    • [Book] [Chapter]:[Verse]
    • [Book] [Chapter]:[Verse]-[verse]
  2. Where [Book] can be a full name or an abbreviation, with prefix as applicable. Note that prefixes can be in several formats:
    • 1, 2, 3
    • I, II, II
    • First, Second, Third
    • 1st, 2nd, 3rd
  3. Scripturizer will recognize most common book abbreviations.
    • NOTE: All abbreviated references to Judges should include the letter ‘g’ in order to differentiate between Judges and Jude.
  4. Scripturizer can also recognize translation acronyms following Scripture references:
    • [Reference] [Translation]
    • [Reference] ([Translation])
