The Word for Wednesday, 19 December 2018

The jailer called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Psalm 34:19 (ESV)

About us

Who we are

We are about twenty Christians from all over the world.

Some of us formerly published the "Watchwords" of the Moravian Church, starting in the 1990s for PCs, later for websites and mobile devices. We now use our software for our own selection of daily Bible verses.

The Word

  • two complementary Bible verses for each day of the year
  • arranged on multiple lines for readability
  • on your website
  • on your smartphone
  • on your computer
  • as screen saver
  • in various Bible editions
  • in several languages
  • free of cost

The Idea: "Bible 2.0"

The term "2.0" stands for "working together online".

This is the idea of project "Bible 2.0":

  • Christians share their knowledge of the Bible via Internet, to find complementary Bible verses,
  • following the reformatory principle “Sacra scriptura sui ipsius interpres” – “Scripture explains itself”...
  • ... like when I write down a cross-reference in the side margin of my Bible.
  • What Christians find for one language shall also benefit readers of other languages and Bible editions.

Starting with 2018, we take the Bible verse pairs of The Word from a pool of verses collected by our team.
