Usage and Commands

To use BibleBot, simply say a verse reference anywhere in a message, like Genesis 1:1 or John 1:1-5. BibleBot supports the typical Protestant canon as well as the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox deuterocanonicals, if that version supports it (see +version info below to find that information).

This page assumes that your server is using the default prefix as well as English. The prefix may be different depending on the server’s preference. Consult the help command (+biblebot) for the translated command list – this command works regardless of prefix and language.

All subcommands marked with an asterisk (*) are only usable if the user has the Manage Server permission.

v9.1-beta is missing certain commands that will be implemented in v9.1. These are crossed out on the table below.

Rescue Options

The +biblebot command can be used to perform any command in the default English, regardless of preferences (including prefix). This can be used as a fallback in the event you accidentally set the wrong language or for things like our Automatic Daily Verse setup page. To utilize this, you’d use any of the commands above but in this fashion – +biblebot language set english.
