Table of Bible Books, Chapters, and Verse Counts

It’s tough to find a nice, usable database table with the number of chapters in each book and the number of verses in each chapter. I need this for a project I’m going to be building soon to loop through this data, and I thought I’d share it here now that I’ve got it set up. You should be able to copy / paste this table directly into Excel, Access, or your database system. I’m sorry about books over 61 chapters; I couldn’t get them pasted in here correctly.

BOOK CH1 CH2 CH3 CH4 CH5 CH6 CH7 CH8 CH9 CH10 CH11 CH12 CH13 CH14 CH15 CH16 CH17 CH18 CH19 CH20 CH21 CH22 CH23 CH24 CH25 CH26 CH27 CH28 CH29 CH30 CH31 CH32 CH33 CH34 CH35 CH36 CH37 CH38 CH39 CH40 CH41 CH42 CH43 CH44 CH45 CH46 CH47 CH48 CH49 CH50 CH51 CH52 CH53 CH54 CH55 CH56 CH57 CH58 CH59 CH60 CH61 CH62CH63 CH64 CH65 CH66 CH67 CH68 CH69 CH70 CH71 CH72 CH73 CH74 CH75 CH76 CH77 CH78 CH79 CH80 CH81 CH82 CH83 CH84 CH85 CH86 CH87 CH88 CH89 CH90 CH91 CH92 CH93 CH94 CH95 CH96 CH97 CH98 CH99 CH100 CH101 CH102 CH103 CH104 CH105 CH106 CH107 CH108 CH109 CH110 CH111 CH112 CH113 CH114 CH115 CH116 CH117 CH118 CH119 CH120 CH121 CH122 CH123 CH124 CH125 CH126 CH127 CH128 CH129 CH130 CH131 CH132 CH133 CH134 CH135 CH136 CH137 CH138 CH139 CH140 CH141 CH142 CH143 CH144 CH145 CH146 CH147 CH148 CH149 CH150

    Thanks! You save me several hours of work!

      No problem, I hope they proved useful to you!

    First, this is fantastic, thanks very much for sharing. I have found one discrepancy so far: the table has 21 verses for Job 27, but it should be 23. (Checked in NAS, NIV, ESV, etc.).

    • August 13, 2013 at 7:40 am

      Vince, thanks for the heads up. I’ve corrected the verse count for Job 27.

  4. August 12, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    Thank you very much for this!

  5. August 27, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    much appreciated!

    Just an FYI, Numbers 16 should have 50 verses not 35. Thanks

    Sorry but just finished studying Numbers and notice 3 more.
    Numbers 25 should be 18 verses not 19.
    Numbers 29 should be 40 verses not 39.
    Numbers 30 should be 16 verses not 17.
    That should take care of numbers. Thanks.

    This is wonderful. Thank you very much. I think I know why you couldn’t get the chapters and verses to paste correctly beyond CH61. You don’t have a space between CH61 and CH62, and the same with the few books that have that many chapters. For Psalms and Isaiah, in the column corresponding to CH62, the first numbers in each row don’t have a space between them.
    Once I corrected those things, it imported perfectly into a table. This saved me a ton of work.

    • February 12, 2015 at 1:51 pm

      Thanks Katie – glad you found this useful; someday I’ll have to come back and revisit it and update the sources; I can’t remember what version I originally used, but these numbers were accurate from that version.

      Chet
