Is there an easy way to compare chapter and verse map discrepancies of translations against original languages for a complete Book of the Bible? Kind of like the Bible Outline Browser, but for Bibles. Or, should I settle with Bible Outline Browser as the only solution?

The idea is to quickly verify Chapter boundaries of a translation against boundaries of original languages.

Example:

BHS                LEB

Jonah 1:1-16    Jonah 1:1-17

I'm not aware of any feature in Logos to do this - but https://wiki.logos.com/Bible_Verse_Maps might be helpful in what you are doing.

The Bible Outline Browser does not achieve what you want - think of it as showing pericope boundaries rather than chapter/verse. The easiest way to see the differences is with the text comparison tool. The information panel of the Bibles show what mapping is used so that you can avoid multiple examples of the same mapping.

Just a reminder that there were no chapter or verse markings in the original languages

Thank you all for the clear advice.

The discrepancies are most often pointers towards possible issues regarding outlines. Some authors don't seem to mention these issues. By knowing the verse numbers that is an issue I can track them down before I start to further investigate the author's point of view. This way I can better prioritize bibliography items to investigate.
