Link to a Scripture Reference with Default Version

Making a Scripture reference is easy. Simply type the name of the book and the reference, such as:

  • John 3:16,
  • or Romans 5:1-4,
  • or Genesis 1-2.

You can also use abbreviations for the book names, such as:

  • Gen. 1:1,
  • Exo. 3-6,
  • Psa 2.

All links created in this manner will be linked to your default Bible version (see below).

Link to a Scripture Reference with a Specified Version

To create a Bible link with a version other than your default version, type the abbreviated name of the version after the reference, like this:

  • John 1:1 NIV
  • Gen. 1-2 LXX
  • Exodus 3 NRSV

The list of available versions with their abbreviations is below.

Default Bible Version and Supported Versions

Upon activation, the default Bible version is set to the English Standard Version (ESV). The default can be changed simply by changing the default Bible option on the Options/Settings --> Scripturizer page in your WordPress control panel.
