What Does the Bible Say About…

About This Topical Bible

This Bible is a mashup of the Yahoo! and ESV Bible web services. It searches the Internet for the topics that interest people, many of which you’d never find in a traditional topical Bible. Then it shows relevant verses.

Vote for or suggest verses that you think are especially relevant for a topic. Help improve it.

Searching for a word will automatically add it.

Please note that I didn’t come up with the list of topics or suggest the verses; people’s actual behavior has shaped them. I moderate some of the more offensive topics, however.

The topical data and the raw counts are available for download (updated weekly).

A Note of Caution

Always check the context of a verse; that’s why the links are there. The context of a verse might put a very different slant on what the verse seems to say. The Bible isn’t a Magic 8-Ball or a fortune cookie, so don’t treat it like one, OK?
