Dwell: Audio Bible

Dwell, LLC
"One of my favorite apps out there. Another way to immerse myself in God's word." 
– Matt Chandler

“I can’t begin to rave enough about Dwell and how formational it is.” 
– Ann Voskamp

“In the day we’re living in, we have to have our paths lit with scripture—that’s why we love Dwell.” 
– John & Lisa Bevere

There’s nothing quite like the Dwell Bible app.

Search & Favorite Scripture
If you’re like us, you’re probably finding new and enriching passages of scripture all the time that deepen your connection with God. When you discover new passages like these, Dwell makes it simple to bookmark them as favorites so that you can easily return to them day after day. Dwell also gives you the tools to not only listen to scripture, but to memorize and meditate on it too.

Browse & Discover Scripture
Dwell also has been called "the Spotify of Scripture" because of how easy (and delightful!) it is to explore the Bible. Browse popular Bible verses or curated playlists that include select verses by theme. Use our Listening Plans to help you cultivate a habit of seeking God in Scripture every day. Or take the traditional approach: pick your favorite book and dive in!

Experience Scripture Afresh
Six beautiful recordings of the Holy Bible—each showcasing a distinct and inspiring voice—are currently available in the app (with new recordings in the works!). Switch between voices and even background music on-the-fly without losing your place in the audio! Dwell’s intimate background music, composed by Steinway Artist, Chad Lawson, will draw you into the text. Plus, Dwell also invites you to experience the Bible through art! Every book, story, playlist, and plan is accompanied by beautiful artwork.
