Scripture from your Discord client to your heart.

A Kerygma Digital Ministry

Update: v9.2-beta (build 559)


Noticeable Changes

  • Updated links in /biblebot.
  • Optimized verse processing, more noticeable in heavier requests.
  • Implemented emboldening queries in /search results for API.Bible (ab) versions.
  • Added /booklist, which will show all available books in your preferred translation (or a specified one like /booklist abbreviation:KJV).
  • The abbreviation parameter in /versioninfo is now optional and will use your preferred translation if one is not specified.
  • Added source information to /versioninfo, mostly useful for our developers.
  • Optimized all DB requests.
  • Moved our production database to France (from East US), for reduced connection times with the rest of our infrastructure, which is in Germany.
  • Added newer Markdown formatting in certain commands.
  • Sprinkled some new emojis into responses and replaced some existing emojis.
  • /formatting will now mention the default ignoring brackets, as they are always available regardless of server setting.
  • Added number markers to paragraphed resources.

Unnoticeable Changes

  • Updated to .NET 7.
  • Optimized memory allocation of some utility functions.
  • Added more tests…
  • Improved CI configurations, hoping to eventually move them all onto GitLab.


  • Fixed where duplicate verses on the same version would be processed, instead of just returning one.
  • Fixed where invalid verse references were causing crashes.
  • Fixed support for StageChannels by updating to a more stable release of disnake.
  • Fixed where duplicate verses across different versions would erroneously ignore the latter references.
  • Fixed where Greek Esther could not be referenced.


It’s been a productive month for BibleBot, with many improvements to performance and user experience, including a whole new command! We hope you like it!
