        Can you specify what country this language is spoken, any other spellings, and what Bible you would be interested in reading if available?

        There are a couple languages that could be considered "Zo"

          Thank you for contacting the American Bible Society. Scripture versions are the intellectual property of various publishers and license owners. To give access to the version via the API, we have to get special permission from the various publishers, and we have not been granted permission to provide those versions as an API. If you already have or can obtain licenses directly from the license holder to use those versions we may be able to make those available to you through the API, given you are able to provide written permission or signed agreement from the rights holder. Most Korean versions are the intellectual property of the Korean Bible Society. I would suggest following up with them.

          http://www.bskorea.or.kr/

          To help build trust with the publishers and intellectual property owners, we've built the Fair Use Management System into the API. This helps us provide an extra layer of data on how Scripture content is being consumed by API users and ultimately your application's end users. We are really trying to emphasize transparency with how Scripture content is used via our API, as that will show publishers and IP owners that we are protecting their content and ensuring it maintains the integrity Scripture deserves.

            Yes, this is a copyright/licensing issue. Scripture versions are the intellectual property of various publishers and license owners. To give access to the version via the API, we have to get special permission from the various publishers, and we have not been granted permission to provide those versions as an API. If you already have or can obtain licenses directly from the license holder to use those versions we may be able to make those available to you through the API, given you are able to provide written permission or signed agreement from the rights holder.

            Please contact this following publisher if interested in this version:

                  Hello Everyone,

                  I would like to invite you to sign up for the API through our new platform API.Bible. There is a lot more documentation and examples on how to do things. You can also fetch all available versions in real time.

                  From there you will be prompted to apply, and then will receive an email with some follow-up questions to approve your app.

                  Best wishes,
                  Amanda Crono

                    The military bible has study pages/sections that relate passages and lessons to experiences one might have while being in the military. As you may have seen, the covers are also customized for different branches of the military. There is also a bible for military wives.

                      Regarding Portuguese, we only have the 1 available.

                      The other texts belong to the Portugal Bible Society and have not authorized us to provide it as an API.

                      However, if you are able to obtain licenses directly from the Bible Society to use those versions we may be able to make those available to you through our API, given you are able to provide written permission or signed agreement from the rights holder. Please follow the link below to get in touch with them.

                        Hello Kennet,

                        The Bible Society of India holds the rights to this text. They have not granted us API access. However, if you are able to get an agreement directly with them that gives you permissions to use this feature, and send us the signed copy we can provide you the API. Below is the contact information I have for them. Feel free to copy me (acrono@americanbible.org) so they know you have been in contact with us. 

                        URL: http://www.bsind.org/
                        License Contact: Unknown
                        Director: Mani Chacko

                        Best wishes,

                        -American Bible Society

                          At this time there is not a plan for this, however we always refer back to our forums when we are looking to initiate new products/features. Now that it has been added to this forum we will keep it in mind and you will be notified if we ever create one.

                            Thank you for contacting the American Bible Society. The versions we are currently able to provide are through obtaining a license for that version, and having the available resources to implement. Currently, we don't hold a license to the version, which is why we don't have it available. However, we continue to seek out new versions and when resources permit we will pursue obtaining a license to those versions.

                            You have already taken the first step to request that this version be provided in the future, by adding this idea and voting for it in this forum. It also ensures that you will be notified when the new version is added.

                            Best wishes,

                            -American Bible Society

                                Please follow this link to learn how to change versions: http://support.americanbible.org/knowledgebase/articles/812106

                                To change a plan after already adding it to your study list, you would need to delete it and then re-add after you have changed to the version you prefer.

                                  If you are encountering this problem, one thing that worked for me was switching off wifi and using my data. For some reason it is not compatible with all networks. However, we are working to resolve.

                                        The majority of the versions we currently provide are through obtaining a license for that version, and having the available resources to implement. Currently, we don't hold a license to the version, which is why we don't have it available. However, we continue to seek out new versions and when resources permit we will pursue obtaining a license to those versions.

                                        Given that you posted your request here, you will be notified when new developments are made. Any others who vote for this topic will also receive updates on the progress.
