On its 25th anniversary, the online Scripture resource Bible Gateway declares it has been viewed more than 14 trillion times and reveals what its top 10 keyword searches and top five Bible verses searched and shared by its users are.
Users have viewed the online Bible search engine and Bible reading website over 14 trillion times on more than 1 trillion devices, says Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Bible Gateway, which was created in 1993.
“To give some perspective to that astronomical statistic, 1 million seconds equal 11.5 days, 1 billion seconds equal 31.75 years, and 1 trillion seconds equal 31,709.8 years,” Rachel Barach, general manager of Bible Gateway, said in a statement which adds that the website ranks No. 1 on global search engines and is part of HarperCollins Christian Publishing.
Bible Gateway, which is home to more than 200 Bible versions in more than 70 languages, reveals that “love” is the top keyword search.
The other top nine keyword searches are “faith,” “peace,” “hope,” “joy,” “prayer,” “Holy Spirit,” “grace,” “healing” and “forgiveness.”
The No. 1 Bible verse searched and shared by its users is John 3:16, which reads, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
No. 2 is Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
No. 3 is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength,” followed by Psalm 23:4, which reads, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
No. 5 is Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
