If you’ve ever struggled to fit your Bible into an already overflowing bag, you’re in luck. Measuring just 4.76mm each side, the world’s smallest Bible has been released.

The Jerusalem Nano Bible company has developed a tiny chip containing all 27 books of the New Testament, written in the original Greek.

Each printed letter has a width of about 0.18 microns, or 18 millionths of a metre, so you’ll need a fairly powerful microscope if you fancy using it during your quiet times.

Made from a silicon wafer, it has been designed to be embedded into jewellery and watches, so purchasers can carry the sacred text wherever they go.

“Our aim is to be able to mass produce it and cater to really every pocket. Because this application, the smallest Bible in the world…can be applied to infinite possibilities in the jewellery industry,” David Almog, of the Jerusalem Nano Bible company, said.

Russell Ellwanger of TowerJazz Semiconductor, which provided the technology for the product, added that its creation is “extremely significant.”

Text contained on the nano Bible. Each letter measures 0.18 microns wide.
The company, which is planning to create a nano-sized Old Testament in the future, is currently waiting to be validated for the Guinness Book of Records. The previous record holder measures 2.8 x 3.1 x 1 cm.
