I'm new to this forum as a user, though I've been skimming it a while...

Anyway, recently inspired by "GoogleSuggest", I decided to embark on creating an intuitive bible search.... Ideally, I'd like to support "google-like" search features, but exclusively for searching scripture. Currently, the only translation available is the KJV, as it's in the public domain. Check it out and post your feedback, especially criticism, the site's url is: http://swordseek.com

That will be helpful, thanks! You can also go to www.e-sword.net (http://www.e-sword.net) and download esword for free. You can download just about every bible version, though you'll have to pay for a few, like the NIV or the Complete Jewish Bible. Esword has a search tool similar to biblegateway, but also has a KJV+ (KJV + Strong's) which allows you to simply move your cursor over the numkber next to the word you are looking at, and the original Greek (NT) or Hebrew (Tanach) will pop up. Esword also has the Noah Websters 1828 Dictionary which is helpful, as is their extras like maps, commentaries, and the works of Josephus.

Peace,
Ken

This site has strong's concordance when you actually load the page (click on a verse when searching it, and it will load the chapter)
