I am considering developing an African Bible for for e-Sword.

The translation has 3 places where 2 or 3 verses are combined into 1 verse.

  • Exo 22:2-4
  • Jdg 20:22-23
  • Jer 34:18-19

To be clear, there is no Exodus Ch. 22 verse 2, 3, or 4.  They are combined into one verse called "2-4"

 

I tested a verse called "Rev 22:22-23" with the same text as Rev 22:21.

Saved with ModulesHD, BBLI (older) as there is a foreign character.

 

This is what the test produced:

Rev 22:21  Ekisa kya Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo kibeerenga ne bonna. Amiina.
Rev 22:ý1  Ekisa kya Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo kibeerenga ne bonna. Amiina.

 

Is is possible to display a verse like "Exo 22:2-4" ? 

 

Should I list the text of "Exo 22:2-4" once under Exo 22:2 and then jump to Exo 22:5 ?

Should I list the text of "Exo 22:2-4" three times under Exo 22:2, Exo 22:3, and Exo 22:4 ?

 

Advice appreciated.  Other Bibles, like Rwanda's BYSB, also have this issue.

"2-4" means verse verse "2 until verse 4" It is rather a layout problem.

 

It is better to use the KJV 1769 standard and use blue numbering with ( ) as the esword version of the JPS.

 

 

Exo 22:1  (21:37) If a man steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it, he shall pay five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
Exo 22:2  (22:1) If a thief be found breaking in, and be smitten so that he dieth, there shall be no bloodguiltiness for him.
Exo 22:3  (22:2) If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be bloodguiltiness for him - he shall make restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
Exo 22:4  (22:3) If the theft be found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep, he shall pay double.
Exo 22:5  (22:4) If a man cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall let his beast loose, and it feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.

 

Psa 3:1  (3:1) A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. (3:2) LORD, how many are mine adversaries become! Many are they that rise up against me.

Psa 3:2  (3:3) Many there are that say of my soul: 'There is no salvation for him in God.' Selah
