Here is a brief explanation of the link structure. The average link to Scripture is a combination of three parts: header, book and chapter, and then verse. Using the example of a link to Hebrews 11:13, we will try to explain each portion that you might freely link to any verse in the Bible from our site.
Here follows a visual breakdown of the typical link:
First, the link as a whole:
Next, the header:
This bit (http://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/) never changes when linking to Scripture. Some day in the future, we may include the ability to use versions other than the KJV, but for the present, that's all we've got for primary navigation.
Followed by the book and chapter:
This section is comprised of four parts in the following order: [book abbreviation]/ + [book abbreviation again] + [three-digit chapter reference] + .cfm.
The book abbreviation is a three-character reference to the desired book in Scripture (in our example, Hbr). Click here to view the list of abbreviations. The chapter reference works on a three-digit system: no matter the chapter, it is always represented by three numbers. In our case, the eleventh chapter of Hebrews is represented by 011. Double digit-chapters are always preceded by a zero (0) and single-digit chapters will always be preceded by two zeros (00). Books with only one chapter are represented as 001 (for example, and verse in Jude would be represented as Jud/Jud001.cfm.
Then simply add the .cfm file externsion to your link and you will be able to link to any book or chapter in Scripture.
Finally, the verse reference:
To link to a verse in the book and chapter you've selected, simply add a pound sign (#) and the verse number immediately after the .cfm and you're ready to go.
Since the proof of the pudding is in the tasting, try it out:
