Hello all. This is to mainly Christians (or anybody who is into theology and knows their way around the Bible).

I'd like to have a way that I could read, say, the KJV of the Bible, and be able to also see the original Greek and Hebrew text, perhaps also giving me the ability to see what particular Greek and Hebrew words mean.

The way I'm doing it now, I have to read the KJV, have the Hebrew and Greek versions tabbed, and have yet another website tabbed where I can translate (although I can only do individual words, which is a very tedious process).

Is there some sort of website, or program, that would allow me to easily to all of these things without so much hassle and tab switching?

Interlinear Bible

This site will do the translations on the screen.

Thank you kindly, brother.


It looks sort of complicated, but I'm sure I'll be able to handle it to get what I need.

There's a bunch out there. You may want to search for "Interlinear" and "Parallel" Bibles. One place that has Hebrew, Greek, and King James is interlinearbible.org... This may not be the easiest interface to figure out, but it's one example out of many. Good luck.

To really get back to basics, here's a link to the oldest complete copy of the New Testament:

Codex Sinaiticus


Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance for the history of the Bible and the manuscript – the oldest substantial book to survive Antiquity – is of supreme importance for the history of the book.


Don't be put off by the first page that you're taken to (it's just a fragment) -- if you go to the New Testament, such as the book of Matthew, via the pop-up menu in the upper left part of the page, you'll be able to read the complete Greek text.
