Bible Search API

  1. Add german versions of the bible

    So many versions available but not a single one in German!
    Ideally you could integrate Luther 2017 or Schlachter 2000 translations.

    If you would do this, you would be the only service to provide an API for the German Bible

  2. Create example code to use the API in c#

    It would be great to have official or community supported examples of how to the use the API in C# (.NET). Code samples or reference implementations would optimally cover how to handle authentication, fetching content and complying with the FUMS reporting.

  3. Add RNKSV and NKRV version

    kor-NKRV and kor-RNKSV are available at bibles.org. Could you add these versions into the API. Especially, NKRV is the most popular bible version in Korea. Thanks for your consideration.

  4. Query usage statistics

    The API limits to 5000 queries/day. Current usage of the month should be available to the developer.

  5. Fix broken references (eng-GNTD:Zech.4.10b, eng-GNTD:Matt.1.6b, eng-GNTD:Mark.16.9)

    If you walk through verse by verse, the next verse pointer points to these IDs, but they do not exist. If you walk backwards using previous, they are still pointed to, but they do not exist.

  8. Support for Commercial Apps and Websites

    Current licensing only allows for non-commercial usage. This feature would support a paid model for use in commercial apps or websites.

  9. Return results for over-spanned searches

    If I search "James 1-6”, I should receive James 1-5 (since there is no chapter 6). Currently the API returns nothing.

    Add audio recordings of the Bible translations to the API by allowing for each end point that returns Scripture to also contain a URL to retrieve the matching audio.

  17. Section Support

    Allow for retrieval of individual sections within the Bible in addition to chapters.

    This would provide a list of sections in a book or chapter, such as “The Story of Creation” and return just the text for that section.

  18. Retrieve chapters and passages in additional versions

    Allow for specifying additional versions to include in a response to support parallel views. This would take into account the varying versification systems between some versions to ensure that the correct verses were being returned.
