Upload a number of English translation of the Bible.

Style guide[edit]

Hosted Bible versions, like any other work on Wikisource, should follow the WS Style Guide, and any project-specific style decisions should be outlined on the Index talk page.

The following conventions are used across (most) hosted Bible versions:

  • Each book of the Bible is put on a single subpage, rather than split by chapter or into sections.
    • If a particular Bible splits a book into multiple books, e.g. Ezra-Nehemiah vs. Ezra and Nehemiah, follow the convention used in that particular Bible.
  • Chapter headers make use of {{Chapter}}, and verse numbers are rendered using {{Verse}}.
