MDCAproductions - Indisputably the best all-around bible app
First, as a preface, I have used almost every other Bible reference app out there, some other apps have more features (logos for instance) but as far as all-around Bible apps, this one is hands down the best. What makes this bible app so great is the accessibility of everything. All of your options are right in front of you, it is extremely easy to learn and quickly navigate. One of the best features is the (free!) downloadable KJV+ bible. It incorporates all of the Strong’s numbers into the KJV, so that you can simply click the number and see the definition of that word in Strong’s, Thayer’s, or whatever other Lexicon you would like. It is only two clicks to switch to another translation for comparison purposes, it works perfectly fine without internet connection, has no loading times like the more popular apps, no ads and has a multitude of free downloadable Bible translations, (KJV+, ESV, Darby, LEB, etc.) as well as reference materials such as concordances and lexicons, and other beneficial literature. To have all of this on one app without it slowing down to load, or getting confusing to navigate is quite a feat. I would highly, highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have the tools to study your bible in-depth at arms reach all the time, whether in the city or in the middle of nowhere.
Alicia312 - FAVORITE BIBLE APP!
I’ve been studying the Word since I was young so I’ve come across many Bible tools, and I can confidently say this is my FAVORITE Bible app, hands down! I LOVE that the Greek/Hebrew references are clickable—right there next to each word, which makes it very easy to quickly look up an original meaning and then return to my reading. I do think navigating the other features takes a little getting used to, but once I figured it out, I was hooked. I love the Bible dictionary feature and downloaded one that works for me. I was even able to download my favorite commentary (David Guzik) which I was THRILLED about, so now I don’t have to leave the app to look that up. The compare feature (to compare translations) is cool. One thing that some may find as a downside is that you may have to pay for a translation that you like. (You basically are buying the e-Sword compatible version of that bible, then downloading it.) But I didn’t mind spending money on a Bible—I got NKJV and NLT and I feel it was well worth it which made my studying easier, so I can read them within e-Sword. But if you don’t want to spend money, there are a lot of free translations you can choose from. A great app!
MMS1958 - Commentaries
The commentaries (esp. Matthew Henry) are hard to follow and find the verse you are interested in. An enhancement would be to try to break the commentaries down somewhat to specific verses, where possible. The commentaries are basically a cut and paste of the authors work, so it’s no different than having the commentary book in front of you. A value-added feature of e-Sword would be to break down the commentaries a little more.
Additionally, it would be nice if you highlight a verse in the daily reading material, that it would highlight the same verse in your default bible. Right now it doesn’t. So if you highlight several verses in your daily devotional reading material, they are not highlighted in your electronic “bible”. You have to do it twice. In fact, why not highlight the verse in all the Bible versions / translations you have loaded into e-Sword. I often switch between multiple bible versions / translations.
SearchingDeeper - Fast resource and good for studying
I have a couple free Bible apps and this is definitely my favorite. I really like the different translations with the compare feature. The Strongs numbers come in very handy when I need to study the Greek and Hebrew meanings to understand the original meaning of the text. I am also using the compare feature to teach myself to read and understand a second language. The format for the search and verse look-up is also better than some of my other apps. There are always areas for improvement in any app, but this is good enough for 5 stars. I would like to get some Bible maps, like the ones in the back of my printed Bible but I don’t remember if they cost money (some features require payment but due to my budget I don’t use those features).
Reen Reenie - High-tech excellent Bible study App, and FREE
with lots of bible translations and additional references that are free downloads. But there are purchaseable (newer and/or not in public domain) commentaries for which e-sword automatically displays the bible verse that you are on. There are many other reference works for sale too that load directly in the App.
You can create your own choice of 3 parallel bible translations and many other features. One click displays the Hebrew or Greek word and definition. Really amazing tool!!! We are so blessed to have this. I thank Rick Meyers and the volunteers for keeping the App up to date.
Born again 1986 - Joshua 1:8
My daily source of feeding on the word is through E-Sword...
I can read devotionals, or scan chapters of the scriptures, or do an in-depth expository study of any scripture.
I have used this for years, but a couple of years ago, I learned I could add this to my I-phone.
My friend just pointed out that I can do an exhaustive search on any word in the Bible through the Strong’s Hebrew or Greek numbers by typing in the number, and searching...
(I used to search original words through a thick book of Strong’s Concordance, and knew how to search English words in E-Sword, but did not know how to search every reference of the original language of each word.)
This one phone app has replaced hundreds of books (Bible versions, commentaries, dictionaries, devotionals, maps, and concordances)...all at the tap of a finger!
It is the single most valuable tool I use everyday of my life!!!
Thanks for making this available to all...
Pastor Eddie LaFountain - Best bible study app
I have been using e-sword for years. One of the best bible study apps I have seen. I am a pastor for more than 18 yrs. e-sword is all the tools you need at the touch of a finger. My study time is cut in half or better. This allows me more time for deeper study. Try it and I believe you’ll use it.
Ps. The “compare” is a good witnessing tool. when you don’t know a language. You can use it to share scripture in their own language. So it will put it side by side with your language of choice. Thus giving the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Aberber15 - It cost money but...
I have had this app for a few years now. I am 27 and been walking with the Lord for almost 4 years. I have probably spent over 100 dollars on this app but well worth it. Some of the Bible apps that have it for “free” are awesome but my only issue is you can’t use at all times you need internet or service. This app allows you to always be able to access your bibles, commentaries, devotions, notes, highlights, etc. Because you own the content. I can’t rate this app high enough. God bless you guys
bro_randy - Glitch needs attention
When sharing a scripture via text message there seems to be no way to cancel if you need to go back to correct any mistake you might have made. I had to reboot both my iPhone and iPad to clear. If there is another way to report a bug, I didn’t see it. I would rather have done it that way than here.
