List of Book Abbreviations

BibleGet’s engine is capable of recognizing the names of the books of the Bible in 22 different languages, according to the table “BibleGet I/O => Books of the Bible in all Languages“. It is possible that this table contain errors, so if you notice any corrections that need to be made or if there are valid alternative forms for the names of the books in one language or another, please send your feedback with the necessary information so that we can update the table and make the service that much better. Or if you would like to see another language which is not yet supported, please send again the necessary information with the names of the books of the bible in that language, and we will see to adding it to the table.
