Verses (belong to chapters)

Verses are the smallest unit of organization within the ABS Bible texts. Verses belong to chapters.

List

Book listings may only be requested in the context of their chapter parent.

GET /chapters/#{version_id}:#{book_id}.#{chapter_number}/verses.xml?include_marginalia=true

Returns a list of all verses for the chapter resource specified by version, book, and chapter number. The available version IDs can be listed with the versions endpoint. The book ID is specified with the OSIS normative abbreviation for the book. The chapter number is a number that is a valid chapter in the book and version.

Note: when the include_marginalia parameter is set to true, the response will include footnotes and crossreferences and the Bible text will include marginalia markers.

References

GET /chapters/#{version_id}:#{book_id}.#{chapter_number}/verses.xml?start=1&end=14

Returns a collection of verses for the reference specified by the start and end querystring parameters. The available version IDs can be listed with the versions endpoint. The book ID is specified with the OSIS normative abbreviation for the book. The chapter number is a number that is a valid chapter in the book and version.

Note: start and end parameters represent the verse number attribute.

Note: if the verse is a bridged verse (e.g. in The Message, Genesis 1:16-19 is combined into one verse), specifying a start or end anywhere within the verse will return the whole thing (e.g. specifying eng-MSG:Gen.1, start=17, end=18 will return the whole verse Genesis 1:16-19).

GET /verses/#{version_id}:#{book_id}.#{chapter_number}.#{verse_number}.xml?include_marginalia=true

Returns the specific verse resource with given version, book, chapter number, and verse number. The available version IDs can be listed with the versions endpoint. The book ID is specified with the OSIS normative abbreviation for the book. The chapter number is a number that is a valid chapter in the book and version. The verse number is a number that is a valid verse in the chapter and version.

Note: when the include_marginalia parameter is set to true, the response will include footnotes and crossreferences and the Bible text will include marginalia markers.
