Q. How do I cite the Bible?
References to classical works, such as the Bible, do not need to appear on your References page. Do cite the Bible in-text following the example below.
Since the parts of these classical works are systematically numbered, the only differentiating factor is the various versions/translations.
- Mention which version used in the first citation of the text.
- No need to identify the version in subsequent citations unless you switch versions.
Example: (Romans 1:27 New International Version).
