References to the Bible (book, chapter, and verse) should appear as in-text citations and without a corresponding entry in a bibliography.  For example, (1 Kgs 10:12)

The in-text citation should include the abbreviation of the version used, e.g. (1 Kgs. 10:12 NIV), if no version is specified elsewhere, or a different version than the one stated in the Preface or a footnote is being referenced.

For more examples citing biblical, classical, patristic, or medieval sources, see our Writing and Style Guide.
