Multiple Versions Of The Bible In A SQLite Database


There are many websites online today that have copies of the Bible for viewing.  You can also find Bible applications for your IPhone or favorite Android device.  I recently came across a SQLite database that contains the following versions of the Bible in one file.  The filename to download is bible-sqlite.db.  (Note that working with this type of database is mildly technical and may not appeal to everyone.)

  • American Standard-ASV1901 (ASV)
  • Bible in Basic English (BBE)
  • Darby English Bible (DARBY)
  • King James Version (KJV)
  • Webster’s Bible (WBT)
  • World English Bible (WEB)
  • Young’s Literal Translation (YLT)

SQLite is a free database format this is used in many popular applications.  Download a free executable to read SQLite databases here.  Select a binary version that matches your operating system (Windows, Linux or Mac OS).  If you are using Windows there is also a fantastic application called Expert SQLite that is free to use for personal purposes.  This is a GUI based application that will most likely appeal to more people.  I’ve used Expert SQLite for many years and would recommend it to anyone working on Windows.
