Biblical Resources

A number of free and often downloadable copies of numerous Bible translations are widely available online. One of the most popular sources for Bible translations, Unbound Bible, has been discontinued as a web-based interface as of April 2021. Instead, it is now available as a download for both Windows and Mac. Unbound Bible contains ten different translations of the Bible as well as supplementary resources.

Christian Classics Ethereal Library offers a several downloadable Bible translations and allows users to select Scripture from any one of ten different English Bible translations and view it side-by-side with commentary. However, these commentaries are not sufficiently scholarly to be usable in the context of academic work. Contact your professor for guidance on which commentaries will be appropriate for your research needs. You may also want to schedule a one-on-one consultation with the librarian liaison to LIM for assistance with your research needs.
