Download a Bible

We are often asked why are our Bibles are displayed 1 page at a time and thus it is hard to download many pages or complete Bibles/books.

The reason is that these Bibles and books are hundreds of MB in size and many are well over 1 GB. If we were to provide it as a full file it would take tens of minutes just for the reader to be able to view the first page.

Most readers would not wait such time for the first page to show and would assume there was a problem with the website and would go away.

For the above reason we do not provide Bibles in full for download at a time – however, in serious cases of need we could temporarily provide a Bible for download. A special request needs to be submitted using the comments form below.

As we are getting a lot of requests:

Please remember that storage and bandwidth does cost money. It also takes a considerable amount of time to manually upload an individual Bible for each request.

You will often find such can be downloaded on other websites such as archive.org or Google Books etc. Try to search in Goolge like “Geneva Bible archive.org”

We do provide some Bibles on a permanent basis for download here:

  6. Hi Igor,

    The Bibles after 1923 we cannot add due to copyright reasons. Unless you can get those publishers to give us permission. However, there is some mention of the 1924 version that you request being corrupted due to verse rearrangements etc. If you would like this added please state reasons why you believe it not to be corrupt.

    The KJV 1611 is available for download above. We have now added the 1537 Matthew Bible that you mention.

    The Coverdale version is available for online viewing here. You mentioned archive.org in your post and you should be able to download that Bible there.Thanks for the post!

  7. We have received an offer of assistance from the below person. Please be advised that we have not verified the authenticity of this person, but we a happy that there is an offer of help. Please also be advised that many of the Bibles on this site are hundred of MBs in size and as such cannot just be emailed. Please post any feedback.

    To those requesting older bible versions: Please email me your information and I will try to get the versions that you would like printed off, put into a folder and mailed to you as soon as possible. I will look for them on other websites as well to be able to download the entire bibles. My email is trinawar@icloud.com

    Would it be possible to have the version of Erasmus 1516, 1521 and 1535 Greek ?
    thank you

  10. Hi again.

    The 1535 version above is the one on the site.

    The Greek versions we should try to upload in the near future. Thanks.

    1. Hi,
      Could you make the 1535 Erasmus Greek Text available for a full version download again?
      Thanks in Advance.

    1. Dear Editor,

      I could not download from this link (for Erasmus’ 1516, 1535) as well as KJV 1611. Kindly share updated link for these. I’ll be very grateful.

      1. KJV 1611 at the top of this page link works – it is about 1.7 GB so could take more than an hour to download.

        Erasmus 1516 we apologize – that we should reupload it so, check back in about 1-2 hours.

        1. Good day
          i am receiving a error message when trying to download the KJV 1161
          could you possibly send me link. God bless!

  11. I would love a temporary download link to the Cambridge Authorized Version 1909 (Volumes 1 – 5) – William Aldis Wright (Pure Cambridge Edition)? I have looked far and wide for a digital copy of this work. Thanks.

  12. Would you please relist the 1535 Erasmus new testament. I tried the link and assume it is no longer available.

  13. Hello! Thank you for your work !!! God bless you! I would like to know the difference between King James version 1611 and 1769?

    1. Hi,

      Can you be a bit more detailed… what exactly is missing?

      And which web page address are you referring to?

  14. Many thanks for this work.
    Is it possible to request a download of your scanned copy of the 1850 Wycliffe Bible? I would very much like a scanned copy of this work.

      1. Many thanks for that, and my apologies for not finding the one on Archive.org – I saw your note in red at the top of the page only after adding my comment…
        Thanks again.

  15. i want to download Moffat translation bible PDF, Living Bible PDF and an 1850 of Wycliffe Bible PDF. I also need e-sword bible containing many bible versions. But I don’t know the sites to download these Bibles. Pls can you help me to send me these Bible’s in a folder. God bless you

  16. Hi,

    If you may, may you please allow me to download the “The Great Bible 1540” version of the Bible? I would quite appreciate you being willing and allowing me to do so.

    May you be well,

    Justin Pool

    1. Hi,

      I commented a request pertaining to “The Great Bible 1540,” and I no longer am requesting you allow me to download the Bible, as I was able to locate a copy on archive.org. Please forgive my original request, as I didn’t realize I should look at other options to learn if a digital copy was already available to me via other websites until after I posted the comment. Thank you for your time.

      May you be well,

      Justin Pool

  17. Hi,

    Actually, may you please allow me to download “The Great Bible 1540”? I attempted to on archive.org, and was unable to: all the versions the website allows for download failed to appear upon my clicking on the link, and allowed not me to download.

    1. Hi,

      The download link is at the bottom of the page that has The Great Bible of 1540 on THIS website. Please see top right for the Bible’s page on this site or use the search service.

    1. Hi,

      The rest of the Bible has not been scanned to the best of my knowledge by anyone. It is in the New York State Public library.

    1. Hi,

      I have just clicked on the link and the download starts. It is 1.6 GB in size and on a slow internet connection this could take a number of hours to download.

