Ok, this may be an odd tip, but I copy and paste from Logos to Facebook quite frequently, and Facebook lamely converts ASCII to emojis when it can.  When I copy verses from Logos, I have a custom copy/paste format where verses are set off by parens like this:  (7).  But, of course, verse 8 causes a sunglasses smiley emoji to be pasted in.  I like parens so in my copy/paste format, I inserted an unprintable character after the open paren and before the closed paren.  

Now, when I copy and paste into Facebook, verse 8 looks like it's supposed to and isn't a sunglasses smiley!

This might be well known, and there might be other solutions, and if so, I'd like to know because I'll invariably forget this at some point.  :)
