The plugin is NOT developed by team, it solely implements it’s API documented on

Inspired by many similar popping up embedded scripts for Bible verses, Bible Online Popup adds an ability for easily converting Bible references like Jhn. 3:5 or John 3:5-7 into a hoverable link, so when mouse is over, it shows a pop-up frame with corresponding Bible verse and a link for reading more it on website.

To create such a reference, just write Bible verse short name, select it in the editor and click blue button “Make a Bible Popup from selection” in the toolbar, so it wraps selection in [bible_popup] shortcode.

You can also create references manually, by using [bible_popup] shortcode.


  • [bible_popup]John 3:5-7[/bible_popup]
  • [bible_popup query="John 3:5-7"]some text[/bible_popup]
  • [bible_popup trans="kjv"]John 3:5-7[/bible_popup]
