is a website designed to allow easy searching of the Christian Bible in several different translations, including many in Spanish, French, and other non-English languages (see below). The website is free for anyone to use. It is part of Gospel Communications International.


Started by Nick Hengeveld in 1993 at Calvin College, the Bible Gateway was initially planned as a static HTML presentation of the Bible. In 1995, the gateway moved to the new Gospel Communications Network. The Bible Gateway is written as a cgi script in Perl.

It gradually expanded its database by acquiring the rights to more English translations and translations into more languages. Among the groups tendering the rights to disseminate their different versions of the Bible include the International Bible Society and The Lockman Foundation.
