VerseBot is a reddit bot that quotes Bible verses when asked to.

Need a verse quoted for a Biblical discussion on reddit and don't feel like copying/pasting the verse? Let VerseBot do it for you! Unlike many of the "annoying" bots out there on reddit, VerseBot only replies when somebody asks it to. If you want Versebot to quote a piece of scripture for you, simply surround it in brackets ([])!

Originally VerseBot started out as a personal project that was never intended to be released. However, after a huge response from an announcement I made, I decided to make it public. Ever since, VerseBot has evolved and gradually become more powerful. At first, VerseBot only supported 4 translations, and now it supports over 160!

VerseBot is still in development, and will be for the forseeable future. Have an idea for something to put in the bot? Let me know!

One of the things being developed most recently is a statistics tracker that records information about what books, translations, and subreddits people are using VerseBot with. The rest of this website will be used to display those statistics. I hope you find them as interesting as I do!



VerseBot supports the Old Testament, New Testament, and Deuterocanon (aka Apocrypha).

Some translations only support the Old Testament, some only support the New Testament, and many don't have the deuterocanon. BibleGateway's versions page is a good resource for finding which translations have which books.

As of May 8, 2014, VerseBot supports over 160 translations in over 60 languages!

Most of this is thanks to BibleGateway, which has an awesome collection of translations in many different languages. ESV -- the default translation for VerseBot -- is by far used the most out of all the translations, due to it being the default (duh).

Below are some charts that show which translations are popular on reddit.

VerseBot runs on all of reddit, meaning that any subreddit can use it.

VerseBot used to be limited to a group of about 10 subreddits, but has since grown to being active across the whole reddit site. Since being made "completely free", VerseBot has been used in many different subreddits.

Below are some charts that show which subreddits use VerseBot the most.

NOTE: Some of these subreddits trigger VerseBot by mistake, so the statistics are not completely accurate.
