ESV on iPod Kindle

Yup.  I didn’t believe it.  But when Bert told me you could get the ESV Bible for free on the iPod Touch or iPhone with Kindle, I went online today to check it out.  And yes, it is true.  It is not the prettiest interface for the Bible, but hey, it is free and it is the full version of a solid, present-day translation.

So here’s what you do:

  1. Download and install Kindle from the iTunes App Store.
  2. Launch the app and login with your Amazon account (I hear it is only doable with a US account).
  3. Go to the ESV page on, and you will see a buy option (for the low low price of $0.00) allowing it to send directly to your iPod Touch or iPhone.
  4. Relaunch the Kindle app and it should be in your book list.

That’s it!  Enjoy.  :)
