Set Bible Preferences

Allows you to set your preferred language, version/translation, and more. Available preferences include:


The language to use for Bible reference names and content (e.g. "Salmos 1" instead of "Psalms 1"). Please note that this preference does not impact the names of the extension's commands or other informational text.


The Bible version/translation to use for Bible content (e.g. "ESV" instead of "NIV"). The list of available versions is dependent on what language you have currently selected.

Reference Format

A text string that controls the format of Bible content that you copy to the clipboard. It can contain blank lines and most other special characters, as well as any of the following "magic" variables:

  • {content}: The textual content of the Bible reference, minus the citation (e.g. "Jesus wept.")
  • {name}: The title of the copied Bible reference, minus the version information (e.g. "John 11:35")
  • {version}: The version/translation of the copied Bible reference (e.g. "ESV" or "NIV")

Some examples include:

{name} ({version})

– {name} ({version})
