I just created one myself but its all a verbal lookup. I say Open bible, the shortcut asks for text, I say John three colon sixteen and it open Logos Correctly. Both ways are great ways to automate Logos. Mine probably isn’t useful in the middle of a service :-)

I also created  this one with a Siri shortcut for “clipboard Bible” if I’m on a website and copy a reference to the clipboard and say clipboard Bible it will open the reference I copied.

Great stuff! I'm not a fan of voice-interactions, but I have updated my shortcut with way better link detection now. I'll post links below (writing this on a PC, but will post links from my phone), but my shortcut is now available from the share-sheet (if you highlight text and choose "share" or use the share button on a website/app). In terms of it's current capabilities:

Bible Reference:

There are two options here - 1st is "Input from clipboard" with a mini-preview of the text being used (this will show text/links from the sharesheet instead of the clipboard if that's how you accessed the shortcut), the 2nd is for manual entry. If you use the first option it will search the text/body text of URL for all bible references - if it finds more than one it will ask you to select it from a menu, but if there's only one it will skip ahead.

Once it knows what reference to look at, the next stage is "Version" selection (I would call it "Translation" but obviously you might use original languages). This will give you a menu where you choose the version you want to open (LEB, ESV etc) from a list that you define when installing the shortcut. If you only want to use one bible, delete all the other options at the setup stage and it won't ask you to select them - it will just skip to opening it.

Logos Search:

This will ask whether you want to do a "Basic" or "Bible" search, then ask what text to input - clipboard/shortcut text (with preview) or manually entered text - once selected, the appropriate search will open.

Dictionary Search:

This will ask what text to input (same as above), then ask which dictionary you'd like to search - as with bible versions, you set these up when installing the app - again, if only one is selected, it will go straight there.

Guides:

Passage Guide and Exegetical Guide will offer the same methods of selecting input for your verse entry as the Bible Reference section does. I haven't even bothered doing input text for the Bible Word Study or Topic Guide as they can be really fussy - they'll just open the guide in the app with the last input that was viewed.

Notes:

I imagine you'll want to edit this for yourselves - it's right at the bottom of the shortcut so not hard to find.

As it stands, this presents a menu with the name of my default notes file (Bible Reading Notes) or "Manual Entry" where you type in the name of the notes file that you want it to open. You could swap that menu for a list if you wanted to just add 2-3 different files, or if you have loads like I do, you could keep it as it is now except to change the first item to contain the name of your default notes file.

Both shortcuts required - the second isn’t visible outside the shortcuts app but contains the code needed to search the clipboard (dramatically improved from previo versions). Just saves me from having to amend it in multiple places.

I’ve just realised how rude that looked as a response. I meant to say that I planned to add voice searches but haven’t started it yet because I’m not that inclined to use them myself. Glad someone else has done it!

No worrlies, didn’t take it as rude at all. I’m glad there are different options for different preferences.

Thanks for the shortcut!

How do I get the shortcut to show references from books with a number in front (e.g. 1 Corinthians, 2 Timothy). I type in like 1 Corinthians 1:1 but it doesn’t work. 

EDIT: Nevermind. I was doing the first option rather than manual entry. Manual entry works fine.

It ought to have worked anyway if the reference was on the clipboard, but I've just realised that I managed to mess up the reference checker at some point before sharing it. I've fixed it and generally tidied it up a bit.
