The Bible societies and publishers who partner with YouVersion devote extensive time, energy, and resources to ensuring that they’re bringing you the most reliable, biblically sound translations they can. We’re grateful for the countless hours of labor their teams dedicate to this task. These unsung heroes truly pour their lives into this work.
Because so much effort goes into these versions, Bible publishers typically make available only their best, most up-to-date translation. Biblica is streamlining what they offer through the Bible App, replacing Today’s New International Version (TNIV) and the New International Version 1984 (NIV 84) with their most recent edition: the New International Version (NIV).
Getting to the NIV is easy! Simply go to the reader in the Bible App or at Bible.com and tap the version abbreviation button. And don’t miss the audio version—a YouVersion community favorite!
If you created any notes, bookmarks, or highlights on the TNIV or NIV 84, don’t worry—you’ll still have all of them, with the reference version conveniently updated to NIV for you.
We’re especially thankful to Biblica and Zondervan for their generosity in making the NIV freely available to the worldwide YouVersion community. If you’d like to learn more about their latest translation work, or if you have questions about this transition, please visit Biblica’s website.
