I am looking for an online tool (preferably free) for storing notes on Bible passages.

I would like it to be searchable by verse or passage, like a Bible commentary would be. (Essentially that would be the end-goal.)

Ideally others would be able to access it somehow.

Does such a tool exist?

Questions on Christianity Stack Exchange are expected to relate to Christianity within the scope defined by the community. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about reopening questions here.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I'm voting to close since polls don't generally play to SE's strengths. In addition, many answers would just be simple links, which is doubly problematic. Maybe this would be a better topic to raise in Christianity Chat? – Jon Ericson Jul 17 '12 at 0:03
For what it's worth, I've had marginal luck with YouVersion. You might also look into the ESV online or the NET Bible. – Jon Ericson Jul 17 '12 at 0:06
@JonEricson Fair enough, and thanks for explaining. Personally I don't see it as a "poll" question, since it could be correctly answered with a "yes" or "no" and some justification. (I didn't ask "what are some online tools...?" or "what is the best online tool...?") It is sort of like asking "are there any Bible verses which support pacifism?" It wouldn't be considered a "poll" since it's a "yes" or "no" question which simply requires justification. – Jas 3.1 Jul 17 '12 at 0:09
I agree w/ Jon. As much as I appreciate the question, it really does not fit w/ the SE format. – Ignatius Theophorus Jul 17 '12 at 13:13
This is a question about the internet, not about Christianity. The validity of answers will change over time, making it a bad for for this format. Good question, wrong venue. – Caleb Jul 17 '12 at 13:26

Both Logos Bible Software and the Kindle Reading apps will let you highlight and take notes on just about any book in your library, including Bibles. (in the case of Logos, your notes appear by reference, so the version is less relevant. ) Logos has a free version with a few public domain bibles, so it could be considered free. Likewise, Kindle has some free Bibles. These notes are then synced. For my own work, I also throw SimpleNote and Evernote into the mix for unattached notes.

I have also used the highlighting and note taking functions on my Kindle Touch with some success. But it's still too cumbersome for my tastes. – Jon Ericson Jul 17 '12 at 18:03
