The Best KJV Bible for the Kindle (now paragraphed)

Features of this Kindle edition of the KJV Bible:

  • The text of this electronic edition is true to the KJV paper editions (no typos, no OCR errors! unlike other Kindle KJV editions)
  • No missing Biblical or other KJV text (for example, see the notes at the end of Paul’s epistles, which are found in the original KJV, look at Psalms’ subheadings, especially, Ps. 119)
  • Direct Verse Jump and Direct Verse Jump 2, two revolutionary new methods to open the exact verse you need in mere seconds (see below)
  • two other ways to navigate between books and chapters: (i) using a hyperlinked table of contents; and (ii) pressing the joystick right or left to move between chapters and books of the Bible. Once you learn all four navigation methods, you will be able to open any verse in your Kindle Bible as fast as (or even faster than) in your paper copy
  • correctly formatted (i.e., true formatting of the original KJV – italics, small caps in LORD, etc.)
  • the text is broken into paragraphs for cohesion of the text (if you prefer the traditional verse-per-line format please purchase  the KJV publication B002TG4P8Q from OSNOVA
  • includes original KJV translators’ notes
  • complete KJV book titles
  • it is easy to determine where you are in the Bible
  • Jesus’ words are in bold
  • as any Kindle book, the KJV Bible is fully searchable; however, when you first install the file please wait for the Kindle to index the whole Bible (about 10 minutes). The file is large and it takes a long time to index. For this reason, the DVJ navigation method will be available only after the book has been indexed

Direct Verse Jump a revolutionary navigation method using the search functionality:

In this version, all you need to do is type an abbreviated book name (see the table of contents for the complete list), then period, then chapter number, period again, and then verse number and finally press “find” twice (you need not wait for the Kindle to display the search results) and you will be looking at that particular verse in seconds. If you just need to open the first verse of any chapter then the verse number is not necessary. Do not forget periods and use only the abbreviations that are listed in the table of contents.

For example, if you wish to select chapter 3 of Genesis, you would:

  1. type the standard abbreviation for Genesis (see the table of contents for a complete list), then period, and finally number “3” in other words: ge.3
  2. click “find” twice and you are there.

For John 3:16, you type jn.3.16 and double click “find”.

Note: that you should put the chapter number even for books that have only one chapter. For example, the Epistle from Jude verse 5 would translate to “jud.1.5” and a double click.

Direct Verse Jump 2: an alternative way to jump to any verse:

While reading your OSNOVA Bible, press “Menu”, then select “Index” and type the same DVJ abbreviation as described above for the passage you want with the only difference that instead of periods use spaces (for example “jn 3 16”). This method “gives you a hint” at the abbreviation when you start typing.  So, even if you do not remember the exact DVJ abbreviation, you can find the right place.

NOTE: Many features of this publication will not work on Kindle 1, software Kindles such as Kindles for PC, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry or Android.  This edition is not TTS(text-to-speech)-friendly due to the way TTS works on the Kindle. If you would like a TTS-friendly edition of the KJV, please purchase another KJV publication from OSNOVA ASIN B0032JSL84.

    I’m having trouble visualizing the differences between the “traditional verse-per-line” format and the “paragraphed” format. Is this difference illustrated somewhere? Could a comparison be posted?


    I would love to purchase this bible but it is “Not currently available” on or – any suggestions as how I can get a copy?
