This is a Scripture memorization tool showing the first letters of each word. See introduction
Note: Due to API changes, only the ESV version is currently available. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Scripture Letters is a tool that aids in memorizing passages and entire chapters of the Bible. It generates a page showing the first letters of each word in a Bible passage. These letters can then help jog your memory to help you recall a verse.
For example, the letters:
F G s l t w"
help you remember:
"For God so loved the world"
This works best if you simply read the passage aloud using the letters as an aid. Note: Don't try to memorize the letters themselves. With time, you should become more familiar with the passage and no longer have to rely on the letters.
Absorbing God's Word and letting it penetrate your heart can help bring spiritual insight and life transformation. I encourage users to let this activity be a personal conversation with God rather than a mere mechanical recitation to achieve a memory goal.
Available versions are listed here.
This allows you to set a background color for the rows containing the complete verse text. It can help you distinguish between the two sections.
Section headings are grouped with either the preceeding verse or following verse in some translations. You can turn off headings if you find it distracting. Also, Scripture Letters does not display headings for the ESV text.
