Bible Verse of the Day

Description

This plugins shows a daily bible verse or a random bible verse from DailyVerses.net. The verses are from the NIV, KJV, ESV, NBV, BB, BGT, NBG, NVI, RVR60, RVR95, LUT and NEU translation.

It can be used as a widget, so it’s easy to install. After installing the plugin you will have two widgets: ‘Bible verse of the day’ and ‘Random bible verse’. You can also use tags: [bibleverseoftheday_niv] and [randombibleverse_niv], replace ‘niv’ with another translation if necessary, see list below.

If the connection to DailyVerses.net for some reason fails, it will show the previous verse. If there is no previous verse, the plugin will show John 3:16.

Great plugin

TheWatcher2

This plugin works perfectly and exactly as described. It also doesn't try to load any insecure links or data, thus maintaining an https secure web page if your site uses encrypted protocols. Other plugins I found try to load information from insecure sources and thus create a mixed-content situation, which is not good for SSL. Thanks for this!

Nice job.

Would be great when clicking to the bottom verse link to point to the chosen translation and not the NIV by default.
