I agree with your use of the word "treasure". I had to take a three-hour bus ride yesterday, and I spent it listening to the Bible in order. I read somewhere that audio Bibles are usually about 75 hours long. So I started at the beginning a few weeks ago and have been listening almost every day, intending to go all the way to the end of Revelation and then start over again.
Anyway, that's how I felt too, that it was a treasure I was listening to, and made the bus ride a very positive experience.
Yes Mrs Spooner there are 4 versions. KJV, NIV, ESV, AND MSG. The first three of those have several voices to choose from. I’m pretty sure you can get a weeks free trial. I certainly used it about 6 months ago then didn’t want to pay so I stopped. But then I was really looking for an app where I could listen to a passage over and over Without having to keep pressing replay, and I knew this one did it. I’d be happy to hear of other apps as I’ve subscribed for a year but it is expensive and I’m sure there must be a cheaper way. But on the other hand, it’s probably a small price to pay to fill our hearts with such treasure. I’ll look into Biblestudytools.com.
Another good place for audio bibles is Biblestudytools.com. It has many different Bible versions. It's free but you need to be online to listen if using the website. There is also an app version from which you can (I think-haven't done this) download audio bibles to listen to them offline
Thanks for the tip JDJDJD, I'd like to try it... on the Dwell app can you choose your preferred version of bible translation?
Thank you for sharing that, JDJDJD. That's a good technique you mentioned in general, to listen to God's Word as you are falling asleep, and also a good method for memorization :) I'll check out the app also.
I’ve been using another app called Dwell to help me learn scripture. What I like is that I can choose a passage to listen to and set it on repeat and it will be read over and over again to me. I go to sleep listening to whatever passage I am currently working on. Sadly it’s not free but I decided to take the plunge and pay for it, and am glad I did. I definitely recommend it to anyone who needs some extra help.
Perhaps A1 is using some other site, such as Memverse. Or perhaps (she or he) is here but decided to use a different username. Hopefully, it's one of those two possibilities :)
Oh wow they just disappeared!! 😱 I hope they are ok.
I have wondered that too.
Anyone know what is happening with A1
That’s a wonderful thing to hear and I can whole heartedly agree. He is faithful!
When I started on this journey of learning the Word , I had no idea how the Lord would use it to sustain me through a tough time and bring me through the other side, trusting less in myself and more in Him!
In response to Janet23’s question, learning God’s Word has helped me to be thinking about God and His Word, and communing with Him more continuously throughout each day. It’s such a blessing to have access to His Word!
How has learning God's word changed you?
What Scriptures are speaking into your life at the moment?
Thanks for that :) Lovely truth!
