How to Use the (Commentaries or L-Button)

1. To select a commentary on any passage of Scripture, first go to that portion of Scripture in the Blue Letter Bible using the search box on our home page.

2. Once on the page with the desired passage, you will notice that each verse of Scripture is prefaced by the button or an assortment of buttons (generally , , , , , and/or ). The button is for a listing of available commentaries (hence the "L" for "listing"). So hover over Tools and click on the button as illustrated below.

3. This will give you a listing of audio, video, and text commentaries that pertain to the selected verse (see image below).

4. Now you need only click on the commentary desired to be simply whisked to the text, audio, or video commentary you have selected.

If you want to keep your Bible page and not lose your place simply right-click on the desired commentary and either open it in a new tab or a new window as shown above.

We hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and have found it helpful in understanding the ins and outs of the commentaries tool.

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.