A way to transfer resources from my laptop version would be nice. There is so much more available for the laptop/computer version.
Overall it is a great app. Not as good as the laptop version, but still a great tool.
lambseagle - Just Excellent as Fitting Our Master
I’ve been running Olive Tree Bible software for years and just started using eSword a couple of months ago due to an unresolved issue with Olive Tree.
I love eSword and have recommended it to my congregation. It seems more intuitively designed for ease of use. I was able to purchase every add on module that I want and they all run seamlessly.
And it’s a good looking App even allowing you to change color schemes, etc. if you spend much time studying with it that’s a plus.
James KC3CDV - very good information
I love the information on this app, as a bible student it's very helpful, however I rated it 4 stars out of 5 for the following reasons.
I am a voiceover user and the buttons are not labeled, another reason is the search function it appears to be very clunky. I actually found it one time, I punched in a few words out of a Bible verse and it could not find it. Hopefully these issues can be fixed in the next update, thank you and I will continue using this wonderful application, may God bless you all in Jesus name.
Lenore7283 - Best bible study app ever
I have been using this app forever. It offers so much and takes bible study to the next level. I love when I highlight a verse it highlights all the Bible versions so it makes it easy to cross reference. The available extras are amazing as well. I have everything I need to do an intensive study right here in my pocket. Customer service is the best. I can’t say enough about how great this so is. You will see for yourself. Thanks eSword for the great work and commitment to excellence.
BanjoLemonade - Amazing APP for only 4 bucks!
This app was recommended to me by a preacher and I so thank him! WOW this app is absolutely amazing and PACKED full of so much extra for free. I love the layout, the ease of use, and even the daily reading and devotion features.
I’m not very tech-y and this was easy for me to use with zero instruction. It’s opened up such a world of great scripture comparison for me. I feel blessed by it already and I’m telling all my friends about it. God Bless you, you will not be disappointed in this app.
Padupple - Great Bible App at affordable price
My goto app for study on my iPhone and Mac. The free selections are many and there is the option to purchase others. The layout is nice and the functions keep getting better with updates. I like the ability to copy formatted verses in my work. Perhaps my favorite aspect is the easy flow of functions from history to use of commentaries and dictionaries. I’m grateful to the developer for offering those of us a limited income a richly-featured Bible app.
Patches1950 - Not for iPad!
I bought this version not realizing it was designed for iPhone. Be careful if you want to use it on your iPad! I thought maybe I could upgrade to iPad version, but no!
I tried to request a refund from App Store as suggested by the developer, but all attempts were useless, as none of the links I tried worked as they should. Easy way for Apple to get out of giving me a refund! I had planned to buy the iPad version when I got a refund, but now that I have been cheated by Apple I’m not going to.
Boo to Apple! As this has happened to me with some other apps that didn’t work as I had hoped, I will be very wary of spending much money on ap expensive app unless I can try it out beforehand.
Ahveekhy - FIX THE BUGS! Started out excellent now has bugs
This app for the last few years has done an excellent job, but now there are bugs that make it unusable in some cases. I find that when I go to access scripture and verse some of them don’t work. For example the book of Psalms, when I press on the book no response. I also find that sometimes I can access a book of the Bible but can’t access chapter or verse. The only way I can access it is to press the arrow to go to next page until I get to the chapter and verse I need, which is very time consuming and cumbersome. Please fix the bugs.
Good News - What a great blessing
Approximately 17 years ago I was told of several different Bible apps I could use. I like several of them but I am still amazed at eSword. There are so many Bibles for comparisons, language translations, word study and just reading ease that I have latched on to eSword. I highly recommend eSword for commentary provided, concordance, maps and many other study helps. I feel eSword is the best Bible app resource available for donation. Please support them, God Bless!
A Mad Chemist - A lovely app
This app is thoughtfully written and permits access to a wide variety of resources, many of which are free, and some of them are prohibitively expensive with other apps. The user interface is clean and easy to navigate, and the tutorial is concise while also being thorough. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to go through the tutorial - I benefitted from it. Thanks to the developer!!
RondyR - Nothing Compares
This is the best, hands down. There is no other program, at least that I am aware of, that can even come close to comparing to E-Sword. It's easy to use and absolutely packed.
I have noticed that there seems to be a bug in this new version that continually deletes any downloaded material such as commentaries; every time I open the app I have to download the material again. Hopefully that'll get sorted out soon.
PBibby-1 - The Best Bible App
This is the best Bible app I’ve used so far compared to the YouVersion Bible App. This app is amazing for Bible Study especially for cross referencing scripture. The navigation might get a little time to get used to but once you figure it out, it’s is a powerful tool. I love the fact that you can click on any word and or verse and you can see cross referencing which makes it easy to study. I’ve downloaded this app both on PC and IPad as well.
_only1sue - Best Bible App
I have had this app since 2015. It is packed with everything you would need plus more with commentary and even location as you read. They keep making this changes over the course of time which has been only adding to it. You pay $1.99 but it is actually worth much more. You can also download the free version on your desktop or laptop, which is dope.
Mdhartman - New improvements- feedback
I have loved E-Sword for sooo many years! I just wanted to give you feedback on the latest improvements. I don’t really like how the option bars above and below pop up and disappear. I liked them better having them there all the time. I use them constantly. Also, I tried to copy some verses and couldn’t draw the curser down to the end of the last verse on my IPhone to copy it. Thank you so much for the wonderful Bible App!!!!
adopt-a-cat - The BEST!
This is the best Bible study app available. It integrates your selected Bible version seemlessly with the commentaries and other reference tools. I have never had a problem restoring purchased add-ons with new devices. The interface is user-friendly and uncluttered. I have been using this app for several years now, and appreciate its stability and consistency over time. This has become an indispensable study tool for me!
NotChewy - I like it
Tip. If you need to make a note, you press hold and share to your iPhone notes. You won't find that in the instructions.
