How to Look Up a Bible Verse

Howdy Friend!

The Bible says that God’s word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path (Psalm 119:105).  If you were ever wondering how to find a Bible scripture, here’s a bit of help.

Sample scripture citation: John 3:16

  1. Find the Book. In the above scripture citation, “John” refers to which book of the Bible the verse is found in. If you don’t know where the book is, go to the beginning of the Bible and look at the table of contents to find it.
  2. Find the Chapter.  “3” refers to the chapter in the book of John where the verse is located. The number before the colon will always refer to the chapter of the book.
  3. Find the exact verse. “16” refers to the verse in chapter 3 where the reference is located. The number after the colon will always refer to the verse in that chapter. Once you find it, you have your verse right next to it.

Common Variations

  • For a single verse (John 3:16)
  • For a range of verses (John 3:16–17)
  • For multiple disjointed verses (John 6:14, 44)
