!This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


Plugin finds Bible references in your posts and changes them for the actual Bible text from any of 38 different translations in 14 languages.


You must download wp-bible.zip and unzip the content to /wp-content/plugins/ directory. Then you must activate the plugin in the Plugins menu of your blog's Administration panel.

The default bible version is World English Bible - WEB, if you want to change that, go to Options | WP-Bible and choose a version you want.

Using another plugin that does a similar thing is not advised.


When your plugin is activated just type the usual biblical references and the plugin will find them.

Usually they look like:

  • Mat 5:1-11
  • Mat 5:1-11.14.20
  • Mat 5:1-11.14-16;6,1-3 and similar

You can use many different book names, let's see just an example for Gospel of Matthew: Mt, Mat, Matt, Matej, Matevž, Matthew, Matteüs, Matteus, Matthäus, Mateo. As you can see not only English names are supported. Please let me know if you'd like to add other book names that the plugin doesn't recognize.
