There are three ways to search for passages in the Bible module. You can select from the Book menu, search by a specific passage, or use a keyword search.

Before searching, you need to select a specific translation from the menu on the left. To use the passage selector, click on the Book menu, then choose a book and chapter of the Bible; this will load all the verses in that chapter. To search for a specific range of verses, type in the passage and press Enter. The Bible passage search also recognizes shortened versions of book names. To do a keyword search, type in your search term in the search box on the right.

As with songs and other presentations, you can apply a template to Bible passages to format them the way you need. Bibles also include several extra settings that are unique to Bible passages.
