Language Volunteer Jason P. from Missisauga, Ontario, Canada

“The Bible App from YouVersion was the first Bible app I put on my iPad. I found the Korean version wasn’t perfect. I also noticed that YouVersion was asking for volunteers to help translate it better. I used to work developing software, and I had been pursuing the Words of God during the last twenty years in church in Korea and in Canada, so when I realized I could probably help with the Bible App, I decided to volunteer. What we’re doing together now is so much more than just translating—we’re answering God’s calling to expand His church.”
—Jason P. (박영호) in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

 

“I am grateful and honored to have the opportunity to get to work together with many other Christians on the Bible App—most of whom I have never met. The intentions we share, together with the strong (yet humble) leadership from YouVersion, makes our important work run smoothly. I truly believe that the Bible App from YouVersion is the best app, both in functionality and content (of course!). I am so happy to be able to tell my children that I got to participate in this great ministry, no matter how small a part I may get to play.”
—Sung (성희) in Denver, Colorado, USA
