How to Use the BLB

What is in the Blue Letter Bible?

The Blue Letter Bible is an Internet site on the World Wide Web. Its address is https://www.blueletterbible.org.

The Blue Letter Bible contains a suite of Bible study tools including more than 10 English Bibles, concordances, lexicons, cross-references, commentaries, and more.

The Home Page search feature:

When searching for a particualr passage, type in the Scripture reference and select a preferred translation. Clicking SEARCH will navigate diractly to the verse or chapter desired.

When searching for a word or phrase, enter those terms and selected the Bible translation you wish to seach. Clicking SEARCH will navigate to a list of results that match your search criteria. Additionally, tabbed results will allow you to explore partial matches.

Under "Tools" there are six tabs:

  1. Interlinear contains original language tools, allowing for access of a range of resources designed to promote study of the terms from which our English Bible derives.
  2. Bibles presents more than 10 translations of the selected verse, allowing comparison and prompting better understanding of the authors’ intent.
  3. Cross-Refs contains the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge (TSK), a method for correlating a particular verse with others that may relate.
  4. Commentaries collects text commentaries, audio sermons and presentation, and various other study resources.
  5. Dictionaries displays links to related entries in our several dictionaries, encyclopedias, and topical works. Results will come from:
    • Condensed Biblical Cyclopedia (CBC)
    • Easton's Bible Dictionary
    • Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary
    • International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia (ISBE)
    • King James Dictionary (KJD)
    • Nave's Topical Bible
    • Smith's Bible Dictionary
    • Thematic Subject Guide
    • Torrey's New Topical Textbook
    • Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
  6. Misc collects maps, images, and music that to the selected verse. (This feature is not available for all verses.)

The Word Search results display four main tabs:

  1. Primary shows a list of all verses in which a the searched word or words occur. A search for multiple words will also bring up the results tab, so that.users can refine their search for more expansive results. If one performs a wildcard search (using an asterisk* to search for any suffix to a term), you'll see the results tab.
  2. Dictionaries provides results that match entries in our dictionaries, encyclkopedias, and other topical reference materials.
  3. Lexiconc displays a list of Greek and Hebrew words whose translantion in some cases matches your search terms.
  4. FAQs links articles from our Frequently Asked Questions section that relate to your search terms.

How do you use all the above features?

All of the features described above are readily available on Bible pages through the Tools button adjacent to any verse reference. Clicking/tapping the Tools button makes these tabs available:

  1. Click on the Tab under Tools or button for Greek/Hebrew and concordance/lexicon. The verse will be re-displayed along with the Greek/Hebrew text. Click on any English word within the table to see search results. You will see how the English word is used in the KJV translation, as well as dictionary entries discussing that word. Or, click on the Strong's number next to the English word. It will give you a concordance of the usage of the original language word, and a lexicon entry including a pronunciation guide.
  2. Click on the Tab under Tools or button for a comparison of different Bible translations.
  3. Click on the Tab under Tools or button at the far left to see suggested scriptures that relate to the verse.
  4. Click on the Tab under Tools or button for a list of all audio, video, and text commentaries relating to the selected verse.
  5. Click on the Tab under Tools or button for a list of all dictionary articles that relate to the selected verse.
  6. Click on the Tab under Tools or button for a link to maps, images or music that pertains to the chosen passage—this feature will not be available for all verses.

For doing a Word Search:

If you do a Word Search on one word you will receive results similar to this:

Notice that when you do a Word Search for more than one word the Tab appears with more results:

If you do a wildcard search using the asterisk to represent any suffix, the Tab appears:

Thank you for your interest in the Blue Letter Bible and we hope that God will grant you continual blessing in your studies.
