Bible search using Wildcard searches.
You can use wildcard characters ‘*’ and ‘?’ in your search terms to search for multiple words and return a larger set of search results. An asterisk character (‘*’) in a search term represents any number of characters, while a question mark (‘?’) represents any single character.
Search the Bible for exact phrases
For example, an exact phrase search for the words “God said” would only return results where the phrase “God said” appears.
To search the Scriptures for exact phrases, you need to enclose the words that form the phrase using double quotation marks.
If you are looking for a specific verse like “John 3:16”, please enter the book and chapter number first like “John 3”. Once you visit the chapter, you can scroll to the specific verse. All results are from the King James version and the Catholic Douay Rheims version.
