The Bible Gateway now will now show up verses of the Bible if emojis are used in keyword searches.

The Bible website now allows over 330 emoji for users to look up verses. The new feature came just two days before the World Emoji Day on July 17.

There are hundreds of languages in which the Bible has been translated, but now it will permit emoji language, which is used by youngsters, to look up Bible passages.

"We're not changing any words in the text of the Bible - we're simply letting people search using emoji that they type themselves," said Stephen Smith of Bible Gateway on website blog.

A heart as the search keyword returns over 700 verses, and a church building with a heart gives 19 Bible verses about weddings. Over 242 results were returned on an emoji showing "tears of joy."

Other Bible translations for the young crowds are LOLCat Bible, which make the verses available in "lolspeak."

This comes about two months after emoji Bible was translated from the KJV and marketed as "Scripture for millennials."

"The Bible has a lot of old language, there's a lot of nuance involved in translating it - a lot of the time, you need to think beyond 1-to-1 fit," the author of emoji Bible said.

In the emoji version, about 85-90 percent of the KJV Bible is retained.

"There's a lot of trial and error, and a lot of rereading. But it's all worth the goal of making the Bible a little more approachable, to inject some levity, and to get people to look at it, with no particular agenda beyond that."
