Hallelujah, someone finally did it: For the low, low cost of $2.99, you can now download the full King James Bible translated into emoji, the Guardian reports.

The translation, which covers all 66 books of the King James Bible, has helpfully replaced words like "God" with the halo emoji, the Holy Ghost with the spooky ghost emoji, and probably makes ample use of the prayer hands. Fans of both scripture and cartoon internet hieroglyphics can download the e-book from iTunes, or just read excerpts on the Bible Emoji Twitter.

The book's website also features a nifty translation tool that can take your favorite Bible verse and spit out its emoji equivalent, so people can spread the Good Word all over social media.

The emoji translator—who prefers to be identified only as the cool-dude-with-sunglasses emoji—told the Guardian he spent six months creating the new version, which associates 200 different words with 80 emojis for a pretty on-point interpretation.
