We hope you’ve already been hearing about Bible Lens, the newest free app from your friends at YouVersion, makers of the Bible App and Bible App for Kids. Bible Lens allows you to automatically and artistically see God’s Word in every picture you take.
What is Bible Lens?
Snap a picture with Bible Lens, and it identifies objects, expressions, and more…
…searches the Bible for verses to match, then overlays one as beautiful, high-quality art.
If you want, Bible Lens can even find verses for photos you already have, whether you took them 5 days ago, or 5 years ago.
Are you reading this on a new device you just got for Christmas? Tap below to install the apps that will help you get the most from it: Bible App, Bible Lens, and Bible App for Kids! Start a conversation about faith with your friends or family: Ask if they’d like you to install a YouVersion app for them!
Did you know you can experience the Bible App on your Google or Amazon device? Just start with the same “Ok Google” or “Alexa…” that you use to play music, answer questions, or add to your grocery list.
And now your kids can listen to over 40 Bible stories on Amazon devices! Just say, “Alexa, enable YouVersion Kids Bible.”

Bible Lens is the next all-new app from your friends at YouVersion, makers of the Bible App and Bible App for Kids. Bible Lens lets you take a picture, or point to one you already have. It detects not only objects in your photo, but more importantly, the Biblical themes of the moment that photo captured… and then suggests Bible verses to match!
Bible Lens overlays its first suggestion in a stylized font and color, shaping the text around important focal points (such as faces or objects). You can experiment with different combinations of Bible verses and styles, adjust and fine-tune each version, and save your favorites as you go.
When you’re finished, your completed moment is easy to share. Bible Lens transforms your everyday photos into profound, Biblically-based artistic shareable images.
Breathe new life into your old favorites.
Bible Lens’ Discover feature finds the pictures in your camera roll with the greatest potential to become dazzling Verse Images. Then, Discover amazes you with special moments from your past… now revealed through the lens of God’s Word.
Just as with the photos you take using Bible Lens, Discover lets you experiment with colors, fonts, and more, saving your favorites and sharing to your heart’s content.
YouVersion makes it easy for you to integrate God’s Word into your everyday life, through the devices you’re already using and the new ones on their way. You can find the Bible App in all kinds of places: Amazon Echo, Google Home, Apple TV, Apple Watch, and of course on your phone.
