The Holy Bible - the inspiration for The Binding of Isaac.

The original The Binding of Isaac game, the Rebirth remake, and four DLC expansions contain lots of references from the Holy Bible in Christianity. Full organized verses are listed here from Old Testament to New Testament, and one verse from the Apocrypha. Most of the verses are from the first English version of the Bible, the King James Version (KJV), while some are from other different versions including:
  • Common English Bible (CEB)
  • New International Version (NIV)
  • Douay-Rheims Bible (DRB)
  • English Standard Version (ESV)
  • New Living Translation (NLT)
  • New American Standard Bible (NASB)
  • New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Note: Half of the verses from different Bibles beside the King James Version are underlined. While Jesus Christ is talking, His words are red (New Testament only).
