How to Use the Copy Feature

Choose a new font size and typeface

One of the BLB's goals is to facilitate the preparation of Bible studies for personal use and the local church. We know that part of this is the continual searching, copying, and pasting of verses into emails and word-processor documents. To make this easier, we have introduced a Copy Feature—this allows you to conveniently copy multiple verses in just a few clicks.

Follow these steps to take advantage of this tool:

1. When you perform a word/phrase search you will notice a checkbox next to each verse result. Click these checkboxes to select which verses you wish to copy.

Helpful Tip! Double-click one of the checkboxes to select all of the boxes. Double-click again to de-select all of the boxes.

2. Click to choose various options for how you want the verses to be copied and later displayed. For example, with the options selected (see image below) the first result would look like this in the end:

[2Cr 8:7 KJV] 7 Therefore, as ye abound in every [thing, in] faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and [in] all diligence, and [in] your love to us, [see] that ye abound in this grace also.

[Gal 5:6 KJV] 6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

3. Once you have checked all of the boxes next to the verses you wish to copy and have set the copy options, click the button (next to "Copy Options") to copy the verses to the clipboard.

What is the "Clipboard"? This is a temporary storage tool used by Mac and Windows. Whenever something is "copied" it is placed on the clipboard. Only one item (a string of text, picture, etc) can be on the clipboard at any one time. To get what is currently on the clipboard users must use the "paste" feature of their program or the standard keyboard shortcuts below.

4. Once you have clicked the copy button, you can open your word-processor document or email program and "paste" the verses in. The exact directions for doing this will vary slightly from program to program, but you may consider using the following standard keyboard shortcuts:

Windows Users: CTRL+V
Mac/Apple Users: Command+V

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
