Android - Saved Passages

Saved passages are a useful tool as you study the Bible and come across a verse or phrase you want to save for future reference. Adding a saved passage allows you to "bookmark" a verse without adding additional marking to the text like you would with a note or highlight. 

Verse or Text Based

There are two ways to create Saved Passages within our app: by selecting a word or phrase (word based) or by tapping on a verse number (verse based). Saved Passages are always associated with the Bible translation they were added in regardless of the method used to create them.


Create a Saved Passage

You can create a saved passage when you're viewing text in your app. As mentioned above, Saved Passages can be tied either to a verse or a word or phrase. Here are the steps to create a saved passage:

  • Tap a verse number or select text.

  • Tap Save from the pop-up menu.

Edit a Saved Passage

Once you have created a saved passage, it can be located in the Menu under Saved Passages. To edit a saved passage, find the individual saved passage you want to edit, tap and hole, and choose Edit. Here you can change the title ('label'), add or edit the tags, and assign the note to a category. The easiest way to do each of these is to tap the Settings gear in the upper right corner and tap the action in the pop-up window. You can also follow these steps to edit a saved passage:


  1. Tap in the box that says 'Label' and delete and re-enter the title.
  2. Tap '+ Add Tag' to add a tag.
  3. Tap Category to assign the saved passage to a category. 

Delete a Saved Passage

You can delete a saved passage by following these steps:

  • Tap Menu.
  • Tapped Saved Passages.
  • Locate the saved passage you want to delete.
  • Tap and hold the Saved Passage. 
  • Tap 'Delete'.
  • Confirm that you would like to delete the Saved Passage.
