The WordPress ESV Plugin can automatically scan posts, looking for Scripture references. References can be turned into links to the text on the ESV website, can have the Scripture passage automatically included on your site, using the Tippy plugin references can be turned into tooltips containing the Scripture text, or references can be ignored.

The plugin is highly configurable, allowing the user to have control over several actions. The user is also able to style the appearance of included Scripture passages by editing the css file that comes with the plugin.
