There are some 7900 languages in the world, many of which have Bible resources that have been created. Those languages are shown here, each on their unique page. Although some languages do not have resources associated with them yet, new Bibles are being translated faster than ever. Hundreds of content creators are creating Bible resources and films faster than ever imagined.
The world's languages can be displayed and sorted by country, population, ISO code, or the number of Bible resource links that occur in Find-A-Bible (FAB). The languages are named and arranged by SIL's ISO code. Much of the information on each particular language page is derived from Wikipedia, Joshua Project, The Glotologue, and others. For a more comprehensive and authoritative study of each language, please refer to the SIL Ethnologue - the world's foremost authority on languages.
Where there is content in a particular language, you can view either BIBLES, FILMS or RESOURCES from the tabs on each language page.
Also provided from the LANGUAGES page are some handy LANGUAGE FAMILY MAPS that may assist in doing some basic research.
With deep gratitude to such Bibles agencies as Wycliff Bible Translators, Global Recording Network, Faith Comes by Hearing, The Jesus Film Project and quite a few others, Bible resources in new languages are being added all the time.
