Verse Links is an easily extendable plugin that will find all references to Bible verses and passages within blog posts and comments and automatically link them to a verse lookup site of your choice. For example, Genesis 1:1-2 becomes Genesis 1:1-2. Common abbreviations and book names variants also work, such as Gen 1:1, First Timothy 2:3 and 1 Tim 2:3.

The sites included by default are:

To add additional sites you simply need to provide the url patterns for the site in the sites.php file.

In addition to linking the verses to reference sites you have the option to enable tooltips which will display the verse text when visitors mouse over the references on your site. You can adjust the appearance of these tooltips by editing the verselinks.css file.
