Setting your Language

STEPBible initially uses the language set in your browser. The STEPBible Language setting controls what language STEPBible will use to display menus, labels, and other supporting text.

Additionally, your language setting determines which language versions STEPBible offers you on the Bible version / Commentaries menu.  Click here for more about Opening Bibles and Commentaries.

To set your language
  • Click on the Language icon at the right of the Search bar.
  • Choose your language preference. 


Changing the Opening Language preference will return you to the default STEPBible page so it is a good idea to set the language preference before you start a Bible text search.
