 Bible without verses or chapter divisions

Concerning the Bible without verses or chapters

I looked for a KJV or NASB without the divisions so that the thoughts intended by the writers aren't as broken. I think there was a KJV put out, in paragraph form, but it still showed the verses above the text. If anyone wants it, I did take all 4 gospels and cut out the paragraphs and verses. It really did help me to read without all the breaks. If anyone wants me to e-mail those files to you, just let me know. They are in Microsoft Works, but it should transfer to Word or maybe even other word processing software.

Intresting, what version of the bible is it in?

the gospels from which I've deleted chapter and verse are in the KJV

If you want the copies of them, just give me an e-mail address to mail them to

 Re: Bible without verses

Hey guys,

I've been looking for a bible without verse numbers for awhile and came across this version. It's a multi-volume set. Has a nice color and not too big in terms of size. Here are some links if you're interested:

There is this NIV Bible; they took all the chapter and verses out:

The Narrated Bible in Chronological Order (NIV) [Hardcover]

God bless,

PS: I did see this for those who have a Kindle:

They have the following in KJV and ASV for $4.99:

King James Bible (KJV) (TTS-friendly; no verse numbers) [Kindle Edition]

 Re: Bible without verses or chapter divisions

I've actually been working on the same thing - taking the NASB gospels and taking out verse divisions (I've left the chapters in with mine, and footnoted the OT references). It's a lot of work though! I would really appreciate if you could send me your version of the KJV Gospels without chapter and verse divisions. I can send you the book of Matthew in NASB (still working on the other three books).

my email is:

If you send me your contact info, I'll send you Matthew (and the other three if/when I finish them).

I have actually memorized (in a natural way) by reading certain patterns in the Bible where the chapters and verses are concerned.

Isaiah 40:3 is the same as 40th book of the Bible, chapter 3:3.

"The voice of him crying in the wilderness". Matt 3:3

Isaiah's 66 chapters matching the 66 books of the Bible.

First 39 chapters have to do with judgement and law and mostly reflect the OT while the next 27 deal more with NT themes. Book 66 in Isaiah has themes of Revelation in it while book 1 reflects Genesis.

There are many more patterns like this that my mind just naturally categorizes.

I do have a chronological Bible but could never really get into it. I think if you are able to break old patterns then you may be able to adapt to the Bible without chapters or verses.

I'll tell you one thing, if it was the only Bible I had, I would adapt right away! Though, I probably would try to use my memory to write in the chapters and verses. :-)

Old patterns are hard to root up.

Interesting. I use esword. I had a quick go at playing with the font colour of the verse number (trying to see if I can change it to match the colour of the screen background - and thus make it 'disappear'). No success. Maybe someone with more IT skills might be interested to explore.. .
