You will probably see some security dialogs that might make downloading let alone installation difficult, here’s how to download and install in that case, this happens because I use a self-signed certificate to sign the software

When the download completes, launch the installer (if using Microsoft Exporer or Edge, click on “Execute” near the bottom of the browser window; if using Chrome, click on the downloaded file in the download bar at the bottom of the browser window; if using Firefox, go to “Downloads” from the browser menu and click on the downloaded executable there). The installation process will launch and will probably take a few minutes, a few Microsoft components need to be downloaded and installed in order for the plugin to work. You may be requested to restart your computer in the process, if that is the case the installation will pick up again and complete after the restart. Once the installation has completed, every time you open Microsoft Word you’ll see a new menu “BibleGet I/O” with it’s own ribbon area. The icon buttons on the ribbon area allow you to set preferences for text formatting of the Bible quotes, see information about the plugin and renew data from the BibleGet server (such as supported Bible Versions, and Languages for the Books of the Bible that the BibleGet server can understand), get instructions for formulating Bible Quotes and using the Add-In, send donations or feedback. There are two ways of inserting Bible quotes into your document: by opening a dialog window where you can choose the Bible versions to quote from and type in your desired quote, or by writing the desired quote directly in your document and selecting it and clicking on the relative icon button. There are keyboard shortcuts for the icon buttons on the ribbon, when you press “ALT” you can see a hint. “ALT+q” is the shortcut for the BibleGet menu, which can then be continued for the single icon items.

This project is released as open source, in the hopes that others might collaborate on the project, or that what I have not succeeded in accomplishing might be picked up again by someone else and made to be of better service to mankind.

This plugin facilitates inserting Bible quotes into your documents.

It communicates with the BibleGet I/O service endpoint for retrieval of Bible quotes.

You can set your preferred text formatting for the Bible quotes so that you don’t have to format them manually every time you insert them into your document.

Credits for the icon images used for the buttons are to be given to https://dryicons.com/icon-packs/wysiwyg-classic .

      Hello Tami, what version of Word are you using?

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble. Unfortunately it is very difficult to debug MSWord addons, so I’m not sure what might be causing this issue. It kind of seems to be a hit and miss thing, I myself had some trouble for a while and then it started working again.

      I have seen that the addon does not always install correctly on 32 bit systems. On 64 bit systems it seems to install correctly but Word won’t always allow it to run. I’m hoping to get more information on what is causing this… I’m sorry it isn’t working for you.

    I cannot get it to enable in Word 2016. It is listed on the inactive add-ins list. When I check it and click OK, it does not give an error. I restart Word, but it does not show. When I check back in the add-ins list it is still inactive.