One wish list item. You can use two fingers to swipe through search results, but it would be great if you could use that same two finger swipe to scroll through all commentary or dictionary results.
clintonforgood - FAST and well designed
Fastest Bible app I've used. I love the way all search results are shown with preview. Another favorite feature is the section headings that show even while you're selecting a book, chapter, verse.
I've used it nearly every day for almost a year, and so far, my only complaint is that there's no back space in the concordance and lexicon
34:3 - Disappointed
The negative first: The App gui has a dated appearance. The settings only allow the verses to be line by line. I prefer for it to be mixed like my paper bible. If you want NASB translation it is $20. It description of the app states 100+ bible translations for free. But there are only 30 English translations. Now for the positive: I really like how there are lots of free reference books and books on topics like prayer etc. For example I’m currently reading Foxe’s Book of Martyrs which I downloaded for free with the purchase of the app.
harmlessserpent - Worth all of 50 bucks
I hesitated a little on buying this just because it wasn’t free. I’ve now had it over a year, and I would probably pay a hundred if I had too. There are no subscriptions in it, the 1.50 is all it takes. There are a few bible versions that are paid, but the amount of resources you get is tremendous.
DDerekDunbar - Best bible app for iOS
It is simply the best bible app for iOS. And it’s entirely offline so it can be used anywhere. No Ads. Comprehensive. Even has an audible bible included. I love it. I have tried so many bible apps for the iPhone and none come close. God bless the creator of this app. Have been using the desktop version for many years and love that too. But this app is the icing on the cake.
Jellybean50 - I love this Bible app.
I love how quickly I can find a chapter and verse. Love having my Bible to reference anywhere anytime. Could be a little more user friendly. I find myself getting stuck and not being able to back up. Or change settings to have more access to all of the resources in this app. I do love it though
Snapchat_sucks17 - Best bible study app around
I've had this app on my phone and multiple devices for years now. It's my go to for looking up meanings and digging through commentary. The creator has certainly found an intuitive way to make hundreds, if not thousands years of study material and documentation available at our fingertips. I love it!
WilliamJK1 - Pretty good app, but..
So far it’s a pretty good app! Study notes are helpful. The only thing I’m kind of upset about is, I paid the 4 dollars, then as I’m trying to use my favorite bible translation it’s locked and I can’t use it on this app. I don’t know if that means it’s not available or that I have to pay more money to use it. So that made me a little sore. So if you are interested in using a modern translation of the Bible. Be warned, you won’t be able to on this app.
geo 007 - Really sophisticated software
I have used e-sword for over a decade , and have yet to encounter any other bible software as smart and easy to use , am really impressed with the I pad and iPhone versions . The voluminous resources are absolutely inspiring, great works of awesome Christians that never cease to enlighten and stir up zeal for our savior and his church as well as the lost that He came to redeem.
Jamil52 - Good but needs continuous playback!
The narration of the books is awesome. I love it. But please make continuous playback in the background possible! It always pauses at the end of the chapter when I leave the app or lock my phone. It also doesn’t show up in the media box when it’s playing..
Also add a ESV Greek Interlinear Reference please! It’s kinda frustrating that NASB and KJV have a Greek Reference but ESV doesn’t!
Heyrev - Awesome Study Tool
As a pastor and teacher, it is vital to study the Word of God. Before, I had different translations and commentaries spread out everywhere to study. This app puts all of that in one place. And when traveling, it was nearly impossible to bring all my study materials with me. Now, it’s all here in the palm of my hand. Such a valuable tool.
MomOf2Pearls - Finally...a GREAT all in one!
A great app with no ads or foolish movies , just what's needed to study His Word! Very simple, easy to use navigation and thousands of resources to download! LOVE the fact that you get KJVS and TSK free. Would like to see them implement Max MaClean reading the bible and the text editor like in the HD version. Looking SO forward to switching over.
FaithForLife2 - Great App
I use E-Sword on my MAC and Windows PC also. No problems. I purchased some add ons that made the E-Sword way much better. The purchased add ons work on all 3 of my devices with m problem. But I did wonder before purchasing the add ons if they would work only on 1 device. No the license numbers work on several devices. I recommend.
Joyful child of the King - Such a blessing!
I thank God for allowing e-Sword to have been created. I thank his servants for the time, effort, and resources which they have used to give the world an amazing tool to help us understand our Savior Jesus Christ and The Word. Trust in Him and know that the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth. I want everyone of my children to have this app for their Bible study.
Dale Collins - Bishop
I have been using E Sword for many years on several devices. It has been the most awesome and helpful Bible study tool. I recommend it to everybody. I can study more in thirty minutes than we used to could have in several hours. E Sword is the way to go to speed up and enhance your Bible study.
Motherfush - Problems with new update
I love this app, it helps me out a lot in my ministry. There is a few problems with the new update, it won’t let you bookmark verses or highlight them when you press on them. Can you please fix this problem and thank you for this application, it is great!!! GOD BLESS ✝️✝️✝️
Traina Photography - Off to a good start, needs more options
Something that is really long overdue, using low light mode NEEDS to be universal to all the screens in the app (search, history, bookmarks, highlighted verses, selecting any resources like commentaries, dictionaries, etc).
I often use e-sword in the middle of the night and it's always very jarring when making any of those selections.
Kyle Yaakov - Thanks it’s great and I’m grateful
Excellent, it is amazing what is offered and without cost, but in what is for sale they are excellent as well and very affordable everything that the expensive Bible apps offer but mostly for free and what is sold at a much more affordable price as a Yeshiva student on Disability I am grateful and couldn’t do without it. Thanks
MyCoffeeHouse - Great full for e-Sword
Glad to have it here on my tablet and iPhone but background color on the ‘today’ option is always dark with colored text and impossible for me to read with such small print. Please upgrade that so the background can be changed.
