Number of Bible verses in the ESV New Testament

Number of New Testament verses in various Bible verses

How many verses are in the New Testament??Oddly, there isn’t a definitive answer online about how many verses are in the ESV New Testament. says there are 7956 verses. But that’s based on the NJB version. This same page lists the number of verses for various versions:

  • 7957: NAB
  • 7957: KJV
  • 7957: REB
  • 7957: NIV
  • 7958: RSV
  • 7957: NRSV

The ESV is missing from this list. I’m assuming the ESV has the same number of verses as the NIV. Right?
