Hi,  I just recently ran across your API capability.  I have not found the answers to my questions quite yet:


1) Is NIV supported ?  Where is the list of supported translations ?  Is it available for a fee ?

2) We have a main site ( and a Bible Bowl site ( at the current time.  Do I need to register for a new API key for each ?  Note that some hacks were done on the Bible Bowl site to get scriptures - with appropriate links and credits to the source.  Something better than a hack (like your API) would be nice.  We don't have anything yet on our main site, but some scripture popups when mousing over a scripture (on our sermon page for example) would be nice.

3) Is it ok to cache the results ?  This sometimes is faster than an API call each time.  Cached results would still have the appropriate credits/references.

An API key for the main domain is enough.

We'd prefer you don't cache, but you could if it's small and temporary -- not pulling down the whole Bible, for example. We don't have sub-licensing rights, just the right to share the content via the site. (Of course, for the public domain Bibles, there's no problem.)
