Nepali Bibles Online

This page is not an exhaustive list of Nepali Bible translations, nor online Nepali resources which are Christian. It is a short list of Bible texts or Bible audio in Nepali which are available online and which I have used.


  • Nepali New Revised (NRV) and Simple Nepali (SN) Versions
    Source: Nepal Bible Society. Available by request or in Nepali Christian bookstores in SWORD format. For help using these texts on macOS and iOS, see Installing Nepal Bible Society’s E-Bible on macOS and iOS.

    YouVersion also has the NBS NRV and SN through the website for online reading and companion app on mobile phones for offline downloading.

  • Easy-to-Read Version (ERV) Nepali Bible
    Source: Bible League International. PDF downloads for Old Testament and New Testament.

    The ERV is translated by World Bible Translation Center, which uses an accelerated translation process. This process has resulted in problematic translations in other languages. For another version in easy language, consider Nepal Bible Society’s Simple Nepali translation.