Wtgameman - Must have for preachers or just good study
This app is fantastic, I use it every day. I am a preacher, this app, along with a few other document apps, are a big part of every sermon. The accessibility of the dictionary’s and commentary’s and Strong’s. It’s all super easy and very helpful, well worth the price.
Yessir out here - Horrible Experience
Downloaded the app without warning that it only comes with KJV and a bunch of random translations that are uncommon. All your main versions are only available for PURCHASE, but that’s not the catch, they cost upwards of $20 per version!!! Not sure why this is considering several other apps give these version for free like Blue Letter Bible and the Bible App.
I’m guessing it has to do with the monetization of this app ($2.99), each publisher is going to want their cut, makes sense but unfortunate that e-Sword is choosing to go this route.
When I inquired about a refund they replied “apple is the one that charged me so I will need contact them”
Honestly could care less about the $2.99 I feel this is a very poor use of marketing (unclear) and business choice (monetization at the expense of the end user).
But at your own risk.
Mr. Regnier - Less friendly
Was a 5star user friendly but once multiple versions downloaded it now is not easy to use in mobile app as trying to read, because secondary version cannot be unselected from being displayed on screen.
Very occasionally I use strongs numbers but primary use is reading scripture, bookmarking, and highlighting. I am not going back and forth between versions or any other vast resources.
This has been best app for mobile Bible and I hope that maybe there an be an adjustment to be able to just read full screen scripture in “standard” mode.
Thank you for your time and diligent works. :-)
BroFrausto - Phenomenal resource
I have a handful of computer Bible study resources, but e-Sword has, for years, been my go-to program. It's quick, has tons of options that are easily accessed and learned. As an expository preaching pastor, I use e-Sword everyday on my laptop, my iPhone and my iPad. I highly recommend this resource.
Art official77 - Great app!!
I love this app but just like every other paid app I would love for some of the locked features to be unlocked ...not all of them not being greedy but a little bit more than what’s available because this Bible app has Alot of-great potential
jorgesantin28 - Bottom menu
I was reading and looked up a Greek word which is compound with two others. I’m looked them up, it took me directly to the dictionary I can not go back cause the bottom menu loses and it happens always sometimes I have to scroll down or up faster to see it again. I can not attach any image through here. Please fix this.
PastorMyk - Highly Recommended by PastorMyk
Amazing resource for Pastors and Elders, Preachers, Writers, and Bible students. E-Sword is a true 21st Century Blessing to God's people. God must want to wrap up His work as time is running out. E-Sword saves much time and helps expedite the process of sermon preparation. Much appreciated tool and for many years past and years to come!
Effectiverange - 5 Stars but there’s still a but.....
Love this app. It’s the best on the market. It’s worth every cent. Please please please make a way for the app to give you notification reminders to follow a devotional or book reading. I would totally delete my You Version Bible app for that. Thank you.

A Review Comment - Thank you for the App
Dear everyone it has performed well for years although I may not use every functionality to its full potential definitely worth downloading
Nici nice - Love it but
I use this app very frequently. May not use all it’s functions but love what I use. Bookmark was working well for me until recently. The newest bookmark is positioned at the bottom of the bookmark list instead of the top. Can we fix this issue please as it is a rather annoying glitch when you have so many bookmarks to go through. Even deleting bookmarks is a tedious task as you need to delete them one by one. A Select All function would be mixed helpful
Jtwe12ve - Sharp as!
Sharpest two edge sword out there!
Hands down my favourite study tool. Thanks heaps!
Anthony Newcastle - Awesome App
Very resourceful- downloaded modules can be accessed anytime -Thanks for a great app
URTT - UT
Thank you for the great job
GlenbHarris - Great Resource - Highly Recommended
The best thing about this app is once the product you want is purchased and downloaded, accessing the content is quick and responsive. This helps me to be more productive with my time while also having access to what seems like endless commentaries, devotions, other translations etc. A program and app like e-Sword is something that can inspire and equip the next theologian of our day.
My only comment would be having more customisable options for the interface/overall outlook of the app to make it 'look' a lot simpler to the eye. When I first started using e-Sword I didn't know what I was looking at. I had to take some time to figure out what I was doing to be able to use it. Maybe making it a bit more user friendly to the tech illiterate may make an already great resource even better.
Jules1956 - Excellent Bible Study guide
There are so many positive benefits in using the e.Sword LT study guide. I can quickly highlight and underline words, write notes as well as copying & pasting. Being able to expand texts, and then look these verses up before closing what I've looked at to return to my original verses in the bible is so much easier than what I've done previously.
I'm excited about this online study guide, it's the only one I use now due to its ease of use. Thank you eSword. Julie
Frustrated 2 again - Great tool for in depth study
Although many of the free commentaries n dictionaries are old, they are still very insightful.
And study in the Greek n Hebrew is so easy with parsing and explanation for the parsing along with the root words are very useful even for the untrained. Buy some more modern resources and you are in your way to discovering truths and the Word of God for you. Thank you Rick! Love your work n faithfulness.
Rob_In_Aus - Great App!
Great app. I'm not sure how long it's been available, but I only just put it on my iPhone. It was great to be able to download all the modules that I've purchased for our PC over the last 2-5 years.
One disappointment though. It's unfortunate the NIV 1984 version that I purchased as part of the NIV bundle, is not an option to put on my iPhone.
If it is, could someone let me know how to put it on.
Thanks Rick for making this app available and Praise be to God.
sbstuff - Doesn't disappoint.
I too have used the desktop & other mobile versions for years & I've been hoping for an iOS version of this for quite a while. The moment I saw it was available I bought it. Like the other versions this is an excellent resource.
Great job Rick. Keep up the good work.
lil.gem - Esword
This is an excellent product and design. The latest update has improved speed when using Bible and Concordance together. I love it and use Esword all the time, especially off my I Phone. It's accurate, reliable, and I love the fact it used good old King James Version 1611. Thank you
and praise God for this wonderful tool!
