RefTagger is some Javascript code in rendered A Storehouse of Knowledge pages which allows a pop-up box to appear when hovering over a Bible verse. It is produced by and available from Logos Bible software.

NB: Much of the following guide is coped and adapted from RefTagger's web-site

Reference recognition

RefTagger supports all of the Bible book names and their standard abbreviations. It will recognize and tag books with only one chapter whether you cite them with or without the chapter number (e.g., Jude 9 or Jude 1:9). To avoid false hits, RefTagger will not tag whole books like Luke or whole chapters of Scripture like John 10 unless you wrap them in the Bibleref markup. The {{Bibleref}} template can be used for this. RefTagger also handles multiple verses in a row (e.g., John 3:16-18, 22; 4:2-4), portions of verses (e.g., Ps. 1:1a; 1 Cor. 15:28c), and verses through the use of the f or ff abbreviations (e.g., Gen 3:15f; Job 2:1ff), and recognizes many other common abbreviations and formats (e.g., Lk 2:1; cf. 4:4; Gal 3:3; cf. vv. 8-10; Eph 3:1 and 4:2). Whether you use a hyphen (-) or an en dash (–) (including the HTML entity: –), RefTagger will correctly recognize and tag your Bible references (e.g., Rom 5:1-10; Eph 2:8–9).

Jude 9; Jude 1:9
Luke (when using the Bibleref template)
John 10 (when using the Bibleref template)
John 3:16-18, 22; 4:2-4
Ps. 1:1; 1 Cor. 15:28
Gen 3:15f; Job 2:1ff
Lk 2:1; cf. 4:4; Gal 3:3; cf. vv. 8-10; Eph 3:1 and 4:2
Rom 5:1-10; Eph 2:8–9

Note: Bible references are case sensitive, so john 3:16 would not be tagged, nor would GEN 1:1.


RefTagger on A Storehouse of Knowledge is set to default to the New International Version (NIV).

However, RefTagger also supports citing versions different from our default version. Simply add the version abbreviation after the reference in one of the following three formats, and RefTagger will properly identify and tag your references with the appropriate version.

  • Heb 12:1-2 TNIV
  • Deut 5:5, NLT
  • Rev 21:1 (KJV)
