The Scriptures

"Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, save it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah, who layeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit, that he may bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, being the first that should rise."

2 Nephi 2:8


As part of the Mormon Documentation Project, this project's goal is to provide the LDS canon of scriptures in a standardized format for third-party applications.

The Scriptures included are all the standard works of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

King James Version of the Holy Bible

Modern Revelation and Translated Scriptures


Downloads of the latest release are available here:

The schemas for the databases are intentionally both normalized and non-normalized, which is why you'll see seemingly duplicate tables. This is so that people who want to jump right in, can start running queries against the scriptures table, while those looking for other indexing or more complex queries can use the other ones.


Downloads of the previous release are available as well for Microsoft Access 97, Microsoft Access 2000, Microsoft Access 2002, SQLite 2, TeX, and XML.
