making an Illuminated Bible OLD TESTAMENT INDEX NEW TESTAMENT INDEX BOOKS IN THE BIBLE static verses / dynamic verses


Welcome to the Illuminated Bible. The Books Index will take you to any verse of the Bible - over 31,000 of them.

Each verse is on a separate page, and in large, easy-to-read text.

There are actually four complete sets of Bible verses on line here - one is a "static set" (pages permanently on line) via the Books Index at There, the verses can be reached via the index pages of the 66 books in The Bible.

And there are three "dynamic" sets of verses, via the Books Index at

  • the "next verse set" (direct access here) has a "next" link on each page, so you can click through to the next verse. There's also a line (by that link) that tells you where you're going next, so you can see when you're moving from one Chapter to another, or from one Book to the next.

  • "just verses" (direct access here) has a silver cross on either side of each verse - the left-hand cross clicks through to the relevant Chapter index of the Book you're reading, and the right-hand cross takes you straight to the next verse.

  • the "plain verse set" (direct access here) has no header bar at the top - so it's ideal if you want to print out a Bible verse for your wall, say. But that set also has the silver crosses so you can read onwards through The Bible in that style of verse, if you wish.

    But also - every verse on line here (aside from those in the "plain verse set") has links above it to the other sets. Just click the links to go from one set to another (each link will take you to "the same verse" and you can read onwards from there, in whatever page-style you choose).

    To switch from plain verses to another set, just click the left-hand silver cross on any plain verse page, to reach the (same) Book index page in the "next verse set" and you can choose your preferred page-style from there.

    All verses on line here are those in the King James Version of The Bible.

    You won't find any "commentary" on this website. We don't presume to tell you "how to interpret the verses" - we just present the verses themselves, for you to explore, if you so wish.