  18. I am trying to find a copy (pdf scan or facsimile) of several old Bibles and was wondering if anybody might either have some or know where I could find them.
    Tepl Bible – an old German Bible that was connected with the Waldensians and used by Martin Luther when he made his translation. It was named after the town of Tepl in Bohemia.
    The Romaunt Bible – Used by the Waldensians, it was translated into their Romaunt language from the old Itala Bible which was their old Latin which predated Jerome’s Vulgate (it was known to be in existence by 157 AD). I found a book that has the Gospel of John from the Romaunt, but not the whole Bible. The Itala Bible was used by not just the Waldensians, but also Patrick in Ireland, and Columba in Scotland, and some references I’ve seen say that the King James Translators also had the Itala Bible in their possession when they translated the KJV.
    I am especially interested in the Waldensian heritage and their Bibles. I have found numerous references to these Bibles I just mentioned, in old history books, but it appears that someone is trying to hide them, as I have not been able to locate any. I even contacted the Waldensian Cultural Center. I thought surely they would know how I could find a copy – but they didn’t even return my e-mail.
    If you might know where I could find any of these Bibles, I would be greatly appreciative for any helpful info you could provide.
    Thank You.
    God Bless.

  19. Thank you for this valuable resource. You have helped me greatly to research something that I had heard very recently. May The Lord bless you and all here as you continue to help those of us searching for truth.

  20. Hi i am wondering if a downloadable version of the KJV 1611 bible can be set up for download. I am legally blind and i have to continiously enlarge each page, as it only opens one page at a time via pdf. For each page i open in PDF, i have to magnify through accessibility features on my computer and it is very tedious and hard on my only eye and for thisreason i am sincerely asking if you could set it up so that i could download a copy of this bible or if you could send a link to my email so that i can click on it and download from that point would be so helpful and wonderful to me. Thank you for your time and for listening and caring.

  21. Is it possible to get a download for the Erasmus 1522, looks like you have it in two parts, I would like to request them both.

    Thank you so much,

    Dan

      1. Thanks for your quick response. I did check there, but they only have the second part with the actual Greek and Latin text of the New Testament, not part one which has Erasmus’ Annotations.

  22. I see that the copy of the original KJB1769.pdf is incomplete (only going as far as the end of Jeremiah). It would be nice to find a complete edition, or make a note that it is incomplete.

  23. hi there
    i am looking for the original 1611 king james from hebrew to english old and new
    testament no greek translations only hebrew to english if the is someone to help

    thanx

  24. I am interested to download the 1611 KJV Bible. I was unable to download from the link provided above. Would like to know if I have clicked on the correct download link.

  25. I am a student at united theological college in the first year doing both ministerial and religious studies. so, I want to have a bible in order for using it in the studies and also to read it throughout my life.

  26. May I please have the 1527 & 1535 Erasmus text that you have in full pdf? I would appreciate it. I am doing much textual research and can’t find anywhere with these on pdf except here. It would be best for me to just have the full pdfs. Thank you. Do you have any of Beza’s other than the 1598? I have the 1565 but I’d like to get a hold of any other editions. Also, do you happen to have any of Stephen’s texts besides the 1550? How about the Elzivir brothers, any of those editions? Can I also get the 1915 Murdock translation of the Peshitta, and the 1893 Syriac Bible? Thank you.

    1. Hi,

      I think all Erasmus links are above – some in comments.

      You have a 1565 Bezza can you provide a download link for that?

      You ask for interesting Bibles, but if not on the website we do not have such. If we do have please provide the page address. If we do not have and you find such… again please provide download link so would can provide to the world.

      1. Oh, I should’ve checked that earlier about the Erasmus copies–found the link above for the 1535, but, there is no link to a downloadable copy of the 1527. If you have it at a downloadable link, would you please relist it, or send me the link? Thanks. Here’s the link with a downloadable copy of Beza1565: http://www.e-rara.ch/gep_g/content/titleinfo/1751933 . The 1915 Murdock of the Peshitta and the 1893 Syriac are ones you have on your website–I was only trying to be able to get downloadable links for those if I may. Thanks.

    1. Most of the English Bibles are translated from the Hebrew. If you look at the Link top right for JPS 1917 that should help.

  28. Hi I am looking for a Bible called The Scriptures 2009. It uses the original Names of ELOHIM, YAHVAH and Yeshua Messiah. I have found it on the You Version Holy Bible app on my phone but would love to be able to print it. I can’t find any of the translations here in South Africa.

    1. Because of the date copyright blocks most Bibles… We only go back to the 1920’s!

      Most publishers block Biblical versions using copyright… We think this is not ideal, but we do understand cost of production etc.

      I would suggest contacting the publisher.

  29. PLEASE, CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME DOWNLOAD A COPY OF A BIBLE TRANSLATED BY MR. GEORGE LAMSA.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  30. Seeking to download all bible versions available to make available to others so you can post working links to torrent or zip files depending on size of archive:

    If you have an archive of all of your bible translations, I can employ modern technology to distribute the media without cost to you. If you give me a link to all of your bibles, I can #1 post them on a website with a lot of allotted bandwidth. #2 put them in a torrent file, #3 put them on IPFS which will let others distribute them in a decentralized fashion. If interested you can contact me at the email address I supply. I tried sending to support@, but I’d rather post a comment. There are many other ways to work around bandwidth limitations and hosting platform issues. I can give you torrent links and magnets and more if you are interested.

