Format: {{bibleverse|BOOK#|BOOKNAME|c:v-c:v|SOURCE_CODE}}

An alternative is also sometimes used: {{bibleverse|BOOKNAME|BOOK#|c:v-c:v|SOURCE_CODE}} . Note, though, that if no book number is relevant, the blank argument must be there (see Genesis example below).

Example: {{bibleverse|1|Samuel|3:16-4:18|31}}
produces a link to the NIV translation (31 in the source list as linked below): 1 Samuel 3:16-4:18

NOTE: You can use shorthand for the names, such as Sam or Deut. Also, verse references may be simplified (eg, no range or entire chapter).

If there is only one book, leave that part blank.

For example: {{bibleverse||Genesis|1:15-16|HE}}
produces: Genesis 1:15-16

DO NOT put any spaces anywhere in the template.

An alternative version of this template is available that does not include the book name: Template:Bibleverse-nb. It can be used to create lists of verses, eg

[[Exodus]] {{bibleverse-nb||Exodus|1:2-3|HE}}; {{bibleverse-nb||Exodus|13:10|HE}}
produces: Exodus 1:2-3; 13:10
