Template:Bible ref

From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
Jump to: navigation, search


The {{Bible ref}} template sets up the external link to BibleGateway for providing a chapter and verse reference for any book of the Bible, in any version in any language. Use it without a verse parameter for entire chapters. For framed quotes of Bible verses, use the Bible quote template.

To use, specify the following parameters (only book and chapter are required; the others have defaults).

Example input: {{Bible ref|book=1 Corinthians|chap=1|verses=1-18|version=ASV}}

  • language = the language you want the quote in. Default is English.
  • book = the book of the Bible. Required.
  • chap = the number of the chapter. Required.
  • verses = one verse or a range of verses. Default is the entire chapter.
  • version = the version you want the quote in. Default is NIV—but if it is not specified, it will not be displayed. If you are quoting explicitly from any given version of the Bible, including the NIV, please specify it explicitly.

Example output: 1 Corinthians 1:1-18 (ASV)

This template also supports the Douay-Rheims English-language Catholic Bible, with its seven deuterocanonical books. If you specify Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach, or Baruch as the "book" parameter, the template will link to the Douay-Rheims and will ignore any version specification. The version number for the Douay-Rheims is 63.
