YouVersion Suggest: look up Bible references quickly and easily

Recommended Posts

What does it do?

 

YouVersion Suggest is a workflow which allows you to search across the YouVersion Bible for any verse, chapter, or book (in any version).

Why do I want it?

 

I created YouVersion Suggest because I wanted to great simplify the effort required to look up any Bible reference (be it a verse or chapter or book in a particular version). As a believer in Christ, I think that quick and easy access to Scripture is important, and so that's exactly what I've tried to do.

 

How does it work?

 

Type the yv keyword in Alfred, followed by a space and a phrase representing the bible reference you wish to find. The phrase can be part of a book name, chapter, verse, or range of verses. You may also include an optional version (translation) at the end of your query. As you type, YouVersion Suggest will display a list of suggestions matching your query.

 

Examples

 

'luke' => Luke

'eph 3' => Ephesians 3

'1t3e' => 1 Thessalonians 3 (ESV), 1 Timothy 3 (ESV)

'mat 6:34 nlt' => Matthew 6:34 (NLT)

'1 co 13.4-7' => 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

 

What versions/translations are available?

 

Currently, English is the only supported language, but the following versions are all supported:

 

AMP, ASV, BOOKS, CEB, CEV, CEV, CEVUK, CPDV, DARBY, DRA, ESV, ERV, GNB, GNBDC, GNBDK, GNT, GNTD, GWT, HCSB, ISR98, KJV, LEB, MSG, NIV, NIVUK, NLT, NET, NKJV, NCV, NASB, NABRE, NIRV, OJB, RV1885, TLV, WEB

 

YouVersion Suggest uses NIV as the default translation, but of course, you can easily specify your preferred version when searching.

 

Where can I download it?

 

You can download the latest version from Packal. I hope you like it! :)

This is awesome!  Thanks Caleb!

 

I would love to see a mod key (maybe opt) to copy verse or chapter to the clipboard.

 

I actually did add that functionality at one point. However, the logic was rather complicated and unreliable, so I removed the feature.

If you enjoy studying the Bible this is a FANTASTIC resource.  You can search for any word or phrase and get results instantly showing ever verse in the Bible where that word is used. Truly an awesome workflow!

 

Caleb, You are a genius. This Thank you for creating You Version Suggest. What a brilliant tool - I use it all the time. This is by far the best Bible workflow ever made. Thanks a bunch!
