Ideas for Verses

We need your help to make Verses even better!

Cheaper translations

As a youth leader I would love to use this with my teen small group but the translations teens could actually understand are too much for them to have to pay.

    Thank you for using Verses and taking the time to share this suggestion.

    We definitely empathize with your concern. Currently we have to pay a residual to any translation publisher if the translation isn't yet in the common domain. We do get to keep a portion of the purchase price, though, and that is how we fund our work on Verses.

    That being said, we're trying to figure out another way to fund our work so that we could make all the translations free precisely for situations like yours.

    In the meantime we really appreciate your support. Every little bit helps us stay full time on improving Verses to make sure it's the best tool possible for learning God's Word.

    The app I use is called fighter verse. It is very simular to this app and I would highly recommend it! It does cost $3 but it is worth it and you get access to all translations. It had games and other tools to help you memorize scripture. Perfect for teens!

    NET Bible is free for stuff like this. And it is new and easy to read.

    It's rude to promote another tool here. There is potentially double honor due here because of the connection between their labor and the Word. People will always haggle on price, and I'd suggest that instead of cost you consider the value you receive for the cost.  If the app is good at helping you hide God's Word in your heart, then what is $5?  Many people spend that on fancy coffee or other pleasures on a regular basis.

    The King James Version is free and it's a 4th grade reading level
