This is the 1606 Geneva Bible.

The Geneva Bible was called the “study bible” because of the inclusion of material that aids studying it e.g. indexes, maps, tables and various other features.

The quote from Wikipedia sums it up: “The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into the English language, preceding the King James translation by 51 years.” (Wikipedia)

Please be advised, that with all ancient texts, one must be careful and view it together with other editions/reprints (in case some text is lost or unreadable due to age etcetera). However, this does not reduce the pleasure of reading the original and ancient texts!

Please also be advised, that to ensure speedy download and reading, the Bible/book has been embedded (as Adobe pdf) – whilst it is downloading you will see a progress bar. However, before the download completes, if you scroll up or down, during this time, the page WILL look a bit weird. Wait till it downloads and all will be OK.

The Original Bible or book is below:

(Sometimes the Bible/book does not load, just change the page number and then retry the original page or refresh the web page)

This Is Page Number:

If you do not see the book on this page it is probably because Google Docs has not loaded it. Please either refresh the page or change the page number and it should start to work.

  1. There is NO link and I have the “latest and greatest” Adobe Reader, per Adobe when I tried to update the software. So, now I’m more than a little frustrated. Both the Geneva and the 1540 “Great” Bible has no way to download. (sad face) Regardless, thank you for putting this out (in theory) for all to enjoy. …just fix the link. :-) BLESSINGS!!!!!

    1. You should be able to read 1 page at a time with the ability to change pagrs in pdf fofmat. If you fo not see a page then click the button to show the page as sn image.

      As per full Bible downloads see the Dowload a Bible link at the top.

    1. Hi,

      This is 1606 so should be OK for you – all the pages should be there.

      If you have Adobe PDF reader installed, when the page loads, hover your mouse over the page and you should see controls to enlarge etc. You can also click the buttons above to view as an image or even a full screen PDF. However, for Bandwidth saving – as these Bibles often are 1-2GB each we only provide 1 page at a time (to change the page there is a page button/list above the page).

      If you want to download the entire Bible a copy can be found here:
