The Bible class provides a simple way of loading and printing Bible verses. Here is some code that demonstrates how to use the object:



<?
// This loads the Bible.class and makes it available
require_once('Bible.class');

// This creates a bible object with the King James Version loaded
$bible = new Bible('kjv');

// This returns the selected verses in a blockquote tag ready for display
$page->content .= $bible->parseVerse('Psalms 23');

// This changes the bible translation to the New Revised Standard Version
// This translation may not be available
$bible->setTranslation('nrsv');

// This returns the selected verses in a blockquote tag ready for display
$page->content .= $bible->parseVerse('Psalms 23');

// This demonstrates what happens when you try to load a translation you
// don't have installed
$bible->setTranslation('xyz');

// This returns the selected verses in a blockquote tag ready for display
$page->content .= $bible->parseVerse('Psalms 23');

// Because of the site (approx 5MB) of the bible XML file, you will want
// to free the object as soon as possible
unset($bible);
?>

Here is how that code looks when it is run:

1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Psalms 23 (KJV)
1The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; 3he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name's sake. 4Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff- they comfort me. 5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
Psalms 23 (NRSV)

Here is the Bible object source code. It may run out to the right a bit.
