I can't count the number of times I've stumbled on the pronunciations of different names in the Bible. And as a worship leader, I make sure that when reading passages during the service, I skip those verses that I know will display my full ignorance in front of everyone.

Finally! An app that pronounces all those difficult to say names in the old testament. Well done! - Micheal McGrew
We use this app as a fun way to teach our kids from the Bible. We take turns guessing how to pronounce a name, then learn more about that person or place. We LOVE it! - Thepremraj

Great app! Very user friendly. - Steph
Nice app! I know a lot of people who hate reading from the Bible out loud because they are afraid of mispronouncing things. This app will put their minds at ease. Instead of worrying about how to say something we can focus on what we are saying and the message of what we are reading. Thanks! - theisoms
