ESV Audio Update: Verses

Today we’re unveiling a big update to the audio New Testament at the ESV Online Edition. You can now listen to as little as a single verse at a time.

Previously you could only listen to complete chapters–if you wanted to hear, say, John 3:16-17, you had to listen to John 3:1-15 first. No longer: listen to John 3:16-17. Or maybe you want to hear the verses in the popular evangelistic tool The Romans Road? No problem.

You’ll see a “Listen” link whenever you’re browsing a passage in the New Testament. Follow the link to hear the verses. The Beatitudes are a good place to start.

Bible Gateway provides the bandwidth for the audio, so you’ll need a recent version of the free RealPlayer installed to access the files.

We listened to the entire audio New Testament and marked by hand where each verse begins and ends. We plan a technical writeup in the near future. Please email webmaster@gnpcb.org if you find any errors or have any problems.

Does this feature mean that Verse-of-the-day podcasts are coming soon? Yes it does–they’re coming Friday, May 6.
