Python module for working with bible references

Project Description

Python module for working with bible references

It can:

  • render reference strings sensibly and non-ambiguously; e.g. returning “Ephesians 1” when Ephesians 1:1-1:23 was specified, because there are only 23 verses in that chapter;
  • look up actual passage text using external API services;
  • fill in missing information where possible; e.g. inferring that for the inputs of book=”EPH” and start_chapter=1, the whole Ephesians 1 chapter (verses 1 to 23) was intended;
  • verify that a passage is valid; e.g. telling you that Ephesians 99 and Genesis 3:5-1:2 can’t exist;
  • add verses or chapters to the start or end of a passage, or [truncate](#passage-truncation) a passage to a given number of verses; such as for satisfying copyright restrictions; and
  • count the number of verses in a passage.

Basic Usage:

from pypassage import Passage
p = Passage(book='Genesis', start_chapter=1, start_verse=1, end_chapter=2, end_verse=3)
