I am trying to export massive amounts of scripture for blog posts on our church's website. Is there not a way to export raw HTML from the Copy Bible Text? I found this old article but that was 7 years ago.

I wonder if, Tim, if the reason you are not getting any response to your questions is due to the terminology you have used.

Many users here would be wary of being complicit in copyright theft.

Perhaps if you could explain more precisely what you are trying to achieve there may folk who can offer help.

I hadn't thought copyright, since church-use. I'd checkedalternatives. The software doesn't deliver HTML-packaged text, and no apparent easy work-around. But the copyright issue is there, I guess ... direct to web. But then, Logos is very flexible on copying.  I wonder if html specifics are the issue ... paragraphing, coloring, bolding, font/size, etc Or maybe just not much demand. It's an easy fix, code-wise.

So, once again you made me start thinking. Not only that I got up and, at random checked the NRSV.

I guess it depends on what you consider 'massive'. Without specifying church-use (is a blog church use?) the copyright notice allows, with some restrictions, up to 500 verses to be quoted if properly attributed.

Does 500 verses amount to a 'massive amount of scripture'?

As I understand it:

a few: 1-5 pages

some: 6-10

many: 11-25

a lot: 26-100

a whole bunch: 101-250

a massive: 251-500

an unbelievable: 501+

So, just barely, but these ranges vary per country (eg 'are you crazy' is often the whole book).

Looking through some of the stuff on my shelves I found a dusty old tome entitled 'Ready Reckoner' I have added this to the inside cover.
