    Psalms 119
    •   Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.
    •   Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
    •   They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
    •   Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
    •   O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
    •   Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
    •   I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
    •   I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
    •   Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
    • 10   With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
    • 11   Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    • 12   Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.
    • 13   With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
    • 14   I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
    • 15   I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
    • 16   I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
    • 17   Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
    • 18   Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
    • 19   I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
    • 20   My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.
    • 21   Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.
    • 22   Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.
    • 23   Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.
    • 24   Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.
    • 25   My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
    • 26   I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.
    • 27   Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
    • 28   My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
    • 29   Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.
    • 30   I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.
    • 31   I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O Lord, put me not to shame.
    • 32   I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.
    • 33   Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
    • 34   Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
    • 35   Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
    • 36   Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
    • 37   Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
    • 38   Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.
    • 39   Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.
    • 40   Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.
    • 41   Let thy mercies come also unto me, O Lord, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
    • 42   So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
    • 43   And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
    • 44   So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
    • 45   And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
    • 46   I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
    • 47   And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
    • 48   My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
    • 49   Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
    • 50   This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
    • 51   The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.
    • 52   I remembered thy judgments of old, O Lord; and have comforted myself.
    • 53   Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
    • 54   Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
    • 55   I have remembered thy name, O Lord, in the night, and have kept thy law.
    • 56   This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
    • 57   Thou art my portion, O Lord: I have said that I would keep thy words.
    • 58   I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.

    • 74   They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
    • 75   I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.

    • 79   Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.

  • King James Version (kjv - 3.1)


    English (en)

    This is the King James Version of the Holy Bible (also known as the Authorized Version) with embedded Strong's Numbers. The rights to the base text are held by the Crown of England.
    The Strong's numbers in the OT were obtained from The Bible Foundation: The NT Strong's data was obtained from The KJV2003 Project at CrossWire: These mechanisms provide a useful means for looking up the exact original language word in a lexicon that is keyed to Strong's numbers.

    Special thanks to the volunteers at Bible Foundation for keying the Hebrew/English data and of Project KJV2003 for working toward the completion of synchronizing the English phrases to the Stephanas Textus Receptus, and to Dr. Maurice Robinson for providing the base Greek text with Strong's and Morphology.
    We are also appreciative of formatting markup that was provided by Michael Paul Johnson at Their time and generosity to contribute such for the free use of the Body of Christ is a great blessing and this derivitive work could not have been possible without these efforts of so many individuals.
    Version 3.1 incorporates a more recent set of TR data from Dr. Maurice Robinson than was used in all the earlier versions. The TR data was obtained in 2016 from the Greek New Testament sources website
    This was integrated into the OSIS source files of an intermediate version 2.9a hosted at
    It is in this spirit that we in turn offer the KJV2003 Project text freely for any purpose.
    Any copyright that might be obtained for this effort is held by CrossWire Bible Society © 2003-2023 and CrossWire Bible Society hereby grants a general public license to use this text for any purpose.

Basic Hash Usage Explained

At getBible, we've established a robust system to keep our API synchronized with the Crosswire project's modules. Let me explain how this integration works in simple terms.

We source our Bible text directly from the Crosswire modules. To monitor any updates, we generate "hash values" for each chapter, book, and translation. These hash values serve as unique identifiers that change only when the underlying content changes, thereby ensuring a tight integration between getBible and the Crosswire modules.

Every month, an automated process runs for approximately three hours. During this window, we fetch the latest Bible text from the Crosswire modules. Subsequently, we compare the new hash values and the text with the previous ones. Any detected changes trigger updates to both our official getBible hash repository and the Bible API for all affected translations. This system has been operating seamlessly for several years.

Once the updates are complete, any application utilizing our Bible API should monitor the hash values at the chapter, book, or translation level. Spotting a change in these values indicates that they should update their respective systems.

Hash values can change due to various reasons, including textual corrections like adding omitted verses, rectifying spelling errors, or addressing any discrepancies flagged by the publishers maintaining the modules at Crosswire.

The Crosswire initiative, also known as the SWORD Project, is the "source of truth" for getBible. Any modifications in the Crosswire modules get reflected in our API within days, ensuring our users access the most precise and current Bible text. We pledge to uphold this standard as long as getBible exists and our build scripts remain operational.

We're united in our mission to preserve the integrity and authenticity of the Bible text. If you have questions or require additional information, please use our support system. We're here to assist and will respond promptly.

Thank you for your understanding and for being an integral part of the getBible community.
