How many times does "love" appear in the Bible?

Answer

The word "love" appears 310 times in the King James Bible, 348 times in the New American Standard Bible, 551 times in the New International Version and 538 times in the New Revised Standard Version. The extremely varied numbers for the usage of the word "love" are due in part to translation.

Some versions of the Bible, such as the New International Bible and the New Revised Standard Bible, are written for widespread readability. "Love" may have replaced other words in these versions because the exact translations may either be archaic terms or are words that few people would understand.