    1. If you read this page you should see the most common requests. I am trying to give alternative archive dot org links where possible. But sme like the KJ1611 would need to have an alternative link. As I have blocked access – the links that come back with a 500 error are blockef.

      If you want you can make a list of those and temporarily give downliad access 1-3 days for you to download and provide alternative (non-ads) based download links. The torrent idea can be additional but I do not want such to be the main download place as many users may not use such.

      Thanks.

      1. The list I should like is all of the bibles and materials you have available. Send an email to innerschool@xmail.net with links and after I download your archive I will index, and provide you with links that can be used without advertisements. I will email you once I have all of them with links and a zip of torrent files for each. Even if it’s a multi-gigabyte collection I have not found a site that has what you have. Searching google or other search engines with references simply returns null and void. Let not the Word of God return null and void.

        I will put it up on a non-ads based site. Innerschool is currently serving gigabytes of archives of various texts with unlimited bandwidth. https://innerschool.org is the site. I can add a directory called /bib/ I can zip each PDF to make sure it is for full download, so the browsers won’t load automatically. I also have another server that can be used to seed torrents on a 100mbit line. i All the Best and God Bless.

    2. As per your other comment – we do not provide full site Bibles and books. Only what is on this page.

      Also, we would need to verify the authenticity, integrity and your site admin and other data. Please send such to our support email. Replies shall be here, considering privacy and data integrity etc.

  32. i want to download the english hindi parallel Bible also hindi telugu parallel Bible can you please help me or you can send the link to my e-mail, the english Bible should be KJV in both cases.

    1. Hi,

      If you can find the Bible in our search I could give a download. But I suggest you contact the Bible Society of India or your state for such.

  33. I am looking for Tamil Bibles published in 1850, 1860 and 1920 for my personal use. The reason is that the Bible has a summary of the chapter, heading and references which is unique by the early translators.

    1. Hi,

      If we have such on this site please provide the page address i.e. URL so we can add them for a temporary download.

      If we do not have such on the site then we cannot provide such but advise you to contact the Bible Societies in South India or Sri Lanka.

    1. It is an idea… maybe in the future as one would need to have upload servers for all Bibles – about 100GB running 24/7 at a speed that people can download at least 10 MB/s for multiple fies – that would cost thousands!

      Try Archive. org

  34. Please provide a full-download link for “Testamentum_novum_graece_ex_reguus_aliis_1624_Elzevir.pdf” (previously posted links no longer appear to work). Thank you!

    1. Have restored the link – it might be a temporary restore as some out there seem to feel they can abuse our server by downloading hundreds of GB in hours!!! Causes problems to the site, costs and risks the future.

  35. Good day, can you please provide download link for the……
    Koine Greek New Testament 1860 PDF (Textus Receptus)
    Not able to download. Thanks.

  36. I clicked on the link ‘King James Bible 1611’ at top of page, which opens think link:
    ‘http://originalbibles.com/PDF_Downloads/KJV1611.pdf’
    It’s been running for over 2.5 hours, the blue progress bar at top of screen is at about 95%, been parking there for 30 minutes.
    If I right-click in the page, select Save as.., the size displayed for file download is 1.8GB. Is that correct file size for
    ‘http://originalbibles.com/PDF_Downloads/KJV1611.pdf’

    1. Yes the downwload size is accurate!

      Now do you understand the message at the top of this page???

      It is very easy in moderm times to assume a quick click and all is happy!

      I have paid and still pay for all such GREAT downloads!

      I have not put advertising nor do I accept donations.

      Every request needs to be manually looked at and links provided or a search for alternatives eg archive!

      Yes, you are downloading a very ancient Bible and pictures/scans do become a big Bible etc…

  37. Hello, You have a 1769 bible KJV download as a pdf? because here in the site the only link that dont work for me is that version 1769 kjv and if you can upload one to download it doenst matter the size for me but if you can get it complete because I read that there are pages that are not in the pdf if you can not get that bible full, upload it anyway because I want the version 1769 original.

    1. Hi,

      The download link should work now – but it might only be for a temporary amount of time.

  38. Hello, I am wondering if you would give me the download for the The English Revised Version 1885. I have looked for it and can’t find it online. These are no longer being published. I did look at the download available on this site, however, it does not have the marginal notes which I need. Thank you for your time and thank you for your site as a resource.

  39. If you would be so kind to send me the link for this Bible then I will also reply and tell you what the True light is.

    Regards

  40. Sorry – that is to get the Hindi and Telugu New Testaments for download?
    Thank you again so much

    1. Can you please place the request on the specific Bible’s page as we have a number of Hindi Bibles.

    1. Hi,

      Can you please post this request on the Bible page so we know exactly which one you want.

      Thanks.

  41. I have to admit.. It is not so easy to go back to ages and read the original bible out loud. The very old English mixed up pronouns. Love your work.
