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.

If you want to make a request you must list at least 5 Bible archive/library sites that you have already tried.

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

KJV ERV WTT GNV TIS Full Bible Download

King James Bible 1611

King James Bible 1769

Geneva 1569

  8. 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!

  9. 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

    I hope this helps and as soon as possible we should get this and the other Bible translations uploaded to the main site and then as downloads for you.

    Hope it helps.

    • 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.

      • 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.

  31. 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

    • 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

  32. 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.

    • 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.

  33. Why does your KJV 1769 end in the Book of Jeremiah? I need the New Testament in the 1769 edition especially please.

    • 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.

  36. Hello,

    Would appreciate the Moffat Old Testament. For some reason only the New Testament is available online.

    Thanks.

  37. Hi,

    Yes even we have found it hard to find the old testament. Try looking under dates contained here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moffatt,_New_Translation

    We did see a lot of paper versions for sale.

  38. G.Chandra sekaran

    Thank God for gave his word for me and the world.

  39. The 1611 kjv not downloading.

    • 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.

  40. Hello. Would you please provide a link to download the entire Matthew’s Bible 1537? Thank you! :)

  41. 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.