Nyasulu G. - The Best Bible App
This is the best Bible App available on the market. Before e-sword for iPhone came out, I purchased some really expensive ones but their functionality is no where near this app. Great Bible study and teaching tool. Thanks Rick. God bless you richly. You are fulfilling your calling!!! Keep at it and please add a place for personal notes. Amen
Bosantho - Great App
I have been using this app for years ( desktop version and recently the iPad / iPhone version). It is extremely useful and is a great blessing. Many versions can be used to compare and have detailed study of the Word. Commentaries are great. Thank you
jameshartley.com.au - Great search feature
I have been using E-Sword for PC for a long time now and was delighted to find it on the App Store. I have tried a number of mobile device Bible Apps, but none have a search function to rival this on (that I've found, anyway!)
Gospel loving Christian - Thanks be to God
Thanks be to God for this wonderful resource.
This has so many things that make study and general reading more easy.
With so many materials at my finger tips, a search engine and in depth study tools, I'm blessed with an entire compilation in my phone.
DJ386 - Wonderful App
Love this app- use it all the time. Preach from it, bible study from it and love the language tools etc. I haven't yet discovered half of the options but still a great app - simple, quick, easy and powerful, thanks.
Hillsrj - Excellent
Along with others have used pc versions for years and searched without luck for an equal app for iphone. Now we have it and is just about spot on. Everything I can do on pc e-sword i can do on iphone app. Top job.
Yuramiru - Sir
Absolutely user friendly bible app, that allows quick and easy reference even in Church without internet during the service.
I would thoroughly recommend this bible app to all aspiring Christians
JpFR33Z3 - Praise The Lord
Very good and nicely done. In the beginning, I was bit of struggling to find where to download extra stuff until I figured out just click on the names. We need some sort a guide .
Noel Stevens - Brilliant
This app is an absolute must.
Easy to use. Easy to search. Easy to navigate.
All without sacrificing accuracy.
Difficult to carry a bible, Strong's concordance, and a Treasury of Scripture Knowledge to a cafe.
This app is a wonderful solution.
JBnsw13 - Powerful yet simple
Easy to use, but powerful too! Can't wait until personal study notes can be linked to the PC program or for the anderoid app! Top stuff! To Him be Glory!
Peter Ack - Very Robust
I appreciate the speed and reliability of this app. The only trouble I have is reading onto a following chapter where I have to go out then back in again.
Aussie-gamer - Love it
This bible app has become a part of my daily life. Simple and easy to use yet with many powerful features. Highly recommended it.
Musictrax shame - Wealth of Knowledge
I can't imaging how such a an app could centralise so much of information biblically & Historically. "eSword my best Sword" I've learned so much, and still drawn to learn more because of its flexibility. Thank you.. MusictraxShane.
Pepi2pit2 - Mr.
I give my thanks and praises to God for Rick who give his all to produce this wonderful apps for iPhone. I am so excited i can get deeper into intimacy with the Lord any tine anywhere. So I greatly recommend it to everyone who desires a deeper walk with God.
Walkindalight - Just download it...
...because it's an excellent Bible app, with many useful features and not difficult to use. And having said that, I'm going to go use it. Bye!
Simonbeverley - Draw Closer...
Great little BIG app for bible study on the fly, everything you need to understand context and specific name and word meaning. Easy to use and really good to help you draw closer to our Wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ.
Thejays - Hooray! My favourite bible software now on my phone!
Been waiting and hoping this would come available for my iPhone and here it is - and works too ;-)
Praiseworthy - Awesome
I have been waiting for so long for an easy to use and functional Bible app. If you do not have this app get it and get the full program on your desk/lap top.
Nuts for God's Word - Fantastic
Easy to use. Quick and fast when you want immediate info on a verse, chapter or book.
Kearvell - Waste of $2.49
Bought the app after reading the description and was extremely disappointed. Not as advertised. I wasn't expecting much for the money but I also wasn't expecting to have to pay an extra $25 for one basic version of the Bible (e.g. NIV). I've got no problem with resourcing myself but I wouldn't have chosen this to do it if I'd known. Don't buy!!
Gerrymcberry - Precious word of God
I have been using this app for years and have been blessed. I wonder if it is possible to synchronise between phone, iPas and laptop.
Ransomed son - Excellent
This app is very helpful, it's simple & easy to use. The access to devotions & commentaries, word meanings etc is well put together. Give it a go
CezaryN - Wonderful
A wonderful app • for dummies and scholars alike • always adding useful features • practical referencing • uses Hebrew an Greek originals • I use it every day and hardly ever use any other Bible app.
Dtclin - Excellent tool
This app is very helpful when you need to refer back to original Hebrew or Greek bible. Would recommend to anyone who want to study God's words
Derfobauhn - Excellent App
I have been using this app for quite a while and have enjoyed it go from really useful to great!
Nyoman Wisnu - Pastor
This is the best bible study, may God bless the people who involved in the making it and make it more possible for every one to have it.

Only needs to change screen orientation and needs a split screen to compare passages
Godlovesyou777 - Thank You Jesus
This free bible software so far! Just a pity some of the best translation are away available for the online version.

Magmache24849 - Great app✨
Wondering if you would fix the study Notes. I read the instructions & the pop-up does not come up. I even trude to copy & paste a verse in the study notes & it does not work. Look forward to the fix or function clarity. Thanks for your help😎
Paul Diat - Good but
There is an error in Rev 1:8 and 21:6: the software developers thought the text should be red but it's actually the Lord God (Father) speaking and not Jesus Christ (only begotten Son) - so it needs to be black. Other Bibles I own have this as black text.
