ArabBible for iPhone is an innovative and powerful app, designed to help English-speakers interactively learn the Classical Arabic of the Arabic Bible.
• Complete grammatical explanations for every single word in the Arabic New Testament plus 29 Old Testament books (286,000 words). Tap on any word to find a wealth of lexical and syntactical information. Not only is there a dictionary entry for each word, but contextual details are included as well. Grammatical analysis is something not even the best dictionary can provide.

• Common English versions for comparison to the Arabic: KJV, NKJV, ESV and NIV.
• Verse notes help clarify difficult passages. They also point out important, unusual or interesting issues concerning the verse. Using the notes is like having an Arabic expert sitting right beside you.

Ratings and Reviews
Top Notch Arabic Bible and Word of God
You simply can't beat this app. Whereas many people will desire a phonetic spelling as well, this app is a great tool not only for learning or refreshing your Arabic, but also to advance your knowledge of the Word of God. It is also a great tool of Evangelism.
My only suggestion might be a "click and hear" option for the word-by-word translation.
Anyway, for what it is this truly deserves 6 or 7 stars, and the technical issues will all follow :)
An amazing tool
This program has many helpful tools essential for the person wanting to learn the Bible in Arabic. I know it will save me thousands of hours as it provides me quick access to the information I need to understand and use the language. The support is great, too. Thank you for developing this software! Blessings.
Great Bible App, Great Arabic App
This is an excellent app for anyone studying Arabic or the New Testament. I balked at the price at first but it's definitely worth it. As an Arabic student, it's great to be able to see the definition of each word by clicking it, and to hear each verse read aloud. The navigation is intuitive too. Incredibly useful!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
