Wait for it… Choose your own Bible Lens verse!

Bible Lens - Pick your own verse

Enjoying Bible Lens? By now it’s probably made you laugh, brought tears, and even given you the warm fuzzies. But what about those times you think of a specific verse you really want to use, and Bible Lens doesn’t pick that one? Great news…

Now you can choose your own verse in Bible Lens!

Just tap the + in the list of Bible verses to pick your own (like “John 3:16”). You can even search for the verse you want by typing out whatever part you can remember (like, “For God so loved the world”). And don’t forget to share your awesome Bible Lens creations with us on Instagram with #BibleLens!

Give it a Try!

Help these 20,000 people get their first Scripture ever.

Bible For Everyone

Do you believe the Bible is God’s inspired Word?

Do you give God’s Word a voice in your life?
What if the Bible didn’t exist in your language?
For more than a billion people, it doesn’t.1
You can help change that…

What if everyone had the same opportunity to hear from God’s Word?

Ministries are already working to get the New Testament translated into most of the world’s languages by 2033. Through #BibleForEveryone, we’re helping fund high-impact projects that they can complete quickly.2 So far, the YouVersion Community has already helped more than 1.5 million people get Scripture in their language.3

This is your chance to make an eternal difference in the lives of 20,000 people.

Give now, and help the Mosiye people of southern Ethiopia get the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, as well as several key Bible stories translated into their language, Bussa. Your generosity can help give these 20,000 people4 the first Scripture they’ve ever had. It’s simple:

Give Now

As believers, one day we’ll experience the great joy of meeting people in Heaven whose lives we touched here on Earth.

…I looked, and there in front of me was a multitude that no one could count, people from every tribe and every nation.

2 All contributions received through the #BibleForEveryone campaign will be used exclusively for the purpose of Bible translation. Additionally, Life.Church is contributing $1 million over the four-year period from 2017-2020. During each calendar year, Life.Church is contributing $250,000, spread across different, high-impact translation projects. As each project is completed, any remaining funds contributed to this campaign are then applied toward the next translation project, as selected by YouVersion and its partners. (See original blog post for full details.)
