The Online Bible for Macintosh – Software Bible Study and Texts for Mac or Windows.

Online Bible for Macintosh will NO LONGER BE UPDATED for the new operating systems. 
Sad to see this great program become obsolete. 

My program of choice for studying the Word
Jefferis Kent Peterson

Bible for Win/DOS users also available)
Ken Hamel has created a nifty little program for studying the Word
of God. One of its nicest features is its ability to paste Bible verses directly
into any of your art, email, or word processing programs with its FKey application.
It is free for the basic version with the King James Bible. The Full and Deluxe
versions are available on CD ROM.
They include NIV, NRSV, NAS, Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, Greek, Hebrew,
and hun dreds of other valuable resources. These versions cost something because
of royalties, but they are well worth the price. However,the price for the Online
Bible is much less than some commercial programs. I encourage you to check it
out for free, and then, if you like it, buy
one of the full versions
.You will not be sorry.

You can download the latest version
A copy of the KJV New Testament is posted there as well.


The Macintosh version of Online Bible has just recently been
updated. In addition, new CD-ROMs with additional material
have been produced.

New program features:
Support for pictures.
New tile option and commands.
Automatically save and restore last window configuration.
Copy range command for Bible passages and search results.
Bible texts displayed using italics instead of square brackets.
See “What’s New” file for a complete list.
