Word Counts: How Many Times Does a Word Appear in the Bible

The table below gives some word counts for four popular versions of the Bible. There is no single correct way to translate the ancient Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek Bible manuscripts into English.   The grammar, structure, and style of those languages are very different from English, and a literal word-for-word translation is not possible.  Therefore, the number of times a particular word appears is usually different for each version of the Bible.
