I do have password that has been encrypted with Bcrypt and the salt . Is it possible if I want to decrypt the password into normal text ?

    No, there is no way to get the original string without exhaustively trying all possible inputs. This is the entire point of password hashes like bcrypt. Commented Sep 18, 2018 at 3:12

bcrypt is not an encryption function, it's a password hashing function, relying on Blowfish's key scheduling, not its encryption. Hashing are mathematical one-way functions, meaning there is no* way to reverse the output string to get the input string.

*of course only Siths deal in absolutes and there are a few attacks against hashes. But none of them are "reversing" the hashing, AFAIK.
