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.

Catholic-Resources.org 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?
