Free Douay-Rheims Bible Software

Welcome to! Here you can download free software containing the following:
1. The Douay-Rheims translation of the Bible, along with the notes by Bishop Richard Challoner. (Click here to learn why I chose the Douay-Rheims version.)
2. Definitions of unfamiliar words in the Bible. Simply click on a word to see a brief definition.
3. Cross-references between verses.
4. A concordance that lets you look up any single word or multiple words. (What's a concordance?)

There's no catch. The software is free, and in the public domain (with no warranty). It's now written entirely in HTML (with JavaScript), so it should run on any computer, smartphone, or Android tablet that has a Web browser. No Internet connection is needed to run the program, because all the files are local, residing on your device.

There's nothing hidden in the software (e.g., spyware) - you can examine the HTML files to assure yourself of that. I simply wanted to make my favorite translation of the Bible as easy to use as possible by making it accessible on your device, even when you don't have an Internet connection. I also wanted to make it a little less difficult to read by providing brief definitions of unfamiliar words.

Downloading and Installing the Software
1. Tap or click here to download (less than 5 MB) to your computer, smartphone, or Android tablet. The software was last updated on 2015-Jul-22.
2. Tap or double click on your device. It will unpack into 1,451 files. (Don't be concerned if some of the file names appear cryptic.)
3. Then simply tap, double click, or point your browser to bible.htm to start the program.
4. If you have any questions, please contact me. I'm here to help!
