How many bibles in your house?

I was looking for a a particular bible verse with an explanation. I pulled out my student bible, which is right next to my NRSB. I used to read the KJV until I learned a little more about it. I kept it so I can reference particular translations mistakes and I have a pocket bible given to me by someone passing them out. It occurred to me I have 4 copies of what could be argued as the same book, yet I use them in many different ways.

Does anyone else have a lot of bibles? Or is just book of the Lord all you need?

  • We have several. I keep one by the computer,cause I'm always looking up verses. We both keep our study Bibles on the table,cause we read them every morning, I have one in my purse, my Mom's, my son's in his room, and we have several old family Bibles.

  • I'm looking at 4 just in this room. Plus 2 reference books, a word-study book and 2 Bible journals. Got 1 in the car, 1 in DHs frac bag, 1 in the office and a few still put away. I have lots, and many translations. I never use just one for study.

  • i have no idea, but its a lot! i have 2 teen Bibles from high school (both NIV), one a study & one a devo. my DH & i both got Bibles from our churches for graduation, NAS. i have a Spanish/English Bible thanks to a class i took where the teacher made us by it, i think its NIV. for another class DH & i both had to buy an NES b/c it was the professors preferred translation. we have a family Bible thats NKJV, but we never use it (its huge). and then my DH's grandfather gave him a Message Bible for college grad.

    so thats...9 Bibles. we use the NES & the NIV for the most part...easier to read

  • Just one (King James) because it is a family heirloom and has been in my family since 1872.  It has all the births, deaths and marriages of my ancestors and has been passed down from namesake to namesake.
