The most popular Bible app in the world has released the most highlighted, bookmarked, and shared verse for 2018. 

YouVersion Bible App says that in 2018 Isaiah 41:10 was the go-to verse. 

The verse reads: “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand" (NIV).

YouVersion Bible App has been downloaded over 350 million times since launching in 2008. 

“This year’s data shows people worldwide are continuing to turn to the Bible in search of comfort, encouragement, and hope,” said Bobby Gruenewald, Pastor, Innovation Leader for Life.Church and YouVersion founder, in a release. “We’re humbled that 10 years after its release, people continue to use the YouVersion Bible App in record numbers to connect with God’s Word.”

The release also said that Bible engagement reached new heights this year as YouVersion data showed a 27 per cent increase in daily active users compared to last year.

In fact, the YouVersion community listened to 4.2 billion chapters and read more than 27.2 billion chapters of the Bible this year, which is a year-over-year increase of 40 percent and 62 percent.

In Canada, the most highlighted, bookmarked, and shared verse for 2018 was Jeremiah 29:11: "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'" (NIV).
