Literal Word is a NASB Bible app designed to provide straightforward access to the word of God.

Literal Word exists to promote the word of God and not much else. No ads. No articles. No logging in. No distractions. Simply the Word. We believe that the Bible contains the most important information that anyone could ever come across and that accessing it should be as easy as possible.

This belief has driven every decision we've made designing Literal Word. The NASB translation of the Bible was selected for faithfully utilizing a word-for-word instead of a thought-for-thought translation method. Each passage of Scripture is clean, customizable, and convenient to access, allowing the reader to focus exclusively on the God-breathed content. Word searches are simple but powerful, featuring a unique visual interface for organizing results with surgical precision, and complete lexicons for original Hebrew and Greek words can be viewed with just a couple taps.

All of Literal Word is offered free of charge, and all of it works without an internet connection. It all comes down to the idea that a straightforward approach to a Bible app maximizes attention to the word of God.

Great NASB app!

I really like the design of this and NASB is my preferred translation. I love the original language feature and it’s set up really well. My only suggestion is in the search feature— when I search for a word, the search section covers up the results a bit until I click the result space itself. Super minor adjustment. Fantastic app overall!

Easy to use app with a literal translation

I love reading the in NASB Version of the Bible. It is not only the most literal translation but has great features like the capitalization of pronouns referring to the deity of God. This app is very simple and easy to use with a clean layout. Honestly, I love reading the Word while waiting in line at places like the grocery store. Being on my phone I’ll have this Bible with me everywhere!

Simple, Exactly How I Wanted It

The Bible is all I need and want in a bible app. There is no need for extraneous and complex features which often slows the load times. Others with such things often crash for this very reason. This app is exactly what I have been looking for, for a very long time - a practical bible that loads quickly and a few simple features.