The Father is "which is, which was, which is to come" - He never died! (Rev 1:4,8, 4:8, 11:17, 16:5)
The Son is the "first and the last, which was dead and is alive". (Rev 1:5, 1:18, 2:8)
Read Revelation 4 and 5 carefully. Who sat on the throne in Chapter 4 and Who came to Him to take the book out of His hand in Chapter 5?
mellymeows - Great app!
Really blessed by this app, it has deffinitely improved since the last time I used it. I used to highlight in the commentary but it wouldn't work properly, there seemed to have been a bug. Now the bug has been fixed! I'm so thankful I have purchased this app again! It even has different coloured highlights and other cool stuff. My Pastor recomended this app to us. I would also recommend it.
Friesen's - I Love this app!!
I am an MDiv student at a seminary in Canada and have used E-Sword lt for the duration of my degree. I am currently using it as I write my thesis on Jeremiah’s use of the temple and am so grateful for this tool as I switch from Hebrew to English to explore where and how often certain words are used, etc. Thank you!!
YBSCAS - Arabic search
Search in Arabic gives no result due to short vowels in Arabic.
Please ad a choice to ignore short vowels in Arabic, otherwise do state that function as not available.
Thanks, it is good work.
fixit25 - Family sharing
I was able to ‘family share’ this app with my wife but now it is asking her to download it and pay for it. Is there a way to download it back on her phone without having to pay for it again??
Josties - An amazing Study Bible app!
Thanks for providing such a powerful Bible study app for next to nothing in price.
SallySausage - Good App!
Works great, stable! Thanks for the free data too. Wish it had more free Bible versions though.
Canadian. - Great content, poorly organized
Would love a better layout and fluidity between translations, and commentaries.
asisonlineservices - The best free bible and reference app of ALL TIME!!
This has the official kjv, concordance etc and many others you can customize. The thing that tickles my almo most, is that it reads it out loud to you and very pleasant , not an annoying robotic sounding voice either. Thanks e-Sword you are all the best! I donated when I first got it but I’m going to donate more because your all on top of this app keeping it up to date and improving it for free - peace, respect and much blessings to you all - :D
McFaddin - Excellent Resource
eSword has been and continues to be an invaluable resource. It’s helped me prepare messages, understand the scriptures, and to teach in a knowledgeable manner.
We readily use this app on OSX and iOS with our team. I highly recommend it as a “must have” for anyone involved in ministry.
Vanoplynus - What a tool!!!
Probably the most comprehensive yet affordable bible study app
Abe Neufeld - Abram Neufeld
Sehr gutes App sehr gute Hilfe mit den Kommentaren. Ich liebe es auch sehr das es so einfach ist.

A happy warrior - Drawing life from the Vine on the bus
E-sword LT just keeps getting better and better. It puts many excellent Bible translations and elegant search tools neatly at finger tips so that I can explore scripture in a deep way while riding the bus. Great for digging back to the meaning of the original text thru all the nuance captured by so many different versions. God bless you, Rick.
Sarah2458434 - Affordable bible study aids
Handling Gods Word accurately ought to be a high priority for every follower of Jesus. E-Sword makes acquiring a collection of commentaries, dictionaries, and translations affordable. These tools are key in bridging the cultural and language differences from the original Greek and Hebrew texts.
BullSav - Superb
Truly outstanding resource. Far beyond most offerings on the web.
David T 1955 - Pastor
Excellent! Awesome! Great resource!
Gabverrier - Perfect
It's the same trusted program I've always used on my PC, except the app just made it handier. Very user friendly.
Danielgammon - Excellent App
Great app. Have used it in the past 10 years. Wish it was also free for apple products but I am happy to support this app and the designer. On my MacBook the search fields for a word or a phrase does not clear when "x" is pressed.
Csveen - Awesome
Great program that offers wonderful functionality. I only wish that changes you made on one version sync to the iPad version.
Tamarpalm - Awesome
It's excellent. I so appreciate having these sort of tools at my disposal. Works great, is reliable and even comes with tutorial. I've been using it for over 15 years now and no complaints

Like it's speed. Really zippy functionality. Hope to see full screen mode in the future.
Waker upper a lot - LOVE IT!
Absolutely love E-Sword, especially in conjunction with commentaries by BBC, McGee and Henry👍!
The commentary by BBC is a must have.
Péritonite - Excellent outil!
Excellent outil de préparation pour mes messages. Très versatile et beaucoup de contenu. Les différentes versions de la Bible sont très utile et le lexique est aussi très utile, sans compter les ouvrage historique tel que les pères pré nicéens et l'antiquité des Juifs.
Glorious777 - Great program
Love e-sword. Used this program everyday.
Thank you for e-Sword.
Jackie from Canada - Great Bible app.
Easy to use and great resources!

Use it everyday, best app on my iPhone.
Yashie - Awesome
Best bible app
M the learner - Thanks for your work
For a good number of years I have used your e-sword computer program and i0s app to learn.
I especially like to be able to look up the meanings of the original words so easily by tapping the Strong's number.
Tasha Miller_8 - Amazing Tool!
This is one of the best apps on my phone. I always have the bible with me, but more importantly, access to the Hebrew and Greek meanings behind the Word of God. If you want to truly study, you will want this App.
Kipnus - First choice
Enjoy using it because it is easy to use
Bitoy2010 - Great bible study tool.
Bikerave🌈🌈 - Great app
Was so excited when this app came out used Esword for years on Pc previously
kcsitter - E sword rocks! It is absolutely the best bible app you can get!
The best bible app on the market!
Mickehscoxl - Love this app!
I appreciate having all the study tools at the tip of my fingers. I use the KJV, Louis Second and the German Luther Bibles all the time. Use it in church, especially to compare and quickly look up cross references.
Nahath - God is awesome
Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for my sins. Thank you for the hard work done to make e-sword available to so many people.
Mattskis - So good.
