At first glance, John Dyer’s Texas Bible plugin looks like a joke, but there’s more to it than simple fun and games.
The Texas Bible Plugin is a Google Chrome extension that will change all the second person plurals.
Here’s an example of how it works:
Y’all & Y’all’s
I always thought it was “y’all” and “all y’all’s,” but I’m sure John did plenty of research to ensure the accuracy of this stellar browser add-on.
If the Texas version isn’t for you, perhaps one of the many linguistic options will catch your eye:

Like I said at the beginning of the post, John Dyer’s plugin isn’t all about fun and games. He goes on to explain how this really draws you into the concept of “The Individual vs. The Community.”
Take these scriptures for example:
And God said, “Behold, I have given y’all every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. Y’all shall have them for food. (Gen 1:29, tESV – Texan ESV)
For I know the plans I have for yinz, declares Yahweh, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give yinz a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11, pESV – Pittsburgh ESV)
…Work out your guys’s salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you guys, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. (Phil. 2:12-14, usESV)
Pretty cool, right?
I hope y’all enjoy this plugin as much as I do.
