How do I put Bible quotes in APA format?


To cite the Bible in APA format:

  • Do not include in References list.
  • Cite in text only.
  • Identify the version used in the first citation in the text.

Example: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Gen. 1:1 King James Version).