Extremely handy in my studies.

Cory Allen - Best Bible Study App
If you are looking for an app that will help you dig deeper into God’s Word this is the best. It is so well organized, comes out of the box with the KJV plus Stong’s lexicon, and has so many free concordances as well as affordable ones like J Vernon McGee. It is clean and easy to use and always my go-to app. Thank you for an amazing Bible app.
Nbfmmore - Best Bible ever
Esword is the best electronic bible I know easy reading and user friendly. I recommend this above all other bible apps. This is truly a gift from God. Let not God people perish for lack of knowledge when this bible app is available. Hell screams every time I tell some one to download this bible app. Thank you so so much!
Lord Williams - Esword
Excellent. I do not know what else I would add. It takes some time to learn because there are so many capabilities provided. I sincerely hope the authors keep up with the changes Apple imposes on them. I use it a lot, and appreciate the many languages provided.
hamiltnw - Great Bible Study app with great support
This awesome app is my go-to for Bible Study; highly recommended. I also really appreciate that the developers take feedback and app suggestions seriously. I suggested a feature, and it was implemented in a recent release. Thank you, and keep up the great work!
Zack Saul - I’m enjoying it!!
I’ve really enjoyed the Greek and Hebrew part of this app. It’s such a good tool is have in teaching myself and other, rebuking others who contradict (that sometimes includes myself), it’s good for correction, and it trains my mind to dig deeper and think back to the original text!!
Pastor Tawater - E-Sword
I have used this application for over 15 years now and have found it to be unsurpassed in its usefulness. I have owned navpress and several other very expensive bible software packages but this one is the crown jewel of bible software applications on every platform. In my opinion it had no equal.
E-Sword User - Review
This by far is the best Bible app on the market and has been for quite some time. I learned about e-Sword a long time ago and I am glad that Rick has grown the program as technology has grown and increased. Super Job Rick! We appreciate you for sharing your gift and ministry with the world.
Hapee happe happie - My favorite Bible app, hands down
E-Sword is by far the best Bible app I have used, and I’ve used several. It’s extremely easy to navigate, and you have access to tons of good study features, some free and some with purchase. There’s also audio Bible available, which I love.
Bluelew77 - Sharpest Sword there is!
Blessed to have eSword! Whether on my computer, tablet, and especially my laptop- eSword is my first choice for studying and preparing sermons. Any translation and many amazing commentaries from NICOT and NICNT to incredible older guys like Barnes and Poole- you can’t beat it! Thank you for a truly amazing product!
King Olokun - App Theme Issue
So far I’m enjoying this app, especially the Ancient Hebrew Lexicon. My only issue is that every time I close the app and open it up again, the ‘App Theme’, i.e., color on the top, reverts back to sky blue. This is aesthetically displeasing as I have the ability to change it but what good is that when it won’t save my preference?
Nathan Littleton - Awesome!!!!
The best study tool I have ever came across. I the youth leader at my church and use this app to prepare Sunday school lessons. It is easy to use and comes with a dictionary,commentary’s,concordance,word lookup,and others incredible features. I have e-Sword on my iPhone and 2 computers. Definitely worth the money!
kori7777 - Amazing
This is the Best App! It gives you the BIBLICAL definition of the words along with very entertaining audio. Considering how “mysterious” the word can be when reading it, this is a great way to start getting more understanding when studying. I’m hooked! Highly Recommended.
Annbell2001 - THE best bible app
This is the best bible app available in my opinion. Love being able to have the Strong’s Concordance numbers right there while reading the scriptures. Easy to use and many options. A wonderful job by the creator of this app and a thanks to you.
dissapointed guy:'v - The apps doesn't save the highlights:(
I was so excited about this app, it was working perfectly and it has so many good tools... I read many chapters and I was using the highlighter in many verses, but the next day when I tried to see when I stopped reading Yesterday I realized that the app didn't even save anything..... so I had to start over.
Andrewlovesjenny - Faithful work for years!
I'm grateful for Rick Myers for his work in the Lord. E-Sword has blessed me over the last 10 years, first in the PC, and now on mobile devices. Thank you so much for your work. $1.99 is worth our spiritual growth and definitely worth giving to Rick!
CDGroce - Awesome and all encompassing
There is not another Bible app that allows me to do whatever I need to do in order to understand and get the most out of what I read.
There are so many resources to use. I use to have several Bible apps...and E-sword LT replaces them all.
SuBaSc - Desired Bible version a separate pay-for app
I purchased this app because the description stated there are “over 100” other versions and resources available for free download. I use the NIV, NLT, and the NASB for my Bible study. All of those more modern versions are paid downloads. So disappointed. Maybe a list of free Bible version downloads should be included in the description.
Alabama Slugdog - iPhone 5
What a blessing to have this wonderful app to take with me everywhere I go!!! HIS Word needs to be involved in all that we do, all day, everyday. With this app, that's possible. I’ve been using E-Sword for years and love it on my phone! Thanks for the gift!!!
Vineleaf - Top of its class
I have used ESword for about 5 years on my laptop. Wonderful collection of translations, lexicons, dictionaries and reference materials.
Being able to compare translations is a great help in finding more meaning in various passages.
N8B5577555 - Amazing just one thing
Highly pleased with this App except I can’t rotate my phone to continue reading. Perhaps I could better read from my Apple TV once rotating it and using it to read from there 😀
Tony Luchiano - Love it! Grateful for this gift
I have been ministering “officially” now for about 3 years and this app is an awesome tool!! Love the Greek and Hebrew Lexicon and love how the updates are making things easier to navigate and use!! Best bible app ever hands down I don’t care what anybody else says!!! Lol
LMJ.M - Very user friendly!!
Love the options to download other translations and being able to easily select between them. Also love the full bible and easy selection of verses!!
Kegebein - I have found no better Bible App.
