The Word Widget

Shows two Bible sayings per day: "The Word" by project Bible 2.0, available in over 10 languages, got remotely for each day

The plugin provides a widget which you can place into one of the widget areas provided by your theme (in the WordPress admin area: Appearance | Widgets).

The widget configuration retrieves the list of available Bible editions of the current year remotely from http://bible2.net and lets you select one Bible edition. On each day, the widget retrieves the two sayings for the day from bible2.net and displays them.
