What Bible verse changed your life?

Bible For Everyone

Think of the ways God’s Word has transformed your life. Imagine how different your life would look if the Bible never existed in your language.

In 1st century Jerusalem, a small group of disciples made the radical decision to live out Jesus’ words:

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you…

MATTHEW 28:19-20

Their obedience and profound love for people groups they had never met has resulted in our transformation 2,000 years later.

And yet…

There are still over a billion people who haven’t experienced God’s Word in their own heart language. People like the 1.3 million men, women, and children in Mahafaly [MA-HAH-FAH’-LEE] language communities in Madagascar who have never had any Scripture.*

Translation teams in the island country of Madagascar want to break the bondage of legalistic fear the Mahafaly people experience by cultivating an understanding of God’s love, power, and redemption through Christ.

By giving to this #BibleForEveryone project, you’ll be helping the Mahafaly people receive the life-changing power of Scripture for the very first time: starting with the Gospel of Luke.

Imagine what life change could occur if we met this need together.

If not us, then who?

For nearly 3 years, YouVersion has been working alongside Bible translators to actively identify high-impact Bible translation projects that could rapidly be completed with the proper funding.*

Our goal is to see the entire New Testament translated into most of the world’s languages by 2033. We can make that happen by saying “yes” today.

So…

…are you in?

I’m In

YouVersion Has 139 New Bible Versions, in 114 Languages

Person reading Bible on phone

Thanks to the generosity of our Bible publishing partners, in just the last six months, YouVersion has added 139 more Bible versions, in 114 languages. (See the list of the most recent below. See our recently added Audio Bibles here.) That means we now offer more than 2,000 Bible versions, representing almost 1,400 languages! See if your preferred language is there, and share this page with your friends!

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17

It used to take decades to translate the Bible into a new language, typeset it, print it, and distribute it. Today, thanks to improved travel and communication, new technologies for translation, and innovation in managing projects, that time has been reduced to as little as three years. And today, as soon as we have the final digital files, we can have a new Bible version available worldwide… within minutes.

You can take part in this global move of God that’s happening right now. Support Bible for Everyone, and your donation will go directly to the next high-value translation project in our queue.1

What if God’s Word had never been translated into English?

Bible passage with topographical map overlay

Remember when you first learned what God gave up to reach you? About Jesus and his sacrifice? You wanted to find out everything about him that you could. And it was all right there at your fingertips:

Jesus’ Parable of the Sower, his Parable of the Talents, his Sermon on the Mount. Jesus gave sight to the blind, healed the sick, walked on water, even raised his friend Lazarus from the dead! And the things that Jesus said:

Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men…
Blessed are the pure in heart…
Love your enemies…
My God, why have you forsaken me?…
It is finished…
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Just think how those words have changed your life…

And all because you could read or listen to them. The Bible has been translated into more than 400 versions in English. The Doondo people (pronounced doe-WAHN-doe) don’t have even one version in their language. In the Republic of the Congo, they can’t read in the language of their heart the things Jesus wants them to know:

Love your neighbor as yourself…
If anyone strikes you on one cheek…
If a man has a hundred sheep, and one wanders off, will he not leave the 99 to seek the one?…
Come to me, and I will give you rest…
I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

We can make that right. Together, you and us.

We have friends who are already working with Doondo speakers to help them get their first Scripture ever, in print and audio, as oral Bible stories, and on the YouVersion Bible App. For almost three years now, through #BibleForEveryone,* we’ve been helping Bible translators fund high-impact projects that can be completed quickly. Their plan is to have the New Testament translated into most of the world’s languages by 2033. But for today, right now…

Let’s share the blessings we already enjoy with our brothers and sisters in the Republic of the Congo.