I diligently dig, daily, into the Word God. As a Bible based preacher, this is my go to. The newest version is incredible. From the new and safe Apple CarPlay operation, to E-sword’s legendary easy-to-use notes, copy, and paste, E-sword is well thought out and user centered.
Paul Ces - eSword is the Best!
I've been using eSword for more than 2 decades now and it's really very helpful to me as a pastor and student of God's Word. Every believer, specifically those who are indeed serious on what it takes to be a real disciple (learner) of Christ, needs to have this app.
iHacker Xp - Need Ability To Change Language
Overall the app it's very useful for dose who seek to learn more from the Word of God, but the inability to be able to switch to other languages keeps me from using the app as often as I would like to forcing me to use other sources instead, for this reason I'll give it 3 Stars.
Heymattman - Dislike the new split window with word references
Dislike the new split window with word references. Love the app but is distracting in my read that it takes up real estate. Please make it an option to opt in for it.
RMDK22 - Best bible app around
one improvement suggestion i have is for the Bible Study Mode section to be able to be hidden (dragged down or something) because it takes up a huge amount of screen space. anyway thank you for a great app
teresabye - Great study app
This app is really great it has quick switch to dictionary,cross reference,half page concordance,easy navigation to everything . GreAt for a study bible app. The commentaries are also really good
Rev. BK - My "Go To" App for Study
I've been using eSword for years. Even after using some of the expensive commercial Bible study software I keep coming back to eSword. All the tools I need and easy to use!
JLQLUKE - Love e-Sword
I have been using e-Sword for several years. I have bought several versions of the Bible, and the ease of the software makes studying the Bible much easier. Thanks for the free version of this software.
Fgjnjfs - Great app
I haven’t learned to use it to it’s full potential, but it is a wonderful tool for my bible study. I love being able to look up the Greek words and the meaning. I also enjoy the commentary. Great app. Thanks!
Slpgma - Just the Word
I love that this app doesn’t bombard you with devotional and extraneous thoughts or ads. I can just open it up and get right to the Word of God. I appreciate the powerful search tools too.
jshellydsgn - You changed my bible version on the widget
I have loved this app for the last 6 years of using it. However I’m not happy about the most recent update. The only version I have downloaded on e-Sword is KJV on my phone and my widget used to show the verses in king James. Now suddenly they are showing some other version and I don’t see any way to change this in settings. Please correct this on the widget.
Christac1022 - Love this app
Great for bible study!!! I bought a Strong’s Concordance but this is really nice because it has the same info but within the scriptures I am reading. Easy to use also! Very good value for the cost!!!
pgfracing - Great App
Quick easy to use. Only improvement would be to have it have all the same sync journal, topic, study as E-Sword X and auto sync. Definitely more then worth the price.
LonnieC 2 - Love Esword
I love using this app for my daily reading and at worship services. I can highlight scriptures and make notes just like a print Bible and I can make the print the size I need. Highly recommend.
This use to be a good app - Update
I believe the app needs an update.
Every time click on a strong dictionary, I cannot go back into the scripture and it doesn’t allow me to go back. I’m forced to shut it down to reset every time.
Evur2 - Bible study
The best bible app I have found. E-sword is by far the best Bible studying tool. I like having all of the resources in one place and the fact you can choose the resources and not be burdened with things you don't use.
Vetal_metal - Best for the price
Great resource without ads or suggestive daily devotions or verses. Lots of downloadable versions of bibles, dictionaries, lexicons. Some free, some cost. You can use it without need for internet. Never lags. Nice, simple, and never failing app.
RPGamer4Life - A true blessing
To have the amount of material available alongside most translations available in one location makes this companion to the pic version and the benefit to my personal bible studies a true blessing.
Carolyn&J - Best Study Tool I Have Found
I managed a Christian Bookstore for 10 years and have seen a lot of study aids. This is the best and it offers a lot of free study helps. The developers obviously want to support the growth of believers.
Hgfdjjdgjkgsehj - Hands Down the Best
It’s the best study tool ever, plenty of translations and reference books and other study aids and the purchase modules are reasonably priced. Very easy to use, all I can say is Thank you.
News4Bala - Incredibly Convenient Bible To Use
Thanks a million to those who developed this soft version of the Bible. It is incredibly convenient to use anywhere and at anytime. It is an app that you can't live without.
ChristCrucified - Hands down best bible app (for me)
One major plus for me is no internet connection needed. It's fully installed and super quick between all actions. Tons free add-ons and more than enough additional for a fee add ons for any lay or ministry personnel.
Gramto17 - Awesome program
I have this program on both my apple tablet and pc.
It is awesome resource and very easy to navigate.
I would like to see an underline feature for apple.
baptistyouthpastor - E-Sword review
I love to use this app for my Greek study. You can easily compare versions and quickly pull up commentaries. Only thing it's lacking is parallel viewing like on the ipad version.
Child of the King - Awesome!
This is the best Bible study app I have ever come across. I am a minister and I use this app as well as the apps for my pc and Mac to study for messages that I preach. This is a blessing and I pray that GOD blesses the man who dedicated himself and his time to spread the Gospel in this manner.
2G greg - Great Bible study
The Esword is a great app for Bible study and research, you can get a much greater insight when you go back to the original Greek to get a better understanding of what a verse means.
I wish that it had more Versions, NIV, NAS, NLT, etc.
Glens70Dart - Love it
I have used other bible apps but this one has everything one could ask for & then some,look no more
Buster9z - Great App, only one issue for me
The iOS widget is showing daily scriptures from a version I have never downloaded and don’t prefer...so I had to turn off the widget in iOS.
Other than that, it’s a GREAT bible app. I have bought several of the desktop versions sword searcher over the years, and this mobile version does not disappoint either. This gets 4 stars from me :)
Great job Rick
My only other wish is that I Would like to see one or two more free map pack choices.
