You spoke, and we listened! Now, our search is better, faster, more advanced…..and easier to use! Many of you kept asking for an easy way to copy and paste scripture from YouVersion to your blog, a document, etc. Now you can!

Now you can easily copy and paste scripture from YouVersion as well share scripture from your search via email.
