On this page, you can download free bible-related word-search puzzles in printable PDF-format. The smallest maze has 35 words, the largest one 135. Most of the words in them are taken from the Scriptures – not specific to any particular translation, but often close to the spelling in the 1769 edition of king James’ bible. These find-a-word mazes are made to be solved in printed form, with a pen. They are really written for adults, but some of them can even be used as an activity for youth. Some of them are easy; some are quite hard.

These PDF-documents are freely zoomable, for paper-size A4 or A3 or larger. Most of them are also available in a version that enables print with large letters even on A4-size paper.

Copyright: You can give these puzzles even to others, if you keep them in the shape they are on this site, including the links and date on them. (Always get the latest version of each document, directly from this site.) But, you may not in any manner re-publish these puzzles or use them on the internet or in other media; the author retains the copyright ©.

Some notes on these word-mazes.

These puzzles are made for adults. Some of them can even be used as an activity for youth, but they are too difficult for children in their first school years.

These puzzles do not contain any “hidden messages” consisting of “left-over letters”.

Printing advice: If you use Adobe Reader for printing these puzzles, look for the alternative “fit within printable area” and select it, so that the puzzle will cover the whole paper.

Please note that these word-mazes are meant as brain-teasers, and not as biblical, geographical or historical lessons. But, as many of them contain names and places that most likely are not familiar to all people (but which are mentioned in the Bible), perhaps they can serve as a reminder that we all should keep studying the Scriptures. A suggestion: Take one of these puzzles, and your bible-study material, and find out who, what and where the persons, places and things that are mentioned in the puzzle, really were.
