I got this from the bible-kjv Debian package. Doubtless this could be made less tedious with a little scripting.

I have no plans to enter any more books. Please feel free to add all the rest. —Ashley Y 11:14, 16 Jan 2004 (UTC)

I want to bust this up into chapters, and put a table of contents here like the french page. Donnie Love 02:19, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

  • If no one objects, I`m going to begin to do that. Donnie Love 02:12, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
    • I would advise at this time not to do that without consulting with the members of Wikisource:WikiProject Bible. They might have some input about splitting the book up into different chapters--I believe the system we already have for the KJV Bible allows us to quite easily link to a particular passage (like Genesis 42:4) on another project with very little effort; I believe that use is fairly widespread on WP right now. My own take on this is unless the KJV actually has the divisions like the French WS is using (I don't have this version here in my house, so I can't check) then we should not organize the Bible according to that system. We should only use the system presented in the actual edition of the work, not one that we give it.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 02:20, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
    • The current format--all chapters on one page, means that the Wikipedia template sourcetext, which is being used extensively to link to KJV versions of the Bible, various Mormon texts, etc, works properly. If it gets split into seperate pages (which, if it happens, should be subpages of the book), the template will stop working... So, I think it would be a better idea if it remains as unsplit as it currently is... Jude (talk,contribs,email) 02:45, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm calling attention to the recent vandalism. I apologize for not having the time to correct it. 213.112.224.149 20:25, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
